Learning English with Rebecca is fun. She started with doing an assessment of my level and adjusted to it, so we could pick up right there with improving my English. In our teaching lessons, we concentrated on different topics, such as idioms, and had different study books that I used for my homework as well. Thanks to Rebecca, I could expand my vocabulary and grammar. During the conversations with her that are part of her teaching, she kindly corrected mistakes I made what helped me to improve as well. She is a very nice person that creates a good atmosphere, what is an enjoyable experience and helped me in improving my English. In addition to educating the language itself, she also tried to impart additional information for example about the country and region where I live now to better acquaint myself with the environment. I can recommend her as teacher.

Scott was my tutor for French as I want to brush up on my language skills to go again to France in the spring. He was just a superb "coach" in getting me through the complexities of French. I immensely profited from my working with Scott, and as the new year arrives, I am going to meet with him occasionally to "re-charge" my language skills.

Renato is a tremendous asset to anyone attempting to learn Portuguese, whether starting as a complete novice or trying to understand the nuances of Brazilian Portuguese. He has a command, understanding and method that greatly enhance the learning process. He is adept at explaining the subtleties of the language, and he makes each lesson entertaining. Using Skype as a teaching medium also works quite well. Materials can be exchanged in advance for review. During each lesson, Renato provides a running commentary on terms that arise during the lesson, areas for review, and corrections. This is particularly helpful as it provides the student with a reference that is tailored to each lesson. If you have a video connection and setup, then a video Skype session is even better. I would recommend Renato highly to anyone with a genuine interest in furthering their development and understanding in Brazilian Portuguese. He has helped me greatly.

Kalina is a great Brazilian Portuguese teacher! She is patient, fun and encouraging. We go at a pace that is challenging, yet not too uncomfortable for me. She gives me time to grasp the lessons and answers my questions thoroughly. I had a mental block with irregular verbs and she has helped me to overcome it. She also answers my questions about Brazilian culture and customs, which enhances my learning of the language. I HIGHLY recommend Kalina as a language instructor. She is the best!!!

    Laura taught me English for several weeks. I received excellent corrections on pronounciation and grammar. The fun about learning at Laura's has been one-to-one Skype sessions, direct feedback, socially oriented outline of topics, flexible approach. I chose for personal lessons and learning in a group would do the job as well!

    I started working with Theo in February 2015. I found him very engaged and very enthusiastic about the subjects he teaches. He has a very deep understanding of the language arts and always willing to work with you on a curriculum based on the student's needs. I am an adjunct instructor at UW, and I will gladly recommend Theo any day. Don't hesitate to call me for references. Best, Ilanko.

    When I first met Brian, I will admit, I was a bit nervous and wasn't sure how well his teaching methods would work for me. But after my second lesson, I realized how exceptional he is. Brian is engaging, fun as well as patient. Which are key elements for me in learning a new language. He is also good at finding ways to fine tune his lesson to help you progress. Not to mention, his rate per lesson is quite affordable. Having started with no background in Dutch, I am more confident in my ability to speak and will practice during my trip to Belgium. For these reasons and more, I would highly recommend him. Brian thank you for everything and you are awesome!

    I took Spanish lessons with Sarah over the summer, and it was excellent. She helped me set up a plan of what I wanted to learn, when I wanted to learn, and how I wanted to learn. She recommended a mix of Latino music and other Spanish artists, in addition to preparing an assortment of worksheets and packets for me to complete and learn from. When we met (weekly or whenever worked, for whatever amount of time we had decided on the previous week), she would go over the competed worksheets with me, and help me improve upon anything I had missed or wanted to know more about. We met at a public library near her house for a few weeks, but moved to her home for a quieter location for conversational Spanish. She went above and beyond the usual 'worksheets and bookwork', by suggesting music and other things that greatly improved my learning experience, giving me more motivation to learn the language and excel in my studies. She was always prompt and arrived with all of her materials. I am continuing to study Spanish in school and plan on continuing lessons with her possibly next summer, or whenever I feel I need help from an outside source to learn the language to the best of my abilities.

          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.
