Latin has given me the basic understanding of how languages work that has enabled me to learn other languages as diverse as Hebrew, Russian, and Yiddish. I can connect Latin grammatical concepts and root words to familiar ideas to accelerate your learning and strengthen your skills.

Maurice is a blessing to my life and an answer to my prayers. If you are serious about learning Hebrew this man is the man to see. He is on time, good natured, and patient. His teaching method gives quick results.

I have a BA in Latin and Greek. It is true that these languages are “dead” and can be difficult to learn, but they are still useful in the modern world. An intensive study of Latin, for instance, provides a fundamental understanding of the language through the explanation of many grammar topics. This results in a fuller understanding of English grammar and vocabulary. It is good to develop the discipline required to learn Latin in high school and beyond.

In addition to tutoring, I teach Latin from scratch. I have typed up a series of Latin Outlines based on college course material. Outlines are divided into three sections: Grammar, Vocabulary, and Exercises.

My 12 year old son was hesitant to have Latin lessons based on the experience he had in a classroom setting. He just had his first lesson and immediately told me afterward, "I learned more from Jonathan than I did all year in class." He seemed to really connect with Jonathan and is actually looking forward to his next lesson.

I have been a tutor of Latin and Ancient Greek and a substitute Latin teacher for the past 5 years. I am a professional flutist and have been teaching flute lessons for 10 years, but Latin and Greek are my second passion, and I love keeping up my translating chops and passing on my love of the languages through teaching.
My Princeton thesis, titled "Dido and Aeneas: Two Works of Reception," discussed the relationship between Book IV of Virgil's Aeneid, Henry Purcell's opera "Dido and Aeneas," and Mark Morris' ballet of the same name. My students have ranged from 8-year-olds beginning Cambridge Latin Course to a 65-year-old wanting to translate Thucydides in his retirement. I have also substitute taught Latin at a private school.

Latin Lessons

Do you want to take Latin lessons with the perfect teacher near you? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place. Private Latin lessons and classes with a TakeLessons Certified™ teacher - whether in-home, studio, or online - accelerates your progress, increases enjoyment, and improves every student's chances of becoming a fluent user of Latin. Private tutoring makes learning easy, it's more affordable than you might think, and it's the most impactful way to improve your skills for beginner or advanced learners.

Our Latin tutors work with students of all ages: kids, teenagers, adults, and even seniors. They can teach you the origins of Latin, in addition to the vocabulary, the grammar, the punctuation, the consonants, the vowels, allophones, sentence structures, gender differences, historical influence, and other technical aspects. Learn about and experience the physical, social, and emotional benefits of learning Latin.

Latin can take up to 1000 hours of deliberate practice to gain General Professional Fluency. A private tutor can help keep you focused, committed, and motivated, not to mention their ability to help you overcome any language hurdles you have trouble with.

Your tutor offers you expert language learning techniques and tips, and helps you develop good practice habits, so that you can maximize your learning experience, and achieve your goals faster. Learning Latin is extremely useful, as it can help with career prospects, academic performance, greater appreciation of history, business opportunities, and personal relationships. Become a better Latin speaker, reader, writer, and communicator.

Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced student, our private teachers come from a variety of backgrounds, making it easy to find the perfect match for your interest and skill level. Each instructor's specialties are listed in their profile, along with details about their background check, photos, student feedback, and lesson availability.

Students taking online Latin classes benefit from greater convenience, enjoy better rates, and can choose from a wider selection of teachers nationwide. If you've ever taken any foreign language classes over Skype, you'll love using our interactive TakeLessons Classroom.

We guarantee a personalized experience that will make you glad you took up private lessons. In fact, we are so committed to your happiness that we offer all new customers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on your first lesson.

Alternative Language Lesson Methods:
Latin Apps and Books

For independent language learners, downloading popular language apps - free and premium - or checking out Latin books from the library are excellent options. They cost less overall than private lessons, and allow you to learn at your own pace, on your own time, and the topics of your own choosing. The downside is that you don't have personal instruction for the times you need to overcome any challenging obstacles. Learning with a partner or a teacher gives you the personal interaction you need to verbally practice and attempt the language.

Group Classes

Taking small group classes to learn a new language is another good way to acquire basic language skills, immediate feedback, and human interaction. It combines both passive and active learning. A professional instructor leading the class can keep the agenda tight and ensure each student gets the chance to participate, and get their questions answered. It can also be more affordable than private 1-on-1 lessons. Find local group classes near you by doing a quick Google search, or better yet, sign up for TakeLessons Live, the new and affordable way to learn languages, and to learn how to play musical instruments in small groups of 5-8. You pay a flat monthly or annual fee, and get unlimited access to hundreds of classes online every month. Perfect for beginners.

At TakeLessons, we understand every student is different, and that the best way to learn any language is to try a combination of various learning techniques. Try all of the above, find out what works best for you, and then study hard and smart. It's only a matter of time before you achieve your goals.
