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

I have tutored Latin for several years and received awards for my own proficiency. I began to learn Latin in middle school, and I was even a member of the Junior Classical League. In College, while I pursued my degree in Humanities and Cultural Studies, I took every Latin education opportunity available to me, including supervised reading and translation work in my undergraduate thesis. I have fulfilled courses through Medieval Latin, which was at the graduate school level. I received an award in Latin Excellence this past Winter semester, at my graduate school.

About Maria

Rachel
I had a college language placement exam looming, so I signed up for 10 lessons with Susan to help me review and prep for the exam. I ended up testing out of two semesters of college-level German, which was even better than I had hoped for! I couldn't have done it without Susan. She was fantastic at explaining the tricky subjects, like accusative vs. dative cases, and helped me rigorously review all of the material. Plus, learning with her was fun, and I looked forward to the lesson every week.

She is very kind,knowledgeable teacher and she is very good with kids.

Private Latin Teacher

We all learn languages for different reasons. You might want to succeed in a class. You might want to translate with proficiency. You might even want to enter boldly into the heart and soul of an ancient writer.

Whatever your goals may be, I want to encourage and guide you on your journey along the rugged and sometimes scary linguistic roads paved by the ancient Greeks and Romans. Through a deliberate and stepwise process I will help you master the grammatical logic of the language, teaching you not just what to learn, but how to learn. If this all seems very serious, don't worry, there will also be lighthearted fun along the way.

I hold a master's degree in Biblical Studies with an emphasis in Biblical Greek and have three years experience in tutoring graduate students in Greek.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if are looking for help with beginner to advanced Koine or Latin.

About Alex

Hi, I'm Alex. My idea of a good time is reading and discussing ancient texts, especially the Bible, over a cup of coffee with friends. This age-old method, I believe, is one of the best ways to learn dead languages like Greek and Latin. While I love to analyze and question the details of texts with

"I have been taking Latin lessons with Ben for some time and am very pleased with his method. I have never studied Latin before, so we began from scratch, using a lesson plan built by Ben with the help of college-level textbooks. 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. On top of this Ben is a polite, pleasant and accommodating fellow, open to questions and suggestions. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to study Latin."

Private Latin Lessons Near You

You may have heard that Latin is a dead language, but that simply isn't true. Latin is quite alive. It's still used today 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 language classes near you, 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. 

Topics You'll Study in Latin Classes Near You

Latin is a very logically organized language. With a private tutor, you'll be reading and speaking like an ancient Roman in no time. When you learn to speak Latin with a private tutor, you'll benefit from receiving immediate feedback and having your teacher's undivided attention. 

You'll learn to speak Latin and learn to read Latin more quickly than if you were studying on your own or in a large class setting. Plus, private Latin tutors near you will customize your lessons to your individual interests and goals. Your teacher will work with you to address challenges and help you stay motivated. 

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. 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 classes 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 near you 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
