Are you looking for an experienced tutor and mentor to help you through your SAT, ACT, GRE, PSAT, or SSAT preparations? I have years of experience in both teaching and test preparation. My students have said they find me knowledgeable but unintimidating, and that I make complex material clear and easy to understand.
Together, we'll craft an individualized plan to help you achieve the scores you're looking for. We'll look not only at the best strategies and approaches to test-taking in general, but also at the concepts that standardized tests ask you to know thoroughly. A successful test-taker is an expert at both the form of the test and the content tested--we'll take the time to make you an expert at both!
A little about myself: I'm finishing up a PhD in philosophy at Boston College. When I'm not working on my dissertation or tutoring, I love hanging out with my two kids! I've taught my own philosophy courses at BC for three years now, and even received an award for my teaching. I'm looking forward to meeting with you and working with you so you to can get in to the school of your dreams!
I also work with students in many academic subjects. I especially enjoy tutoring in writing, Latin, philosophy, and logic. If you're looking to improve your academic performance or learn something new, I can help!

Vincent helped me in Math, essay writing, and prepared me for the SAT. I've worked with Vincent for almost one year, and within that amount of time, I've gotten to know Vincent very well. He’s very nice, professional, dedicated to his job, patient, responsible teacher with a great sense of humor and above all else he knows what he’s talking about. He didn't miss any one lesson with me and he always was on time, never late. I strongly recommend hiring him for SAT prep. After working with him my SAT score increased for ALMOST A 600-700 Points!!!! While your results may vary on the PSAT and the SAT, I recommend giving Vincent a shot. He won’t let you down.
He's really great at explaining things. My daughter finds the session very useful. He also explains his thought process in eliminating the wrong answers, so my daughter is able to see how she should approach the difficult problems that she's not comfortable with. Two thumbs up!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I love the Latin language! Besides for acing five college-level Latin courses, I work with the language every day, translating medieval Latin texts for my graduate work. Latin isn't easy, but it can be fun and rewarding!
I've taught philosophy courses for three years at Boston College and even received an award for my teaching. I've been studying philosophy for eight years now, and I am almost finished with my doctorate.
