You can be assured that all instructors are thoroughly vetted and possess the skills and knowledge necessary to accommodate learners of all skill levels. Whether you're an advanced speaker who wants to solidify their Latin skill set or you're seeking supplemental instruction for your student, studying with a Spokane Latin tutor can help you reach for your language goals. Additionally, all learners will have access to a plethora of academic resources that can add depth and direction to their review.

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

Latin is the precursor of the Romance languages and can be helpful when trying to learn other languages, such as Spanish, Portuguese, or French. While Latin no longer represents the spoken language of a community, it is still commonly used in scientific research, medicine, theology, and the legal profession, among others. Maybe you have a student who is taking Latin and could use some extra support. Perhaps you're a philosophy student looking to expand your grasp of Latin to help bolster your understanding of key philosophical texts. Whatever you and your student's goals are with the language, a Spokane Latin tutor can be there to provide direction and guidance.

Spokane Latin tutors can supplement you or your student's language learning in a variety of impactful ways. Your sessions will always occur in a one-on-one setting. This means that you will always be the sole focus of your instructor. Your instructor can take the time to learn your strengths, goals, and interests to help construct lessons that engage and excite you. If your student is in a Latin class and needs help mastering basic grammar and vocabulary, their instructor can craft lessons that deal exclusively with your student's classroom materials. If you are learning Latin for educational purposes and struggling to read the language, your Spokane Latin tutor can read texts with you and help clarify any misconceptions as they arise. Regardless of your needs, the customized nature of private instruction means that your areas of opportunity can drive the content of your lessons.

Spokane Latin tutors can use their expertise to help learners of all levels navigate the tricky grammatical elements of the language. By crafting lessons to your needs, instructors can break down the complexities of Latin grammar into small, manageable chunks. For instance, in Latin, the endings of words, or inflections, are vital to understanding how words relate to each other and enable us to work out the meaning of a sentence. This can prove challenging for native English speakers because English uses inflected forms in a fairly limited way. Your instructor can provide specific examples and help you work to identify word endings to increase your grammatical comprehension of the language. The personalized nature of Spokane Latin tutoring can help you make more efficient and effective progress towards your language learning goals.

During your sessions, your instructor can use a variety of instructional methods to help you internalize key concepts and ideas. For instance, if your student is an auditory learner, their instructor can read short texts aloud to them and ask them to identify words or inflections to help with their vocabulary and grammatical skills. If you are a visual learner, your instructor can use flashcards or write out notes identifying the different components of a word to help you build up your vocabulary. Your instructor can also provide you with exercises to complete, which can help build up your foundational understanding of the language, from grammar to the written word.

Learning a new language in a traditional classroom or a group setting can be difficult for many because they are unable to receive personalized instruction to guide them through complex concepts. Rather than following a broad course curriculum, you will have the opportunity to work at a pace that is right for you. The only agenda that you or your instructor will follow during your sessions is the one that you set. If you master the grammatical forms of the Latin language faster than you expected, you can quickly move on to the next topic. If you are struggling to understand gendered nouns, your instructor can employ a variety of teaching techniques and styles until they find one that works for you.

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

To accommodate the various demands on your time, we strive to provide you with maximum flexibility. When you decide to work with a private instructor, we take your family's schedule into account in addition to you or your student's learning needs. Our goal is to find an instructor who possesses the skills, knowledge, and availability needed to provide you with a flexible, dynamic learning experience.

For further convenience, we offer both online and in-person instruction. If you choose to meet with your instructor online, your sessions will take place in our Live Learning Platform. When you attend sessions, you will be able to use a video chat feature that allows you to see, hear, and interact with your instructor in real-time. Our Platform also contains a variety of other features, such as a virtual whiteboard, a recording feature so you can review previous sessions, and editable documents that allow you and your instructor to work together during your sessions. If you prefer to meet with an instructor in-person, we can match you with someone in your area who is eager to help you learn. You can choose to meet in a location of your choosing, such as your house, the Spokane Public Library, or a local coffee shop.

If you feel that your needs would be better addressed in a classroom setting, Varsity Tutors also offers online Latin language courses. This option allows you to attend classes in a virtual classroom with an expert instructor and motivated peers eager to learn the language. We offer multiple course sections, meaning that you or your student can enroll in one that matches your schedule.

Session Summaries by Latin Tutors

Spokane, WA Latin tutoring
The student and I started our first session together by talking about why she was interested in taking Latin, what she was learning in her online course, and her concerns about how she was doing. We then delved into the topic that she had been covering in her course: the use of the cases in Latin. She demonstrated to me a clear mastery of the paradigms of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd declension nouns. She was struggling a bit more with the actual functions of the cases, and how to identify different cases in a sentence. To help with this, we worked through a recent quiz that she had performed poorly on. I introduced her to the idea of breaking down and diagramming sentences in Latin, a technique which I believe helps students work their way through complex sentences. At the end of our discussion, which took about an hour, she seemed to have a firmer grasp of the uses of the cases. In the next half an hour of our session, we went over some new material. I wrote out for her paradigms of the 4th and 5th declensions, and we talked about the ideas of a "stem" and a "signature vowel." We also talked about how to use verb and adjective agreement and context clues to help identify the case of a noun when the form is ambiguous (as is often the case for, example, 4th declension neuter nouns). In the final few minutes, she and I talked about what we would cover in the coming weeks, and set up a general schedule for moving through her course. Our goal is to cover an average of 1 unit every 3 weeks. I also gave her the names of some Latin grammar books that are available for free online that she might find useful.

Today, the student and I first focused on gerundives, one of the new grammar forms in her current textbook chapter. She had a good idea of what they are, and we practiced a few in translation, as well as going through how to recognize one. The rest of the time, we spent on verbs; more generally how to recognize an infinitive, what an infinitive is, how to identify subject by verb ending. I think she had a better understanding by the end of the lesson, so we'll keep practicing and reviewing throughout the year.

The student and I reviewed the formation of Latin adverbs in the various declensions, then we translated a few sentences, parsing and explaining every word. Next session, we plan to review adjectives of 2 and 3 terminations, and their differences.

The student and I went through a passage, which she needed to translate for an upcoming quiz. She's getting much more confident and successful at identifying noun cases and verb tenses, as well as translating. Occasionally, she seems to understand the meaning of the sentences but doesn't translate them literally; in these cases, I'd recommend a translation that stays closer to meanings of each Latin word. Overall, she did a good job with a passage that presented some challenges, especially with slightly unusual uses of vocabulary.

We went over present, imperfect, and future tense of the verbs' active and passive conjugations. I showed the student how to remember the ending to help his study. We went over the gender of the words and how to make them agree with the subject's (nominative) singular and plural forms. We then reviewed the declensions. The tutoring went very well, he was very pleased with the outcome. This was a very successful session.

With the vocabulary section of the student's semester exam coming tomorrow, he and I spent most of the time reviewing much of that vocabulary, chapters 13-19. I reminded him to study vocabulary in short stretches of time -- after 10 or 15 minutes, the mind wanders, and it is best to put it away, to return to it later.
