About John

I’d love to help you learn Latin and have fun while doing it. Studying Latin will be useful in all your subjects. I was so lucky to study under one of the world’s best Latin teachers. We had to speak only Latin in class. It wasn’t easy to think up ways to speak about airplanes in Latin, but it was fun!

For several years, I’ve sent out weekly e-mail called “Latin for the Week” to over fifty subscribers with Latin quotes. The English translations far enough below that readers can try out their Latin translation skills. My wife has had me create Harry-Potter like spells into Latin. Over the years I’ve also translated an ancient text, a medical diploma from Hungary, poetry and other writings into English for friends or clients.

Here are my qualifications for Latin tutoring. I studied Latin for four years at Boston College High School, Boston, MA. While studying for the priesthood in a Roman Catholic religious order ,the Discalced Carmelites , I had another four years of Latin Classes. I am the author of Latinitas Memorabilis, a book of quotes into and out of Latin with cartoon drawings (available on Amazon). I have had for many years a passion for Latin and for helping others enjoy learning to use it. I look forward to seeing how I can serve you.
