Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a Spanish tutor do?

The goal of a Spanish tutor is to help students improve their Spanish reading, writing, comprehension, and conversation skills. The tutor’s approaches may vary, depending on whether the instruction is individual or a group class. Many Spanish tutors practice immersion — meaning they will speak only Spanish with their pupils. For students with little to no Spanish experience, the Spanish tutor may use a mix of Spanish and English to accustom their students to speaking the language.

A Spanish tutor can offer a wide range of services to their students. For students currently enrolled in a Spanish class through their middle school or high school, a Spanish tutor can help them with homework and language practice, as well as expanding their understanding of their current school curriculum. For adults, Spanish tutors will have different approaches based on that student’s need. Academics and those seeking high-level professional development for their career will often have more intensive and targeted lessons, drills, and interactive speaking tests. For adults who wish to learn conversational Spanish for fun or for travel, lessons may revolve around learning commonly used phrases and practicing speaking in relaxed settings.

How much do Spanish tutors charge?

Nationally, the average cost for a Spanish tutor ranges from $30 to $40 per hour. The cost for a Spanish tutor can vary depending on whether you choose private instruction or group lessons. Geographic location can affect cost; tutors in expensive cities and pricier regions command higher rates than in rural areas and small towns. The experience and education of the Spanish tutor will also affect their rates. For adult education, many people learning Spanish choose to join a Spanish school with tutors who teach group classes and also offer private tutoring for students. Typically these schools charge a monthly tuition that gives students access to a set number of classes per week, with private tutoring available at an additional cost. One example of an average cost is a monthly tuition of $200, which includes five 90-minute group lessons per month. Monthly tuition can vary depending on the school and the teachers. Short-term workshops are also a way to learn Spanish. Students may work with a Spanish tutor and group of other students at their skill level for a short period of time. One example of an average price is $100 for an eight-week course, with one 60-minute group class per week.

My 15 year old son wanted to brush up his Spanish before going back to high school. Although it was only a couple lessons, he had a great experience with Emilio!

Noelle has been giving my 10 year old daughter Spanish lessons for about 5 months now and we have been very happy with how fast she is learning the language! My daughter adores Noelle and is genuinely excited for her lessons each week!

Absolutely love working with Noelle. She is patient and fun, making the lessons fly by! She is tough (in a good way) and dedicated to her work. She is an excellent teacher and I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to learn Spanish.

I've been taking Spanish lessons with Noëlle for about a month now and I couldn't be happier with her as my teacher. I'm taking two lessons a week and I've already made some noticeable progress. Noëlle makes the lessons fun and tries to find ways to make me remember vocabularies that I have trouble with. She's also a super cool, friendly and happy person, which is an added bonus. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Emilio has been a great Spanish tutor during my summer living in LA! He was really flexible about location and time, and working around my work schedule. It's clear that he has experience teaching because he's able to work through the lessons in a comprehensive way while also giving in the moment feedback on pronunciation and grammar. My Spanish has seen significant improvements over the last 8 weeks. Highly recommend!

I have just finished my 3rd class with Profesor John and I have loved every minute of it. I truly look forward to my lessons with him. He always comes with the best attitude and encourages me the whole way through. I’ve taken several year of Spanish in college so I have some knowledges of the language. I am taking his class to work on my confidence and conversation. He leaves you with great material that you can use in your day to day. I would highly recommend his class! It’s convenient, personable and fun. I look forward to getting to my Spanish speaking goal.
