I have been taking Spanish lessons with Cristobal for coming up on a year and French lessons for the past 6 months or so. While I am sure that there are plenty of choices for tutoring this may be the only teacher I have had that I can honestly say has far superior methodology versus all my other professors. I don't say this lightly either, I say this coming from years of experience with other teachers in various settings. Just to give a little background, I studied Spanish for 3 years in high school, then studied in Mexico at a vocational school in a completely immersed environment (living with a host family of non-English speakers) far from the reaches of most gringos in a small city called Cuernavaca. I have worked with native Spanish speakers that speak very little English for 10+ years, studied Spanish in college for 4 semesters, and even studied with Professor William Slavin for two years in weekly private sessions, a local scholar who spoke English, Spanish, French, ,Italian, Portuguese, and Hebrew. While Slavin's approach was very thorough, Cristobal's approach is practical, more natural, and aimed at speaking. Ole! Spanish School isn't just another business in the sea, it's a place with an authentic philosophy and a natural approach to language learning. To make the experience even better, his rates are super reasonable and he has a very easy going personality that creates a relaxed environment. His positive ratings exist for a reason.

My experience with Kascha as my 5 year old daughter’s teacher is one I will cherish forever. She is not only teaching her how to learn Spanish in entertaining ways that were approachable, but he also embedded a deep love for the culture that will stay with the both of us forever. And for that, I am forever grateful. She’s excellent & I can’t wait until my 2.5 year old will sit down with her because she is definitely going to be with Kasha!

Erika is an excellent Spanish tutor. She teaches through reading, watching videos, and speaking. Her lessons have a historical and cultural component, in addition to conversational Spanish and colloquialisms. Our hour lessons fly by, and sometimes we lose track of time and keep chatting after the lesson is over. She is always engaged, interested and passionate about the material, and able to answer any questions. I never feel uncomfortable or nervous when speaking to Erika in Spanish. I highly recommend Erika for Spanish tutoring!

I´ve only been working with Cristobal for a short time due to my work schedule, but I´m very comfortable now with speaking and reading Spanish. I really like his approach to teaching the language and his passion for it. He also has group meet ups so that you can enjoy speaking with others on your proficiency level and continue gaining confidence in your speaking ability.

About

In your normal language classes in school, you learn grammar through listening to your teacher talk. You never are given much opportunity to talk. In my classes, you will learn any grammar subject through you speaking and conversation. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, we will have a conversation. Whatever it is you need or want to learn, you will learn it as YOU speak, even if you are a true beginner. I guarantee it. I focus on the common errors of Spanish while using Speaking, Journals, Worksheets, Listening Activities, Videos and Reading activities to couple for success.

AN EXCELLENT TUTOR (!) in every aspect- very professional, responsible, and most importantly, very dedicated to her work. Marianne has been teaching both my kids (11 & 16) as their private tutor and they LOVE her classes. They think that her teaching style is very creative and effective - she uses PowerPoints, internet sources, music videos, rhymes, and games to maximize memorization. She keeps each class interesting and fun, but at the same time pays attention to details, focuses on solid grammar knowledge and proper pronunciation. Her classes are also always personalized to the needs of each of my kids. I also highly value that she does not abruptly end the class, just because the time is up; she continues to complete the concept she started on. As a parent I couldn't be happier with her work and good communication with me. She makes sure that I am well informed about the learning process - she emails me reports after each session along with practice material for my kids. She is not only an excellent tutor, but also a great person with a very pleasant personality. I would highly recommend her to everyone who wants to succeed in learning Spanish.

      We found Ms Pérez through a friend, as our kids wanted to advance their Spanish level. During the first lesson she arrived promptly and was curtious toward the whole family. My children can not stop thanking me for hiring her, as they have improved radically. I also believe that Ms Pérez is originally from Europe and can teach to a high standard of English. Highly recommended.

      I'm so happy to have the opportunity to give Elianne praise for her work. She helped our daughter gain confidence in Spanish, as well as understand and excel in her classwork. Elianne made Anna comfortable and her style of teaching truly helped her become a better learner. Thank you Elianne! We hope to work with you in the Fall! :)

      I am a native language Spanish tutor. My technique consists of teaching Spanish with a situational and conversational method. This method helps students to have better retention and learn more vocabulary faster. I also teach math using practical examples that will create interest in learning. This approach is especially convenient for teenagers who need a motivation to learn math.

      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.
