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.

Great Tutor, Well Versed in Classical Literature

Derek is a nice guy, easy going and approachable. He encourages the student to come up with their own ideas, guiding them as needed but refraining from taking over the assignment. Derek is well versed in classical literature and able to speak Latin which makes him ideally suited for anyone looking for help with humanistic studies and SAT level vocabulary.
