I offer a laid-back type of teaching, yes, we'll use books, worksheets, exercises for homework (should you request them), etc. But the main goal will always be turning the lesson into a comfortable space where you can practice and learn that making mistakes is part of the natural process of learning. Most of my students are at a beginner level, but I also have experience teaching more advanced levels. I focus on grammar, structure and pronunciation, always looking to steer students towards sounding more natural.
I'm from south-east Spain, my accent is quite clear and easy to understand. Book a trial and give me a try. See you soon.
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.

Hi! my name is Dolores, Lola for short. I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm a 24 year old, Biochemistry student so I'm a native speaker in Spanish who specializes in biological, chemical and medicinal Spanish.
My lessons are very flexible and will mold around your personal needs and preferences. Conversation lessons are all about talking, giving my student necessary corrections and explaining the grammar behind it so they can stop making the same mistake. I know it can be an intimidating language but I believe in taking the fear away when learning Spanish.

I am Alberto, a highly-skilled and dedicated Spanish teacher from Spain. I specialize in teaching Spanish both to children and adults, using interactive and fun methods to make learning a language enjoyable and engaging for everyone. As a native speaker of both Spanish and Italian, I bring a unique perspective to my lessons. I have traveled extensively and have a wealth of experience in different roles, including manufacturing, restaurants, and even as an electrician. I later set up a travel agency and hostel which greatly enriched my cultural knowledge.
I've been praised by my students for my effective and engaging teaching approach. I believe that conversation is key to truly mastering a language, so I've designed my lessons to be interactive and student-centered, where you will be actively participating and speaking instead of just passively listening. I've been successful in helping students of all ages and levels achieve fluency in Spanish.
I will assess your level, goals and needs in the first lesson, and create a tailored curriculum that best suits you. I've been told by my students that they've seen progress in their learning and they've been able to understand the context of conversations for the most part now. I make the classes fun and relevant by having conversations about our day to day lives. We start our lessons with conversations in Spanish (for all levels) and then towards the middle of the class move on to reviewing the homework and practicing conversations around those specific sections of the textbook. I am patient, encouraging and make learning fun!
Don't wait, book a trial lesson with me today, and let's get started on your journey to fluency in Spanish. I am looking forward to helping you achieve your goals!See Reviews From Students
Hello! I am Monica and I am a certified Spanish teacher with more than 7 years experience teaching Spanish to people from all over the world.
I have many hours of teaching experience, as from 2016 to 2019 I worked in a Spanish academy in my home city, Medellín, where I worked 40 hours per week teaching Spanish as a foreign language; I had 1-to-1 sessions and also groups of up to 6 students; the classes were amazing and I loved the experience since I could meet people from a range of cultures, thanks to that I realized that there are extraordinary people from every corner of the world.
Since 2019 I have been working as an online Spanish teacher and now I am living in the UK, studying a master's degree and dedicating free time to my favourite hobbies: Cooking, salsa dancing and swimming.
My lessons are planned to be enjoyable and comfortable. I use the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and I love getting to know my students well as it allows me to tailor each lesson to their personality and way of learning; every lesson you have with me will be carefully prepared for you, I hope to meet you soon!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. I have experience being a teacher of students with attention deficit, so I have learned how to make my classes interesting. In addition, I believe that each person has a personal method to learn a language, so my classes focus on your needs and adapt to your goals and personality.

I like to offer my students personalized classes so they can achieve their goals. To make the classes entertaining I like to use movies, videos, social media content, books or anything that can interest the student.
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.

Lessons are taught one-on-one to ensure that you receive customized instruction. During the lessons, 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 lessons 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 lessons is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a tutor, simply check their calendar to ensure that they have times that fit your schedule. Some tutors may have limited availability due to high demand.
If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, tutors 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 tutor is a good fit for you and get a sense of what online learning is like. The tutor will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so that they can tailor any lessons 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 tutor is right for you, you can book a trial with another tutor for 30 percent of their full lesson price.
Most students take 55-minute lessons. However, some tutors also offer the option of 30-minute lessons. 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 lessons are recommended for most students. 30-minute lessons 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 lessons 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 lessons 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 lessons. 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.

If you prefer in-person lessons over online learning, LanguaTalk may not be the best fit for you. Instead, you can search for a tutor 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 tutors at a lower cost.
Our research suggests that the average hourly rate for private Spanish lessons in Alton is between $25-$35. Since online tutors 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 tutor.
Once you start a video call with your selected tutor, you'll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor 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 lessons in Alton, but most only offer online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. Additionally, most tutors are not located in Alton 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.
