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.

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.

Claudia
Italian Language and Culture, Mathematics, Latin
I am an Italian girl full of energy and passion for teaching. I propose courses of Italian, Mathematics and Latin. In addition to solid knowledge in these subjects I have an effective and personalized teaching method thanks to a long experience. I have indeed given private lessons in all subjects for 8 years to children and adolescents (7-19 years), each time with mutual satisfaction and expected results. My goal is to simplify the difficult points of the program by having an approach that aims to give the student the tools to be autonomous in the subject.

I am a student in theater and performance, holder of a Bachelor in Human and Social Sciences obtained at UCL-Mons (former FUCaM), graduate of Saint-Michel de Gosselies College (Latin-Math8 option). I have also perfected my practice of languages, especially Latin, during my few trips abroad. In particular, I participated in a one-year Erasmus university exchange in Italy and worked for two years in Portugal, where I also gave French and Latin lessons.

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.

John
Latin - learn how to read and understand one of Europe's most important languages
Latin was and remains one of the most historically important languages in Europe. This class will teach you the fundamentals of an ancient and difficult tongue. Classes are flexible depending on the needs and availability of the students. While it may be a challenge, it's also highly rewarding as you can gain a sense of connection to the world with a language with so much history and influence.

Silvia
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.

Hector
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.

Emilce
Linguistics, Spanish, French, English (IELTS) Latin (Common Entrance)
You will be prepared for public exams (A levels, GCSE, American SATS, Common Entrance) in French, Spanish, Linguistics (English) and Latin (up to Common Entrance) to a high standard. For those not taking exams, you will be taught via grammar and reading, which assures quick progression. You are welcome to bring your own material to explore with the tutor or your school prep. I do not write essays for students but provide a high degree of research to allow you to shine in your project or chosen module.

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!
