Zahra's teaching style is singular: focused, fun and memorable. The sum of Zahra's lessons was massively comprehensive: phonetics, grammar, extensive vocabulary and basic conversation topics. After each lesson, Zahra provides notes, handouts and homework that help the student review the current lesson and learn the next lesson. Zahra is passionate about teaching and celebrates her students' progress. She understands her students' learning styles and customizes each lesson to help the students reach their end-goals. Zahra strives to make herself available for students to provide flexibility for busy schedules. In short, Zahra is an excellent teacher and without a doubt makes learning a new language fun and engaging.

Ben Schwabb/physics & engineering tutor is a real professional: knowledgable, concise, thorough, and presents a well-planned lesson each time. He helped my high schooler pull up his physics grade dramatically and pre-taught an electrical engineering course to my college-age son to get a jumpstart on his fall class. Alex/director is extremely responsive, provides quality tutors quickly, and stays in contact to ensure client satisfaction. Every company should operate this way.

Ms. Belle has tutored my twins since September 2016. She is great with them and they love working with her. I have seen significant improvements in my kids' written ability in terms of clarity, volume, flow, and style. They are in the 5th Grade AAP Level IV program in FCPS and are now comfortable constructing multiple paragraphs to express their ideas or tell a story. My daughter is especially confident and excited in her writing since working with Ms. Belle. My son's ability to write about his passion for sports has soared. The effort is reflected in the last two report cards and in the grades that they receive on their language arts projects. I highly recommend Ms. Belle as a language arts tutor and we will continue to engage her services.

Andree obviously has a lot of experience working with young kids and seemed to enjoy the challenge of engaging my interested but shy little gal. I was impressed that she used such a great mix of approaches with song, action and puppets to get my little one focused and having fun. We are looking forward to our next lesson!

Since March 2018 I have been taking one-on-one weekly lessons with Shaoling Liu. During that time, I have gained much more confidence in my ability to pronounce tones, which is critical to being understood. She also places a premium on listening to conversations at the speed of “regular Chinese-language speakers” speaking. She is very enthusiastic about teaching Chinese, and is always willing to do more for the students who take the initiative. For example, if you want to write materials, she will correct them; if you record your own speaking she will listen to it; and in these cases she will give you feedback between classes. She has grown up using simplified Chinese, but she knows the traditional characters, which is essential for what I want to learn. One of her previous students is now working in Taiwan. I recommend her to individuals interested in learning to speak and understand Chinese.

Michelle was extremely knowledgeable and had an immediate rapport with my daughter. The short term goal was to improve her grades in reading and language arts. Besides learning the material, my daughter became more open to the idea of using a tutor, and realized the benefit of doing so. You can really tell that Michelle loves kids and has a blast working with them, and that makes all the difference!

    Right from the very start, Fredy tailored and pinpointed the knowledge I had and designed a plan that was precise to my language needs. His teaching abilities are incredible. I have tried online classes and tapes and every other option for learning Spanish. Nothing worked. After finding him, he was able to find my weak points and emphasize my strong ones. A new language can be disheartening for people that struggle. Fredy has a way of bringing out the drive and 'want' for learning. He tries different approaches, and is successful and efficient about finding the way that works best you. His knowledge and teaching extends farther than just the language itself with vast knowledge of the many different Hispanic cultures as well. I would highly recommend Fredy for anyone trying to learn Spanish!

    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.
