Italian university teacher gives Latin courses for all levels, only by Skype or Zoom

Ambassador

We host the best tutors. Quality of their profile, experience in their field. Lorenzo will be happy to arrange your first English Literature lesson.

About the lesson

I love Latin and I believe I know how to make you tolerate it, even if you don’t like it!

All jokes aside… if you pick my courses you will be able to translate Latin texts in some months.
Latin isn’t different from any other language, but teachers often treat it as if it were rocket science. It isn’t any harder than French or English and with a little effort you will learn it easily.

You can make it, but you need a method. I’m here to teach you my personal method that has worked for many students! You will learn how to translate while reading, integrating grammar in the translating process.

I will provide all the necessary materials.

About Lorenzo

I offer mainly private Latin lessons, but if needed I can also provide history or philosophy lessons. I’ve been doing this for approximately seven years: first in Italy, then in France, and now online.

After my PhD, I have taught in high school for a year and now I teach Latin and history and Italian at Pisa University.

I’ve been working online for years, thanks to Skype: it is convenient for everybody, especially for who has particular schedule limitations. All you have to do is get back home, turn on your computer and work hard for an hour.

Moreover, online lessons are better than traditional ones from an educational standpoint: we won’t waste time and we will work more intensely… all you have to do now is try your first lesson for free!

  • 01

    Cosa ti ha fatto appassionare a questa lingua? Origini familiari, interesse personale, un insegnante ispirante o magari un grande amore?

    Sono nato e cresciuto in Italia, fra le Alpi e Milano.
    Quanto alla mia passione, studiando al liceo e poi all'università, mi sono sono innamorato della poesia latina, che è capace di toccare la natura profonda dell'animo umano.

  • 02

    Quale personaggio, storico o inventato, secondo te rappresenta in pieno la cultura legata a questa lingua?

    Per l'italiano: Giorgio Armani, genio e stile. Per il latino: Giulio Cesare.

  • 03

    C'è una parola, un'espressione, una tradizione o un'abitudine culturale che ti diverte o ti fa ridere?

    Per l'italiano: un'abitudine molto diffusa in Italia è quella di usare espressioni dialettali nelle conversazioni. Alcuni modi di dire molto volgari e offensivi sono così diffusi che hanno perso il loro significato originario e sono usati ora per esprime affetto e amicizia… 'Ci tua!
    Per il latino: scoprire che gli antichi romani usavano tantissime parolacce. La cosa divertente è che troviamo espressioni estremamente volgari in alcuni dei più importanti classici della letteratura latina.

  • 04

    Perché per te è importante parlare questa lingua?

    È un luogo comune ma è vero: tutti gli stranieri dicono che l'italiano ha un suono molto accattivante e sexy!
    Per il latino: non siamo tenuti a parlare latino, ma ci sono associazioni di latinisti che lo parlano come una lingua viva, cercate i filmati su youtube!

  • 05

    Qual è, secondo te, la caratteristica più ostica che si incontra nell'apprendimento di questa lingua?

    Per l'italiano: dipende tutto dalla lingua madre dello studente. Per i francesi risulta difficile pronunciare correttamente l'italiano, ma hanno meno problemi col vocabolario, perché le due lingue sono lessicalmente simili. Gli anglofoni, invece, hanno bisogno di concentrarsi maggiormente sul lessico e sulla grammatica.
    Per il latino: lo si studia in genere male, come se si dovesse studiare delle formule matematiche e non una lingua come le altre. Il mio scopo è farvi capire che il latino non presenta maggiori difficoltà rispetto a studiare l'inglese o il francese.

  • 06

    Raccontaci un aneddoto divertente o particolare relativo alla tua formazione o ad una esperienza di lezione!

    Per l'italiano: ricordo la mia prima lezione che diedi grazie a Superprof. Ero a Parigi, lo studente abitava in un appartamento al decimo piano con una finestra che aveva la più bella vista sulla Tour Eiffel che avessi mai visto.
    Per il latino: il corso di Lingua latina avanzato è l'unico esame a cui sia mai stato bocciato. Grazie a quella professoressa, ho avuto modo di approfondire la conoscenza di questa magnifica lingua e di prendere poi un bel 30 e lode.

  • 07

    Aiutaci a conoscerti meglio: parlaci delle tue passioni, dei tuoi viaggi, dei tuoi hobby!

    Amo vivere e conoscere posti diversi. Ho vissuto a Roma, Parigi, Milano, in Belgio, a Venezia e ora a Tunisi. È un paradosso, ma non mi piace molto viaggiare e odio gli aeroporti e gli aerei.
    Sono un professore universitario e amo molto il mio lavoro. Seguo anche un seconda attività che riguarda la produzione di cibo e utensili per gatti, che sono una mia grandissima passione.

  • 08

    Cosa ti rende un vero Superprof, oltre alla capacità di parlare ed esprimerti in più lingue?

    La mia curiosità intellettuale e la mia voglia di conoscere persone e culture diverse.
