Private Latin Teacher

In addition to studying Classical Latin for 9 years, I have helped elementary school, middle school and high school students with Latin grammar, vocabulary, and word structure. I am interested in helping teenagers and adults better understand and remember every facet of this remarkable language. I work with Latin students on Latin-to-English and English-to-Latin translations, and I'm familiar with many courses, such as Wheelock's Latin, Henle Latin, and Ecce Romani. Working together, we aim for complete mastery of the Latin language!

About Natalie

For more than 11 years, my goal as a tutor has been steadfast: I help students learn more and make progress in their studies. I don't just teach them how to count, read, and write: I show them how to build on their skills and reach their true potential. I know from my own experience how hard it is t

Pu S.
My son has been working with Natalie on SAT practice tests, mainly on the English portion of the SAT. Her style of teaching is to help him thinking through the problems and the ways to tackle them. So at the end of the day, my son is learning the tools to solve a problem/answer a question correctly. When he is doing the tests himself, Natalie’s approach is stuck with him. Overall, his time in Natalie’s class has been well spent. I am also glad to see that with all these remote learning at his school, he is able to get one-on-one attention every week to truly learn something and get him prepared for SAT.
Lynne
My 14 year old daughter worked with Natalie weekly over a 2 month period to prep for the SSAT and HSPT. She did a fabulous job helping my daughter prepare; she was super knowledgeable, patient, and supportive. My daughter has so much confidence going into her tests, thanks to Natalie. We highly recommend her!!!

Jenni is an excellent teacher with a genuine and obvious understanding and love for languages. She was able to teach our family on an elementary level, and patiently but thoroughly introduce and expand on more advanced topics. She is a true professional and our family highly recommends her. We came a long way on our Greek journey in a short period of time. Thank you, Jenni!

Private Latin Teacher

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

More than 2 decades of experience in the Latin Language. I taught Latin at a private school for 10 years, teaching all levels (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced). I also taught Latin at the Centro de Lenguas in the University of Cd. Juarez, Mexico, where the majority of my students were Biology college professors who wanted to learn the language to better understand the scientific terminology used in the sciences. I'm familiar with the most common Latin courses used by schools (Oxford Latin Course, Cambridge Latin Course, Ecce Romani, Wheelock's Latin Course, etc.). My students can expect the highest quality of instruction. I will guide you step by step and together we will discover the beauty of this amazing language. Do not be intimidated, you will really enjoy learning this language, give it a try!

About Ivan

I'm a very friendly instructor who will give you individualized attention from the beginning of your class till the end (I like my students to take full advantage of their day and make the best out of each class, or like the Romans would say "Carpe Diem-seize the day").

Mr. Iniguez is an excellent teacher. He has a highly energetic and enthusiastic disposition and a lot of patience for his students. There has never been a case in which I asked a question that he did not give his best to answer. He is very welcoming and knowledgeable! Not only will you get the instruction that he promises, but he will also give you fundamental knowledge on the origin of whatever he is teaching (essentially he explains how the knowledge is transferring to you came to be in history and why it matters). You will NOT regret being taught by this excellent instructor!

Ivan consistently expresses passion in his approach to instruction and a tremendous deal of empathy when it comes to his students' learning needs/abilities. He is the best Latin instructor I've met to date.

Mr. Iniguez is a dedicated, caring teacher, extremely well educated and experienced who always impressed me with his hard work and attention to all his students. They showed great affection for him, the kind that only intuitive and insightful teachers elicit from their students.

Ben has been very diligent and disciplined in building demanding but realistic lesson plans every week, as well as in creating thorough and helpful practice exercises.

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
