How can an IB Classical Languages SL tutor help you?
There is nothing standard or moderate about the study of classical Latin or Greek. These ancient languages have a grammatical complexity that far surpasses most modern Western languages, and they require great expertise and much work to master. International Baccalaureate (IB) Classical Languages Standard Level (SL) coursework will ask you to spend dedicated time gaining the linguistic skills needed to understand and translate prose and poetry from major authors in these classical tongues, eventually testing your skills on the cumulative IB exam. Do not risk doing anything less than your best throughout your course and on test day. With an expert Greek or Latin tutor, you can get a thorough grammar and literature review to help you bolster your weakest areas of understanding.

IB Classical Languages SL tutoring is available to help you undertake a thorough review of the topics that you have covered through your years of classical language study, providing you with an excellent preparatory track for the rigors of the translations that will face you throughout your course and on test day. Tutors work with language students from a variety of backgrounds, and therefore are able to address any particular issues that you might have. Likewise, they can help you to review not only the topics you have covered in-depth, but also to review the grammatical and literature topics that have perhaps received less attention during your years of study. With an able hand, your tutor can guide you through the complexities of translating classical literature, giving you confidence for exam day when you will be faced with the difficult task of spot-translating an unknown passage. From the Greek poetry of Ovid to the labyrinthine Latin rhetoric of Cicero, be prepared for the most difficult of passages that may be presented to you on your exam.
Skilled not only in the subject material of classical languages but also in the subtleties of linguistic pedagogy, your personal tutor can help you diagnose your grasp of fundamental inflectional and syntactical rules as well as assay the breadth of your vocabulary, thus challenging and edifying you while you prepare for exam day. They can pass on a wealth of test-taking knowledge to help you tackle the exam confidently and with ease. They can help you with pointers that can be a valuable way to ensure that you spend less time on each question.
When you work with a personal tutor, you gain access to a flexible resource that can make adjustments based on your needs. You can choose to meet in-person or use our live learning platform to meet face-to-face online for your tutoring sessions. If you meet in-person, you can choose a location that works for you, such as home, a coffee shop, a library, or anywhere else you like. Further, you can ask to have fewer or more tutoring sessions at any given time, which can be valuable when a test is approaching. If you have a class project or homework assignment that you are struggling with, your tutor can help!
