Learning a language face-to-face with a tutor can be a fantastic experience. But if you're unable to find an affordable private Spanish tutor in Ames, you may want to consider learning online. To learn with a Spanish tutor near you in Ames, you'll have to either travel to the tutor's home, or pay more to cover their travel time; the average cost of receiving private Spanish lessons in Ames is over $20 per hour. Not only does learning online save travel costs, but you gain access to the best tutors from all over the world.
Whilst students sometimes prefer learning in person, the vast majority of students report being pleasantly surprised by the experience of learning with a tutor online.

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!

Hello everyone! My name is Dionisio. I have been teaching Spanish since 2008 with students from all over the world. I also have experience teaching my language and culture in other countries such as the United States.
My classes are dynamic and communicative so that from the first moment you can find a space of confidence to express yourself in Spanish. After knowing your interests and your level of Spanish, I adapt my classes to your learning needs. Generally, I like to organize the session around a grammar point, or a vocabulary topic that helps us to structure the class, and helps you to memorize its content. I like to include different resources in my classes such as conversation on different topics, internet articles, grammar worksheets, audios, videos and kahoots that will help you develop your skills to learn Spanish in a real context. I love teaching and learning languages, and in addition to English and Spanish, I speak French and Catalan.
A little bit more about me: although I was born and raised in Zaragoza (Spain), I developed my professional career in Barcelona. Currently, I live on a small island in the Mediterranean Sea. In addition to teaching Spanish, I am passionate about theater and writing, activities to which I also dedicate myself professionally as a stage director, playwright and teacher.See Reviews From Students

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.

Do you want to speak Spanish with confidence and fluency? I can help you achieve your goal!
Hello! I am Blanca, a Mexican teacher with a Diploma in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language. I also have a Master's Degree in Psychology and have published a couple of books.
I love reading, traveling, and discovering new cultures. I have lived abroad and I know what it's like to be in your shoes when it comes to learning a new language because I'm a language learner myself.
I became a Spanish teacher because I found a passion for teaching and helping people improve their language skills. I've taught Spanish to businessmen, engineers, university students, psychologists, school counselors, retirees, and travelers.
I can help you improve your Spanish for working in a specific field, but we can also have interesting conversations and debates about literature, current events, cultures, history, politics, movies, gastronomy, sports, and travel.
My lessons are tailored to each student, depending on their interests and goals. We can watch videos and tv-series, read books and interesting articles, write emails, and discuss different topics (including traditions and culture of Spanish-speaking countries). I provide students with lesson notes, practice exercises, and examples.
My goal as a teacher is to make sure you can express your thoughts and can communicate spontaneously in Spanish, that's why since the first lesson with me, you’ll find yourself speaking Spanish.
Book a lesson with me! I'd love to help you take your Spanish to the next level!See Reviews From Students
Hola, hello, 안녕하세요, Thank you for visiting my profile!
My name is Nazaret, I’m from Venezuela and I currently live in Argentina. I developed an interest in languages at a very young age and now I love sharing my knowledge with others. I love doing lots of things, such as painting, watching movies and anime, editing videos, listening to music, and digital art, playing games, and programming. I read a lot in my free time(especially adventure and fantasy stories) and of course, I'm passionate about languages, at the moment I'm learning Korean.
As a tutor, I strive to create a supportive and engaging learning environment that meets the unique needs of each student. Some students are visual learners, while others are auditory learners. I believe in creating a friendly and supportive learning environment where students feel comfortable asking questions and making mistakes. I also believe in setting clear goals and expectations for each session to ensure that students feel a sense of progress and accomplishment.
My classes are interactive and depending on your needs we could practice grammar, writing, reading, or speaking and you can choose any topic that you are interested in! I use a range of teaching materials and resources, including:
📌Reading short sentences, news, or popular song lyrics
📌Watching a scene from a movie or short video.
📌Doing written practices.
📌Exercises to perfect your accent pronunciation.
📌Monthly progress checks.
Looking forward to meeting you！See Reviews From Students
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.
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.
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.
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.
On LanguaTalk, you can find exceptional tutors for 1-on-1 Spanish lessons tailored to your goals and learning preferences. Here’s how to try it for yourself:
1 - Find your ideal tutor by browsing videos, reviews, pricing and availability.
2 - Book a trial. Many tutors offer a 30-minute trial for free; others charge a discounted price.
3 - Take personalised lessons with your new tutor via video call. Or try someone else.
No card is required to book a free trial session. Please only book if you're considering taking lessons. Pricing varies by tutor and you can use the filter to find someone who fits your budget. You can pay one lesson at a time, or buy in bulk for a discount (open a tutor's profile to see their pricing options).
We’re confident you’ll love learning via LanguaTalk. We're trusted by students all over the world because we're transparent. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display reviews on tutors’ profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. Why? Because unlike other platforms, we accept only the top 10% of tutor applications.

Our research suggests that the average cost for private Spanish lessons in Ames 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.
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 Ames 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.
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.
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 Ames, 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 Ames 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 Ames, face-to-face.
