    Living Latin through Comprehensible Input (Contemporary and Medieval Latin)

    You will learn Latin the way it was meant to be learned - through conversation! Medieval scholars and contemporary language researchers alike advocate the use of dialogues and comprehensible input for language acquisition, and it most certainly works! As opposed to the "memorise grammar rules and then babble them in front of the class" approach that was demonstrated by the infamous "Romanēs eunt domus" scene from Monty Python's "The Life of Brian", you will learn to feel the grammar, so that you will be able to use the different cases of Latin without even thinking about it, just like a native speaker!
    For this class we will be using the following books, depending on the learner's level:
    Hans Øreberg's "Lingua Latīna per sē Illustrāta"
    "Corderiī Colloquia"
    Erasmus Rask's "Colloquia Familiaria"
    John C. Traupman Conversational Latin for Oral Proficiency
    I will be the collocutor and I will answer the learner's questions and explain certain oddities solely in Latin (I will use a second language only when the situation calls for it)
    We will also engage in free-form conversations, discussions of the dialogues, of our life experiences etc so that the learner can apply what they learn to real-life situations and expand their vocabulary

    About Me

    I am a polymath, I am majoring in chemistry but I am also interested in theoretical physics, sustainable development, permaculture & regenerative agriculture, music, video games as narratives, and linguistics.
    I am also a polyglot, I have studied over 25 languages, the ones that I am most comfortable speaking are English, German, French, Polish and Danish.
    I believe that anyone is capable of learning vast amounts of information, given the right approach. I strive to find the right approach to my students and explain abstract ideas in terms that anyone can understand.
    I like to combine knowledge from different, seemingly disparate fields and find analogies and parallels between them, and I hope to show my students the beauty of these parallels that tie together so many different areas of learning.

    Education

    Moscow State University, Department of Chemistry (6-year Chemistry major, specialising in radiochemistry, my thesis looks at the potential uses of radiation to pre-treat lignin for biorefinery uses)

    Experience / Qualifications

    I have been teaching physical chemistry to advanced pupils for 3 years, and 5 of my pupils have won the Russian Chemical Olympiad in 2021 and 2022, amongst other regional Olympiads.
    You will learn the most important theoretical aspects of physical chemistry necessary for solving problems at National and International Chemical Olympiads and put them to use in a myriad of problems from previous Olympiads. We will walk through the solutions for problems from the Olympiads of different countries: Canada, Germany, France, Russia, Poland, and others. All problems will be translated into English, so you will be able to access material that your peers can't. Homework will include solving other problems from past Olympiads and doing simpler practice problems. Additionally, we will look at the practical applications of the theories and what philosophical implications they might have. Key manuals for learning the syllabus: Atkins & de Paula Elements of Physical Chemistry P. Monk Physical Chemistry Eremin V.V. Theoretical and Mathematical Chemistry Syllabus: - Phenomenological Thermodynamics - Statistical Mechanics - Electrochemistry - Phenomenological Kinetics - Theoretical Kinetics - Crystallography - Phase Diagrams - Quantum Mechanics - Chemical Bonding (VB, MO, Hückel theory) - Spectroscopy (UV-Vis, IR, NMR) - Radiation & Radiochemistry - Biochemistry - Polymer Chemistry - Colloidal Chemistry - Nanochemistry
    You will learn the syllabus necessary to pass A-levels, GCSE's, and after that we will walk through past exam papers together. Your homework will include solving similar problems and practice problems on your own, the solutions will be reviewed at the start of each subsequent lesson.

    Private lessons / Small group lessons of Latin
    This course aims to help a student (or students) to improve in Latin, whether for the translation of texts, grammar, culture, etymology,... I offer Latin lessons for all students up to sixth grade. I take care to adapt to the needs of the student, after a first contact. I am currently doing a didactic master's degree in ancient and modern languages and letters (Latin-French) at UCLouvain in order to become a teacher. So I already have some experience with my internships and the private lessons that I have already given. I make myself as available as possible and am always ready to answer questions!

    Laetitia
    Latin lessons for all levels (beginners, intermediates, advanced, higher education students)-ADULTS
    Associate professor, Doctor of Letters (Paris IV Sorbonne), teaches Latin at all levels. This course is aimed at anyone wishing to learn or relearn the Latin language, progressively access literature, history, philosophy, ancient sciences, and approach Latin culture. It is also intended for any pupil or student wishing for support in this subject. Learning the Latin language presupposes a few solid bases of French grammar that we review of course if necessary, before installing Latin grammatical knowledge. Learning Latin develops the rigor and sense of translation.

    Justyna
    Learn Latin for school / university / exam with FUN and passion
    I studied Latin for 6 years (high school and university) and read the works of (among others) : -Ovidius -Virgil -Horace -Civero -Catullus I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to sit an exam, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I can prepare you for exams at school / university. - I can help you with assignments / HW. - I can help you with translations / commentaries / grammar / syntax.

    Carlotta
    Latin tutoring for secondary students (Dutch / Latin / German / English)
    Salvē, my name is Carlotta and I have 5 years of experience in tutoring. These now take place in Leuven, where I live in a room, as well as in Maldegem, where I come from. Since April 2022, I have been taking courses in Latin language acquisition at the Schola Latīna, an Italian private school that uses the comprehensible input (CI) method. This means that all classes are taught exclusively in the target language, allowing me to not only translate Latin, but also speak and write Latin. Since no Flemish school expects active language skills, I will of course not do this during the lessons ;) In practice the same problems always return: difficulties with translation, difficulties with memorization of sequences and vocabulary, lack of motivation or fun. When such a fantastic profession is experienced as difficult, it is only logical that motivation also drops. Whatever the problem, Latin itself is a perfectly feasible subject. I also tutored mathematics and noticed that students only have fun when they are no longer struggling, which is what we are working towards :) My goal is to be less needed as quickly as possible by learning and practicing strategies. When you contact us, please state the year the student is in. I provide extra customized material! Cūrā ut valeās, Carlotta

    Private lessons in French - Latin - History - Methodology - English
    Hello, I am an experienced French teacher in upper secondary. I am used to helping and supporting students or adults in difficulty. Moreover, I graduated from a master's degree in French and Romance Languages and Letters at the Free University of Brussels and holder of an AESS aggregation in French as a mother tongue. I offer a French course with a particular and personalized follow-up. Indeed, the course will adapt to the learner's requests by identifying his gaps in the chosen subject and by creating a learning path adapted to his needs. The course can either respond to a specific request on a subject or a specific objective to be achieved, or aim to improve the overall level of French, both in terms of reading comprehension, oral comprehension, written expression or oral expression. The follow-up can also offer a course aimed at developing general culture (whether literary or artistic). I can also help you with basic mathematics, English, Latin, writing a CV or a cover letter, writing a job, advanced use of Word, Powerpoint, Scribus or Gimp software. Finally, I can offer you research advice or general methodology. Appointments can be one-off or structured as a constant follow-up for a given period. I remain at your disposal for any possible question,

    Cogito ergo sum. La bellezza della lingua e letteratura latina
    Nel latino risiedono le radici non solo delle lingue romanze, ma anche della cultura europea. Imparare questa lingua e la sua letteratura può essere una sfida estremamente arricchente ed entusiasmante. Le mie lezioni mirano ad offrire gli strumenti per tradurre e apprezzare al meglio i testi latini, sottolineando come parole e strutture latine sono tutt'ora vive nelle lingue moderne.
