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.

Private Latin Teacher

I served as a Latin tutor at Walnut Hills High School year for about 3 years. I taught students of differing levels of Latin (Latin I, II, and III). The topics I covered in my teachings included grammar, the memorization of Latin words, and the translation of Latin texts. I myself have studied Latin for 4 years. I have taken the AP Latin course and received a 5 (the highest grade possible) on the AP Exam. In our lessons together, I will help to review any topics that are confusing, to complete homework assignments, to review and for tests and the AP Exam, etc. Lessons are tailored to each student's individual needs and learning styles.

About Rebeka

Private Latin Lessons Near You and Online

You may have heard that Latin is a dead language, but that simply isn't true. Latin lives on! Consider the many Latin-based languages used around the globe and the use of the language in several scholastic fields. Latin is still actively used in medicine, natural sciences, law, art, and philosophy. Plus, it's one of the official languages of the “Holy See,” which means it's spoken within the walls of Vatican City and Catholic churches around the world.

Latin has a rich history since it was the official language of the Roman Empire. As a result, the language spread outward from Rome, reaching from North Africa to Ireland and Spain to the Middle East. Learning Latin allows you to read Roman inscriptions inside ancient architecture or study philosophy in Latin like Immanuel Kant.

There are many benefits of taking Latin lessons, but perhaps the most surprising is its ability to improve your use of your native language. Languages like English, Spanish, and French are rife with words of Latin origin. As a result, memorizing Latin vocabulary will expand your understanding of words in your native tongue and help you understand grammatical concepts that are derived from this classic language.

Topics You'll Study with Your Latin Tutor

Latin is a very logically organized language. With an in-person or online Latin tutor, you'll be reading and speaking like an ancient Roman in no time. Private Latin lessons give you the personalized feedback and conversation practice that pre-recorded videos and books can’t deliver. It’s easy to get your questions answered when you have a Latin expert on your side.

What If There Are No Latin Tutors Near Me?

Even if you don’t have any Latin tutors in your neighborhood, online lessons make it possible to work with the perfect teacher from anywhere in the world. Having an online Latin tutor means you can learn from the comfort of your home, whenever it’s most convenient for you. Busy parents and kids also enjoy the scheduling flexibility that comes with online Latin tutors.

Since lessons are customized to meet your individual needs, no two Latin lessons are alike. For example, Latin classes for kids differ greatly from Latin lessons for adults. Your teacher will also cater your lessons to your own unique learning style. Let’s dive in and discuss some of the different topics you’ll learn at each level.

Sample Curriculum - Latin for Beginners

When learning Latin for beginners, you'll be introduced to basic grammar and sentence structure. You'll also start accumulating new vocabulary and pronunciation skills. Beginner Latin lessons typically cover the following topics:

  • The alphabet and the evolution of its pronunciation
  • Singular and plural forms
  • Nouns, pronouns, adjectives, and participles
  • Six cases and five declensions
  • Four verb conjugations and basic tenses
  • Basic vocabulary
  • Latin syntax

Sample Curriculum - Intermediate Latin

The intermediate level is intended for students who already have a firm grasp of basic Latin grammar, syntax, and vocabulary. Intermediate Latin lessons build upon the beginner concepts and often cover the following topics:

  • Reading aloud and eliding vowels
  • Forming questions
  • Formation and use of the gerund
  • Complex ablative constructions
  • Using the dative with special verbs
  • Irregular vocabulary, declensions, and conjugations
  • Irregular syntax and word emphasis

Sample Curriculum - Advanced Latin

Students taking advanced Latin lessons should already have a strong command of Latin grammar rules and constructions. Advanced students will perfect their skills and dive into the history surrounding this classical language by studying the following:

  • Latin composition
  • Detecting and comprehending nuances
  • Literary devices
  • The letters of Pliny
  • The letters, journals, and orations of Cicero
  • Learn to read Latin verse with Ovid, Vergil, and Catullus
  • Study of theological and philosophical texts written in Latin
