Laura is very proficient with coaching English as a second language. She will teach you the skills to interact with people (e.g.: in your line of business when you are in their country) who speak other languages. The skills include learning to be comfortable with the second language, and not just with the words themselves.

Re-learning a language involves hearing it spoken. I need to hear it from a person face to face, so that I can improve my ability to understand meaning, context and intent, and respond verbally. Rodrigo conducts these sessions in Spanish, and he anchors them in to real life in several ways. By talking about usage, by discussing the language and its use in different countries, or its use in various contexts, like business meetings, and by using readings of current engaging articles and focusing on verbs and tenses. No improvements to recommend to date.

Hi! I am Irina V. Nikitina, Associate Professor at the School of Interpreting and Translation of the State Linguistics University of Nizhny Novgorod, Russia. Extensively working in the field of translation and interpreting, I have engaged Marina Sokolova in many translation projects as a freelance translator and editor in both Russian and English. Marina has excellent qualifications required for the job. With MA in Second Language Studies (USA) and English Language Pedagogy (UK), as well as such well-established certificates as CELTA (Cambridge English Language Teacher for Adults), Current Trends in Theory and Practice of Language Teaching, she makes a truly valuable contribution to a solid team of translators that I closely cooperate with. In every project Marina has been part of or has lead, she has demonstrated a set of qualities that are truly valuable for a professional: authentic and idiomatic language, broad outlooks, inquisitiveness, accuracy, commitment to deadlines, meticulousness, flexibility and responsiveness. Marina has deep knowledge and wide experience in the following areas: business correspondence, general documentation, academic, fiction. Her translations are always proofread and never require double check. I frequently address Marina to get her expert opinion on various linguistic matters both in Russian and English and find her approach to the job of translation and editing truly passionate.

I got to know of Chhavi Porwal through a friend, who had been very happy with her experience with her. I hired Chhavi to teach English as a second language to a cousin. Since she is bilingual certified, she was able to relate very well to the student, and within just 6 weeks of tutoring, his English fluency, grammar and pronunciation improved remarkably as did his confidence. Chhavi is a very dependable, experienced ESL tutor. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn/ improve their English.

Our daughter has been taking piano lessons from Dennis for about 10 years now. She started lessons at the Zion Conservatory and now enjoys lessons from our home. Dennis was very accommodating when we had to relocate to Racine County. Through the instruction provided by Dennis, she has developed a solid foundation of music theory, technical skills and a passion for music. We would recommend Dennis to anyone interested seeking a piano instructor.

I have known Ted Anderson for a number of years and have enjoyed chatting with him in Spanish. As a college professor of Spanish I appreciate Ted's great knowledge of the Spanish language and the cultures of the Spanish speaking world. From our chats about language teaching I can tell he has many wonderful ideas for helping people of all ages learn and enjoy the language.

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.

    Bren has been taking lessons from Ms. Susy for about 5 years now. We couldn’t be happier. She is very creative and challenges her students. Bren has been recognized at several independent competitions for his piano skills, including a I+ at his middle school solo/ensemble contest last year. I+ is the highest score available.

      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.

      Strategic Tutoring

      I highly recommend Strategic Tutoring by Mrs. Mack. Financially I am struggling to make ends me but wanted to help my children succeed in school. Since my good friend also had children that needed extra help, Mrs. combined the kids into 2 small groups which gave them the support the needed and kept the hourly fee down. Instead if paying $45 an hour my girlfriend and I spent $28 an hour which was manageable. Mrs. Mack tutored my 9th grade son and my friend's 10th grade daughter together at the Geneva library. She selected reading, writing, and science topics materials that were intetesting to the kids and also pertinent to what they were studying at school. She took the time to talk to the teachers and even was involved in a conference at the school. The kids were very eager to see Mrs. Mack each week so we actually increased the time to 90 minutes a week and I am happy to say after a few sessions the classroom teachers noticed significant improvement in their reading fluency and comprehension even in biology and modern world social studies and this was reflected in their grades and attitude. My younger son in 3rd grade was tutored with my friend's 2nd grade daughter. Mrs. Mack took time journal writing back and forth with both of them secretly working on writing skills which did help to improve their essay and creative writing skills. Her positive attitude and friendly demeanor created a spark in the kids and after about a month they made significant progress in decoding words more automatically, understanding what was being read, increased rate of math computation, and improved writing structure and creativity. The kids actually understand and know how to apply various strategies that Mrs. Mack taught. She spent time with me explaining these strategies and providing me with a "strategy cheat sheet" so that we all ( teachers, parents, tutor) used a common language when guiding or reminding the kids how to solve a problem with reading, writing, or math. Mrs. Mack went beyond what I ever expected in a tutor and her experience with ESL, Special Education, Behavior Disordered, and Gifted students was apparent wben she took initiative to set up some enrichment activites for my 5th grader on her own time!

        I love seeing people excited about learning. Kids especially show this excitement when they see growth in their ability and come to the table with something new they discovered about themselves as musicians.

        About

        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.
