Why hire a language tutor through Airtasker?

Learning a new language can be challenging, especially when there’s a deadline for mastering it or if your grades are on the line.

Top Language Tutor related questions

Some questions to ask your potential language tutor include:

  • Are you a native speaker, or do you have any certifications?
  • What experience do you have with teaching this language?
  • What are your interests outside teaching?
  • What’s your teaching style?
  • What’s your background in teaching kids or adults?
  • Do you offer online lessons? 
  • Have you worked with a student in a similar situation before?
  • Are there any resources I need to buy?

Yes, you can certainly try looking for an online language tutor through Airtasker. If you prefer virtual lessons to face-to-face tutoring, simply indicate this on your task post. This may make it easier for you to find a language tutor since you won’t be limited to those in your neighbourhood or town. Just make sure you have a computer and internet set-up that can support your online learning sessions.

To find a language tutor near you, simply tap the “Post a task” button and fill out the form. Indicate your location and say that you want in-person lessons, as well as your budget. Our platform connects you to nearby experts who fit the job description. 

This highly depends on the available Taskers. You can find Spanish, Korean, Mandarin, and even Russian tutors on our platform. If you’re lucky, you might even find a multilingual language tutor! Language tutoring isn’t the only thing a nearby Tasker can do for you, either. Some can help out with writing or even give swimming lessons for the kids. Just make a request, and in a matter of minutes, you can find a Tasker who can help you with your to-do list. 

It depends. Some Taskers may be able to help kids or teens with language lessons, while others may not have a lot of experience teaching younger students. If you are requesting on behalf of a child who’s learning a language, we highly suggest indicating the child’s age in the task post. This helps you filter out tutors who don’t have the necessary experience, and it makes it so much easier to find the best tutor for your child.

If you can study for 8 hours every day, it will take a typical English speaker anywhere from 2-3 months to master a language. According to the Foreign Service Institute, languages like Spanish, German, Indonesian, and Hindi are easier to master, while Hungarian, Vietnamese, Arabic, and Korean are on the more challenging end of the spectrum. If you don’t have enough time to learn your desired language, you can always hire a translator via Airtasker instead.

What do language tutoring services include?

Language tutors get to know the student’s goals and have mastery over the preferred language. Additionally, they can help the student learn more effectively. The specifics can vary depending on the student’s needs, the tutor’s style, and the language difficulty. But, in general, here’s what you can expect when you hire a private language tutor through Airtasker:

Assessment and class requirements

First, the Tasker gets to know the student and their context. This includes why they’re trying to learn that language (for school, for work, they’re moving to another country, travelling, or they’re about to take the IELTS). It also includes the student’s mother tongue and the language they’re taking up. Whether it be Russian, Korean, or Japanese lessons, various language tutors are available on our platform. 

The language tutor may also need to know and discuss foreign language class requirements, where or why the student struggles, and their learning style. Establishing this foundation is essential, especially since the Tasker needs to know the student’s goals and obstacles. 

Giving additional instruction

Getting a tutor means getting additional, personalised instruction that may not be available to students in a large class. So, your private language tutor may use different foreign language teaching techniques. This process can include reviewing the language’s rules, using flashcards for vocabulary words, or facilitating an audio-lingual method of learning a language, and more.  

Some tutors and students may also find it worthwhile to review English grammar (especially if this is the student’s native language). This step can help the student grasp the similarities or differences of the language they’re trying to master.

Giving drills or exercises

The Tasker may also give additional drills or exercises to test the student’s ability to read, write, and speak the foreign language. Listening tests may also be administered to check how quickly the student can understand native speakers. These kinds of tests may vary, depending on the student’s learning style and where they are with their language coursework.  

Since practice is key for mastering a language, these extra exercises are meant to strengthen students’ skills. 

Assistance with class assignments

Students can also count on their language tutor to help them with assignments like essay-writing, giving a report, and so on. Taskers may proofread the assignments and point out any errors the student has made. Not only does this give the student a better grade; it also fosters continuous learning.

Working with available resources

Language tutors may go to the student’s desired location or hold online lessons, depending on the student’s preference and needs. They may also provide or suggest supplementary materials like websites, apps, videos, or TV series to help the student learn.
