In-person language lessons with a tutor can be a great experience, but if you're unable to find an affordable private Spanish tutor in Chicago, online learning may be a good option for you. To take lessons with a Spanish tutor 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 lessons in Chicago is over $20 per hour. With online learning, you can save on travel expenses and have access to top tutors from around the world.
Many students who try online language lessons with a tutor are pleasantly surprised by the experience. At LanguaTalk, lessons are 1-on-1 to ensure you get your tutor's full attention and can make rapid progress. Lessons are conducted via video call, allowing you to communicate with your tutor and share learning materials, as if you were in the same room. Give it a try with a free trial session and see for yourself!
You can watch Spanish tutor 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 tutor is comfortable with.
Are you new to LanguaTalk? When you sign up, you'll get a token for a complimentary 30-minute trial lesson. Use this to meet your chosen tutor and decide whether you want to keep taking classes with them or look for a Spanish tutor in Chicago instead. (Please note: not all tutors offer a free trial lesson - some charge 30% of their regular lesson price.)
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.
Espero verte pronto!See Reviews From Students
I cover all levels and have experience in conversational classes. Every class is adapted to the student's level and will tailored to your needs.
Practical, conversational Spanish includes lots of activities, like word games, guess the word, creating stories using different tenses...
But if you prefer, we can also have dictations, make grammar exercises or choose online resources or magazine articles to talk about.
And, about me... I was born and raised in Spain (Burgos), and still living here. I love languages and always try to help as much as I can.
Book a trial so we can discuss your needs, I can answer your questions, and we can practice some Spanish!See Reviews From Students

¡Hola! My name is Alejandra, a certified teacher with more than 5 years of experience in English and Spanish teaching. In my classes, we will focus on speaking and you will be surprised at all the things you can express in a very short time. We will also practice some grammar, reading comprehension, listening, and writing, because a language has to be studied as a whole.
We will focus on your goals to achieve the best results and I will guide you through the whole process. To study, we will use readings, music, videos, grammar exercises, and any other resources that you may want.
I know you can do it and I will be with you all the time. Don't wait any longer. ¡Nos vemos! 🌷📚😊

¡Hola que tal! I'm Omar from Puebla.
I'm just a guy who realized that this language can be difficult and tedious to learn. So I want you to enjoy your lessons by simplifying them.
I adapt my teaching to the way you like learning, not all of us like learning the same way, you might like topics from grammar explained as easy as possible, or maybe as fast as possible. It's my mission to make you say: why wasn't it explained to me like this?
It doesn't matter if you know nothing at all, or if you already speak some Spanish, we can cover all the details so you can understand how this language works.
Of course I'm gonna need some effort from you, but I'll make sure this effort is worth it as we'll discard some of the tediousness that comes from learning a language.
So it's gonna be a pleasure to meet you, and help you learn this language.

I’m Berna, a very experienced and motivated teacher accustomed to deal with all ages students from all over the world. I’m teaching Spanish since 1998, clearly I really love teaching and dealing students.
I'm approachable, patient and understanding and my highest priority is efficiency.
That’s why my lessons are absolutely “customer focused”:
- Spanish for Specific Purposes (Healthcare, Tourism and Business Professional).
- Preparation for official exams as: DELE, SIELE, Diploma in Spanish for Business, Spanish GCSE & iGCSE, I.B. and A-Level & AS Level exams…
My classes are high cost-effective lessons in Spanish, affordable and totally adapted to your needs and time with variety dynamics, sources and materials.
No student is like another. After checking students’ level, we agree on what are their interests and needs.
Then I focus classes transmitting calm, celebrating successes and making see that mistakes are normal and with time and patience they will be overcome.
Hello everyone! I am Itziar and I am a Spanish teacher. I am currently living in Spain but I lived in different countries in the past. I am a native speaker with a neutral Spanish accent. My pronunciation is clear and easy to understand. I love teaching Spanish to international students and I am happy to see them making progress learning the language. I have three years of experience teaching Spanish to students from all over the world.
My teaching style:
Patient: I personally experienced the struggles of learning a new language. I learnt different languages from the scratch, so I will encourage you during the lesson.
Hands-on class: My lessons are practical. I will help you to boost your confidence in learning Spanish through practical exercises.
Competent: I am committed to helping you succeed in learning Spanish.
Functional: I will focus on the skills and knowledge you need to ensure you achieve your goals and needs.
Tailored lessons: I adapt to the needs and goals of individual students and I personalized your lessons based on the topics you want to learn.
My goal is to make the learning experience engaging and fun but also straight to the point. My biggest interest is that you can learn something new everyday and you improve your Spanish. Do not worry about making mistakes, they are a part of the learning process and I am a patient teacher :)

¡Hola! Hi! Bonjour! Ciao! My name is Yessica and I'm from Mexico. I have experience teaching English and Spanish. I love teaching, I love languages and cultures, so this is a great opportunity as I can speak with people from other countries and help them learn my language.
I'm patient and commited. My goal is helping you improve your fluency. I focus a lot on pronunciation and the correct use of vocabulary.
My classes are based mainly on conversation. We will speak about general topics and topics of your interest, sometimes using articles, stories, short videos. I can help with grammar as well but if you have a specific request you should let me know in advance so that I prepare the class acording to it.
Thanks for viewing my profile and I hope to see you soon!See Reviews From Students
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
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.
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.
To see our full FAQs or get help from our friendly team, click the '?' in the corner of the screen. You can also watch students talking about their experiences learning via LanguaTalk below.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our research suggests that the average cost for private Spanish lessons in Chicago 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 Chicago 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.
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 Chicago, 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 Chicago 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 Chicago, face-to-face.
