Kristina is a delight to work with! As I began to plateau with self learning of Spanish, Kristina offered a lot of experience in language learning. She balances her curriculum well with coaching, tools/resources, and conversation, which aim to provide an immersive language-learning experience. She also facilitates an environment that is both professional and fun. And I can't complain about her hourly rate. Thanks Kristina!

Angela is an incredibly patient and knowledgeable tutor. She works closely with the student to understand their goals for fluency and as the lessons begin to pick up momentum she skillfully identifies where individual trouble points are and how to effectively address them. She makes her lessons interactive and always brings in her cultural perspective to the lessons. I look forward to my weekly sessions with Angela.

Sophie is an amazing tutor. She begins by gaining a thorough understanding of what you hope to accomplish with the lessons and gives you materials and resources needed to help you to fulfill those goals. She is very organized and has a clear plan for each lesson. Her lessons are well explained with different types of exercises so it doesn't get boring. She encourages learning of French culture alongside the language, and as a native French speaker, her knowledge of expressions and details needed for true fluency is fabulous. She also understands school curriculums and AP testing very well to be able to help prepare for those. She was able to teach me what I wasn't learning well enough in school, and I feel much more confident after having her lessons going into my AP test. I highly recommend France@yours for anyone looking to gain fluency and a true understanding of French!

Youlian's lessons are very well organized and planned, and she has an absolutely fantastic ability to explain the nuances and subtleties of day-to-day Mandarin. Every lesson includes listening comprehension, reading comprehension (I'm just using Pinyin for now but she covers Hanzi as well), and conversation practice, and Youlian always provides me with very helpful feedback.

Verified review

Scott really helps me to improve my pronunciation and my understanding of English. He works with me to fix my pronunciation mistakes. Now I’m more confident while I’m speaking, whereas before I used to be very anxious about speaking English. In addition, I enjoy meeting with Scott because we talk about various topics like travelling, movies, nature, culture, and so on. That makes English practice more enjoyable. Scott is very enthusiastic about learning languages and he has strong experience. Thanks to that, he provides great advice to progress. Together, during our lessons, we practice pronunciation, we review some grammar rules, and we practice English like in real life so he can point out mistakes.

    In the beginning, I was really afraid of talking to others in English because I know that I can’t speak English well. However, after some lessons, I become more and more confident and fell in love with the lessons. I tried speaking to others and they answered me. This greatly encouraged me.

      I am an intermediate tennis player looking to have fun while increasing my personal fitness. Farmer John gave me a customized professional tennis lesson where I was able to cover the topics of my choice. There was a good balance of instruction combined with practice to help me improve and learn the game correctly. His teaching style and feedback was positive and encouraging. He has inspired me to play more tennis and strive to be the best tennis player possible.

      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.
