TEACHER JEROME TAGHER

Jerome Tagher has worked as a language teacher and translator for more than 25 years, first in the Paris region and now in Malaga. Born into a French-British family, languages have always played an important role in his life, both personally and professionally.

After starting his career in a language school in Paris, teaching mainly in companies, he moved to the Languages and Culture department of HEC Paris, one of Europe’s leading management schools, where he would remain until his move to Malaga, Spain. During the 7 years she spent at HEC, she taught in various programs (Masters, MBA, undergraduate, staff training) and, since moving to Spain, she has been on the jury for the highly competitive HEC entrance exam.

In addition to HEC, he has taught at various higher education institutions in and around Paris (Ecole Polytechnique, Université de Versailles St Quentin en Yvelines, Lycée Grandchamp, Université de Cergy Pontoise).

Since moving to Malaga, he has worked as a freelance teacher in many consolidated companies (Mayoral, BBVA, Clínica Victoria, Accenture, Oracle, Airzone) and in language schools. Since 2018 he has been working with Michael Dawson, focusing primarily on Cambridge exam preparation.

In addition to his teaching career, he also works as a translator, mainly in dubbing and subtitling for French television and DVD publishers.
