I have been taking Spanish lessons from Ms. Price. She is incredibly personable, knowledgeable and helpful. My Spanish skills have soared since I've started with her. Very friendly, she is an excellent teacher. She knows where weak points are and knows how to explain advanced subjects in a way which is very understandable. I am definitely going to continue lessons and I highly recommend Ms. Price to anyone who is seeking to improve their language skills.

I had a fantastic experience with IDESLI. I logged on to Thumbtack one morning to find a Spanish tutor. I needed help brushing up on my speaking skills for a new job. Literally within an hour, I was corresponding with IDESLI, and they were pairing me with a classes package and a program that was a perfect fit for my needs. I started classes the following day! IDESLI was professional, friendly, and did I mention well-located? Right in the heart of the Financial District. I worked with Carolina, who knew that the most important thing for me was to talk a lot in Spanish, so we had some great conversations, and she helped me throughout with learning lingo, colloquial terms, etc. She also gave me some more formal homework on remembering verb conjugation and vocabulary that was specifically relevant to my field. I hope to continue participating in the IDESLI community by attending some of their upcoming Spanish movie nights. :)

Rafa is a great Spanish teacher. During our lessons we typically talk the whole time about various subject matter. Rafa then sends homework and has his students work on grammar/vocabulary before class begins. This is a really great way to learn and very helpful for anyone who is trying to learn Spanish.

Roslyn Raney has worked for the One-to-One Tutoring Service since 2004. She has tutored many students in French, German, and Spanish for our service very successfully. Adults who want to learn a language for travel purposes have been particularly impressed with her ability to teach them what they need to know to be able to converse successfully in the country they are traveling to. She also has tutored numerous high school students as well. I have received many positive comments from clients who worked with Roslyn. She came to our service having taught languages at the college level for a number of years at San Jose State and College of San Mateo.

Darya tutored and advised me throughout my senior year of high school and my first year at college. Having Darya by my side throughout the stress of a year and a half journey has had a significant impact in my life. Although Darya's main responsibility was to tutor me for my Advanced Placement (AP) Literature class, she went above and beyond to what I expected of an English tutor. She helped me find my inner voice as a writer through tutoring me about grammar, organization, and vocabulary. She also helped boost my confidence as an underprivileged Latina studying in the STEM field as a computer science major at the University of California: Santa Cruz. I passed both my AP Government and AP Literature classes and tests which is significant because both required a heavy amount of analytical writing; I graduated high school with honors and with the highest cumulative grade point average (GPA), 3.7, at any time of my academic career. One week before I was going to take my SAT for the third time, I mentioned to Darya that I was struggling understanding a large portion of the Math section of the test. To my surprise, she was thoroughly capable skilled in tutoring me in math, along with English. In less than seven days, Darya was able to successfully prepare me for my last SAT test; subsequently, my SAT score improved by more than 100 points. If we had more time to go through the preparation book, I could have further surpassed this amazing progress. Another aspect in which Darya supported me in my college application and preparation process was in guiding me to refine my college essays for both private and public universities: as a result, I was accepted to more than half of the colleges that I applied to. Finally, I am most grateful for Darya and her efforts towards my success because of the high number of scholarships that I received in the second semester of my senior year in high school. Through Darya’s excellent editing and writing abilities, I was able to accumulate more than $200,000 in scholarship rewards from four different organizations. I could never have imagined this much triumph before meeting Darya; without these scholarship awards, I would have been forced to work during my breaks and during school to afford a college education. Now, all that I have to worry about is learning as much as I can while I am at UCSC. On account of my strong achievements in less than a year with Darya, I still utilize the many tips and lessons that she has instilled in me. As a result of this, I excelled in my classes at UCSC with a cumulative GPA of 3.6. Because of my outstanding academic success in the first quarter of college, I was exclusively invited by the university to apply to the College Scholars Program; this two-year program selects 20 students out of about 200 students applying from each college at UCSC to help give them meaningful academic challenges. Not only do I recognize Darya as one of the most significant people in my life because of my solid academic accomplishments, but also due to the genuine passion she holds to be sure that her tutees succeed. As her tutee, she constantly reminded me of my own abilities to encourage my confidence. We are still in contact today which further demonstrates her enthusiasm for her tutees. She is evidently benevolent, motivated, and intelligent, and I highly recommend her tutoring and guidance talents to any student who is fortunate enough to be her tutee.

I'm a speaking and grammar Spanish teacher for beginners. My native language is Spanish, so I have a lot of knowledge about it.

About

I can give lessons of reading, writing, and talking in Spanish, mostly for beginners, but I'm fluent; I can also help other levels because I lived most of my life in Colombia. The price per hour is $17, but I can fix it depending on where it is and on how many hours.

My name is Anna, and I'm from Barcelona (Spain). I moved to California 2 years ago, and since then, I have been conducting Spanish classes for all ages and levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. The lesson includes conversation, grammar, vocabulary, writing, reading and understanding. I always teach to meet your specific learning needs. Classes are available during weekdays. We can have our sessions at your home, local coffee shops, the library, or even outdoors (if the weather is nice). I charge $40/hour for one-on-one classes and $30/hour for student for classes with two or more students. This price is for classes in and around Mountain View. Meeting locations that are farther than a 30-minute drive one way or 10 miles one way for me are charged an extra fee per meeting. If you are interested, send me an e-mail, and I will get back to you. I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks! Anna

About

I was born and raised in a Spanish speaking country. I have lived and studied in the US. In my classes of full immersion, a conversational method is emphasized, as well as grammar explanations, only the necessary followed by the practice of the important points illustrated. I am a well-seasoned instructor with experience in prestigious universities, government agencies, and private academies such as Inlingua, AVL, University of Miami, Barry University, and DLI. I also offer Spanish and ESL private tutoring.

About

I have a service company in Costa Rica and San Francisco, but for more than 6 years, I was a teacher. My students said "Hey, you have a great talent to explain about different topics." That is the reason I want to keep in touch with great people, people to have the goals to be better.

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.
