Laurey Taylor was given my son private tuition for 8 years. She is a wonderful teacher, very patient and understanding, with a nice sense of humour and with great empathie. Her lessons always were very creative and imaginative and helped my son to be very successful in school. We were the whole time very happy and thankful for her wonderful work.

We hired Calvin to help our 16 year old daughter with Pre-Calc. He was professional and responsive to our concerns and needs. He was proactive in that he reviewed the text book lessons she was on prior to her sessions. He never cancelled on us. Our daughter really liked the one on one time to get back on track. She liked that he showed and explained what to do and how to do it instead of reading the instructions to her. We would use his services again. Her grade went up.

Grace is a patient, fun, and dedicated tutor. My two girls enjoy their lessons with Grace. Grace has made it fun for them to learn. They originally started with after-school Chinese lessons at a learning center. Because of the larger classroom size, my kids were not corrected and only learned to copy really well. Grace has corrected their stroke order and established a strong foundation in their reading and writing. We don't speak Mandarin at home so next she will work on their conversation. I am so glad and fortunate to have found Grace!

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.

Lina is an absolutely fantastic tutor. I have had Spanish lessons and tutorials on and off for the past 15 years and she stands out as exceptional. She is very open and flexible to adapting the tutorials to whatever you would like to study/discuss and suits you best (which contrasts somewhat to a few previous Spanish tutors I have had in the past, who forced me to learn things I had already learned previously). Her enthusiasm and encouragement are second to none, and her many years of teaching are very clear. Having taught many students in private tutoring for maths and science myself, I was certainly inspired by her teaching methods. Her tutorials are a joy, and even after only a few lessons I am already a lot more confident in my speaking and listening skills. Thank you Lina!

Anish was excellent at walking through some of the tougher GRE concepts with me, ensuring I was prepared for all of the different types of questions on the exam. I am much more comfortable and confident in tackling the material after working with him.

Raffa is an excellent Spanish tutor! He's taught me more in two months than I'd have learned two semesters of university language classes. Highly cost effective! He clearly has a great deal of experience and expertise in structuring curriculum, but he's also flexible and allows me to steer the lessons towards the vocabulary and grammar I am most interested in acquiring. I am also an educator and I have complete respect for his approach and commitment to teaching. I give him my highest recommendation.

Hope is an amazing tutor. She is very patient but firm with my daughter and provides encouragement throughout the sessions. My daughter truly looks forward to her time with Hope and makes every effort to have any additional assignments completed. This action from a teenager is a true testament to Hope's skills and her ability to nurture her students. So happy we found her and I would highly recommend Hope to all my family and friends.

I took few classes from Chris last year and I must say that it has been phenomenal. Chris has got an amazing depth on different accents, language and grammar. I improved my accent a lot by learning some techniques. I will recommend Chris to anyone who is looking for accent reduction or adopt a different accent or simply talk in the public.

I can’t say enough about how great Laurence is as a French teacher. She is professional, very conscientious and is always focused on integrating new learning materials that she thinks will challenge me. She is also flexible - when I wanted to focus on a specific subject, she went out of her way to find relevant materials to use. She is always on time for lessons and again, is flexible if I need to change a lesson time. She is also incredibly kind and patient, and is a lovely person. I highly recommend Laurence as a French teacher.

About

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.
