How can a Finnish language tutor help you?
Finnish presents a wide array of challenges, and native English speakers may encounter a variety of additional problems due to the many linguistic differences between Finnish and English. For example, unlike English, Finnish is an agglutinative language. This means that it constructs many of its words as combinations of short linguistic units with distinct meanings added to a root word. As a result, a person can construct a Finnish word that translates as a complex English sentence! Many other features of Finnish do not directly correlate with aspects of English, and may thus present stumbling blocks for you if you are a native English speaker. Many characters used in written Finnish are not present in written English, for example, and no future tense is needed as other grammatical features convey the same meaning. In addition to the linguistic challenges Finnish presents, finding effective and efficient instruction can also be difficult.
Formal classes may not be taught in ways that make sense to you. They may rush over topics you find confusing to spend extra time on material you already understand. In a traditional classroom setting, it is nearly impossible for your teacher to spend individual time with you, much less ensure that all students master a subject. This leads to massive gaps in knowledge among you and your classmates. Study groups may not offer you the personal attention you need to answer your questions, and impersonal resources like textbooks and websites may not help your situation either. Have you ever wished that you could sit down with a fluent speaker of Finnish and learn the language with his or her help? Varsity Tutors can help you connect with such personal instruction through one-on-one Finnish tutoring.
