MY ROLE AS A LATIN TUTOR
I am an extra support to your regular Latin classwork.
Many schools offer extra curricular Latin clinics outside the normal timetable.
However it's often useful to have a few sessions of private tuition especially in exam year.
Private tuition is not a substitute for your learning the prescribed Latin vocabulary for the exam course, and being well read in the relevant aspects of Roman culture and civilisation.
The advantage of having some private tutorials is to enable you to build confidence in language comprehension and to optimise your grasp of the set texts.
TUTORIALS CURRENTLY (APRIL 2020) ONLY ON-LINE
Get to grips with any aspects of Latin you find tricky. For CE it can often be how to answer the comprehension questions with more precision. For scholarship entrance you may want extra help understanding purpose and result clauses and the subjunctive mood, or past participles and the passive voice.
Starter Latinists welcome. I use Cambridge Latin backed up with extra grammar from So You Really Want To Learn Latin. I also run Minimus for those starters on this course who may have lost school lessons.
I am available by email following your tutorial to mark your work, and provide feedback and advice.
