About Derek

I am a doctoral candidate in Classics & Ancient History from the University of California. I did my M.A. in Classics at Tufts, and my B.A. in Classical Languages & Civilization at Boston University. I enjoyed taking Latin and Greek in high school. I competed in Latin at the national level, and I was President of the Classics Association at Boston University. I loved living in the Classics House at Boston University, a lovely brownstone along the Charles River where In lived with archaeology and art history majors.

I have tutored and taught Latin and Greek to students of all ages, from junior high to college age, as well as retired seniors. I am a doctoral candidate in Classics & Ancient History. I have over 10 years' experience in this field.

Latin has been proven to help students improve their SAT Verbal, Reading, and Writing scores. I did very well myself in this area, and helped tutor students who were the first in their family to attend college.

Patient and kind

Derek did a great job going over the basic Latin skills that my daughter has been really struggling with. He was very patient, and she was able to get quite a bit of knowledge out of just one meeting.
