About Gray

I am a Massachusetts educator certified in English and Latin, grades 5-12, and a Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude graduate of Boston College, where I double-majored in Classics and English and minored in Education. I have professional experience teaching middle school English and middle school and high School Latin. A graduate of the Wellesley Public Schools system, I also have extensive experience as a private tutor in Wellesley, Weston, and Natick. I work with students in Latin from introductory to AP levels, focusing on grammar, vocabulary, and translation skills. In English, I support students looking to improve their reading comprehension, critical analysis and writing skills; writing sessions often focus on thesis development, argumentative focus, textual support/ analysis, and grammar. It is important to me to identify students' individual areas of difficulty in order to create a plan for improvement; at the same time, I work to nurture students' areas of interest and strength. Kindness and patience are two qualities that define my pedagogical approach, both in the classroom and in one on one tutoring. I enjoy working with students of all levels and abilities, including those who struggle to keep up and those who strive to excel.

Knowledgeable and Helpful — Gray has a wonderful teaching style and my son reacted positively to a 1.5 hour session devoted exclusively to Latin grammar. Gray is clear, precise and understands exactly what pitfalls my son needs to avoid to become a serious and competent Latin student. ...
