About Vincent

Hello, prospective students! I am a recently graduated student from the State University of Rutgers where I majored in historical studies. Throughout my term in college I learned a great deal of knowledge pertaining to a wide variety of historical subjects. It was an interesting ride to where I am now. After graduating high school, I was unsure what I wanted to do with myself in terms of a career. It was community college where I discovered my love of historical studies and took my passion to Rutgers where I gained a wide perspective on the field and was able to significantly sharpen my writing skills in the process. My ambition is to get into graduate school and pursue my interest in a particular area of concentration. In the meantime, I wish to help grade school students expand on their knowledge of history, whether it be related to the United States, Europe, or the world in general, and make them an expert in writing rock solid essays in any subject in the process. I am a firm believer that gaining perspective in a particular historical subject goes far beyond rote memorization of events and dates, but I am also aware that grade schools tend to focus heavily on such criteria for grading exams. I customize lessons to focus on the students' specific needs to build on their strengths and prepare them for simple memorization as well as gaining a deeper understanding of the subject matter. A detailed understanding must be acquired through a garnered interest in the subject, which is what I strive to accomplish with students. I guarantee my students will become interested in the subject matter, learn how to extract important information from large amounts of reading, and write stellar essays in the process. Take it from someone who was one of the most stubborn grade school students when it came to studying history, apply yourself and you can accomplish anything! Hello, prospective students!

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.

Very good at teaching! — Very good about working with my daughter about how to actually write an essay and study rather than only just working with her to get it done. ...
