About Timothy

Salvete Omnes!

I am available to tutor Latin, Ancient Greek, or other classical subjects (history, literature, mythology, etc.) at all levels to students in the Greater Boston area. In addition to tutoring current Latin students, I am also available to teach private Latin lessons with students who wish to learn the language, but do not have an opportunity to learn it through their school.

I currently teach 7th and 8th grade Latin for Newton Public Schools and Latin Literature at a regional high school. In addition to my work for these districts, I have taught a group of homeschooled students ages 13-15, and an after-school program for 5th graders. Through the course of my teaching, I've used a wide range of textbooks, including Ecce Romani, Jenney's, Latin for Americans, Latin Via Ovid, Cambridge, and Latin for the New Millennium. I've also read Lingua Latina on my own.

I recently graduated from Boston College with a Master's of Arts in Teaching in Latin and Classical Humanities. Prior to this, I received my B.A. in Greek & Latin and Political Science at Tufts University. I have a Massachusetts teaching license in Latin & Classical Humanities. I have studied Latin for 12 years and Ancient Greek for 3, and have read virtually all of the authors that are used in typical high school curricula. I am one of the most fluent Latin speakers in the Boston area, and have studied the language under some of the greatest Latin scholars alive, including the Papal Latinist.

I am available to tutor most nights of the week and weekends.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Classics

I graduated with a B.A. in Greek and Latin from Tufts University in 2012, and an M.A.T. in Latin and Classical Humanities from Boston College in 2013. I have taken almost twice the amount of credits required for the major, and have taken a wide range of courses from literature and philosophy to history and archaeology. In addition, I have an entry in the Dictionary of Byzantine Authors to be published in 2014.

Greek

I graduated with a B.A. in Greek and Latin from Tufts University in 2012, and an M.A.T. in Latin and Classical Humanities at Boston College in 2013. I have taken almost twice the amount of credits required for the major, and have taken a wide range of courses from literature and philosophy to history and archaeology. In addition, I have an entry in the Dictionary of Byzantine Authors to be published in 2014. I have a translation of a treatise of St. John Chrysostom that will also be published in 2014. I have attained the highest level of Greek in my undergraduate courses, and took one Greek course at the graduate level.

Latin

I have studied Latin for 12 years and hold a Massachusetts Initial License in Latin and Classical Humanities. I received my B.A. in Greek & Latin from Tufts University and M.A.T. in Latin & Classical Humanities from Boston College. I am currently a 7th and 8th grade Latin teacher for Newton Public Schools and a Latin III: Latin Literature teacher for Acton-Boxborough Regional High School.
