If you're unable to find an affordable private Spanish teacher in Portland for in-person language lessons, online learning may be a good alternative. To take lessons with a Spanish teacher in your area, you may have to pay more to cover their travel costs or travel to their home, and the average cost of private Spanish classes for adults in Portland is over $20 per hour. With online learning, you can save on travel expenses and have access to top teachers from around the world.
Many students who try online language lessons with a teacher are pleasantly surprised by the experience. At LanguaTalk, lessons are 1-on-1 to ensure you get your teacher's full attention and can make rapid progress. Lessons are conducted via video call, allowing you to communicate with your teacher and share learning materials, as if you were in the same room. Try a free trial session and see for yourself!
On LanguaTalk, you can watch Spanish teacher intro videos, check their availability, and read reviews from their students on their profiles. You'll also see which learning needs, ages, and levels the teacher is comfortable with.
If you're new to LanguaTalk, you'll receive a token for a complimentary 30-minute trial lesson when you create an account. Use this to evaluate your chosen teacher and decide whether you want to keep taking classes with them or look for a Spanish teacher in Portland instead. (Please note: not all teachers offer a free trial lesson - some charge 30% of their standard full lesson price.)
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!

My name is Melina and I am from Peru. I studied foreign languages at the National University of Cajamarca in the north of Peru and I got a degree in Education – Foreign languages. I speak Spanish (native) and English (B2) very well.
I will help you to learn Spanish for you to achieve your specific goals taking into account your needs, your level and your learning process. Our lessons will include videos, everyday Spanish conversations, slides and more. We will also have cultural activities such as gastronomy, music and tourism. The four skills to learn a foreign language will be included as well: reading, writing, listening and speaking, and you will also have the grammar so that you can understand the language and produce it.
I have worked with people from different ages and levels and I have helped some of them to pass international exams. Over the last 20 years I have taught English and Spanish and I always try to do my best for my students to enjoy the lessons, have fun and above all to learn.
I like meeting people and sharing my experience with them so I hope you can be one of them. If you book a trial lesson with me you will not regret it.
See you soon,

ME AS A TEACHER AND TEACHING STYLE
I consider myself to be an easy person to talk to, patient and fun. I have experience teaching different kinds of students from kids to adults in both online and classroom setting (more than 1300 lessons online + 3 years of classroom setting experience). I have been implementing a combination of the Flipped classroom and communicative approach into the lessons and so far, I have seen great improvement in my students' ability to communicate.
TYPES OF LESSONS AND MATERIALS:
Flipped classroom programme: It'll especially boost your Speaking skills in an organised, structured and visual way. Materials will be sent every weekend (video lessons, PDFS, flashcards, grammar games...) and all skills will be covered. In class, we’ll try to practice what you learnt through speaking activities.
Flex lessons: They can be a mix of structure lesson (the one above) and flexible lessons. You can also choose practicing your Spanish through my interactive magazine (B1-B2) which includes: articles, videos, expressions ... In class we can do debates and discussions around these topics.
Conversation programme: Based on the books “Conversar en español I & II”. We’ll do lot of controlled speaking practice. The course also includes access to the Power Points , audio files and notes from the lesson.

¡Hola! 😄 I'm the cheerful Mexican teacher you've been looking for to learn Spanish!
My name is Karim and I hold a degree in Foreign Languages and a certificate as a Language Teacher from the University of Cambridge. I've been teaching Spanish since 2014 and learning languages for 10 years now. So I know what it feels like to struggle with a foreign language both as a student and as a teacher.
Generally, I'm a dynamic, joyful, and patient teacher, so there's no problem if you're a beginner and '¡Hola, amigo!' is the only phrase you tell your Hispanic friend; or if you're intermediate and you'd like to improve your level to travel or study abroad. You'll be taught by using the best teaching methods and approaches to become fluent enough to be able to speak with more than 450 million people around the globe. 🌎
Your lessons will be fully customized according to your own needs. In general, we will have conversations based on your goals and interests so that you actively learn and practice vocabulary and structure. You won't be taught too many grammar rules unless you require this.
So, what are you waiting for? Hit the "book trial" button and prepare yourself for a thrilling journey!
I very much look forward to speaking with you in a trial lesson! 😉

My name is Esther and I live in Changwon, a beautiful city in the south of South Korea. I came to Asia to work in the 3D graphic design industry but end up falling in love with teaching languages and culture. To become a good teacher and help my students I got a Spanish Philology undergraduate degree, a master’s degree in ELE (teaching Spanish as a second language) and became a certified DELE examiner. I have experience teaching students from many countries and priorities, in academies and online.
As a Spanish teacher, I am very patient and give you time to express by yourself. I don’t only focus on the correction of the grammar or pronunciation, but also give a lot of importance to the ability to communicate ideas and navigate through specific cultural situations.
In our first lesson I will speak with you and will figure out your learning plan based on your learning characteristics, priorities, and tastes.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.
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
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.

He enseñado más de 2,000 clases en el último año y me encanta ayudar a otras personas aprender mi idioma
Como profesora, uso un método comunicativo, el cual tiene como objetivo aprender un segundo idioma usando ejemplos de la vida real para aprender a comunicarnos en situaciones cotidianas. En este método usamos la gramática como una herramienta más, que muchas veces podremos aprender a través de situaciones comunicativas reales por medio del contexto, la observación y el sentido común.
Si eres un principiante, podemos armar un plan con los temas básicos del español para que comiences a aprender este maravilloso idioma.

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