Soy muy sociable y tengo la capacidad de entablar conversaciones muy fácilmente. Me gusta tener más de un método para enseñar este idioma ya sea mediante el habla, la escritura, las imágenes, los videos y hasta la música.
At first I consider it important to hear what the apprentice is looking for and based on that, choose how the next lesson are going to take place. However I tend to make my lessons dynamic, interspersing conversations and various exercises including grammar, music and even books. I have a blackboard available to use if necessary and also headphones with a microphone to improve the audio quality.See Reviews From Students
Hi, I'm Maribel, I was born in Ecuador, so I'm a native Spanish speaker with a Latin American accent. I am an actress and screenwriter. As an actress, I have clear pronunciation and voice projection, and I can help you achieve the same. As a writer, I know how to express myself using language correctly.

Hi, I'm Federico and I want to guide you on the exciting journey of learning a new language.
Together we will agree where you want to go and how we will achieve it.
As each person learns in a different way, we will take advantage of your strengths and work in your weaknesses. The tutoring is designed to improve your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. It will depend on your needs and priorities.
In the lessons we will use whatever resources are necessary to achieve our goals. We will use material of interest to you, such as websites, newspapers, songs, podcasts and videos, etc.
I prefer to speak in Spanish from the beginning (ELE Certified). But if necessary, we will use English (120 hours TESOL Certified). I have lived in Africa and on the border with Brazil for a few years, so Portuguese is another option.
Traveling is a beautiful way to discover life. So enjoy the trip!See Reviews From Students
Hi, my name is Dulce.
I am a Spanish tutor with more than 5 years of experience in adult learning. I have taught Spanish in private settings and currently working as a Spanish instructor.
I have been through the challenging experience of learning a foreign language, so I know that learning a language takes time and a lot of practice.
Over the past years, I have had the privilege of helping many students speak Spanish fluently. For business/career, travel/ tourism, and many other purposes. So I’m confident I can help you too!
To make the learning process easier and more engaging, I bring my lessons to your points of interest, passions, and hobbies, so the lesson is all about you.
There is nothing to fear. I use demonstrations (gestures, images, audio, and videos) to support comprehension and understanding. To consolidate the learning, I provide a friendly and safe environment that strengthens your learning process. We will use the TPRS method (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling) throughout the process. Role play, simulations, and fun activities among other resources will help you practice Spanish in real-life situations.
If this resonates with you, book your lesson, and let's start building your Spanish. See you very soon!See Reviews From Students
Born, raised and based in Mexico City.
I've got more than 5 years of experience in language schools and online. I'm passionate about learning languages and culture through them.
I have studies in Hispanic literature and linguistics at UNAM. So, we can talk about many topics related to Latin America literature and culture or I can offer lessons with a linguistic approach: phonetics, grammar, lexicon, etc.
Thanks to this amazing profession as a Spanish teacher, I've had the chance of meeting students from different countries and backgrounds.
I'd love to help you improve your Spanish and teach you through culture, music and games.

° Conversation and pronunciation lessons.
° Grammar and reading.
° Spanish for travelling.
° Spanish for bussines.
° Get to know about culture and music from Mexico and Latin American countries.
° Didactic material included (worksheet, books, videos, games, pictures).
Our vocal apparatus is one more muscle that we have to exercise for better results. In our pronunciation lessons we are going to make each part of your mouth working out. This way, you will sound more natural when speaking not only Spanish but other languages you intend to learn in the future. There's no matter if you are interested in a particular accent, I can help you anyways!
These are some items you can expect in your lessons:
° Shadowing practice.
° Articulatory phonetics exercises.

° Dictation of words.
° Reading short texts aloud.
So, when do we start? I'm waiting for you!See Reviews From Students

I offer conversation practice and structured courses, from absolute beginner to C1, grammar drills and homework if you wish. Wide experience with adults and senior students. I will provide you with notes and examples from our lessons, during the lesson in Google Docs, or after the lesson, via e-mail. You don't need to decide in advance if you prefer Latin American Spanish or European Spanish, I can teach you the main differences and help you decide.
In our first lesson or trial we will figure out how your learning plan will be, depending on your individual needs, learning style and goals. If it's your first online lesson, there's no need to stress, I'm very understanding and patient.
Oh and to tell you a little about me...I love animals, languages, reading and traveling.See Reviews From Students

My name is Carlos, I am 38 years old and I live in Malaga, in the south of Spain. I am a Spanish teacher for foreigners, I love meeting people from different cultures and teach them my native language as well as Spanish culture. I consider myself a positive, cheerful and sociable person.
I am currently an online Spanish teacher, working with students from all over the world. I have been working as an online teacher for 4 years, but before coming into this new world of online teaching I worked for 8 years for different Spanish schools for foreigners in the city where I live, Malaga.
As a Spanish teacher, I’d say that I am a very dynamic and attentive teacher, I give special importance to communication, without leaving aside grammar. I think grammar is important as long as providing a communicative approach . Likewise I adapt to all the needs, levels and goals of the student. Every day I look for useful material and tools for my Spanish lessons, therefore I can help the student with very suitable material which I have been saving and using all this time with students for their proper learning . Within this material there are images, videos, grammar exercises, vocabulary, communicative activities ... etc.See Reviews From Students

I am in love with languages, I started studying English and French when I was 14 years old. my learning experience was mainly with private teachers in my hometown.
I lived one year in Germany where I teached Spanish to many friends.
I invite you to learn Spanish, you will be surprised how easy it can be.

The beauty of taking classes online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a teacher, just check their calendar to make sure that they have available times that fit your schedule. Some teachers have limited availability as they already have a lot of students.
New to LanguaTalk? We'll give you a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, teachers offer these for free. If they do not, the price will be just 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at minimal cost.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the teacher is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The teacher will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any classes you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in Spanish as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too!
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the teacher is quite right for you, you can book a trial with another teacher for just 30 percent of their full lesson price.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute classes. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute classes. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute classes are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute classes if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
Our research suggests that the average cost for private Spanish classes for adults in Castro Valley is somewhere between $25-$35 per hour. As online teachers do not need to travel to you and they often live in countries with a lower cost of living, the hourly cost tends to be significantly lower.
If you're really not keen on learning with a teacher via video call, LanguaTalk isn't going to be the right choice for you. You can instead search for a teacher on a local service listing website, or put up an advert in your local area. We do encourage you to give it a try learning online though - you've got nothing to lose as you can book a free trial session. Most people find the experience is as good as learning face-to-face, but with the benefit of having access to better teachers at a lower cost.
Sometimes students tell us that they're not sure about learning Spanish online because they think it’ll be completely different to learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a solid relationship with their teacher.
Once you start a video call with your chosen teacher, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The teacher will typically also share learning resources with you (newspaper articles, YouTube, etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time using a tool like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
Tutors on LanguaTalk sometimes provide classes for adults locally, but most only provide online classes for adults as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, most tutors are not teaching Spanish in Castro Valley because they're living elsewhere in the world. If you decide to book with a tutor, you should assume that they can only teach you online.
Whether you live in the city centre or the suburbs of Castro Valley, there are many options for learning Spanish. You could use an app or a software program if you're looking to pick up basic vocabulary and learn some grammar rules. Alternatively, you could attend group classes for adults with Spanish teachers in Castro Valley if you're keen for a social experience. Or, you could take 1-on-1 classes for adults with a private teacher. This isn't the cheapest way to learn a language but it's possibly the most effective, assuming you have a good teacher. Learning online rather than face-to-face may make private teachers a more affordable option. Check the teacher profiles above to see how much it's likely to cost. Prices vary a lot depending on the teacher, but will usually be cheaper than learning with a Spanish teacher in Castro Valley, face-to-face.
