Hello, my name is Vince. I've been working as an instructor/tutor for more than 25 years. The students I have worked with have ranged from K through grade 12, as well as adult students/adult education. I have tutored in various towns in the area, local private schools, and I have also worked as a private instructor.

I believe that it's important to make each student feel relaxed but also fully engaged in the learning process. I monitor a students progress/understanding of the material presented by continuously asking material-related questions during the lesson. By using this method I've observed this helps the student be more engaged and also aware of their own progress. It's equally important to make each student feel comfortable/at ease when working with me. My many years experience in this field has given me an awareness of student's learning style and general rate of retention of material. This is critical if the student is to receive maximum benefit from the tutorial.

Love lessons with Vince

He is very patient with our 8 years old. Knows well how to keep kids engaged. Our son is learning a lot from him. We have online Spanish teacher. Online piano teacher. Online chess teachers. So we’ve been through quite a few teachers. Would highly recommend Vince.

Great instructor

Vince has been teaching my two teenagers guitar, remotely, as we are located overseas. They are both beginners, and really enjoy the lessons and look forward to them, they excelled in their guitar skills quickly. Vince even takes initiative to schedule lessons regularly, is always very punctual, patient, and makes the lessons fun for them - discusses r’n’r, guitar models, appreciation of good music. My son can’t wait to show Vince his new electric guitar we got yesterday, during their next class!

I liked Vince that he’s always available. He responds right away to messages. He gives tips and sheets for kids to use after the lesson. He was flexible with the schedule. We’re looking forward to future lessons.
