“I have seen Spanish tutoring work for countless students who find themselves struggling to learn or remember elements of the language. Regular tutoring sessions throughout a semester or school year keep the student on target, although some students prefer to meet before major tests or assignments. Tutoring is also ideal for the independent learner who wants to learn Spanish for their career or for personal development.”
