How can Latin tutoring help you?

If you or your student is interested in studying Latin, reach out to Varsity Tutors today so that we can connect you with a Kansas City Latin tutor. Kansas City Latin tutoring can assist both professionals and students at all skill levels. Whether you are just starting out with Latin and need to learn the basics or you're more advanced and want to review specific topics, Kansas City Latin tutoring can provide learning assistance that can help you work towards your goals.

How can a Kansas City Latin tutor near me help me become more fluent?

Latin is the precursor of the Romance languages, including Romanian, Italian, and French, among others. It is referred to as a dead language because it no longer represents the spoken language of a community. There are numerous reasons why someone may choose to study Latin, such as that it can be used in the legal profession and scientific research fields. It can also be helpful if you or your student is interested in learning other languages. Whatever your reasons are for learning Latin are, a Kansas City Latin tutor can be there to offer guidance and support.

Kansas City Latin tutoring can supplement your language studies in a wide range of ways. Private instruction takes place in a one-on-one academic setting. This can be helpful as you will be the only student studying with your instructor during a session. This enables you to study at your own pace. If you are having a difficult time understanding vocabulary, you can spend as much time going over it with your instructor as you need to before moving on to any other topics. You also have control over the specific topics you prioritize. If you are having trouble understanding grammar and sentence structure, you can focus your attention on that topic while not devoting as much time to concepts you already understand. Additionally, you can ask questions as needed throughout your study sessions.

Kansas City Latin tutors can utilize their expertise to help you learn more about the most important aspects of Latin. They can help you expand your vocabulary and improve your understanding of key Latin grammar concepts. From conjugation to pronunciation, your needs are a top priority when you sign up for Kansas City Latin tutoring. The level of individualization you can get from a private language instructor could help you make more effective and efficient progress towards your goals in the language.

Your personal mentor can use a range of instructional methodologies to help you learn Latin. They can identify the methods that work best for you based on your strengths as a learner. For example, if your student is more of a visual learner, their instructor can provide flashcards so that they can review vocabulary. They can also provide written exercises you can complete, which can help give you a better understanding of concepts you may not be familiar with. Working through examples can give you an opportunity to fix mistakes quickly and ensure that you're using Latin properly.

When learning a new language, it is important to dedicate quality time to practicing it. This is another area where an academic mentor can help. While there is no pressure for you to develop an authentic Latin accent as it is a dead language, learning how to pronounce Latin consistently can be beneficial with learning vocabulary. Working on your pronunciation with your private instructor can also help you appreciate the sounds and rhythms of Latin prose and poetry.

How can I fit time with Kansas City Latin tutors into my schedule?

A major benefit of studying with a private instructor is that it provides flexibility. We take your family's schedule into account in addition to you or your student's needs. Then we can help you identify a private instructor who has the necessary knowledge and skills as well as the availability to work around your busy schedule.

Additionally, Kansas City Latin instruction is available both online and in-person. Online instruction takes place on the Live Learning Platform, where the instructor can communicate with you or your student face-to-face over video chat. Your instructor can offer live feedback and answer any questions you have as they come up. In addition, if you have questions about pronunciation or something you went over with your instructor in a previous session, you can watch recordings of them. Online instruction gives you the opportunity to improve your Latin skill set without ever having to leave the comfort of your own home.

If you prefer to work with a private Latin instructor in-person, you can connect with someone in your area who is eager to help you. You can meet at a location that works for you, such as your house, a local coffee shop, or the Linda Hall Library.

In addition to tutoring, Varsity Tutors provides online Latin language courses. These live lessons offer access to a virtual classroom where you can work with both an instructor and other students. Multiple course sections are available, meaning you or your student can enroll in one that matches with your schedule.

Session Summaries by Latin Tutors

Kansas City, MO Latin tutoring
I worked on assessing the student's reading and writing skills. We will need to work on fluency and comprehension. I also would like to work on phonics, blends, etc. His math skills are fine for his grade. I would like to see him memorize more of his facts. He was very good at word problems. I would like to see him more confident with better skills.

Today we went over questions that the student missed on his last test, and reviewed for a test he has on Monday. The material covered solving problems using all the different trig identities and formulas, as well as being able to find missing trig properties when only given partial information. I believe he now has a better understanding of the material and should do well on his test.

We discussed the convergence or divergence of sequences and series, and various tests to determine whether they are convergent or divergent and what they converge to. We also briefly touched on writing the formula for a sequence from a set of numbers in the sequence.

Today, we reviewed the material from the current chapter the student's class has been working on. We went back through all the Latin-to-English and English-to-Latin translations he'd done, getting another review of them without recourse to his previous translations. Some of the material he remembered very well. With the force of repetition over the past couple weeks, he's getting pretty good at remembering the distinction between hic and ille and iste. After reviewing the translations, we went through all the new vocabulary again with his flashcards, with me again prompting him for dative and genitive endings, and then did some practice pairing hic, ille, and iste with nouns and adjectives and declining them, as this is one of the skills that will be tested on the final exam.

Today we compared stories. I'd planned to have us read two versions of one story or two versions of another, but the student requested one of each, and since she was already familiar with the original versions, we were able to compare the stories to what we knew already and then to each other. We ended the session by drawing pictures of our favorite scenes and writing new endings. The version of the first we read had some Spanish phrases in the book, and the student both wanted and, was largely able to read these. I was impressed.

Reviewed basic 1st, 2nd, and 3rd declension noun forms as well as neuter forms; covered present tense verbs in all regular conjugations - formation and concepts - and put together a few short English to Latin sentences to reinforce the connection between memorizing charts and the actual language.
