Please select the Spanish program that interests you, or the one which adapts best to your teen's specific needs:
Sessions shorter than 1 hour are not available as they would not provide the student and teacher with sufficient time for the class dynamics which will always include ice breakers, content review, repetition, and practice with the language.
All participants for a private class (one-on-one or private self-assembled groups) ...
There is no minimum age for classes where at least one of the parents is always present and actively participates in the class.
We cannot make exceptions to the minimum ages if parents are not participating in the class.
Please note that if a parent required to be in class attempts to leave the class at any time without their children, the class will stop and any remaining time of that session will be considered used. The parent's participation will release our school from any liability that may arise from these classes. The care and safety of your children during class will be your sole responsibility.
Please keep in mind that we specialize in adult education and that our methodology, instruction, and materials are tailored towards the needs of adults and not to that of children. By signing up, you understand that we cannot dedicate time or resources to develop training materials for children and that the material for adults will be used under your supervision and will be your sole responsibility.
Pricing for private groups will vary depending on the size of the group. Each parent and each child over 4 years old will be counted as individual participants. If only one of the participants is older than 4 years old, the price that would apply would be that of one-on-one classes.
To be more accommodating to families, both parents and a kid, or 2 kids and a parent, can study in a private class and pay the regular price per hour for one-on-one classes.
Once your child or children turn(s) 16, he could also be considered for the small group classes that our school assembles. :)
Please note that you may look into other schools that specialize in teaching children and toddlers. Even though we neither know nor can recommend a language school of that type, you may do your own research and due diligence through Yelp.com and other sources.
You are welcome to stay during all/some of our Spanish tutoring sessions with your son/daughter.

Having stated that, by enrolling, you agree to hold SpanishBlackbelt and any tutors or employees free and harmless of any liability for any/all claims arising out of the Spanish tutoring sessions.

Yes they can!
Ideally they should not. Students of different levels should consider one of these alternatives:
Yes, children of different ages can study together in the same class, and this approach is often referred to as "multi-age" or "mixed-age" grouping.
Some benefits include:
Private self-assembled groups are groups that the students themselves form... with their family members, friends, etc. In contrast, the groups that you find on our website are groups that the school forms, where individuals join others that have joined individually as well. These groups found on our website are only available for students 16 years of age and up.
Our tutor's primary focus is on your teen's learning experience during our sessions. While our tutor won't directly communicate with your teen's teachers, your teen is encouraged to bring any class materials, past or present, to our sessions. Additionally, we welcome communication from your teen's school teacher, either directly or through your teen, to share any relevant information they believe would be beneficial. Our tutor is committed to adapting the class objectives and methods to incorporate any suggested or necessary improvements. We're here to support your teen's academic journey in the best way possible, and your input is highly valued.
We can assist with assembling after school Spanish classes provided that they are conducted live online over Zoom video.
