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.

Jo F.
I've only done one lesson, so I can't really report based on progress, but my first impression is definitely positive. Anne is pleasant and helpful and the lesson was fun and challenging. She's grown up in Latin America so her command of Spanish is excellent. I liked her style of teaching and I'm excited about learning Spanish!

Anne is an attentive and knowledgeable teacher! She provides quality instruction and challenges my learning of Spanish every lesson! I have already progressed further with her in 3 lessons than with any other instruction method. I highly recommend Anne!!

I have gained more confidence in speaking Spanish throughout my lessons with Anne. She provides a large variety of work including worksheets, reviewing vocabulary, and one-to-one conversations. Her lessons are given in a comfortable setting, as she gives supportive feedback and makes sure you learn from your mistakes.

I love working with Anne. She is patient and clear but very structured and rigorous. My hour and 1/2 lesson flies by and I feel very supported on my path to learning Spanish. Can't recommend her highly enough!

I bought my husband Spanish lessons for his birthday since he expressed an interest in learning the language after some recent vacations to Spanish-speaking countries. I chose Anne because of her excellent reviews on Thumbtack and I have been more than impressed with her expertise and effective tutoring sessions. He has made a ton of progress after only 4 classes. He looks forward to his one-on-one with Anne each week and has enjoyed all of the work thus far. I'm looking forward to our next vacation where we can BOTH talk to the locals in their language! Whether you've never spoken a word of Spanish or would just like to brush up on your Spanish-speaking skills, I'd highly recommend becoming a student of Anne's.

Anne has an impressive amount of experience in the Spanish speaking world. Her insights into the cultural aspects of Latin and South American countries enhance the lessons. I have enjoyed my time learning with Anne and am immensely more confident in my speaking and reading comprehension after a few short months.

Anne has been wonderful teaching Spanish to my children (ages 8 and 6). They both eagerly look forward to lessons (we do one hour twice a week), and enjoy reviewing what they have learned outside of lessons and through light "homework" assignments. Anne is able to keep time with the kids engaging and fun! Sometimes I think they forget they are actually LEARNING! Besides being punctual, Anne always communicates clearly regarding upcoming changes and, of course, expectations. We look forward to becoming ever more fluent in Espanol!

I'm currently taking lessons with Anne, and I couldn't be more satisfied. Only 2 sessions in, I was already several chapters into our book and speaking/listening/reading with confidence. One thing Anne does very well as a teacher is match the pace of the student. She will speed up or slow down depending on your progress, and while I've been challenged by our lessons, I haven't felt overwhelmed. Anne takes her job and your learning seriously, but she is very polite and accommodating as well. So, if you are serious about learning Spanish, and you'd like to enjoy the process, don't hesitate to get started with Anne.
