Working with Ms. Stark was absolutely incredible. Her language lessons were the highlight of my summer and she was supportive, kind, and dedicated throughout every lesson I had with her. Her passion for languages and teaching is truly contagious. Ms. Stark is a wonderful friend, teacher, and mentor to me, and I can't recommend her enough.

Maida is teaching me Spanish, and I am very satisfied with her methods. She has recommended a book that I use and she leads me through the lessons and adds to them with explanations of daily usage and pronunciation. It is just a little difficult to understand her English sometimes because of her accent, though.

Frank has been an exceptional tutor for my daughter in 8th grade. This year has been particularly difficult for her and I've recently learned , the majority of the class due to a less than stellar teacher unfortunately and Frank is keeping her on track and ready to move to 9th grade math. For students that struggle witht he subject, he is patient and explains things in their "language" making it easier to learn. I will continue to partner with Frank for my daughter's math education into the summer and I am sure she will meet the 9th grade curriculum with the foundation and confidence required to excel. Thanks Frank!

    Philip puts students at ease. His French is wonderful (great accent) and he teaches with competence and humor- a rare combination. He challenges you as a student and is flexible with his hours. He meets the student at the right level. A very good teacher, a very good experience.

    I’ve been receiving lessons from Luke for 6 months now (and still going!), and would highly recommend him. He’s professional, experienced, and flexible in his teaching style. Although our lessons have been conversationally structured (per my request), I’ve also enjoyed his strong command of Spanish grammar, and have found it really useful in learning Spanish as a beginner.

      Excellent service. Morgan tutored my 9 year old in Spanish. She has great enthusiasm for teaching and is very patient with kids. I can say she is very dependable and trustworthy. I saw a lot of improvement after only a few lessons. Highly recommend her. Great price for such a great teacher!

      I contacted Ryan to help my teenage son whose grades were slipping in French. After just the first session, my son was animated and talkative and excited that he now actually understood a key piece he "didn't get" before then. Ryan is patient and knowledgeable. My son's understanding of the language is improving.

        Ms.Jami started tutoring my children (ages 3 and 4) in Spanish a little less than a year ago. During that time my son's natural interest for reading increased but decreased when working with mommy. Ms. Jami did some preliminary testing to see if he was truly ready and soon she began tutoring him in reading also. Initially, I was concerned that he would not be able to tolerate 30 mins of Spanish then 30 mins reading. However, he is able to maintain in seat behavior with a short break between subjects and the 60 min sessions go by quickly. There is an award system in place to manage behavior and fun interactive hands on activities (singing, music, tactile and visual stimuli) which sustains their attention. As an educator it evident that tasks are age appropriate and consistently tweaked to meet the needs of my children. My children are day and night in terms of personalities and learning styles. I am alway's amazed how Ms. Jami manages both of them in the same session. A sign of a great teacher and a gentle spirit. Ms. Jami presents with weekly lesson plans, carry over activities, affordable rates and she genuinely likes children. I highly recommended her, she is one of my best finds on Craigslist to date! The children love and respect her!

        Krithika is an excellent tutor. She knows all the conventions, rules, expectations, and online resources for topics of high school writing such as critical thinking, literary analysis, research papers, SAT prompts, and college admissions. Like her profile says, she brings passion to the subject. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious, so not only has my son’s writing improved, but so has his interest in the subject. She’s an excellent communicator who can connect with the student as well as mediate with the parent. I am sure her advice and guidance are going benefit my son for the rest of his life.

        About

        During a trip to Disney World as a teenager, I was mesmerized by all of the foreign languages that I heard and strove to master one. My mother purchased me a Spanish program, and off I went. Since then, I have gone on to master four other romance languages, and I love helping others to discover the joys of different languages and cultures. I also love to play guitar. I have been playing since 1991 and have found it to be a gift that never stops giving. I feel that one is never truly alone if he or she is capable of playing an instrument. My love of Spanish and guitar has led me to a very enjoyable career. I taught Spanish for 13 years at a preparatory academy, and I also have taught beginning guitar lessons for seven years at the academy. On the side, I am delighted to give private lessons for both the guitar and Spanish language. (LinkedIn site and resume will be gladly provided upon request.)

        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.
