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.

My family is learning quickly under Vince. He’s so patient with us. We’ve discovered that the more and more we meet with Vince, we’ve learned more than what we thought given our lessons. It’s great! Thanks Vince!
