"I prepare my students to succeed as performers and human beings, guiding them to find their true potential, going beyond their self-limitations. I work ONLY with WOMEN, of any age as young as 4/5 years old till adults, no matter what is their previous experience with music. As Alumna of one of the best music school in the world, Berklee College of Music, majored in Songwriting as a Vocalist, I teach my students Berklee's method combined with my personal experience and international background, since I'm originally from Milan, Italy. I prepare students for auditions, (I saw some of them winning music competitions), I teach them breathe management, healthy vocal technique, how to efficiently practice and learn songs, stage presence, performance skills, and anything the students want to work on. I teach also Piano for Beginners, and for the ones who aspire in pursuing a professional career in the music field, I teach contemporary harmony, ear training, songwriting and music business, since I also completed a Master in Music Business at the Catholic University of Milan, and worked at major label EMI Music Italy. I love to see my students growing their skills and witness their joy in singing, and as a teacher, I learn from them too! I love to give my best to all of them, and I love the challenge of knowing that is also my responsibility to grow their motivation and engagement as coach! I never understood the true importance of a mentor, till the moment I became one, and I witnessed the incredible empowerment for students who started to believe in themselves only because a mentor was believing in them first."

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.
