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.

Gloria has been such a great tutor. She has truly been a blessing! Gloria created lessons based on my needs, tailoring each class around what I wanted out of the class. She's patient, encouraging and pleasant to learn from. We formed a nice bond and I always look forward to our lessons. I began with no Spanish skills and in just a few months I feel like an intermediate. All I have is rave reviews and highly recommend her as a Spanish tutor!!

Gloria is an amazing Spanish teacher! She is very patient and does a great job of explaining the many, many, many questions I have. She comes to class on-time and well-prepared with a lesson that is tailored specifically to me. I could not recommend her more!

Jose Cavalli is the best Spanish instructor I have ever had! Jose did an excellent job of gauging my level of fluency and customizing lessons to my professional field. The Skype sessions are particularly useful for me since I am an extremely busy professional. Jose is always very flexible and works around my schedule. My ability to speak, read and write in Spanish words has greatly improved since I started working with Jose just a couple of months ago. I greatly enjoy the pace of our lessons and I appreciate the fact that he continuously challenges me to learn new tenses and concepts. The files that he utilizes to teach the course are very straightforward and illustrative. I would recommend Jose to anyone who has a desire to master Spanish...from the beginner student to those who are seeking to improve their level of fluency.

I've been taking lessons with Laura for about 8-9 months now -- she's an incredible teacher! I look forward to my lesson each week and my conversational Spanish is noticeably improving. She's also very laidback and caters the class to my needs. Very professional and Jocelyn is super quick to respond for any scheduling matters. I appreciate that they offer discounted packages too so you don't have to pay per class.

I had my first lesson with Raul this week. He assesses how much I knew in Spanish and why I wanted to learn. Then we just got into the basics. He was very thorough, kind, patient, and explained things in an easy to grasp way. For the first time in 34 years I can see my self getting past "Hola Como estas". I'm very excited to continue learning and working with Raul and immediately booked more classes.
