About Peter


Bio

Most people don't notice it, but the world we live in is still very much a Greek and Roman world. Those two ancient languages are the best way to begin seeing how much we have inherited from that classical culture. They're hard, it's true; but I can help you do very well and enjoy it too! I'm a former Program Director for Classics at Boston Latin School (1999 to 2011) and I have a great deal of experience teaching at the collegiate level as well.

Greek,

Greek

I hold a Ph.D. in Classics, which includes mastery of both ancient Greek and Latin. While Latin is much more frequently taught and learned in schools, ancient Greek is not. But interest in ancient Greek is growing, and I am ready to help you with tutoring in this wonderful subject. I have a great deal of experience teaching Greek, both classical prose and archaic/epic poetry. I have taught Herodotus, Xenophon, Attic orators, Aristophanes, Plato, Hesiod, and Homer.
Latin

Latin

I have extensive and successful experience as a teacher and tutor at both the college and high school level. I was for many years the Program Director for Classics at Boston Latin School. I am very familiar with all major textbooks and curricula. I strive to meet all my students' individual and personal needs and goals.

Knowledgeable and Great Communicator

Our lesson with Peter was very specific and timely. He was clear and concise in his communication and helped my daughter with her Latin project. It was a pleasure to work with Peter!

Cindy, 1 lesson with Peter

Latin Tutor for Junior in HS

Peter was a great tutor for our son who is a junior in HS. He was excellent in communicating to set up the tutoring session, and arrived right on time. He has a soft spoken and supportive manner that worked well to help our son with his particular circumstances. I'd highly recommend him. Thanks Peter!

Karen, 1 lesson with Peter

My son said he learned more in 1 hour than in years at school

We hired Peter C. to tutor our son in Latin. He was patient, explained things well, and gave our son a strategy to tackle translation. He also gave advice on study skills. I think it is likely that we will continue to engage Peter C.

Sung-Yun, 2 lessons with Peter

Knows how to teach a struggling student.

I'll quote my daughter, "he's the best tutor I've ever had." Due to scheduling conflicts she has worked with several tutors and although she has connected with them in terms of personality, the skills she learned in one lesson with Peter is by far the best help she has received. Peter is also reliable. Lot of tutors commit then cancel or modify the meeting at the last minute. We scheduled our session a few weeks ago and Peter showed up as scheduled. Looking forward to more lessons.

Excellent Latin Tutor

My son learned a lot from Peter in the first session, and I feel that Peter has him on track to do much better at Latin this year. He gave my son good tips and homework assignment. My son left feeling more confident in his abilities to continue learning Latin

Christine, 4 lessons with Peter

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Peter is a fantastic tutor! My son was a struggling latin IV student. Peter was able to break down the material in manageable parts and help him realize the areas of weakness and strength. My son's goal was to get to the B range for a grade and he did! For the two semesters Peter was his tutor he was able to maintain grades in the B range! With his help he was able to feel more confident. We would highly recommend Peter for any level of Latin!

Great tutor.

Peter worked my grade 7 BLS student. He was very helpful and was very familiar with exactly what my son was learning and exactly how to teach it so he understood quickly. He has a flexible schedule and is willing to fit you in wherever he can to accommodate the student.

Stephanie, 5 lessons with Peter

Helpful

Peter helped me in Latin grammar as well as to develop my understanding of Latin poetry. Peter taught me in a gentle patient manner. I recommend him to anybody who needs academic help.

Maria Louisa, 4 lessons with Peter

Very kind and patient

My daughter needed help after missing some Latin classes at school. He figured out how to engage my daughter and taught her some new strategies to help her do translation. We will definitely continue to use Peter when needed!

Stacey, 4 lessons with Peter

Excellent tutor provides excellent results

Peter is awesome. My son,had been struggling on quizzes and tests in his Latin Honors class at the beginning of the semester. After a couple of lessons, I already started to see big improvements in his grades. I'm happy to report that my son's final grade in this class for the semester is an A. :-) I highly recommend Peter.
