About Vincent

I am an English graduate from Siena College, currently living in Briarwood, NY. I have a passion for teaching young people, especially when it comes to Latin. I have tutored quite a few students from Kellenberg Memorial as well as Chaminade High School, and all of those students have come to improve their grades at least 5-10 points, and in some cases, much more. I know my methods work, and I want to help you improve your grades as well.

I am not as biased as some other tutors may be, because I do not have the traditional teaching background. I feel that this benefits me. I take pride in my work with young people, but I am able to hold the line between friend and mentor. I understand the logistics of growing up and needing a tutor, but also not wanting to lose time with my friends or activities along the way. I can be accommodating as possible within reason. Let me make you my next successful Latin student!

I can relate to younger students very well. I am also able to navigate the similarities between Latin and English when it comes to sentence structure, and I believe that is what helps the students learn. Also, since most Latin textbooks that I have seen are either translating famous works or narrating fictional stories from ancient Rome, my strong knowledge of ancient Roman history also comes in handy.

I have a strong command of the English language with regards to sentence structure, parallel form, and other basic constructs. I also have a good eye for editing.

I have tutored three students previously who all attended Chaminade High School. I was able to improve the grades of all three of those students in Latin. I know that my methods work, and I understand that most people do not take Latin to speak it, but to improve their chances of doing well on the Verbal section of the SAT. I can help you do that, while also spicing things up to keep the material interesting.
