Private In-Home and Online Latin Tutoring

Receive personally tailored Latin lessons from exceptional tutors in a one-on-one setting. We help you connect with in-home and online tutoring that offers flexible scheduling and your choice of locations.

If you or your student needs extra help with your Latin studies, Varsity Tutors can find you a Chicago Latin tutor. Studying a foreign language can be rewarding, but there can also be times when it gets frustrating especially if you encounter topics that you just can't make sense of. Chicago Latin tutoring provides access to an expert teacher you can consult with every time you have questions. This can be an excellent way to make learning more efficient and help you progress steadily in your studies.

How can a Chicago Latin tutor near me help me work towards fluency?

Modern Romance languages such as Spanish, French, Romanian, and Italian came from Latin. There are also many English words that originated from Latin that's why English speakers can have an easier time learning Latin vocabulary. If you're studying to become a lawyer,working as a scientific researcher, or want to teach theology, Latin can be a useful language to know for your professional work.

Though Latin words can be similar or closely related to English words, there are peculiarities that can be difficult for English speakers to understand. Studying with Chicago Latin tutors can give you or your student the expert support when it comes to making sense of the different aspects of Latin. The lessons are one-on-one sessions, which make it possible for your teacher to give you their full attention and prioritize your learning needs. If you have questions about grammar or sentence structure, you can ask your teacher directly and get immediate answers or explanations. You don't have to wait for your turn to ask or clarify points about the language.

With Chicago Latin tutoring, you can study using a customized study plan, which can be a more effective way to address your difficulties and learning gaps in the language. Unlike in traditional classroom courses where you have to follow the set curriculum, private instruction allows you to skip topics you already know and focus on the ones you are struggling to understand. Your instructor can assess your level of understanding during the first few meetings you have and design a study plan you can follow in your succeeding lessons. With one-on-one instruction, you can study at your own pace, ask as many questions as you want, and put your effort where it can have the most impact. Your teacher can also spend as much time as needed in helping you understand a challenging topic since there are no other students to worry about.

Your Chicago Latin tutor can adjust his or her teaching methods based on your strengths and weaknesses and unique attributes. We know that not all students learn the same way and at the same speed. Some learn best using visuals, while some remember better if they hear certain expressions over and over again. Your private instructor can determine how you best learn new concepts and design exercises based on your natural learning style. If you're a visual learner, your teacher can use flashcards with pictures during vocabulary drills, or work with you in drawing a colored chart or graphics showing the different inflections or word endings in Latin, which is the key to understanding the meaning of sentences.

Language skills involve reading, writing, speaking, and listening. When you work with Chicago Latin tutors, you can have language partners who can help you in all four skills. For example, if you want to improve your speaking, having an unrehearsed conversation with your private instructor in Latin can be an excellent way to pick up on the nuances of grammar, learn how common expressions are used, and how to use different sentence structures in Latin.

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

One of the best things about private instruction is the flexibility you can have when it comes to choosing when and where you want to study. We work hard in finding you an experienced teacher who can support your learning needs and meet you on your desired schedule. If you have been postponing your Latin studies because you're not able to find a class that fits your availability, private instruction might just be the solution you've been waiting for.

When you opt for Chicago Latin tutoring, you can attend online or in-person lessons. Online lessons take place on our proprietary Live Learning Platform where you'll use video chat to communicate with your teacher. It also has a document editor that you and your instructor can use when studying challenging topics in detail such as verb conjugations and adjective-noun agreement. If ever you need to go back to a topic, the platform lets you watch recordings of your previous lessons. This becomes extremely helpful for reviewing pronunciation and other tips or pointers your teacher shared with you in the past. Online lessons with a private instructor make it possible to improve your Latin skills without leaving the comfort of your home.

The in-person lessons also offer flexibility and convenience since you can set your own schedule and choose the location where you want to meet your teacher. If you prefer to study at home, we'll find you an instructor near your area. It's also possible to meet your teacher at a coffee shop or at a location such as the Chicago Public Library.

You might also be interested in combining private instruction with live online courses to experience the unique benefits of both. We offer online Latin courses led by expert teachers who can provide in-depth lectures about different aspects of the language. The course lets you or your student learn in a collaborative online environment together with other students who are passionate about improving their skills in Latin.

Latin Tutoring review by Salome in Chicago, IL
Today we studied for math test on converting units. Also brainstormed and outlined an essay on perseverance. The student did a good job brainstorming for her essay, but just needed assistance in organizing her points.

Latin Tutoring review by Brian in Chicago, IL
We worked almost the whole session on English work.  Reading and answering questions from Julius Caesar the play.  The student has shown significant progress in his work in just two weeks.  His work ethic has become better and his focus is more on academics.  I truly believe if we can work on some basics of writing and just basic organization skills he will have his grades in the high B's.  At the end of the session we went over a history project due in two weeks and a game plan of how to accomplish that.

Latin Tutoring review by Lauren in Chicago, IL
The student and I discussed the format of her previous tests for Personality Psychology, as well as her expectations for the class. She reported that she had a test the next day on Trait Psychology and associated topics. We went through her test review outline one topic at a time and discussed each one in depth. We not only reviewed definitions, but also focused on why certain theories/approaches are important and how they are limited. We used some case examples, as her tests consist mostly of scenarios from which certain constructs must be identified. At the end of the session, we discussed ways to manage test anxiety and reviewed some effective study methods.

Latin Tutoring review by Frank in Chicago, IL
I met the student for our first tutoring session to help him prepare for his college algebra test on Friday, November 16.  He is a freshman and is taking a class that is a general college algebra course covering linear and polynomial equations, rational functions, exponential and logarithms.  He had a study guide to help him prepare for the test.  We competed the first half of the problems which were primarily geared towards polynomial factoring and long division and synthetic division.

Latin Tutoring review by Brett in Chicago, IL
The student and I went over the quantitative and math sections of the test. The student was excited about math. As we went along, the student became more confident.  Going through the mathematics section, he showed a greater deal of proficiency.  At the end of the session, we went back over a few of the concepts that had confused him at first.  After further instruction, he got the idea of the distributive property, and became very excited and proud of himself.  I enjoyed working with him and I think that our sessions, while few in number, will prove to have been helpful as he takes the test.

Latin Tutoring review by Andrew in Chicago, IL
This session, we worked through the rest of the second passage we started last time, which the student is going to be tested on tomorrow. As we translated, we worked on the vocabulary and grammar issues that presented themselves. By knowing the basic outlines of the story, he was able to figure out some of the vocab that he didn't actually know, making good use of context clues. When we finished with the translation, we did a bit of review of some of the case usages they're being tested on this time, before finishing up by reviewing vocabulary with flashcards the student had made.
