I was a Latin major in college and received my B.A. in Latin, but I made a detour and was an attorney for 35 years. For the past 5 years I have taught Latin at the junior high school, high school, and university levels. I have taught all-boy classes, all-girl classes and mixed. I have been an individual tutor in Latin and English.
I say to all of my students: You cannot convince me that you are not smart enough to learn Latin. Everyone can (think of all those gladiators!) You just need the right teacher.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have a B.A. in Latin, which included over 3 years of classes in Greek; Greek and Latin literatures (such as epic and tragedy) in translation; mythology and religions; history; archaeology, art, and philosophy.
All of these topics are included when I teach Latin.
Latin (and its stories) are the basis of Western civilization. Latin is not dead; in fact, we read, speak and write it every single day--most people don't realize this, which is why they need a teacher.
A good teacher will help you see what is right before your eyes.
And anyway, the Latin (and Greek) stories, history and mythology are the greatest stories that ever existed!
A broad and deep knowledge of literature is the foundation of shared cultural literacy. Not only is it essential for the pure pleasure and edification of the reader, it is a criterion by which a person is evaluated by peers in a professional setting.
The person who has the best control of vocabulary controls the outcome of any discussion. The very best way for a speaker of English to obtain this knowledge (rather than randomly memorizing lists of English words) is to study Latin.
The perfect grasp of this subject is essential to the practice of law, or, indeed, to any area of life. To communicate, and to do it well, is the hallmark that makes us human.
