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.

Celia is a great teacher. She is patient and caters her lessons towards her students. She really wants me to understand Spanish and puts a lot of effort into teaching me. I 100% recommend her for all ages and levels. She has helped me learn so much in a short period of time.

I only have the best things to say about Professor John. He customizes the lessons perfectly to my level and always has fun material to learn. I am gaining confidence in my language knowledge that will allow me to speak Spanish with native speakers. Might have to take some other language courses from him as well! 😊 Highly recommend! 🎉

I have really enjoyed working with Alfredo. It’s only been two weeks so far but his style and guidance have helped me tremendously in learning Spanish in ways that Babbel fell short. As an intermediate speaker there are certain subjects and questions I have had for a long time that Alfredo has tailored our lessons around. The way he customizes his teaching and genuinely cares about you learning is very evident. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to improve their skills.
