Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is CPR training?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (better known as CPR) is a lifesaving manual technique that pumps oxygenated blood back into the body’s organs if someone’s heart or breathing has stopped. A variety of CPR training is available to community members, employees and healthcare providers. CPR training may last two to five hours or more, depending on the content and the target audience. During the training, students will learn how to recognize and respond to an emergency situation. There are different CPR techniques for adults and children, but with both you will learn how to determine whether the person is conscious before administering chest compression. During the training you’ll learn chest compression techniques for adults and different techniques for children between the ages of 1 and 8. Students learn how to properly administer chest compressions, when the technique is appropriate and when it is not, and how long you must perform rescue measures. Students also learn what an automatic external defibrillator (AED) is and how to use it if necessary to shock a patient before administering CPR chest compressions.

How much are singing lessons?

Singing lessons cost $50 per hour, on average. Hourly rates can range anywhere from $40-$80. However, some vocal instructors may charge flat rates or offer packages. They may also offer 30-minute lessons for a lower price. Or, they might require monthly tuition for ongoing classes. It depends on the voice coach. 

Contact vocal instructors near you to get a sense of how much singing lessons cost in your area.

How do I become CPR and first aid certified?

You can earn CPR training and receive first aid certification in a number of ways. Choose an online course to learn the materials remotely and then find a testing location to complete the certification process with an in-person demonstration of your knowledge and skills. Encourage your workplace to host a first aid and CPR training so employees can learn what to do in case of a workplace emergency and how to respond with lifesaving techniques. You may also be able to take a CPR or first aid class in your community. A basic CPR training may run four to five hours. After receiving CPR training, you’ll know how to respond if an adult or a child goes into cardiac arrest or stops breathing. You’ll learn how to use chest compressions to keep blood pumping to a person’s organs, which can keep them alive until an emergency responder can arrive. First aid and CPR training can also include education about how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

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.

What is first aid training?

With first aid training, you may be able to help save a life. First aid training can teach people who are not medical professionals how to help a sick or injured person in crisis before an ambulance arrives on the scene. Most commonly, first aid training helps teach you how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

First aid training can teach you how to respond in a variety of emergency situations, including:

  • Asthma attack
  • Anaphylaxis
  • Burns
  • Choking
  • Diabetic emergencies
  • External bleeding
  • Heart attack
  • Poisoning
  • Neck, head or back injury
  • Stroke
  • Seizure

First aid training classes may be offered by professionals who are affiliated with the Red Cross, which offers online, in-person, and blended training classes. First aid classes are also often offered through local recreation centers, city services, schools, hospitals and private companies.  

What do you learn in a first aid course?

First aid training gives you a variety of lifesaving skills for responding to many different emergency situations. In a first aid course you’ll learn about how to examine someone who’s been hurt, how to use a defibrillator, how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and how to control bleeding and trauma. Some courses include pediatric first aid as well as adult first aid; helping a choking infant, for example, is different from helping a choking adult. Although you can take CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) courses separately, most first aid training includes both.

In a first aid course you’ll also learn how to respond to:

  • Wounds, including punctures, cuts and hemorrhages
  • Heart attacks, chest pain and respiratory arrest
  • Bone fractures, sprains and torn muscles
  • First-, second- and third-degree burns
  • Poisoning
  • Choking
  • Bites and stings
  • Hypothermia or frostbite
  • Shock and seizures


What can you do with a first aid certificate?

People with a first aid certificate are trained to respond quickly and appropriately in life-threatening situations. Although a first aid certificate alone isn’t enough to secure a job, it can make you more attractive to certain types of potential employers. When you have a first aid certificate, you’ve proved that you know how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), use an automated external defibrillator (AED), and handle emergency situations like choking, heavy bleeding, a heart attack or stroke, or anaphylaxis. Most parents prefer babysitters and lifeguards with first aid certification. Many professionals, especially those who work with children, are required to have first aid training, including teachers, coaches, counselors and therapists, firefighters, and social workers. In addition to adult and pediatric first aid plus CPR and AED courses, you can take first aid training specifically designed for babysitting and child care, for health care settings, and for swimming and water safety situations..

How do you get your first aid certificate?

To get your first aid certificate, you must take a first aid training course designed for certification. Certified training professionals offer courses to employers, schools or other groups. For an in-person training, you may go to a training location such as a Red Cross classroom, or a professional first aid and CPR trainer can come to you or your office. Most first aid training courses take three to five hours or more, which prepares you to take the first aid certification test. To boost your chances, you can take online practice tests or review study guides. Once you pass the first aid exam, an official digital certificate is emailed to you. You can also have a wallet card or printed certificate sent to you.

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.

How long is your CPR certification good for?

In general, CPR training sessions and certifications are good for two years. After that, you must recertify to ensure you are up to date on the latest information and techniques. CPR is a lifesaving skill for a community member, employee or healthcare provider to know, as it enables you to respond appropriately if someone goes into cardiac arrest or stops breathing. In a CPR training, students learn compression techniques to keep blood flowing to the body’s organs if a person’s heart has suddenly stopped or they have stopped breathing. This action can keep a person alive until an emergency responder can arrive on the scene and can effectively save a life.

The American Red Cross explains that re-certification is important, because people start to forget information just a few months after taking a training. The American Red Cross recommends you keep your skills fresh by reviewing free, online materials or downloading their free, mobile app to keep abreast of CPR information and news. Re-certification courses are shorter than first-time CPR training. Your renewed CPR certification will be good for another two years.

As an older student, I had reservations about taking guitar lessons online. I had concerns about my dexterity, as well as concerns about experiencing technical issues.

Ms. Thomas is a wonderful teacher who is quite knowledgeable of the operatic repertoire. Already after a few lessons I am learning how to release jaw and tongue tension, and to better connect my breath to the body. I highly recommend her for introductory students as well as those pursuing an operatic career.

Met Austin yesterday for my first vocal lesson with him. We had a lot of fun with him teaching me vocal warm ups and educating me on the physiology of singing. I just purchased a 10 session packet as a gift to myself for my birthday, so i can learn how to sing just for fun... He was wonderful and I look forward to learning more from him.

Two and a half years of training with Patrick and I could sign like I never thought possible. I have performed His methods of teaching are very effective; his charisma is incredible. He makes it a priority that YOU become better. He builds your confidence, motivates you to practice and perform in public. Some are teachers and some are mentors. Patrick has been both to me. I would encourage anybody who wants to improve their singing voice, improve their onstage presense, or learn to sign to come and take lessons at Performance Career Center. I do not regret a minute of time I have spent with Patrick and Annette and other teachers.

I am very pleased to have David as my piano teacher. I commute 1.5 hours to my lessons with him and the long commute is worth every minute to be able to get his expert review and teaching on my piano skills. I’ve been working with David for about 6 weeks and I’ve already been able to work my through playing most of the first page of the Final Fantasy 7 Main Theme. Most instructors would not have bothered to give a complete beginner the time and patience to work through this piece. I’m really glad David has taken me up on the experience, with patience and thoughtful feedback, to learn music I’m interested in. David has taught me the elements of good form, techniques to learn new music more efficiently, and given me the opportunity to perform in studio classes and recitals. Working with David results in a well rounded experience.

David is real professional. When you have your first lesson, david will discuss your playing, your long term and shor term goals, and what you expected from all lessons moving forward. David's advice and methodologies are VERY effective. Like many other reviews say. I can see how his other beginner students are playing hard piano pieces. His methodologies are based on scientific findings and is based on science. It's not just a random thing he made up without any backing to it. You are encourage to play your favorite song at the hardest level even if you are a beginner at piano and using his methodologies, you will be impressive how far you will accomplish. That's if YOU pratice at least 2-3 hours a day using his methodologies. But, David is understanding if you can't practice that long because not everyone has the open availability to practice that long each day. Each week he will ask you if you practiced and if you say you didn't have the time to do so, you can hear in his voice and attitude that he really cares that you practice. He does not brush it off like "Ok whatever". His mannerisms, passion, piano skills, methodologies, and and his professionalism set him apart from the rest. If you are a beginner and it is your first instrument, I want you to contact David right away and even if you are experienced piano player you will benefit as well. I have only been playing for about 3-4 months and already completed more than 10 short term piano pieces and 1 and a half pages of demons by image dragons at the advanced level and 5 pages(full song, easy version) of perfect by ed sheeran(I wish I would have picked the intermediate version if perfect, since I now know his methodologies are very effective) . If you were to look the demons piano music sheet that I have you would know that a beginner should not be playing this song and is incapable to learning such a piece because of the difficulty of the song and me being a beginner. Or you would assume that I have been playing for years HaHa! Using David's methodologies with demons, I was able to play the first page in a couple of weeks. I still need to learn on balancing and shaping to be more musically when playing piano. David is the man you go to to start or advanced your piano playing.
