Jeffrey Rufo

Education Administrator

The ability to understand and speak French has opened so many doors for me over the years that I can't imagine my life without it.


Jeff has spent fourteen years working in education, as a teacher and as an administrator. He began studying French in 6th grade, falling in love with both the language and the culture at an early age. With a doctorate in comparative literature from The University of Chicago, Jeff has published several academic articles on drama (especially Shakespeare and his French contemporaries). He is delighted to have the chance to finally work and live in Boston, where he was born. Besides reading, Jeff enjoys philosophizing, drinking coffee, playing music on the guitar (folk, blues, and jazz), thinking deeply about chess, and of course being in nature whenever possible.
