LET US ANSWER YOUR ?'s ABOUT...
Our private classes cost US$15 per hour. This fee includes class materials, tea or coffee during class, cultural workshops, access to all on-site facilities, and a class certificate. All you need to bring to class is a pen and a notebook to write on!
Discounts are available for those who book 30 hours or more of private classes ahead of time. Please see our prices page for more information.
As a service to our students who are attending small group classes during the morning and desire to have additional, personalized review sessions, we offer discounted supplementary private classes in the afternoon. They work just like our regular private one-on-one classes, but are offered at a discounted rate of US$24 per hour. This special price is only available to students who are taking small group classes during the same week(s) as supplementary private classes. Otherwise, the normal rate of US$30 per hour will apply.
We know just how important it is to have a structured learning environment in which to practice your Spanish skills. However, we also know how difficult it is to find time for traditional daily group classes. That’s why we offer private one-on-one classes for those who just don’t have the time to sit in a classroom five days a week.
If you’re a busy person who still wants to grow their Spanish skills in a way that’s only possibly by working with a skilled teacher, these classes are perfect for you.
Private classes are also an excellent complement to students in group classes who really want to push their abilities and grow their knowledge. For group class students who simultaneously book private classes to take during the same weeks of the group classes, we offer a special rate for these supplementary one-on-one classes.
You get to decide how long each of your class sessions will be and how many times a week you’ll meet with your teacher. Our private classes usually take place between 2 pm and 6 pm, Monday through Friday. Classes have a minimum length of one hour. We do not recommend sessions longer than three hours, because for most learners, after three hours most students’ attention spans begin to suffer, and effective learning becomes difficult. However, that choice is up to the student. Most of our students find that 1.5 to 2 hours is the best option for them.
Openings are first come, first serve. The availability of spots is dependent upon several factors, including our current schedule and seasonal demand.
While group classes offer an active and diverse learning environment, they also must go with the flow of the group as a whole. This pace or rhythm may not be suitable for some individuals.
One-on-one classes are an excellent opportunity for you to be able to learn at your preferred pace. Our academic director works with our teachers to plan and appropriately structure private one-on-one classes and to prepare the necessary learning materials.
The academic director will continue to check in with your teacher after every class to make sure that you are progressing to your satisfaction. If necessary, adjustments can be made to future classes. Classes can also incorporate a variety of exercises, including participatory audio and video programs, intensive writing exercises, and even games that help you stay relaxed and comfortable with the material. Homework will be assigned according to your needs and wishes.
For those who are preparing for standard exams, such as the Instituto Cervantes’ DELE (Diplomas of Spanish as a Foreign Language), or the Argentinian CELU (Certificate of Spanish: Language and Use), we highly recommend our private classes, which offer much-needed customizable one-on-one guidance and specialized study materials, as part of your preparation for either of these very challenging exams. While group classes are a good starting point, our private classes allow prospective examinees to focus on the necessary areas of study. Our teachers have a great deal of experience in preparing students who have gone on to successfully pass these exams.
This is also the perfect choice for professionals who want to focus on learning vocabulary and practicing scenarios that are relevant to their line of work—we have worked with doctors, medical students, legal professionals, IT staff, and professionals from many other fields.
Yes! One-on-one Spanish courses are available 6 pm to 9pm, Monday through Friday, and on Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm. Find more information on our evening and weekends classes page.
