If your confidence has been lost when you are speaking English because of your pronunciation, I strongly recommend you meet Bren McElroy. She is a very experienced teacher: In her lessons, she coaches you how use tongue, lips,teeth, and air to pronounce correctly. It is very practical, so I could recognize my progress quickly; in just the first 15 minutes, she identified my pronunciation weak points and effectively guided me through an efficient process to overcome my pronunciation difficulties. Bren is enthusiastic and she encourages me which helps my confidence when speaking English. Every lesson is fun!

Since I've started working with Sybil, I have more time to practice my conversation skill. She addressed the issues right away during our lessons. Moreover, her delivery method is amazing. Noot so rigid, no rush, and always offering any suggestions necessary to improve my language. I do enjoy it.

Samantha is tutoring my daughter in high school honors French. I like that she tailors her lessons to her ability, learning style and current school lessons. She is also warm and engaging. This has made such a comfortable learning environment. Samantha has been the right choice for us, but I can see her working very well with any age person who wants to to learn or brush up on their French.

    To Whom it may Concern, Anna has a very good experience. She was born in Russia and has a very good backing in the Russian language and the English language. In the 1990's she helped me through the translation of my work in Russian. Along the same lines, she helped translate the Russian documents that I retrieved from the KGB archives. I did all of the leg work of visiting the sites, archives, and locations in Russia (over 22 times) in which I visited locations that my relative was sent to in Russia in the 1920's. I had guides and interpreters in Russia to assist me. I have the desire to learn the language (Russian). It is a hard language. Anna has guided me through many lessons. I can read and translate a lot of the work in the lessons. I reviewed many document from the Archives in America, Russia, Finland. I met with additional people in Russia to uncover the story of my relative. I have met Anna's father and mother several times in Moscow. I met many other Russians and as they became familiar with my effort, they noted that I had been to more places in Russia then most Russians. Interesting, I was honored with a "Honorable Professor" certificate from the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences Section of Military History , culture and law for my work in 1999. they noted that I was the only American to receive the honor and only 47 Russians had received. I enjoyed talking with young children. They want to learn English, and I wanted to learn Russian. In one time, I was asked to talk to a class. Questions where directed to me and from me to the class. I did need an interpreter at the time. I could go on forever about my experiences. But, Anna would have me tell stories at the beginning of every class. I she would help me, correct me, and go on. Every class produced many new words. I had trouble remembering everything. But, little by little, I developed my Russian skills. I am still receiving lessons from Anna. I will admit that this is more about me then Anna. But, Anna is an excellent teacher of the Russian language (and French, Spanish, and Hebrew). She has been there In teaching me the language, the culture, and the many things about Russia. Sincerely, Edward M.

    About

    I work as a Regulatory Affairs professional, but I also do tutoring. I am a French native, and French is my primary language. I attended all my classes in French from kindergarten to high school. All subjects were taught by French teachers, and all study materials were in French. In addition to being fluent in speaking and understanding French, I am also very proficient in French grammar, French literature, and writing. As a Regulatory Affairs professional, some of my duties involve translating documents from French to English and vice versa. My tutoring experience started as far back as high school. I was just helping a friend who was failing physics. To my surprise, she learned it so well that she ended up passing the course with a B. I was happy for her and proud of myself. Needless to say, I became a peer tutor when I started college. I obtained a certification for tutoring from Eastern New Mexico University (ENMU) where I majored in Chemistry and Biology. I graduated with honors (3.5/4.0) with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and a Bachelor of Arts in Biology. I also obtained a minor in French Language and Literature (4.0/4.0). 1990-1994 - I worked at ENMU as a Tutor for French, Biology, Chemistry, and Algebra. I was also a French Teacher’s Assistant and French Substitute Teacher. I tutored all level of French courses as well as grading homework and exams. As substitute teacher, I also taught all French courses as needed. 1994-1995 - I was a Night School Teacher at Wayne Community College for returning high school students. I taught science to students ranging from 18 to 50 years of age. 2001-2002 - I worked for StudySmart as a Tutor for the following subjects: SAT/PSAT Prep, Biology, Chemistry and French. I received great reviews from the students and their parents about my tutoring style and approach. My students found my teaching style "fun." I was also told that I was not "rigid" as the other tutors they worked with and that my personality (I am a people person, very lively and full of energy) made them feel comfortable working with me. In 2002, I went back to school and obtained a Master of Science degree from Mass College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences with a 3.7/4.0, and in 2009, I graduated from nursing school. In my spare time, I write French poetry. I plan to publish them in the very near future. I am a dynamic, enthusiastic individual who is also a people person. My years of experience, my teaching style and my personality the fact that French make me suitable to be a Tutor for any organization.

    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.
