What factors affect how much Spanish tutors charge per hour?

When you look for someone to help you become fluent in Spanish, you'll see there is a huge range in how much Spanish tutors cost. This is based on many factors, including:

  • Qualifications. If the tutor has qualified to prepare students for the DELE exams for example, they're likely to be in higher demand and charge more.
  • Experience. Spanish tutors with more experience are more popular and typically want higher pay to reflect the years they've dedicated to their profession.
  • Location. Tutors living in big cities, or in the US or Northern Europe, will have a higher cost of living than those who live in rural areas or less expensive countries. This may be reflected in their rate per hour.
  • Online or face-to-face. Those who teach online don't need to travel to you, saving them time and money. This allows them to charge a lower rate than those you meet face-to-face.

Of course, learning 1-on-1 with an experienced Spanish tutor is still not the cheapest way to learn. For example, you could start learning via an app instead. But once you know a few words, nothing beats 1-on-1 Spanish lessons with a great teacher.
