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 Urbana, 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 Urbana 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 Urbana instead. (Please note: not all tutors offer a free trial lesson - some charge 30% of their regular lesson price.)
Passionate about languages and intercultural exchanges, I have taught English and Spanish as foreign languages for over 15 years in Puerto Rico, France, and online. I have had the opportunity to teach a wide variety of students from various backgrounds, integrating multicultural teaching resources to diversify learning styles. I happen to believe that there is not one and only way of teaching or learning a foreign language. Therefore, I adapt my lessons and methods to the students’ objectives, needs and interests. My goal is always to offer an open, honest, communicative and supportive environment in which every student can feel motivated and appropriately challenged.See Reviews From Students

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
Hello! I am Monica and I am a certified Spanish teacher with more than 7 years experience teaching Spanish to people from all over the world.
I have many hours of teaching experience, as from 2016 to 2019 I worked in a Spanish academy in my home city, Medellín, where I worked 40 hours per week teaching Spanish as a foreign language; I had 1-to-1 sessions and also groups of up to 6 students; the classes were amazing and I loved the experience since I could meet people from a range of cultures, thanks to that I realized that there are extraordinary people from every corner of the world.
Since 2019 I have been working as an online Spanish teacher and now I am living in the UK, studying a master's degree and dedicating free time to my favourite hobbies: Cooking, salsa dancing and swimming.
My lessons are planned to be enjoyable and comfortable. I use the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and I love getting to know my students well as it allows me to tailor each lesson to their personality and way of learning; every lesson you have with me will be carefully prepared for you, I hope to meet you soon!See Reviews From Students
I am a philosophy student at the University of Buenos Aires. Having to deal with classic philosophers and old texts I decided to specialize in ancient languages such as Latin, Ancient Greek and Sanskrit, but I also studied modern languages like English, French and German. I like music and I play the trumpet. I also love Tango music and really enjoy translating lyrics! Now teaching Ancient History. I provide visual History books in Spanish.
Now a certified E/LE teacher by Instituto Cervantes via Academia Buenos Aires.
I teach students from all ages. I love teaching kids! My lessons are for complete beginners, intermediate students who want to improve their spanish and advanced ones looking to polish their skills.
If you don't have materials don't worry! I have my own method for complete beginners and a progressive reading book which I believe is very useful. We can also use your own materials.

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
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
As a teacher, I use a communicative method that aims to learn a second language through real-life examples to be able to communicate in everyday situations. My classes are fun and effective. With me, you will learn grammar, vocabulary, culture, and we will focus on conversation. If you are a beginner, we can create a plan with the basic topics of Spanish so that you can start learning this wonderful language.
I hope to see you soon!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.
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.
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.

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