Latin Class and Western History Tutoring (SAT and Interests)

I am a state certified Latin teacher with experience teaching all levels. My goal is to make Latin, and the doors it opens, available to any learner, at any time.
This class is for anyone interested in exploring the roots of European and western civilization and language. Latin and the world of the Romans serves as a gateway to the worlds of language study, politics, economics, social systems and more. If the only Latin you've ever known is "et cetera," or if you've read the Gallic Wars more than once, I'd love to hear from you.

Latin & Ancient Greek classes by Classical Philologue
Let's start by declensions and so on. We'll discover the verbal tenses and how is a phrase done. You don't know the slight aspects unless have studied how Ancient Greek's verbs work, or the Ancient Indian. So, if we can translate texts (at first easier ones, the the original), we could reach anywhere in the vast world around the Roman Empire. Latin is the basis for the Romance languages. And Greek is more usual between us than you could imagine (Medicine, over all). You could structure your mind as the ancient did! They are the "little box" where you can put in whatever you want. It also provides a manner to live and to work in order to know the essential tasks and the rest.

Serdane
Old language courses for high school students.
My name is Serdane and I offer language courses for students in grades 1 to 4 who would find it difficult to find a way of working that suits them. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! Everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate its level, its strengths, its possible weaknesses or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority is to give the student confidence: Latin and Greek are within everyone's reach when they are well explained! I believe in active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him, so that he can pursue his career independently. Finally, I bring specific help when preparing questions or exams in a more difficult subject. My price includes a complete tutoring (private lessons, the possibility to ask questions outside class hours, writing and correcting questions, etc.).

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.

Tobias
Spanish Tutoring and History Tutoring for ages 12-18
I am offering tutoring in History and looking for tutees from Primary school to upper Secondary school students and also looking for tutees for Spanish at any age range. As bilingual British National who grew up in Madrid in an International British School: King's College Madrid, I have been speaking, listening and writing in Spanish from an early age. I have experience in being able to switch between languages effectively and I find it easy to engage in conversation in both Spanish and English. I have also had previous experience in teaching English to Spanish students for which I believe the skills are transferrable to teaching Spanish to English students. During the sessions, I would help with completing grammar exercises as well as work on conversational topics in order to provide a wider range of vocabulary to help with oral as well as written exams. I believe it is important to set exercises and tests during the sessions so I can figure out the main difficulties that the student has in writing in Spanish in order to tackle these problems and help the student. I am outgoing, patient and eager to help students build up their confidence in being able to comfortably speak a foreign language (Spanish) as well as build on their grammar and knowledge of Spanish culture. As well as this, I have recently graduated from The University of Kent where I obtained a 1st Class Honours in my degree. The degree covered a wide range of IGCSE and A level History topics including International History between World Wars as well as American, Russian, African, Indian and Spanish history during the 20th Century. With this, the sessions will consist of providing greater knowledge to the study of History, not only focusing on learning facts, but mainly the significance behind them in leading to other events and the analytical process comparing and contrasting certain viewpoints in order to provide two sides of an argument. My teaching style, therefore, involves following exam structures and working out the key features of writing history essays, as well as setting writing exercises to prepare for exams with the short time available to write said essays. I understand the difficulties that exist for GCSE and A-Level History students and I believe my experience will help to push students to understand the main points to work on when preparing for an essay or exam.

Anastasia
European History - Tutoring for all ages (beginners and/or advanced learners)
History is far more than memorizing names and dates, and I don't think it should be taught like that either. We work at understanding what happened and why it happened while understanding when it happened. Whether you're preparing for an exam and need structured, results-based teaching, or prefer to have a more casual environment for discussion, I offer an engaging range of lessons focussing around a variety of historical periods.

Ailis
1-1 Latin Tutoring up to GCSE with an experienced DBS-certified tutor
Latin is a very interesting language to learn. It is the basis of most European languages, as well as scientific names. Students who are struggling with this subject would be well suited to my lessons. I break the language down so it's easy to understand, and build up from the basics. I like to go through the language in an organised way, starting with grammar and vocab. I feel this gives students more of a methodical approach to learning and helps build confidence. I like to include Latin literature in my lessons to get a feel for the Roman culture. Once my student's are ready they can attempt translations of well-known poems and books.

Marco
Private tutoring for English, Italian and Latin. Interactive lessons and conversations, preparation for University.
Hey there! My name is Marco, I am a 21 years old university student from Venice, Italy. I love languages and culture, and I think really the best way to learn a language is to immerse yourself in it. This is why in my classes I take great care to ensure that my classes are interactive, so that the students feel engaged and do not get bored. I can help you with all your English needs, reading, speaking and listening. If you want to study at a University in English, I can help you to be prepared by teaching you how to write proper academic papers and avoid the common mistakes non-native speakers make. I also teach Italian and Latin, which I studied extensively in Italy. My teaching style is informal and interactive, as I think the best lesson should feel like a conversation rather than a lecture. I can help you with all your homework needs, and I will add a bit of cultural dimension so you can really feel invested in what you are learning. Do not hesitate to contact me for more information, I am always available and I will respond fast.

Jaye
European History- private lessons in analysis, essay writing and exam prep
I have deeply enjoyed European History high school, where I received top marks, through university to the present, where I still read and learn history on a regular basis. I am familiar not only with the impact of wider trends such as the printing press, reformation, industrialization and colonization across history but also with the specific histories (and personalities that make them) of the UK, France, Germany, Russia and Spain. Since learning the Annales approach to history I have been really keen about learning history from a wide variety of perspectives. In recent years, I have particularly tried to focus on history retold from the perspective of those left out of the traditional view, which is really just anyone who isn't a white, upper-class and male. This broader and more complex view of history leads to a more nuanced understanding of the past, particularly from a social perspective.

Vasko

Brecht
Tutoring in social subjects: history, English and Spanish.
Social subjects make it possible to gain insight into contemporary problems and make communication more efficient and more fun. It is therefore only natural that a certain basis is expected from everyone. If you have trouble with this, or want to go that extra mile, then I would love to help! I myself am a bachelor student in theoretical physics at the University of Maastricht, but I have a very large basis and interest in these subjects. I speak fluent Dutch and English, and my Spanish is also very good because I lived in Ecuador for a year. History is actually my main area of interest, more than physics too. I am therefore very well read in history, and more than that, I am someone who likes to explain the story and the flow in history. This makes tracking and understanding history a lot easier. If there are any questions, please let me know!
