About Vincent

I have been a tutor for almost seven years now. In that time, I have provided individual teaching and tutoring sessions in everything from basic piano and physics to ACT tutoring and pre-calculus to students in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

For the past three years, I have been on staff at Greystone Academy, a cottage school for homeschooled students in Newtown, Pennsylvania, where I have taught logic, debate, physics, chemistry, history through literature, and math tutoring. I specialize mainly in teaching high school students, but I also have experience teaching middle school-aged students. In addition I attended the 2013 Circe Conference in Baltimore, Maryland, aimed at training educators in the classical model.

In my tutoring style, I allow my students the opportunity to correct their own mistakes. Just because I see them working a problem incorrectly does not mean I will immediately interject with what they are doing wrong. I believe in giving students the chance to recognize their own mistakes and correct them. This fosters a habit of paying attention to detail, checking their work, and becoming self-reliant in their study, which is the end goal. I am also conscious to emphasize the positive, affirm correct work, and not just point out where a student has failed or worked a problem incorrectly.

In high school, I completed and excelled in all math fields up through calculus (A in Algebra 2, A in geometry, A in trigonometry, A- in calculus). Overall in all subjects I complied a GPA of 3.92, with a 3.93 in mathematical subjects. My specialties are pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, and geometry.

When I am not tutoring, I enjoy following baseball and am an avid Yankees fan. I was a high school baseball assistant coach from 2010-2014. In addition, I am passionate about writing, reading, and movies. I have self-published a western e-book on Amazon and I am currently working on a young adult fiction series that I hope to get published.

Feel free to reach out to me and see how I might help you! I have worked with both homeschooled and public school students and am available most days with flexible hours. Online or in-person sessions are fine with me and I look forward to working with you soon!

(Please note that, for health reasons, I cannot do in-home lessons if there is a smoker in the household. However, I am more than willing to meet at a library or other nearby public place if this is the case.)

Great teacher and listener

Vince taught my two ninth graders the algebra 2 concepts that their teacher was not covering in class. He took the time to really listen and understand what they were missing and gave them alternate ways to solve problems. He really connected with them and was able to give them the perspective that they needed to succeed in this class and the confidence to tackle others. We would all highly reco
