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!

Chris comes on time and is a very effective French instructor. Her teaching and guidance helps children learn the new language effectively. She makes sure she completes the material and is not time bound to finish in 1 hour and almost always stays longer. Her focus on the child learning the language properly. She is very good and I would recommend her any day.

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!

I have been taking lessons from Lillian for a few weeks now. I absolutely love her teaching style. Each 1-hour class is intense and afterwards I feel like I have gotten to the next level. But more importantly it spurs me on to want to learn more. She is patient and kind, but quick to see where you are making a mistake and drilling you on that area so you rapidly start doing it right and forget your wayward ways. For anyone who is interested in learning Mandarin I highly recommend Lillian as a tutor!

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.

Scott has been helping me with the language for almost a year now. I'm a native Russian speaker and make a lot of "classic" Russian pronunciation mistakes. Scott does a great job at helping me to eliminate them. Scott is also a professional RU-EN translator, and this comes in surprisingly handy in our lessons. Often, if there's a Russian idiom I'd like to use in English, Scott comes up with a nice translation for me. Finally, since cultures in Russia and US differ and I moved only a few years ago, it's not always obvious to me why certain things are the way they are here. Scott lived in a Russian-speaking country for quite some time and he really understands both mentalities. His first-hand experience is really valuable for someone like me, and Scott is always happy to answer questions.

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.

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.

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.

Ian came over to my house once a week for two hours to tutor me in Japanese. He would teach me grammatical concepts, vocabulary, and about the Japanese culture. The lessons were very fun, and each session was packed with a lot of information. I really recomend his tutoring for those who want to learn Japanese. After only a few sessions in the summer, I was able to pass a Japanese placement test at my university very easily. Ian taught me in a few sessions what an entire semester would cover (at much less of a cost than a university course).

Francesca is extremely patient and very good with kids. She engaged my very hyper active son and has been a huge part of getting him ready for first grade reading and comprehension. She was always on time, always upbeat and he enjoyed his summer lessons a great deal. I highly recommend her.

I took many semesters of German at College of San Mateo with Dr. Raney and she was by far one of the best German professors I've ever had the privilege of knowing. She is patient, brilliant, and very creative in the way in which she teaches a foreign language. She encouraged me and gave up much of her own time to support my desire to improve my language skills. Her dedication and knowledge of German (and I assume in other languages too) is amazing.

I have only met with the tutor once, but I like the services he provided thus far. Very professional, punctual, organized and on point. No time was wasted in idle chat and he was very attentive to my daughter's needs. I am planning to recommend him to a couple of my daughter's school mates.

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 daughter is a high school senior and is taking Spanish 2. She currently has a D in the class and she needs to pass in order to meet school requirements and to get into college. She's struggling with very basic concepts and vocabulary. She has a lot of anxiety about school and tends to give up easily, so I'm looking for a tutor with a lot of patience and compassion. It would also be helpful if the tutor could provide help with basic study skills and test anxiety.
