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.

Contact Varsity Tutors if you need a Los Angeles Latin tutor who can help you or your student have a more convenient way of learning the language. We recognize that working professionals and students alike have busy schedules, and traditional ways of learning a language might not be the most attractive option. With Los Angeles Latin tutoring, you can pursue your Lantin studies even while juggling work, school, and other personal obligations.

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

Modern Romance languages like Spanish, Italian, and French came from Latin. English speakers can also have an easier time learning Latin since many English words originated from it. However, it can still be challenging to learn since there are peculiarities about the language that English speakers might not be able to immediately grasp.

For example, in English, we use the SVO or Subject + Verb + Object word order (Ex. The man bites the dog). But Latin can use different word orders like SOV, OVS, etc. Latin Learners must carefully examine the end of words in order to understand the meaning of a sentence. Studying with Los Angeles Latin tutors can help you have a deeper understanding of these sentence patterns and other aspects of the language in immersive, one-on-one sessions. In your lessons, you'll receive 100% of the attention of your teacher, so you can ask questions and practice what you've learned while getting instant feedback. This immediate response and personalized attention are hard to match in a classroom set-up.

You'll also be able to learn Latin following a customized study plan when you study through Los Angeles Latin tutoring. Traditional courses must follow a strict curriculum and the instructor must also make sure to maintain a pace that can cover the topics that need to be covered for a particular session. If you feel you need to spend more time and need extra help on certain Latin topics like gendered nouns, inflections, and adjective-noun agreement, you can do that during your one-on-one private lessons. Your instructor can assess your current level of knowledge during the first few meetings and design a customized study plan based on your learning needs. You can skip topics you already know and dedicate your lesson time to the ones that you still need to work on.

It can also be easier to learn new topics when you study with your Los Angeles Latin tutor. That's because your teacher can determine your strengths, weaknesses, and unique learning style and then adjust his or her teaching methods accordingly. Some students learn a language faster if they hear a word or expression several times rather than reading it on a book or text material. Others might prefer to look at a vocabulary list and write sentences in order to remember new words they've learned. You and your instructor can work on a variety of exercises that leverage your natural learning style. This can make studying Latin more fun, interesting, and effective.

Aside from working with you on grammar and vocabulary, Los Angeles Latin tutors can also help you speak Latin more fluently. During your private lessons, you can have more time to practice your speaking skills, learn common expressions, and pick up the nuances of the language while listening to a fluent speaker. This can be hard to experience in a classroom where you need to keep up with the pace of the lessons and compete for time with other students.

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

If you're worried about how you can fit your private language lessons into your busy schedule, then you'll be glad to know that we can find you a teacher who is not only qualified and experienced in teaching Latin but also available to meet you on your requested schedule. With this flexibility, you or your student can now learn Latin more conveniently.

The Los Angeles Latin tutoring is designed as something you can attend either online or in person. For online lessons, you can choose which time you want to study and where you want to set-up your study area. As long as you have access to a reliable internet connection, you can attend your lessons. You'll meet your teacher on our proprietary Live Learning Platform where you'll communicate using video chat. There is a virtual whiteboard that your teacher can use when writing important points or reminders about the Latin language such as pronunciation, adjective agreement with a noun's gender and number, and other topics like common phrases or the history of Latin. The platform also lets you watch recordings of your previous lessons, which is a very useful feature if you want to review a word's pronunciation or any other topic you discussed with your teacher. Studying online makes it possible for you to gain the language skills you want without leaving your home or disrupting your daily routine.

For in-person lessons, you can also choose what time you want to study and where you want your teacher to meet you. It can be at your home, office, a café in your area, or at public libraries such as the West Hollywood Library or the Central Library.

You should also know that you can combine private instruction with online courses if you would like to experience the unique benefits of both types of instruction. We offer Latin courses with a wide range of course times within a given day. You can study in the morning, afternoon, or evening together with other enthusiastic Latin learners. The courses have new sections that start on a rolling monthly basis, so you can easily enroll in the section and course time you prefer.

Latin Tutoring review by Andrew in Los Angeles, CA
Today, I mostly worked with the student on learning the forms of hic and ille for her quiz tomorrow. She worked on memorizing the charts for each of the pronouns, and then I produced some forms of various third declension nouns for her to pair with the proper forms of hic and ille, as she will be asked to do on the quiz tomorrow. It took some time for her to get all the forms down, though she generally got to the right answer after a lot of thinking. After we'd spent a while on this, we did some more practice with translation, as she tries to assimilate some of the advice I've been giving her on analyzing sentences before translating, and looking for the structure of and relationship between sentences.

Latin Tutoring review by Bradford in Los Angeles, CA
Reviewed topics covered in previous sessions for the most part due to the 2 week gap between meetings - these included basic noun declensions and present tense verb conjugations, as well as prepositions and adjectives; added 3rd declension adjectives and constructed small sentences to practice with these forms.

Latin Tutoring review by James in Los Angeles, CA
The student and I reviewed chosen verbs representing four conjugations, and chosen nouns representing five declensions, as assigned. The student showed a good command of most conjugations, and of the first declension noun "puella," which he was able to decline correctly. We reviewed the forms of the second, third, fourth, and fifth declensions (the nouns representing these declensions: puer, miles, fructus, and res). The tutor suggested different methods for remembering the forms, including recitation. Then, finally, we translated and analyzed a basic sentence. He has two or three more sentences to translate/analyze, providing the necessary vocabulary. We discussed how a thorough knowledge of forms (declensions, conjugations) facilitates translating and understanding Latin syntax.

Latin Tutoring review by Ralston in Los Angeles, CA
Reviewed some vocabulary from earlier chapters, reviewed case endings, and some grammar (ablative absolutes, participles, and infinitives). The student needs to be practicing everyday and must focus a bit more on vocabulary as well as grammar.

Latin Tutoring review by Stephen in Los Angeles, CA
We started off the first session by assessing the material that the student already knew. Once I knew that she had been working on the first declension and first conjugation for verbs I took a few practice sentences from a book that I had brought and we delved into the grammar for each word to produce a faithful translation. The three main focuses were: pronunciation, grammar, and translation of the text. The student made good progress in understanding of the first declension and the first conjugation

Latin Tutoring review by Christopher in Los Angeles, CA
As this was our first session back, I had planned to take things slow to focus on re-establishing my rapport with the student, but he was very eager to work with me again so that proved unnecessary. He has a quiz on Wednesday covering material from unit 8 in his class (vocabulary and use of the ablative case), so we focused on his study materials to prep for it. He worked through vocab and grammar reviews with no problems and I anticipate that he'll ace his quiz this week. I left him a few sentences to translate which should also help reinforce uses of the ablative for the quiz.
