How can a Latin 2 tutor help you?
After a year of studying Latin, you now have come to the extended rigors of a second year of studies. At this point, many more grammatical nuances are being added. From the many uses of participles to the idioms of Latin expression and the mystifying uses of the subjunctive mood, the second year of Latin studies can pose a number of unique difficulties for the aspiring reader of the classical language. Instead of being frustrated by the many intricacies of this class, contact Varsity Tutors today to find Latin II tutoring that can help you succeed in this important, but difficult, course of studies.
Latin I often presents the new Latin student with a great number of grammatical difficulties, and the same is true of Latin II, as students expand their knowledge. In Latin II, the forms of verbs and clause structure begin to probe into many constructions that are difficult to formulate in English, let alone in a foreign language like Latin. If your background education in English grammar hasn't provided you with the fundamental knowledge you need when learning to read and write in Latin, a personal tutor can help you review these core concepts or learn them formally for the first time. Likewise, Latin's baffling number of forms can be overwhelming at first glance, but an experienced tutor can help you see the intelligible patterns latent in all of these structures. Private Latin tutoring can likewise guide you through the increasingly complex vocabulary and sentences that are becoming part of your reading in Latin II.
While it is not a foreign idea that all the nuances and intricacies of Latin II do take time to understand, a Latin II tutor can help you master what you need to know to become conversational. They will meet with you at any location, even the comfort of your own home, or a library, cafe, or school facility where you feel most comfortable. The Varsity Tutors live learning platform allows you to meet with a private tutor either in person or face-to-face online. This gives you the flexibility to meet with your tutor at the time and location of your choice. Your instructor will pass assignments and feedback along on the web to track your progress and make sure you are learning on pace. Unlike regimented classroom courses, your tutor can actually be flexible in the timing of each session. They can meet in between classes, after work, or whenever you have the time, and can even accommodate changing schedules and work with you at different times each week.
Individualized instruction has many other benefits as well. Fast-paced lessons often don't leave time for students to ask questions and stop the instructor to clarify points. Your Latin II tutor bypasses this issue, because they work one-on-one with you to cover any topic of interest. Is there a particular aspect of the language you have trouble tackling, or a piece of literature you want to better understand? That's what your tutor is here for.
Since Latin classes do not focus on conversational communication, you will likely find yourself faced with classical authors by the time you are in the midst of your second year of studies. Such texts can be quite intimidating, but a personal tutor can help you approach them with confidence and insight, building your strength as a translator of increasingly complex texts, and thus preparing you for the rigors of Latin III, AP Latin, or any specific Latin literature courses that you might take in future years. Latin II is no minor affair, and your success in this difficult course requires devotion and a great deal of hard work. Don't take on the difficulties in total isolation. Contact Varsity Tutors and let us help connect you with the independent Latin II tutor who perfectly suits you!
