Today I am going to explain How to Find a Spanish Tutor Online. Having native speaker as your tutor, you can progress much faster rather than practice yourself. You will catch new words, sentences, and phrases that will help to improve your Spanish skills. When you find a tutor online, you don’t need to use time and money for moving from one place to another. In addition, you can find high-quality Spanish tutors for surprisingly cheap prices (starting from $2/hour).
You can also take advantage of bonuses that I provide in this article.
1.Baselang – Unlimited Spanish Lessons for $129/Month
If you want to learn Spanish fast, Baselang is my #1 recommendation. They provide unlimited 1-on-1 lessons for Spanish for their affordable monthly fee.
All of their teachers are qualified professionals and native speakers. Most of them are from Venezuela. That also explains why they can provide a cheap pricing. You can take as many lessons as you want and don’t pay anything more.
In addition, they provide a 7-day trial for only $1. If you aren’t satisfied with their service during the first 35 days, they offer you a full refund AND $20 for “wasting your time”.
In my own experience their Spanish teachers are encouraging, friendly and really listen to the needs of each student. You can progress at your own pace or follow their curriculum.
2.Italki (Get a $10 Bonus)
This is my #1 recommendation to find Spanish tutors. With a quick search, I found 385 Spanish tutors in Italki in 5 seconds. Here is a screenshot of tutors that came in first in the search.
Karina Cordones provides Spanish lessons fro $5/hour. She has already completed 52 tutoring lessons with a rating of 4,9 out of 5. Then Hugo Ortegano gives tutoring lessons for $5,90/hour. He has already given 496 lessons and his rating in Italki is impressive 5 out of 5.
Italki is one the biggest language learning communities in the world. It’s a place where I learned to speak better Spanish with a native Spanish speaker. The great thing when finding Spanish tutors is that many of them are living in a cheap country where a cost of living is lower. For example, Hugo and Karina live in Venezuela which is many times cheaper than European countries or U.S.
In Italki you can also get a $10 bonus when you register through my link. In addition to finding to tutors, you can also connect with other language learners in Italki for free.

Verbling is one of the biggest language tutoring service on the Internet. One of my friends is working there as a German teacher and she has greatly enjoyed using it. Her students have learned a lot and lessons have been enjoyable for students.
On Verbling they have conversational curriculum which means that they put more focus on speaking than reading. Based on my experience this kind of method is much more effective for learning new languages rather than “old-school” classroom method.
Of course, they personalize lessons to tailor your needs. So, if you prefer written exercises more, they’ll provide them for you.
More than one million people worldwide are using LingQ to improve their language skills. It is one of the best language learning tools that I have ever seen. I am for sure going to use it for the next language that I am going to master.
In LingQ language community you can have a language exchange with other people like in Italki but you can also buy tutor lessons from native speakers (see the image below).
You can go through lessons that language tutors have created in LingQ or you can have a lesson with them. If you want to save money, you can also book 4 on 1 group discussion which costs only $5/hour.
LingQ service is also in general quite cheap because it costs only $75/year which includes lots of premium features to help you to learn Spanish or any other target language.
Fiverr is a huge marketplace of online freelancers. You can find there any kind of service. You can also find Spanish teachers and tutors in Fiverr with a quick search. I think that there isn’t such service that you couldn’t find in Fiverr. Their prices start from $5/service. That’s the reason its name is FIVErr.
Unlike other websites above, Nulengua is dedicated only for Spanish tutoring. It is a simple platform for connecting Spanish tutors and students. They don’t have hundreds of tutors but they have enough that you can find the one that you like.
Nulengua seems to be a good way to finding professional tutors. They offer the first lesson for free. After that, the lesson will cost at least $10/50 minutes. The cost depends on how many tokens a teacher has. 1 toke = $1. For example, a lesson with Michelle Candido (see in the picture above) costs 12 tokens which equal to $12.
Not very expensive but note very cheap either.
How to Have a Lesson with a Your Spanish Tutor?
The process of arranging lessons is very simple. Preply explains it in the following way:
Usually, you will use Skype or Google Hangouts when arranging tutoring lessons. I have never used Google Hangouts myself so Skype works very well.
The process of having tutoring lessons is very easy. Maybe you are a bit excited before the first lesson but I think that it’s very nice to practice a language with a native speaker especially if you find a good tutor. And if you are using those platforms that I mentioned above, you will for sure find a great tutor for you.
