My wife and I just had our first Japanese lesson with Keiko - it was an amazing experience! Keiko is considerate, and patient. In addition to her commendable linguistic prowess, Keiko also possesses a great deal of insight regarding Japanese culture! I am looking forward to my future Japanese lessons with Keiko and would heartily recommended her to anyone who is serious about learning Japanese.

Gloria is an excellent teacher. She has a great approach to teaching a language that is patient, considered and is able to adapt the lessons to tailor to myself as a student. She is also particular good at prioritizing what is taught, so you are not slowed down by minutia which takes away the fun of learning a language.

I had felt very nervous just before i started to take English lessons from Raul. I had some anxiety and a negative thought about i will never learn English. After taking my first class, i changed my negative thought. I have been taking English class for 2 months and i feel the differences and improvements on my language skills. Raul is a perfect teacher. He is so professional and informed about how to teach. He makes me more courageous to learn English every day. He is also very patient, kind, friendly and understanding. He shares all his informations, sources and experiences about what you want to learn. Learning with him is a big joy. I feel not only happy but also very lucky to know him and to take class from him.

Laura is an excellent Spanish teacher. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn the language. Her one on one approach makes learning easy and fun! I leave every session feeling like I have a better grasp on the language than I did the day before. She is a patient teacher and makes sure you master a group of words (especially verbs and the conjugations) before moving on. If you want to learn Spanish I would go to her.

Raffaella is a great Italian teacher. She is teaching my teen daughter who is a beginner and me (upper intermediate.) She's friendly and makes Italian enjoyable which is important with teens. I've worked with a lot of Italian instructors and she's definitely one of the best. After just two lessons, we've both learned a tremendous amount.

Ciao! My wife and I had the pleasure of taking beginner Italian lessons with Antonio. While my wife excels at picking up other languages quickly, I am the opposite. No matter. Antonio was accommodating to both our strengths and weaknesses and tailored the lessons so that we both got the most out of our time together. He is very kind and generous teacher. I would not hesitate recommending him to anyone looking to learn Italian. Buona fortuna!

I feel so lucky to have found Katya to tutor me. Katya took ample time to discuss my language goals. It is great that she is working with me one-on-one to tailor the tutoring sessions to meet my needs. Not only is her comprehension of the finer points of English excellent, but she is also able to explain pronunciations clearly. She cares about the progress of her students and she assigns custom-tailored homework. On top of that, she’s also very knowledgeable about the language and about language theory. Highly recommend!

As a native Italian, Antonio has a lot of great information regarding Italian culture and customs as well. If you are looking to learn Italian Antonio is the perfect teacher!

I like my ESL lessons with Marion. She taught me not only the language but also the American culture, which I'm very interested in. Besides that, she is such a nice person that talking with her is always enjoyable.

Zoe is an amazing teacher! Her love of the French language, her sensibility to her students' needs, and her sense of humor all make the lessons fun and enjoyable. She will custom-tailor the lessons depending on what the students require and their level of proficiency. She is a real pleasure to be with and even has devised some very cool games to help with the learning. I warmly recommend her!

The few lessons I had with Humberto were great! He was great at understanding my goals, gauging where I was with my comfort level, and finding an appropriate pace for me. He made the classes enjoyable and helpful all around, adding some music given my own interest in it.

Hiro is an excellent online teacher! The textbook he chose is easy to follow and he is able to adapt perfectly to your pace. Originally from Kyoto, he is very knowledgeable about what words and phrases are outdated and will let you know what Japanese people actually use nowadays. After learning from Hiro from only 6 months, I was able to use basic Japanese quite often on my trip to Tokyo. He was sure to focus on how I pronounced everything and sure enough, everyone understood me! I couldn't be happier with my lessons and will be referring anyone looking for an online Japanese tutor to him. :)

I grew up speaking Italian and always loved being able to switch between languages. When I was ready to learn another language, I decided learning Mandarin would be the best choice given how many people in the world speak it and the current geopolitical climate. I chose AC Tutoring due to their catered lessons and their flexibility. I get to choose the schedule that works best for me and my lessons are slowed down or sped up based on my individual performance. I live in the peninsula and my tutor and I coordinate each week to meet either at a cafe of at a library depending on the content of the lesson. Should I have spikes in work or travel, my tutor and I build this into our lesson plan. After 1 year, I took a trip to China in which I felt very comfortable navigating alone and making every day conversation with locals. Highly recommended for someone looking to learn the language but who needs more flexibility as compared to a structured, weekly class.

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.
