In-person language lessons with a teacher can be a great experience, but if you're unable to find an affordable private Spanish teacher in Altadena, online learning may be a good option for you.

Many students who try online language lessons with a teacher are pleasantly surprised by the experience.

Hello there! My name is Luciana, I am a language tutor with 2 years of experience (both in-person and online classes).
**Please, if you can, select Google Meet as our class platform**
I consider myself to be a very patience, disciplined, kind and creative person.
I am passionate about history, pastries, literature, linguistics, animals ( 100% dog lover! 🐕) and, of course, languages. So if you are interested in any of those topics we’ll make a good match :]
And if you don’t, that’s ok! I find very nourishing learning about topics outside my comfort zone.
I speak Spanish since i am a native speaker from Peru, with a neutral accent. I do speak English fluently, German and a bit of Japanese also.
I use a methodology based on research and methods proven by psychologists and teachers. My classes are ALWAYS prepared and structured to meet your needs. The methodologies i use are:
1️⃣ TPRS (Teaching Proficiency Through Reading and Storytelling) and comprehensible input -> For learning grammar and vocabulary in a engaging, stress-free way!
2️⃣ Breaking down your favorite songs, stories and articles -> To practice reading, vocab and pronunciation!
3️⃣ Direct method (speaking only in Spanish for intermediate or advanced students) -> To strengthen your speaking and listening abilities
ALSO, i always explain grammar step by step and provide flashcards to remember vocabulary (based on the science proved method “Spaced repetition”).
I provide each of my students a personalized plan and homework based on their goals, needs and way of learning.
✨ Teaching Philosophy
I do believe that the ability we have for learning is truly a gift, as i said in the video “The ability to learn is a seed that, with love and discipline, can grow into a beautiful flower or a juicy fruit”. As a tutor, my goal is to give you the best education possible so you can see progress and value the time and effort you are putting into the language.
I’d love to see you in my class soon!See Reviews From Students
I cover all levels and have experience in conversational classes. Every class is adapted to the student's level and will tailored to your needs.
Practical, conversational Spanish includes lots of activities, like word games, guess the word, creating stories using different tenses...
But if you prefer, we can also have dictations, make grammar exercises or choose online resources or magazine articles to talk about.
And, about me... I was born and raised in Spain (Burgos), and still living here. I love languages and always try to help as much as I can.
Book a trial so we can discuss your needs, I can answer your questions, and we can practice some Spanish!See Reviews From Students
My name is Ignacio, I am Argentinean, and I live in Buenos Aires. I am a lawyer and a Spanish teacher.
I enjoy music, cinema, art, and literature.
My passion is teaching Spanish. I teach in many high schools in Buenos Aires, and I am studying to be a professor at the University of Buenos Aires. I give a lot of dedication to my work and I show it every day in my classes.
It is important to adapt to the needs of each student. You can choose whether you prefer to improve (speaking skills, fluency, writting, accent, or learn grammar)
I use tools like coursebooks, movies, flashcards, and various different documents.
My wish is to see you motivated and eager to continue learning!

NOTE: If you'd like to book a class with me but my availability doesn't work for you, please let me know. I'll try my best to adjust my schedule to yours.
I have been teaching for about 10 years and learning languages for even longer, so I know what it's like to learn a new language. And exactly because of that, I'm a very patient and understanding teacher :)
Regarding our classes, everything will depend on your needs. However, I would like to tell you about two types of classes I offer that my students like a lot:
The first one is a class where you can ask me any question you want about Spanish. It can be about vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, or even about our way of thinking. ;)
The second type of class is one in which I use my own teaching method, with which you can practice your writing, speaking, and listening comprehension skills, and also improve your pronunciation and grammar during every session.
Does it sound good to you? Would you like to know more about it and give it a try? Just book a class with me, and I will see you soon! :DSee Reviews From Students
¡Hola,soy Marlene! 😃I live in Puebla City, one of the main cities in Mexico. I studied architecture and music. As a Spanish tutor, I have taught over three years to people from all over the world.
Have you ever had or overheard a conversation where you couldn't understand anything because it's not what you've learned in books? Don't worry, in our classes we will learn how we really speak in everyday situations 😉.
I consider myself a very patient and dynamic person, so the classes with you will be personalized according to your needs and interests. I will help you with grammar, pronunciation, Mexican slang, or just have a very pleasant conversation. Conversation is the most important activity when learning a language; that's why from the very first class, we will be speaking Spanish.
I will very happy to meet you!😀See Reviews From Students
Hello, my name is Miguel, I'm from Colombia, and I'm a native Spanish speaker certified in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. My specialty is Spanish for beginners, and my classes are usually focused on conversational Spanish, but I can also help you with other things related to the use of the language and its grammar, or follow a textbook if you are already using one.
You don't need any previous knowledge of Spanish to take lessons with me.
These are some of the topics I can help you with:
Graduated in Hispanic Philology and Masters in Applied French, I have always kept up with my teaching training and have also completed a CELTA course for English teachers. This further training has provided me with the familiarity to different teaching methodologies, which have proven to be extremely useful in my classes.
I have worked as a Spanish teacher for 13 years, both in-person and online. My job duties typically include designing and delivering Spanish courses for all levels. Also a 13 year-experienced translator. I have recently worked on a project which involved developping Spanish lessons and units to be delivered online, so I am used to creating content of my own.
My teaching method is mostly conversational and based on a combination of skills. I use plenty of audiovisuals and various activities to get students to speak. My constant interest in professional training has allowed me to become familiar with techniques and tools that are essential in today´s second language learning.
My lessons are all similarly structured: a grammar point, a few exercises to get started, then controlled practice, and finally an audio or a video related to the topic.See Reviews From Students
Hola! My name is María and I'm from Mexico.
I have 3 years of teaching experience. I majored in Languages from Universidad de las Américas Puebla and I obtained a certification to teach Spanish as a foreign language. My classes use a blended methodology that incorporates grammar and communication activities in a laid-back and dynamic way. I have hand picked or created all the materials according to the needs of my students and I often use resources like audios, videos and games to make the lesson more interactive. My main goal is to help my students feel confortable expressing themselves and learn at their own pace.
I have studied several languages including French, German, English and Italian. My favorite part of language teaching is getting to know the cultures and interests of my students. I'd be happy to work on a plan that fits your needs. You don't need any previous experience learning Spanish or a foreign language. If you're ready to start learning book a trial class with me or message me with any questions.
Hope to see you soon!See Reviews From Students
Hello everyone! I do not teach A1 A2 levels. I am Itziar and I am a Spanish teacher. I am currently living in Spain but I lived in different countries in the past. I am a native speaker with a neutral Spanish accent. My pronunciation is clear and easy to understand. I love teaching Spanish to international students and I am happy to see them making progress learning the language. I have three years of experience teaching Spanish to students from all over the world.
My teaching style:
Patient: I personally experienced the struggles of learning a new language. I learnt different languages from the scratch, so I will encourage you during the lesson.
Hands-on class: My lessons are practical. I will help you to boost your confidence in learning Spanish through practical exercises.
Competent: I am committed to helping you succeed in learning Spanish.
Functional: I will focus on the skills and knowledge you need to ensure you achieve your goals and needs.
Tailored lessons: I adapt to the needs and goals of individual students and I personalized your lessons based on the topics you want to learn.
My goal is to make the learning experience engaging and fun but also straight to the point. My biggest interest is that you can learn something new everyday and you improve your Spanish. Do not worry about making mistakes, they are a part of the learning process and I am a patient teacher :)

Lessons are taught one-on-one to ensure that you receive customized instruction. During the classes, your tutor will use a variety of teaching methods and resources, including language exercises, conversation practice, and cultural notes, to help you reach your learning objectives.
All classes take place via video call. Your tutor will normally give you a choice of calling tools, all of which are easy to use.
LanguaTalk offers personalized 1-on-1 Spanish classes with top-rated tutors. Here's how to get started:
1 - Find a tutor that meets your needs by reviewing their videos, reviews, pricing, and availability.
2 - Book a trial lesson. Many tutors offer a free 30-minute trial, while others offer a discounted trial price.
3 - Have personalized classes with your chosen tutor via video call. Or try a different tutor if desired.
You don't need to provide credit card information to book a free trial session. Please only book a trial if you're seriously considering taking classes. Tutor prices vary, and you can use the filter to find one that fits your budget. You can pay for individual lessons or purchase a package for a discount (view a tutor's pricing options on their profile).
We're confident you'll enjoy learning on LanguaTalk. Our platform is trusted by students worldwide because of our transparency. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display these ratings on tutor profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. This is because we only accept the top 10% of tutor applications, unlike other platforms.
To access our full list of FAQs or get assistance from our friendly team, click the '?' in the corner of the screen. You can also watch students sharing their experiences learning on LanguaTalk below.
If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, teachers offer these for free. If a tutor does not offer a free trial, the trial price will be 30 percent of their full lesson price, allowing you to still try a session at a reduced cost.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to determine if the teacher is a good fit for you and get a sense of what online learning is like. The teacher will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so that they can tailor any classes you choose to take. You'll be encouraged to speak as much as possible in Spanish, but you can also speak in English if needed.
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the teacher is right for you, you can book a trial with another teacher for 30 percent of their full lesson price.
Most students take 55-minute classes. However, some tutors also offer the option of 30-minute classes. If this option is available, it will be noted on the tutor's profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).
In general, 55-minute classes are recommended for most students. 30-minute classes may be suitable if you're taking lessons for your child or if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
One of the benefits of online classes is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a teacher, simply check their calendar to ensure that they have times that fit your schedule. Some teachers may have limited availability due to high demand.
Some tutors on LanguaTalk may also provide in-person classes for adults in Altadena, but most only offer online classes for adults as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. Additionally, most tutors are not located in Altadena because they are living elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a tutor, you should assume that the lesson will be conducted online.
If you prefer in-person classes for adults over online learning, LanguaTalk may not be the best fit for you. Instead, you can search for a teacher on a local service listing website or place an advertisement in your area. However, we do encourage you to try online learning – you have nothing to lose by booking a free trial session. Many students find that the online experience is just as good as in-person learning, with the added benefit of access to higher quality teachers at a lower cost.
Some students might be unsure about learning Spanish online because they think it will be very different from in-person learning. However, many students find that the online experience is similar and they often develop strong relationships with their teacher.
Once you start a video call with your selected teacher, you'll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The teacher may also share learning resources with you (such as newspaper articles or YouTube videos) and you'll be able to collaborate in real-time using tools like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
Our research suggests that the average hourly rate for private Spanish classes for adults in Altadena is between $25-$35. Since online teachers don't have to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, their hourly rate tends to be significantly lower.
