Method for Latin Fluency

Our Method for Latin Fluency, created by our Founder based on decades of experience in Latin-language instruction, grew out of the insight that Latin is basically no different from any other language, and therefore advanced competency in Latin must come from a dual focus on grammar and conversation-based learning. In other words, to learn Latin efficiently and attain true fluency, pupils need to be taught not just to read and translate Latin but to speak it too. For this reason, we have gone out of our way to hire tutors with considerable experience in conversational Latin instruction, and we encourage our tutoring clients to integrate conversation into their total Latin tutoring curriculum. This dual focus is, we believe, why overall our pupils grow into exceptionally accomplished Latinists, scoring extremely well on the National Latin Exam and (even more impressively) achieve real fluency in the Latin language in only 4-6 years!

Latin Language Teacher Resources

In addition to providing students with world-class Latin tutoring, we provide free pedagogical assistance for Latin teachers at the college, high-school, and elementary-school levels in the form of visual Latin vocabulary sheets. These sheets are completely free and downloadable for use in a wide variety of applications, ranging from classroom handouts to posters, and even instructional tools for laptops and/or mobile devices to be used as a companion to teachers’ lessons. You can find them in the Latin Resources Blog section of our website.

The Highest Quality in Latin Tutoring

Every single one of our tutors is an exceptional instructor, making it onto our team only after passing through our rigorous, highly-selective hiring process, which includes a challenging mock tutoring session. Only top applicants end up being hired, and though this selectivity obviously limits the total size of our Latin Tutor Faculty, we feel it's worth it since this way we are certain that every single one of our tutors measures up to the strictest standards for experience, expertise, effectiveness, and affability.

Latin Standardized Tests

Our Carmenta tutors offer preparation for the three major standardized Latin tests:

  • National Latin Exam (NLE) - The best way to measure a student’s Latin skills against other students from around the world, as well as test proficiency, and even win scholarships for college. All Carmenta Latin students are required to take the NLE once a year in either February or March. The appropriate level of the test for each individual student is assessed by the administration.
  • SAT Latin Subject Test - Another great way to test a student’s own Latin skills against others’ from around the globe and measure proficiency. This test is recommended for students with 2-4 years of high school study but can be taken by students of any age. Offered in June and December of every year.
  • AP Latin Exam - This test helps to measure proficiency as well as provide a comparison of students’ skills with their American and international counterparts, and it also aids in gaining college credit. All advanced Carmenta Latin students are encouraged to take the AP Latin Exam, which is offered every June.

Tutor Sign-Up

Because we are committed to the long-term success of every one of our students, we take great care to assign you the tutor right for you and create an appropriate accompanying curriculum plan. There are three stages to our tutor sign-up process:

1) Initial Contact — You first Email or Call us and discuss your tutoring needs with one of our Academic Advisors.

2) Meeting with the Founder — You next meet our Founder over the phone or Skype. He will learn about you and your needs and then advise you on the creation of appropriate curriculum and the ideal tutor assignment.

3) Group Conference / Initial Tutoring Session — Founder, tutor, pupil, and parent meet briefly over Skype. Everyone is introduced, and we make certain all parties are on the same page. Immediately following this conference, tutor and pupil have their first session. Assuming you decide that the tutor is a good fit (which is almost always the case), you and the tutor then work out a session schedule that will work for both of you.

Carmenta Tutors, created in 2016, is a division of the Carmenta Latin School (founded in 2008). Since our tutoring service is clearly different in nature from our multi-student class offerings and is aimed at a different demographic, we have given it its own separate division and website. Information on our group Latin class offerings can be found on the School site.
