Ruby de Félix, General Manager

Hi everyone! My name is Ruby Centeno de Félix, I have been teaching for more than 20 years, and now I´m running our own business, Time for English and Spanish School. I always had the dream of creating a different method of teaching English or Spanish.
A method in which the teacher could develop a closer relationship with the students. Time for English and Spanish, is not just a method designed so that students can express themselves properly, is also focused on helping them to understand texts without confusing verbs and their meanings. 
After several years of academic development, I had the chance alongside my husband Fernando Felix to make what once it seemed like a kind of utopia. Together we have created Time for English and Spanish School, an institute of Language with a different approach, in order to provide students with the tools and essential support to achieve a level of professionalism about Spanish language, and of course, helping them and show them how to preserve marine species.
