My name is Laura Castillo. I am a language teacher (EN/FRES), translator and interpreter. In December 2013 I got my CELTA certificate (Grade: Pass B) at Hyland Language Centre.
I am conscientious and creative and I always adapt the materials and focus of my classes according to my students' needs and interests.
I offer dynamic classes that help my students improve their general linguistic awareness, as well as develop their conversational skills, always through a realistic use of language and contextual information.
I use both regular class books and additional tools, such as games, flash cards, diagrams, real materials, etc.
I have been teaching English at different levels for 7 years. I have successfully taught both groups and one to one classes and I have extensive experience working with children and teenagers as well as with adults. I am familiar with Cambridge ESOL textbooks and I have successfully prepared more than 50 students for all Cambridge ESOL examinations (from KET to CAE; BEC Vantage and ILEC), as well as the TOEFL and Trinity.
I charge 25 euros for a complete class with grammar activities and printed materials.
For conversation practice only, please contact me.

¡Genial! Laura is an excellent teacher. I really enjoyed taking classes with her. Laura is a dynamic, cheerful, and honest teacher. She works very hard. I reached my goal and it was because of her help. I do recommend her. Honestly she is good. I have no doubt that if I need an english teacher again, She will be the one that i will call first.
Thank for your help Laura, it has been a pleasure for me.
Pati, thank you so much for your nice words. You are a great student. Your effort, motivation and dynamism made teaching you a breeze. Helping you getting your IELTS has been a really fulfilling experience. I wish you all the best.
