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,

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

🎓 MSc in Speech Therapy and Cognitive Neuroscience, BA in Spanish Linguistics and Literature, and Diploma in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
📚 Spanish teacher since 2014. Experience with students of all levels- from beginner to advanced.
✏️Tailored curriculum for all students with activities and materials that reflect the actual use of Spanish E.g. audio, ads, texts, and interviews of native speakers.
📝In the grammar classes, the students receive detailed information on grammar issues following a designed curriculum that goes from A1 (beginner) level to C1-C2 (advanced) level. When practicing, we have a conversation and I give feedback using what they´ve learned.
In the conversation lessons, we focus on speaking and listening and I always promote debate and offer necessary corrections. We can cover a range of topics, e.g., current events, culture, science, philosophy, or even a topic proposed by the student beforehand.

My name is Carlos, I am 38 years old and I live in Malaga, in the south of Spain. I am a Spanish teacher for foreigners, I love meeting people from different cultures and teach them my native language as well as Spanish culture. I consider myself a positive, cheerful and sociable person.
I am currently an online Spanish teacher, working with students from all over the world. I have been working as an online teacher for 4 years, but before coming into this new world of online teaching I worked for 8 years for different Spanish schools for foreigners in the city where I live, Malaga.
As a Spanish teacher, I’d say that I am a very dynamic and attentive teacher, I give special importance to communication, without leaving aside grammar. I think grammar is important as long as providing a communicative approach . Likewise I adapt to all the needs, levels and goals of the student. Every day I look for useful material and tools for my Spanish lessons, therefore I can help the student with very suitable material which I have been saving and using all this time with students for their proper learning . Within this material there are images, videos, grammar exercises, vocabulary, communicative activities ... etc.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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Some tutors on LanguaTalk may also provide in-person lessons in Oak Park, 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 Oak Park 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.
Our research suggests that the average hourly rate for private Spanish lessons in Oak Park 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.
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.
