¡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

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.

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.

My name is Gloria. I was born in Barcelona but nowadays I live in a quiet place not far from the city. I am bilingual in Spanish and Catalan and I also speak English and French.
I have been teaching Spanish as a second language online since January 2015 and I have been teaching private classes in other topics to teenagers for about 15 years. Before teaching I had jobs related to my Higher Technical Certificate in Administration.
I know how hard is to learn a language, I know it because I earned two certificates in languages, my First Certificate in English at the Polytechnic of Central London and a Certificat de la Langue Française à l’ l’Alliance Française de Paris.
But what about my lessons? if you book lessons with me, we are not going to do only grammar. We are going to speak!
I will plan lessons according to your needs, level and desires and I’ll correct your mistakes throughout the lesson. I can help you with your pronunciation, vocabulary, expressions and grammar and we’ll focus on your needs based on our conversations.
Speaking is the most difficult goal to achieve and you’ll talk with me without any pressure. Step by step, we'll improve your ability to speak naturally.
If you have time to study on your own I’ll give you homework after the class.
But before you make a decision, you can book a trial lesson to find out if I am the right person to help you learn Spanish.See Reviews From Students

My name is Maribel, I'm Colombian, and I'm a respiratory therapist and language teacher. Currently, I'm studying a master’s degree in Neuro-pedagogy. Thanks to all this knowledge, I use a methodology that is 100% personalized to your needs and desires.
I am currently specializing in Spanish for travelers, this specialty is a little different from general Spanish, because here we look for a specific goal for your learning, such as a conference, a upcoming trip or simply learning specific terminology of your area.
Together we will set a goal, and in base on that we will create your curriculum, where you are the leader and I give you recommendations.
I implement mindfulness, and breathe work exercises to bring all our attention to the class and to favor the concentration and maximize the feeling of joy while learning. We will use online platforms, games, videos, and audios to create fun and interactive classes. I take the time to design the curriculum for each student because we all learn different.See Reviews From Students

Hello there! My name is Luciana, I am a language tutor with 2 years of experience (both in-person and online classes).
**Please, if you can, select Google Meet as our class platform**
I consider myself to be a very patience, disciplined, kind and creative person.
I am passionate about history, pastries, literature, linguistics, animals ( 100% dog lover! 🐕) and, of course, languages. So if you are interested in any of those topics we’ll make a good match :]
And if you don’t, that’s ok! I find very nourishing learning about topics outside my comfort zone.
I speak Spanish since i am a native speaker from Peru, with a neutral accent. I do speak English fluently, German and a bit of Japanese also.
I use a methodology based on research and methods proven by psychologists and teachers. My classes are ALWAYS prepared and structured to meet your needs. The methodologies i use are:
1️⃣ TPRS (Teaching Proficiency Through Reading and Storytelling) and comprehensible input -> For learning grammar and vocabulary in a engaging, stress-free way!
2️⃣ Breaking down your favorite songs, stories and articles -> To practice reading, vocab and pronunciation!
3️⃣ Direct method (speaking only in Spanish for intermediate or advanced students) -> To strengthen your speaking and listening abilities
ALSO, i always explain grammar step by step and provide flashcards to remember vocabulary (based on the science proved method “Spaced repetition”).
I provide each of my students a personalized plan and homework based on their goals, needs and way of learning.
✨ Teaching Philosophy
I do believe that the ability we have for learning is truly a gift, as i said in the video “The ability to learn is a seed that, with love and discipline, can grow into a beautiful flower or a juicy fruit”. As a tutor, my goal is to give you the best education possible so you can see progress and value the time and effort you are putting into the language.
I’d love to see you in my class soon!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
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 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.
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 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.

Our research suggests that the average cost for private Spanish lessons in Poughkeepsie 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.
Whether you live in the city centre or the suburbs of Poughkeepsie, 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 Poughkeepsie 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 Poughkeepsie, face-to-face.
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.
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 Poughkeepsie 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.
