Reviews (1)

I really recommend Silvia as a teacher. She made me feel immediately at ease and had exactly the right blend of encouragement and guidance to make the hour worthwhile and constructive.
Italian is my mother tongue, I love its sound, its grammar structure, the culture it expresses. I hope to pass on to my students my passion and enthusiasm, thanks to the experience I made at university, where I studied ancient Greek and Latin, then working as a teacher in high school, and gaining the DITALS, which is a diploma to teach Italian to foreigners. I have experience with students of different levels and age, and I gear each lesson towards my students' goals and preferences.

That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective as possible.

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.

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.

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.

Theresa
Bijles in Duits (moedertaal)/Engels/Latijn/Wiskunde
Growing up in Germany with a German mother and a Dutch father, I soon became interested in different languages. Therefore I chose for Latin, English and German in my Abitur, which I finished with cum laude. Also mathematics were part of my main subjects, which I always enjoyed doing. After finishing my Abitur in Germany, I came to The Netherlands to study Interior Architecture & Design. I have been tutoring since I was 16 and always been motivated by helping students improve in their school work and hope to be able to help you soon as well!

Guilherme
Latin Language - An introduction to great beginners
Latin is one of the most fascinating, engaging, and also challenging languages of all. Basis of so many western languages, with deeply embedded impact on the English language itself, that are many reasons to dive into Cicero's prose or Vergil's verse. Used up into the 19th in much technical literature, the knowledge of Latin can unlock a truly vast world of knowledge and, of course, beauty from the many works of Latin literature. Apart from that, knowing Latin truly helps to learn the neo-latin languages (Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian); I should know it, as I am a native speaker of Portuguese. In this course, I will show the basics of this fascinating language the only way I know, and the only way I think it actually works, that is, through a careful balance of good old grammar and basic vocabulary.

Mario Edoardo
Latin by an Italian student. toghether we will discover that marvelous ancient world
The offered Latin class is though by a fluently English speaker who studied at the Liceo Classico in Rome, Italy. My results at school were remarkably successful and led me to also participate in national Latin competitions. I will try to let my students join the magnificent intellectual and social world developed during the Roman Empire. In this course, an analysis of Philosophy, History, and Literature will be matched with a deep and well-explained grammatical part. Step-by-step we will explore together a civilization that profoundly shaped our everyday life and current mind-set!
