About Vincent

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!

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.


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 am a PhD candidate in philosophy at Boston College, and I have completed logic classes at both the undergraduate and graduate levels,receiving an A in each.


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.
