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.

Helpful Latin class: Cicero's letters

Christopher taught me Latin. Christopher helped me in grammar and also helped me to understand the letters of Cicero, which are all written in Latin. Christopher knows how to explain things in ways that actually help me to comprehend Latin. I had a very pleasant environment with Christopher because he is a very polite and helpful.

Chris R's magic

Chris R has had an astounding effect upon my 15 year old son over the past six months. In addition to making Latin more comprehensible, his tutoring has changed my son's attitude toward studying the language . Formerly, my son drudgingly completed the required work each day. Now he enjoys the challenge of studying Latin (which was the original reason why he decided to take the class). As a result, my son has elected to take a third year of Latin. As a bonus, Chris has also stimulated my son's budding interest in linguistics. Needless to say, we will use Chris's services again next year.

Chirstopher is EXCELLENT

We have used Christopher as a Latin tutor for my daughter entering Boston Latin in the fall to give her a head start. He has been excellent to work with, very flexible and accommodating and most of all a genuinely good educator. He goes at the student's pace making sure they have a good understanding of the concepts before moving on. He also, on his own time, researches and finds worksheets to drill concepts that require a bit more attention. I would highly recommend Christopher.

Very knowledgeable in this field

We reviewed declensions, conjugations, and basic vocabulary. He was very prepared to teach me at any level because he didn't know going into it the exact level that I was at, and neither did I. It is obvious that he had a vast knowledge of Latin and has taught it many times. He is very good, and a nice guy.

Excellent tutor

Christopher taught vocabularies, verbs and constantly teaches techniques to do well. Also gave list of vocabularies to learn. Very patient and extremely responsible and reliable. Thanks

Patient and positive

Christopher was very patient with my shy daughter giving her positive reinforcement to ease her discomfort. It was a very good first experience for her and we have high hopes for what she can achieve with Christopher's help.

Superb Latin tutor

Chris is a true gem. He is sincerely committed to getting the very best out of a student and has the experience and patience necessary to manage the ups and downs of the high school experience. For more than 2 years, we had a very positive experience with Chris including a substantial rise in grades. Chris takes the time to let the parent know how the lesson went, what could be worked on in order to do better, and is extraordinarily supportive of the student. He is encouraging, but rigorous, and at least in our experience, produced results well beyond our expectations. I recommend him without reservation to parents and students looking for Latin tutoring talent.
