If you have been looking for Buffalo Latin tutoring for you or your student, consider reaching out to Varsity Tutors. Whether you want to get supplemental instruction for your student so that they can keep up with the pace of their in-school Latin classes or you are an adult who wants to study a new language as a hobby, we can help. Private instruction can allow you to learn Latin in a comfortable and stress-free environment.

How can I or my student benefit from studying with a Buffalo Latin tutor near me?

Latin is the precursor of the modern Romance languages. However, it is not spoken by any community as a native language today, which is why it is considered a dead language. Nevertheless, studying Latin can have many benefits. Latin words are often used in science, medicine, law, technology, and other fields of study. Also, if you are studying religion or theology, a knowledge of Latin can open up new doors and allow you to read ancient texts in their original form. Latin is also the official language of the Vatican for communication purposes.

Private Buffalo Latin tutors can help you improve your pronunciation. As Latin is a dead language, there is no pressure to pronounce words in a certain way. However, becoming fluent in Latin can help you improve your Latin reading comprehension skills.

One of the benefits of studying with private Buffalo Latin tutors is that you can move at a pace that is comfortable for you. You can stop to spend more time on topics you are having difficulty with while skipping topics you already understand. For example, some students might want to focus on improving their reading comprehension skills while others might want to focus on grammar. You can take your time to ask questions. You won't have to worry about running out of time as you can always schedule more mentoring sessions if needed.

A private Buffalo Latin tutor can give you all of their attention and focus all of their resources on you. You can study without any distractions. Your private mentor can customize the lesson plans and try out different techniques until they find the ones that fit your learning style. For example, if you are a visual learner, they can use flashcards to help you expand your vocabulary. If you are interested in improving your Latin vocabulary, your mentor can focus first on Latin words that are similar to English words. For example, affirmo in Latin means I affirm in English. They can also introduce reading materials based on your level of Latin proficiency for you to use during your sessions.

Private Buffalo Latin tutors can also help you improve your grasp of Latin grammar rules. For example, inflection is important in Latin. In English, word order is used to determine the relationship of words in a sentence. However, in Latin, the ending of a word is used. Your tutor can help you learn how to express yourself and construct a coherent sentence by using word inflections. Another difference between Latin and English is that in Latin, nouns are gendered. They can be either masculine, feminine, or neutral. Sometimes this will be intuitive (for example, femina/woman and regina/queen are both feminine nouns). However, at other times, the gender of a noun must be memorized.

You can develop a rapport with your Buffalo Latin tutor, which can cause you to look forward to each session. Your instructor can motivate you to reach for your goals. They can even recommend books for you to read during your free time to improve your Latin proficiency.

How can I fit Buffalo Latin tutoring into my schedule?

One of the benefits of opting for private Buffalo Latin tutoring is the flexibility it can offer you. Regardless of your schedule and whether you want to study in the morning, at night, or on weekends, we can help you find a private mentor who can work with you or your student one-on-one.

Private tutoring is available both online and in person. If you choose to get private instruction over the internet, you can log onto our Live Learning Platform and study with your private mentor. As long as you have access to a working internet connection, you can study from any location. We have a video chat tool that allows you to see, hear, and speak with your instructor as if you were sitting across from them at the same table. There are several other useful tools. For example, you can work with your Buffalo Latin tutor on documents in real time using the live document editor. There is also a virtual whiteboard your mentor can use. These two tools can be used to learn new words or correct spelling mistakes. At any time, you can go back and watch recordings of previous sessions to refresh your memory.

You can also opt for in-person instruction. If you choose this kind of tutoring, we can arrange a meeting at your home, a local cafe, or a library, such as the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library.

There are also online Latin courses you can take from home. Signing up for an online course can allow you to study together with other motivated students under the tutelage of an expert. Students who sign up for an online course can choose between different course sections based on their schedule and level of proficiency.

Latin Tutoring review by Andrew in Buffalo, NY
Today, I worked first with Student K as we worked through the workbook exercises for Lesson 4, as well as making sure he understood the material -- in this case, learning about the infinitive form of the verb and then synthesizing all the previous material about conjugating verbs in the present, imperfect, and future tenses. With Student S, I reviewed this week's vocabulary (the numbers 1-10, 100, and 1000 in Latin) and the forms of the verb 'to be' in present. We completed some more of the exercises in the textbook as a way to get in some extra review of this material. Student B also worked on learning/ memorizing the numbers, as well as the forms of 'to be', and then we reviewed the content from lessons 1-3 also.

We reviewed lines from translation assignment I gave the student, in addition to reviewing grammar covered in previous session and Latin basics.

Latin Tutoring review by Nicole in Buffalo, NY
Today we went over first and second declensions, first conjugation verbs, and the verb sum in preparation for the student's test this week. She needed help with memorizing her declension paradigms, so we started with doing full declensions of some of her vocabulary words. We then covered first conjugation forms in the present tense as well as the conjugation of sum in the present tense. She understands the forms and concepts well. We finished our session by going over a few practice sentences from her textbook, during which I am confident that she successfully mastered something really important with Latin sentences: figuring out the subject by looking at the person and number of the verb.

Latin Tutoring review by David in Buffalo, NY
We worked on Latin review. The student showed much improvement in remembering all the parts of a word (genitive, gender, and multiple translations). We reviewed for 2 hours and the previous Wednesday had worked on translation over the phone for 45 minutes.

Latin Tutoring review by Peter in Buffalo, NY
This session, the student and I reviewed the definition of nouns, verbs, and adjectives. He discussed his classmates' names, and we talked about how these are proper nouns. We also used examples from the country game he played in class. We related these countries geographically back to Switzerland (where the Helvetii lived) and Rome. We talked about the historical story of Orgetorix told by Caesar. We ended by reviewing "laudare" and "monere," two verbs we discussed when we met in the spring. Next time, we will continue reviewing these words with sentences about his classmates and Orgetorix. I'm sending along a short homework assignment.

Latin Tutoring review by Abigail in Buffalo, NY
The student is approaching the end of the quarter in school, so our session this evening focused mostly on review. We started by talking over some of the concepts she had covered in her recent mythology unit on the story of Oedipus. I encouraged her to engage analytically with the story in addition to memorizing details, and she rose to the challenge. We discussed concepts like dramatic irony and the fatal flaw. From there, we moved on to a grammar review. I started with the fundamentals--the case system, the parts of a sentence, and verb forms. Then, we moved on to slightly more complicated issues like noun-adjective agreement. To finish up our session, we worked on some practice translation and discussed study skills and how best to prepare for Latin tests.
