Learning a language face-to-face with a teacher can be a fantastic experience. But if you're unable to find an affordable private Spanish teacher in Crystal Lake, you may want to consider learning online. To learn with a Spanish teacher near you in Crystal Lake, you'll have to either travel to the teacher's home, or pay more to cover their travel time; the average cost of receiving private Spanish classes for adults in Crystal Lake is over $20 per hour. Not only does learning online save travel costs, but you gain access to the best teachers from all over the world.
Whilst students sometimes prefer learning in person, the vast majority of students report being pleasantly surprised by the experience of learning with a teacher online. On LanguaTalk, lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your teacher’s full attention and can progress quickly.

¡Hola amigo! My name is Victor and I'm from Mexico.
If you are looking for an experienced, funny and patient teacher, here I am. I've been teaching Spanish to people of different backgrounds and countries for more than 10 years.
Besides my mother tongue, Spanish, I also speak English, German, French, Italian and I am learning Portuguese. I love teaching languages, to learn about cultures and traveling, that's why I'm ready and eager to help you learn Spanish. I will make you travel through my language and the Latin culture.
Teaching on line is something I really enjoy but I have also experience teaching different languages at the University, with all this knowledge and experience I can tailor my teaching to your learning method.
Learn Spanish with me! I'll be happy to meet you and to help you!
See you soon! ¡Hasta pronto!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
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!

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:
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
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
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 :)

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.
What could you expect from my lessons?
° 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.
° Tongue twisters.
° Dictation of words.
° Reading short texts aloud.
So, when do we start? I'm waiting for you!See Reviews From Students
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can make fast progress. Communicating via video call, you’ll be able to talk to your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experiences, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever Spanish tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the classes to your individual needs.
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.
On LanguaTalk, you can find exceptional tutors for 1-on-1 Spanish classes tailored to your goals and learning preferences. Here’s how to try it for yourself:
1 - Find your ideal tutor by browsing videos, reviews, pricing and availability.

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.

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 Crystal Lake 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.
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 Crystal Lake 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.
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.
Whether you live in the city centre or the suburbs of Crystal Lake, 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 Crystal Lake 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 Crystal Lake, face-to-face.
