Hi There!

My name is Christopher Ostro, and I’m an educator living and working in the Denver-Boulder area last 9 years.

I was born and raised in the metro-Detroit area and attended the University of Michigan on a full-ride scholarship. I received my BA from Michigan in 2010, triple-majoring in Classical Languages, Comparative Literature, and History.

In the summer of 2010 I moved to Boulder to pursue my PhD in Classical Studies.  From day one of my PhD program, I was excited about teaching and it’s always been something I considered more or a privilege than a job.  I’ve enjoyed great reviews and have been given a number of fantastic opportunities.

My passion for teaching eventually led me to leave the PhD program at CU.  I now teach for the Program of Writing and Rhetoric at CU and I love it with all my heart.

And I’ve done my best to expand my experience as an educator. I worked at a national tutoring organization to get more experience with standardized tests, for example. I’ve also started helping younger teachers with their first classes, and working at a few different writing centers to help new students. I’ve even worked at a Denver high school for a year teaching Latin and English!

So now here I am!  I am happily teaching, tutoring, and living in Denver.  If you’d like to work with me, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
