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

Hello, how are you? My name is Alejandro Ponce de Leon, I'm 26 years old, and I'm from Lima, Peru. My interests lie in history, geography, philosophy, psychology, and literature. I also enjoy swimming, going to the cinema, and reading fiction books. I am a tutor with over two years of experience in teaching Spanish online.

I invite you to take a class with me so that you can embark on this journey of learning Spanish.See Reviews From Students
Hi! Welcome to my online classes.
I`ve been teaching languages for five years now and I`ve recently started teaching Spanish, my mother tongue.
Every class is planned in advance and taking into account the student needs. When the class is finished, I always save a copy of what we`ve gone over, therefore the next class is even better and the material even more accurate and entertaining. I use a wide variety of resources, ranging from the most renowned text books, online exercises, or grammar resources to articles, news, or media in general.
Whether it`s just for leisure or business, I hope I can help you achieve your goals related to this beautiful language.
I think It`s worth mentioning here a little bit of my background because it adds up to the whole experience. I`ve been surrounded by languages, different cultures and literature since I was a child. I`ve studied languages at school but also on my own for a long time. I was born and raised in Argentina but have lived in Spain for two years. I also love travelling. I worked for the tourism industry for several years before becoming a teacher. I love learning and talking about almost anything, so I even know some medical terms just to give an example of how much I love words and communication. Well, enough of me! hehe, I`m looking forward to meeting you and hopefully work together towards your goal!See Reviews From Students
🎓 MSc in Speech Therapy and Cognitive Neuroscience, BA in Spanish Linguistics and Literature, and Diploma in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
📚 Spanish teacher since 2014. Experience with students of all levels- from beginner to advanced.
✏️Tailored curriculum for all students with activities and materials that reflect the actual use of Spanish E.g. audio, ads, texts, and interviews of native speakers.
📝In the grammar classes, the students receive detailed information on grammar issues following a designed curriculum that goes from A1 (beginner) level to C1-C2 (advanced) level. When practicing, we have a conversation and I give feedback using what they´ve learned.
In the conversation lessons, we focus on speaking and listening and I always promote debate and offer necessary corrections. We can cover a range of topics, e.g., current events, culture, science, philosophy, or even a topic proposed by the student beforehand.

I have been teaching Spanish and English for more than ten years. My experience has taught me that basing lessons on conversation helps to improve language level more quickly. Grammar and vocabulary can be dealt with as part of the process rather than in isolation.
After a needs assessment, lessons will be adapted to your specific needs, and on this basis I select the best resources available. Learning a language can be a fun ride and by speaking with a native you will realize that you can communicate in Spanish better than you may think.
Any topic can be adapted for learning lessons, whether you like talking about literature, sports, geography or any hobbies you have. I am learning French myself, which helps me better understand the problems language learners face.

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
Hi! I am Victor. I offer conversational classes. One of the best ways to improve in a language is by talking. The most important thing is to be able to live Spanish as a part of your daily life. Every little detail since you wake up until you go to bed. And always immersed in things you like. So, we can talk about movies, books, history, traveling, food, sports, or any topic that is part of your life.
We can use videos, podcast, articles, music, books, newspapers, phases to start a conversation. We have endless topics. And I can help you with all mistakes you may have. If it is needed we can review grammar accordingly with your common mistakes. But do not forget that make mistakes is one of the best ways to improve. It is important for me that you feel in a safe space.
También podemos tener clases de conversación más casuales. Podemos hablar de un tema y te puedo mostrar algo de gramática de acuerdo a tus errores más comunes. La practica de conversación es lo que más ayuda para que puedas mejorar tu español.
I always adjust to your level.
*For me the best option is zoom.See Reviews From Students

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.
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.
LanguaTalk offers personalized 1-on-1 Spanish classes with top-rated tutors. Here's how to get started:

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.
Our research suggests that the average hourly rate for private Spanish classes for adults in Kalamazoo 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.
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 Kalamazoo, 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 Kalamazoo 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.
