I took an intermediate Spanish course with Tara and I liked her from the minute I met her! The class was total immersion with only Spanish spoken, which was very helpful. I can't even remember how many times I went off on tangents during the class, but Tara was very patient and would always creatively turn it into a teaching moment. The class always had a basic structure but Tara was very flexible with the content. I could tell she spent a lot of time on her presentations and materials (we learned words related to clothing/shopping by dressing up Obama paper dolls; we translated a Bon Jovi song written from the viewpoint of a guy lamenting the loss of his love and then we had to write a response back from the fictional woman's standpoint) and she is definitely the most creative teacher I've had so far. For our final project, we got to pick a topic of our choice and present it in any format we wanted (pictures, slideshow, article, comic book). I did a presentation on a recent trip I took and afterward, we corrected any grammatical mistakes and talked about how the sentences could have been worded differently. If I had taken this class with anyone else, it definitely wouldn't have been as enjoyable. Tara is very friendly, approachable, and engaging. As far as Spanish teachers go, she's as good as it gets.

My roommate and I contacted Julia to teach us basic Russian for our travels to Ukraine and Moldova this summer. To date, Julia has provided us with proper instruction, lesson plans, and homework. She has become our mentor and very reliable resource as we prepare for our journey. Julia is very professional and can present her material on all levels, which I can attest to since she teaches the two of us at the same time. She is a kind and genuine person who is always upbeat. It is with great privilege to recommend Julia’s services to anyone who is looking to explore or further their understanding of the Russian language.

I started learning Spanish with Mrs. Patricia 3 weeks ago. My Spanish improved dramatically over the past 3 weeks although my starting base was almost zero Spanish. Patricia is very honest, dedicated and wrk with passion. She even taught me the correct accent and I learn the Spanish grammar with her in less than a week !! She's a great teacher and I highly recommend her. She's not only my tutor but now became a friend of th family too ! We love Mrs. Patricia !!

Patricia, has been tutoring me for the past month. I am a true beginner!!! This is my first time every studying spanish or trying to learn a new language. Patricia and I meet at a local coffee shop once a week. Patricia is very punctual, always prepared and super patient. She is very thorough and has a very calm delivery in respect to the lesson. Her cool and calm demeanor helps prevent me from getting frustrated during my tutoring sessions. She also gives timely positive reinforcement which i find is key in a classroom type of environment. She will utilize different teaching approaches when necessary to help me grasp the information. I really enjoy my sessions with Partricia and I look forward to continuing them. I highly recommend Patricia. To all you new spanish speakers I say "Buena Suerte!!"

      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.
