Individual Lessons

Spanish tutors charge a variety of prices based on their locations, years of experience, reviews, years abroad or being a native speaker, and education. The price given will also depend on the age and skill level of the student.

Skill Level Lessons

When searching for a tutor who can meet you at your current level of fluency and raise it up to a higher level, the best way to find one is to meet a few in person and ask the right questions. For example;

  • How much experience do you have working with other students with my skill level?
  • How many years have you been tutoring Spanish for?
  • What’s your teaching style?
  • How will you adapt your lessons to match my learning pace?
  • How have you helped students with my learning challenges improve?

It can also be beneficial to get lessons from a native Spanish speaker like Private Spanish Lessons in Miami, FL, so you can learn the proper inflections as you speak.

The cost of these lessons will often be lower because of the teacher’s lack of travel costs. For example, Tutors.com's online tutoring service, will charge $10 less per hour than they would for a standard in-person session. Plus, they can connect you with an expert tutor almost instantly.
