“Richard has extensive experience in every area of teaching English and also in the preparation of students for certifications at every level. Highly prepared, rigorous and effective, he carries out his training sessions / presentations in an extremely fruitful manner; the time he dedicated to our group of teachers has been intensively exploited. Richard was very professional and organized, and always maintained a high level interest and attention thanks to the schedule he carefully planned, based on the needs expressed by our group.”

Daniela Del Sero

English Teacher, Liceo Classico Tito Livio Padova


“Richard is an exceptional teacher. When I was a student in Malta, he trained me and helped me to pass the FCE in just a few weeks. My starting level of English was very low. Richard was always a supportive teacher and this is one of his main attributes. I would highly recommend him, even if you are starting from scratch. With his skills and experience,  he will succeed in turning you into a good English speaker.”

"Richard's support was very valuable for me, he willingly offered his assistance to me and his assistance was very helpful to make me pass the IELTS exam with the desired score as he was able to teach me the tricks and the right methodology to pass the exam successfully.
Apart from his professional skills, his kindness and good personality is an added value that makes him a good teacher.
Frankly whenever I will need an assistance again for the IELTS I will go for him and recommend him for anyone who will go for this test"

“Richard Twigg is an exceptional manager. He has a diverse range of skills and has to be the best Director of Studies and Manager that I have ever come across. He takes a personal interest in each of his employees and ensures there are plenty of development opportunities for them and that they are placed in the best positions for their skills sets. He also makes sure that his staff have everything they need in place to do their job. When any technical issues arise, he tackles them immediately to enable things to run smoothly. He is proactive in seizing opportunities to develop the centre and diversify its provision. I can’t recommend him highly enough.”
