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.

My daughter enjoyed her lesson.

I have had several weekly lessons with Héctor so far and am very impressed. Héctor is very encouraging, tailors his lessons to my needs and balances playing the piano with music theory and rhythm development amazingly well. As an adult learner and a complete beginner with no knowledge of music theory or playing an instrument; I can see a marked improvement from lesson to lesson. Pieces I looked at weeks ago, now make perfect sense. I would highly recommend Héctor and look forward to each lesson.

In just two lessons with Kevin I’ve learned more, and had more fun, than during the entire 4 years of guitar lessons I took in my teens. Kevin’s enthusiasm as teacher and a musician is contagious, and I’m really looking forward to learning from him.

I've been taking lessons with Peter for about 4 months no and have thoroughly enjoyed every single lesson. He's truly a professional - his incredibly thorough knowledge shines through in every lesson, and he always strives to share his experiences and best practices with you so that you learn and grow. As his profile says, everyone learns differently and has different goals, so he does not apply a cookie cutter approach to teaching. He will be honest about your habits and progress and cares about you achieving your goals. He's easy to talk to, interesting, intelligent, and an all-around fantastic teacher. If you want to learn guitar, choose Peter.

My first voice lesson with Lauren has blown my mind in a good way! I truly appreciate her comprehensive approach and great academic background. I learned interesting things about anatomy, physics of sound and solfege. We did some helpful exercises and started to work on a song that I liked. I've studied music before for several years and I can tell that Lauren is great at both explaining theories and giving practical exercises. It's helpful that she has previous experience with international students so she can understand my struggles with certain sounds (I'm from Russia). Overall, the lesson was fun, and it helped me to feel more grounded and better connected with my body for the rest of the day. I'm looking forward to the next lesson.

Julia has exceeded all of my expectations as a piano teacher. Prior to taking lessons from her I had some experience as a child, and she quickly brought me back up to speed. Between sight reading, finger exercises, ear training and theory with each piece I I have grown immensely because of her training. Each lesson Julia is prepared with brief lessons and/or quizzes me on what we went over previously. She quickly learned my style of learning and always helps me get through any difficulties, speed, fingering, key changes.. etc I am having with any piece. She is fun, light hearted, and a joy to be around. Julia is a patient instructor and has been very accommodating to my inconsistent schedule. I would highly recommend Julia to any player of any skill level. Her deep understanding of piano juxtaposed with her energy are qualities she has that enable her to instruct the advancement of any player!

Michael is prompt and great, not only teaching but with individually challenging students based on their learning ability. He quickly sized me up and tailored the lesson to what he though I could handle which motivates me to learn all I can. Well worth the price, which is by the way, pretty darn reasonable!

I'm a 40-something beginner with no musical background. I've always wanted to play guitar. After several months of messing around with youtube videos and canned online lessons, I started working with Mike about 8 weeks ago. I'm really glad I did. He is a great instructor. He is patient and takes an interest in tailoring the learning plan to my interests and goals, he is responsive and sends notes after lessons, and he is very encouraging! As other reviewers have said, he emphasizes timing and practicing with a metronome, and he provides clear direction on how to spend practice time. For me, a busy professional with a family, this has been key. I see improvement in just a short time and am looking forward to continuing to work with Mike.

I've had a few piano lessons with Julia so far and I have nothing but good things to say! As someone who works full-time, I needed a teacher who could accommodate my busy schedule as well as being reasonably priced. Also, being 24 years old while basically starting to learn the piano from scratch, it was important I found a teacher that wouldn't treat me like a child when going through the basics. I was lucky to find all of these qualities in Julia! She does a great job of explaining things clearly, slowing down when something is difficult, and challenging you when you get the hang of things. In addition to being an incredibly accomplished musician, she is also a very friendly individual that is sure to make anyone feel welcome and comfortable. I look forward to our lessons every week and I highly recommend her for anyone in need of a fantastic piano teacher!

I couldn't be happier with having found The Genuine Article (John)! He is insanely talented, knowledgable and professional. Lessons are in a studio with microphone, instruments and amazing sound system. But the best part is that none of this felt intimidating because he is so relaxed, calm and fun to sing around. John is worth it! Wether you are trying to make a career out of singing or just learn to sing better for yourself, having John as your teacher is a must!

I decided to learn how to play piano for the first time at age 24 and Sally has been an excellent first teacher. There are several things that I think she has done well, but I think the most important thing has been that she has helped to foster and inspire my enjoyment of playing piano. Sally obviously loves playing the piano herself and that has definitely passed onto me during our lessons. I started playing piano on a whim several months ago and I'm even more excited now about learning and practicing than I was when I started and I think that speaks a lot to how good Sally has been as a teacher. The other aspect I've really appreciated is that Sally has been very responsive and aware of my goals and has challenged me in exactly the right ways. I feel like I've learned far more than I ever expected to in my first 5 months of playing. There were several times Sally gave me scores to learn that I thought were going to be too challenging for me, when in fact they really pushed me to improve quickly and increased my enjoyment of playing/practicing. Finally, the little things. Sally has been very easy to communicate with and flexible with lessons. We have never had a miscommunication about lesson time/location and she has been very flexible when I haven't been able to do our standard times. Overall, I've really enjoyed my five months learning how to play the piano from Sally and I would 100% recommend her to any other person looking to learn how to play piano for the first time or improve on their existing skills.
