About the :

Tom Cox


Born and raised in Southern California, Tom Cox attended Hillsdale College in Michigan. After majoring in Latin and Greek, he went on an 18,000-mile road-trip exploring America and, while touring the country with his barbershop quartet, was offered this job at The Heights. He lives in Northern Virginia with his wife, Nicole, and five children. In the summer of 2019, he completed a Master's Degree in Liberal Arts at St. John's College in Annapolis. The experience of being a Johnnie helped sharpen his pedagogy while expanding the tools he uses in the classroom, from seminars to oral exams. He blogs on all topics educational at his personal blog grammaticus.co. When he isn’t speaking or reading Greek and Latin, he enjoys reading, hiking, singing, and spending time with family and friends.
