About Vince

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.

Approved subjects

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.

ADD/ADHD

I was a certified special education teacher in the state of Connecticut. After obtaining my certification I was employed at a private school for special education/learning disabled students (grades K-12). I instructed and tutored many students diagnosed with ADD/ADHD during my six years at this school.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a certified elementary education instructor (elementary through grade 12). I was also employed at a local private school where I taught and evaluated elementary level students. The classes I taught included math, social studies, government/civics and physical education.

Elementary Math

I am a former elementary level instructor. I instructed elementary students as well as junior high/high school level students in math, social studies, history and reading. Currently I am employed as a GED math tutor for the city of New Haven.

Geometry

I have previously worked with GED students who were trying to complete their GED testing. I was employed as an ABE/GED tutor/instructor for Wallingford Adult Education and New Haven Adult Education. The areas I have instructed include basic math, word problems, algebra I and geometry.

Guitar

I began my musical training by taking performance/theory classes in high school and college. This training was supplemented by taking private lessons from a professional at a local music store. After college I occasionally gave private bass guitar/guitar lessons to students. I have been playing professionally with local bands for 30+ years.

Prealgebra

I was a certified teacher (level 1-12) and and I have taught at a private special ed school and local public schools. Currently I am a GED math tutor for the city of New Haven (adult education).

Social Studies

I was certified in social studies/history and I taught these (and related) subjects at a private school for six years. During my time there I planned all coursework, created/graded projects for the students and created/graded quizzes and tests. I also participated in the Newspaper in Education (NIE) program as a representative for the school. Aside from my work with the school I have also worked privately as a social studies/history tutor and I instructed adult students in the GED program.
