Hi there. I'm Andrea. Welcome to this amazing learning journey.
I'm from Ecuador but I'm currently living in the Netherlands. I've been teaching both English and Spanish for 15 years.
Teaching is something I'm really passionate about. I'm totally convinced that learning a new language should be fun and not only focused on grammar structures and boring rules.
You're going to learn Spanish through games, dialogues, role plays, videos and any kind of interactive and communicative activity you can think of.
I hold a teaching degree on English as a Foreign Language and a Master's Degree on English and Applied Linguistics. Although, these degrees are related to English teaching, they have helped me develop teaching methods to teach Spanish effectively and interactively as well.
You will be the center of this learning-teaching process.
Join me in this journey and book a trial lesson with me

I’m a native and qualified Spanish teacher who has been living and teaching in London and other parts around the world for more than 10 years both online and face-to-face.
My experience teaching these subjects varies in ages, from 6 to 87 years old across different nationalities, backgrounds and abilities.
I have a lot of of experience with kids and adults (A1-C2) and GCSE’s, A-levels and DELE preparation, conversation, writing, reading, pronunciation, extra help with homework, etc. I teach individuals and groups.
My classes are always tailored to my students needs and are dynamic, fun and with tons of practice! I use online books, audio and many visual elements.
I’m super laid back, patient and absolutely adore anything related to languages, Arts & Science, the ocean and traveling.
I look forward to seeing you at the trial!
P.S. Please do not reschedule without confirming previously with me days and times. The slots open might have been pre-arranged with another student and therefore not available.See Reviews From Students
Our classes will be dynamics, we'll see videos, slides, listening and speaking.
As a teacher, I use a communicative method, which aims to learn a second language using real life examples to learn to communicate in everyday situations. My classes are fun and effective. With me you will learn grammar, vocabulary and culture and we will focus on the conversation. If you are a beginner, we can put together a plan with the basic topics of Spanish so you can start learning this wonderful language.
I hope to see you soon!See Reviews From Students
Hi everybody! My name is Alba and I have been teaching languages for more than five years now. Born in Gran Canaria in 1995, I decided to study a degree in Modern Languages and Literatures (English-French) some years ago. I have also finished my master's degree in Teaching. Languages, cultures and connecting with people are just some of my genuine passions. I strongly believe that we all should learn while having fun and feeling happy. This class will be a safe-space! That is why I would absolutely love to help you getting started or continuing with this beautiful process of acquiring a second language!!!
Hope to see you soon!
¡Hola a todas/os! Mi nombre es Alba y doy clases de idiomas desde hace más de cinco años. Nací en Gran Canaria en 1995. Hace algunos años, decidí estudiar un grado en Lenguas Modernas y sus Literaturas (inglés-francés). Además, también he terminado un máster en Educación. Las lenguas, las culturas y la gente son solo algunas de mis verdaderas pasiones. Creo firmemente en que todas/os deberíamos poder aprender a la vez que disfrutamos y nos sentimos felices. ¡Esta clase será un espacio seguro! Por eso, me encantaría ayudarte a comenzar o a continuar con el maravilloso proceso de adquirir una segunda lengua!!!
¡Espero verte pronto!

Are you brave enough to learn Spanish using only the target language?🤔 I know it may sound a bit overwhelming at first, but my experience confirms that it is quite an efficient and proven way to acquire a new language.
Don't worry! I will be guiding you from the beginning and giving you the necessary tools to assimilate the new language in a progressive way 📈
My name is Mercedes, I am a certified teacher from Cádiz, a beautiful city in the southwest of Spain and I would love to start accompanying you in your Spanish learning.

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
My lessons are directed to students of all levels looking to develop their own speaking and writing style in Spanish. I believe that the creative drive is one of the most powerful accelerators of learning and in particular, language learning; so my classes involve acting exercises, fun writing prompts, vocal training akin to singers' training, and a variety of further creative work.
We will work on near perfect pronunciation through vocal practice that takes from singing practice, but focuses on diction. You'll become aware of how the muscles of your mouth and face create sound, and how using different resonance points throughout your face will get you to reproduce just the sound you were stuck with. Muscle memory, baby!
Fluency in articulating your own thoughts and essence in Spanish is achievable through writing prompts that do feel important for you. To write about a topic that actually matters to you, I'll provide you with beautiful vocabulary words, and we'll get through grammatical forms that may better encapsulate your ideas and feelings. I will help you make Spanish your own.
If you are wanting to absorb a particular part of Hispanic or Latino culture (e.g. Rosalía's composition, rap music, particular accents, reggeaton's lyrics), we will investigate and go through the elements at interest to get you to the point of creation. If you are a musician or a writer, I can help you use the rhythmic essence of Spanish in your own art. Hit me up!
Within every technique I use, I work with my knowledge of neural connection strengthening and weakening, all facilitated through repetition, reward, understanding and reprogramming of reflexes, investigation of previous outdated strategies, etc. Emotional management is key to success, and we'll work on that in your training just as much as in the linguistic side.

¡Hola! Hi! Bonjour! Ciao! My name is Yessica and I'm from Mexico. I have experience teaching English and Spanish. I love teaching, I love languages and cultures, so this is a great opportunity as I can speak with people from other countries and help them learn my language.
I'm patient and commited. My goal is helping you improve your fluency. I focus a lot on pronunciation and the correct use of vocabulary.
My classes are based mainly on conversation. We will speak about general topics and topics of your interest, sometimes using articles, stories, short videos. I can help with grammar as well but if you have a specific request you should let me know in advance so that I prepare the class acording to it.
Thanks for viewing my profile and I hope to see you soon!See Reviews From Students
I have been teaching Spanish for 2 years now with students from all ages and nationalities😀.
Whether you are just starting or you have been learning Spanish before I can help you develop your Spanish skills so you can communicate with people that speak Spanish from every Spanish speaking country. Do not keep waiting.😁
I like to adapting my study plan depending on the needs of the student.
Did you know that 21 countries in the world have Spanish as an official language and 31 as an unofficial one? That means that if you learn Spanish you will speak the language that 15% of the countries on the world speak.
Don't forget to book a lesson so we can start working on your Spanish skills together. 😊See Reviews From Students
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our research suggests that the average hourly rate for private Spanish classes for adults in Iowa City 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.
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.
Some tutors on LanguaTalk may also provide in-person classes for adults in Iowa City, 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 Iowa City 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.
