About Christopher

I have taught Latin at the British School of Boston, the Uphams Corner Charter School, the MIT AP preparation program and the Boston and Cambridge Centers for Adult Education. I have over twelve years' experience tutoring Latin and Greek and have substituted in the Cambridge Public Schools at all levels and subjects for seventeen years. I received my Bachelors from Harvard University in the History of Science Department, where I specialized in the history of logic in Greece, India and China. I think that it is very important for a student to know why an adult would study Latin, so I try to give every student an idea of the lasting sense of value that can be gained from this subject.
