How can a Latin tutor help you?
Latin is often considered to be a dead language. However, it is still very much alive and has a large number of uses, even in today's modern world. Learning Latin may help with decoding new English vocabulary, because the two languages share many prefixes, suffixes, and word roots. The language may also help you learn additional languages later, as the Romance languages evolved from Latin. Additionally, it allows you to learn about distant history right from the source by allowing you to read and translate original Latin texts.
Unfortunately, many students find Latin to be exceedingly difficult. Sometimes it seems more like a puzzle than a language to English speakers, because word order hardly matters less than in other languages as long as you include the right endings. Because of this, there are several dozen charts of word endings to be memorized and irregular words that don't fit any of the common patterns. This heavy memorization and dissimilar grammar leaves students frustrated and often unmotivated, making learning difficult.
