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
Hi! My name is Vanessa, I am from Peru and I currently live in Washington State, in the US. Besides being fluent in Spanish and English, I speak Portuguese (C1) and French(B1).
I have been teaching online since 2018. Being a language learner myself, I know what the most common challenges are when learning a language and the most successful ways to overcome them.
In my opinion, the easiest and most memorable way of learning is having fun during the process. That is why I aim to provide you with a supportive, engaging and thought-provoking environment in which your oral production will take the lead role. Having said that, I am very flexible, and I will adjust my methods according to your specific needs and requirements. On every session, corrections made will be provided on a customized Google doc, so that you can always refer to it whenever you want to study and keep track of our lessons.
It will be my pleasure to help you to build up your confidence and fluency in Spanish. See you soon!See Reviews From Students

My name is Franco Del Gesso, I am Argentinian and passionate about psychology along with education since I think it is the fundamental tool for progress, that is why I love teaching and conducting research to find how to help the development of education from psychology, I am a very sociable and dynamic person, in constant movement.
I consider myself a cheerful teacher who has the ability to adapt to the needs of each student. I am very sociable and I have the ability to start conversations very easily. I like having more than one method to teach this language either through speech, writing, images, videos and even music. Me considero un profesor alegre que tiene la capacidad de adaptarse a las necesidades de cada alumno.
Soy muy sociable y tengo la capacidad de entablar conversaciones muy fácilmente. Me gusta tener más de un método para enseñar este idioma ya sea mediante el habla, la escritura, las imágenes, los videos y hasta la música.
At first I consider it important to hear what the apprentice is looking for and based on that, choose how the next lesson are going to take place. However I tend to make my lessons dynamic, interspersing conversations and various exercises including grammar, music and even books. I have a blackboard available to use if necessary and also headphones with a microphone to improve the audio quality.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.

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!

Hi, I'm Federico and I want to guide you on the exciting journey of learning a new language.
Together we will agree where you want to go and how we will achieve it.
As each person learns in a different way, we will take advantage of your strengths and work in your weaknesses. The tutoring is designed to improve your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. It will depend on your needs and priorities.
In the lessons we will use whatever resources are necessary to achieve our goals. We will use material of interest to you, such as websites, newspapers, songs, podcasts and videos, etc.
I prefer to speak in Spanish from the beginning (ELE Certified). But if necessary, we will use English (120 hours TESOL Certified). I have lived in Africa and on the border with Brazil for a few years, so Portuguese is another option.
Traveling is a beautiful way to discover life. So enjoy the trip!See Reviews From Students

The beauty of taking lessons online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a tutor, just check their calendar to make sure that they have available times that fit your schedule. Some tutors have limited availability as they already have a lot of students.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute lessons. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute lessons. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute lessons if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
New to LanguaTalk? We'll give you a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, tutors 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 tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in Spanish as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too!
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the tutor is quite right for you, you can book a trial with another tutor for just 30 percent of their full lesson price.
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 lessons to your individual needs.
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 tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen tutor, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor 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 Altoona, 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 lessons with Spanish tutors in Altoona if you're keen for a social experience. Or, you could take 1-on-1 lessons with a private tutor. This isn't the cheapest way to learn a language but it's possibly the most effective, assuming you have a good tutor. Learning online rather than face-to-face may make private tutors a more affordable option. Check the tutor profiles above to see how much it's likely to cost. Prices vary a lot depending on the tutor, but will usually be cheaper than learning with a Spanish tutor in Altoona, face-to-face.
Tutors on LanguaTalk sometimes provide lessons locally, but most only provide online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, most tutors are not teaching Spanish in Altoona 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.
Our research suggests that the average cost for private Spanish lessons in Altoona is somewhere between $25-$35 per hour. As online tutors 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.
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 tutor 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 tutors at a lower cost.
