Session Summaries by Latin Tutors

South Gate, CA Latin tutoring
This was another extensive session. The student and I initially worked on finishing up the chapter that included the participles and infinitives before moving onto the next chapter. The next chapter, which was on the Punic Wars, only had one grammatical topic: irregular verbs. We filled out charts for the 7 different verbs and how to recognize them in the different forms. This session was more focused on translating passages. We worked through sight reading so that the literal translation was quicker and easier for comprehension purposes. I also helped her in simplifying the process of translating by identifying the subject, verb, direct object.

The student and I went through a study guide that his teacher had given him to help him prepare for his final. It took a few practice conjugation charts to jog his memory, but I think he felt more comfortable by the end of our session. Throughout our sessions together (I would say at least once each time we meet), he notes that a concept may have been briefly introduced to his class, but then it was never practiced, reviewed, or used in translation. Then, these concepts appear on the study guide, and he doesn't quite know how they work. As he is very bright and seems to pick up these concepts fairly quickly, if I have the time to explain and practice them with him, I'm wondering if perhaps his teacher just skimmed through these things, without allowing time for the students to internalize it. I think he would benefit from reviewing an Intro to Latin text over the summer, if he plans to take Latin next year.

Today, we continued to work on a review of the Seneca the Younger reading the student has been assigned; she still needed a lot of scaffolding to get through it. For grammar review, she hasn't made as much progress as I would like. She can retrieve the relevant endings only after a significant amount of prompting from me, but for the final, she'll need this knowledge to be much more automatic. I'll send an email with specific instructions for work that will hopefully help with "automaticity." We will continue to work on this next session.

The student and I covered subjunctives, how to form them, and independent and dependent uses, especially purpose, result, and fear clauses. She seemed engaged. I encouraged her to work on taking her time to properly parse the verb before translating the rest of the sentence. She can parse correctly, when she takes her time.

We went over verb tenses in English and how they translate into Latin. We also practiced grammatical questions in the format that they will appear on the student's final. I asked him syntax questions and we practiced picking the correct verb forms and noun forms. He needed help with remembering the grammatical terminology, though he was fantastic at the actual grammar. This problem is easy to correct with repetition. For tomorrow, I will prepare a practice test/ review in the format of his final and we will go over it together. We will practice grammatical language and go over anything that he needs to review in more depth.

The student and I started working on the material for his upcoming final today. We started with noun declension, going back over endings and case usages. Then we moved on to adjectives, first, second, and third declensions. After that we moved on to going over the translation and uses of the comparative and superlative adjectives. Finally, we ended the session with possessives and the relative pronoun. We will begin our session on Thursday with the translation of the relative pronoun and move on from there.
