I have a Ph.D. in Mol. Biol./Mol.Gen. I am a University Professor with extensive teaching experience at all levels. I have taught for many years various disciplines of natural sciences, and served as adviser, mentor, and tutor of students and postdocts, as well as Program Director of Graduate Studies. I relate well to learners of different ages and multicultural backgrounds. I have taught and lectured in three languages on a broad range of biological topics to diverse audiences. I attribute an extraordinary formative power to the teaching of biology. A biological mentality makes one appreciate, relish and protect diversity, and is averse to ranking differences in terms of superiority or inferiority.

Music

General Music

General Music

I'm an expert in classical music, middle ages to contemporary. I specialize in Beethoven and Mozart. I studied and taught music analysis and music appreciation for over 20 years. I love to do “close-reading” of major compositions, with or without score, depending on the pupil’s technical knowledge. I have done extensive cycles with educated but musically naive individuals with highly rewarding results. I have given monographic courses on Beethoven piano sonatas, Diabelli Variations and last quartets; on Mozart Da Ponte operas, string quintets, and the mature string quartets. In the field of opera I have offered detailed analysis of the Ring, Tristan, and Parsifal; Verdi’s work from Luisa Miller to Falstaff and the Requiem; Rossini’s opera seria. I have also run special cycles on madrigals and motets (with scores), and romantic lieder, especially on texts set to music by different composers. I have a large database of scores and recorded music, which I share with the pupils.

Expert & Friendly Tutor

I really enjoyed my Italian lesson with Vincenzo. He is an expert teacher with a thorough understanding of the Italian language, grammar, and pedagogy. On top of that, he's a friendly, patient, and kind man. I'd highly recommend Vincenzo to anyone looking to improve their Italian language skills.

Dusty, 3 lessons with Vincenzo

Great teacher

Vincenzo is an extremely patient and encouraging teacher. He brings the language to life in a way that makes it easier and faster to learn. I couldn't recommend Vincenzo highly enough. He is a great teacher and provides enjoyable lessons

Josephine, 27 lessons with Vincenzo

Very pedagogical, knows material well

Vincenzo clearly knows molecular biology very well, and was able to walk my daughter through the details and experiments of DNA replication without fault. He was very patient and accurately corrected my daughter when she made mistakes. My daughter was able to make new connections, understand biology at a deeper level, and feel more confident in her knowledge with Vincenzo's help.

Clare, 8 lessons with Vincenzo

Outstanding educator.

I've had a number of excellent tutors in Italian, but none so rare as Vincenzo, an educator deeply versed in both English and Italian, which is absolutely essential. He also possesses a cultural literacy found in very few. Each lesson turns out to be more stimulating, instructive, and informative than the last. It's no exaggeration to say that I'm progressing at an accelerated rate as never before. In addition, he is always fully prepared, punctual, and as enthusiastic as I am about the material. I only wish our paths had crossed sooner. I would recommend him to any student of the Italian language at any level.

Don, 4 lessons with Vincenzo

Passionate, brilliant, and generous

I can't say enough wonderful things about Vincenzo. He and I worked on analyzing classical music and I have learned a tremendous amount from him. His knowledge of music is deep and passionate. He is extremely generous with his time. In our first meeting he gave me music to listen to and copies of the score so I could read along while I listened. My ability to enjoy and appreciate all the details of the music we've listened to has grown tremendously. And frankly it's just a a joy to spend time with him.

Michael, 3 lessons with Vincenzo

Excellent tutor.

Vincenzo is an excellent tutor. He answers all of my questions and does not hesitate to explain why a situation is just so. I am very happy that I have him as my tutor.

Nicholas, 8 lessons with Vincenzo

Great tutor and very accommodating

I hired Vincenzo for my online Genetics class and he's been absolutely great! We work on my homework problems, he's helped me with my research paper, and he's going to work overtime to help me prep for the final. I had just 2 months to get through the class and he has been available whenever I need him. Genetics is a tough subject and not one of my favorites but he's made it palatable.

Deborah, 10 lessons with Vincenzo

The best!

My first three lessons with Vincenzo have been excellent. He is patient and explains things in a way that I understand them. I highly recommend him.

Joe, 4 lessons with Vincenzo

Does a lot of extra work in preparation for the lessons

There were different specialized research projects I worked on with Dr. E. I am very grateful to him for having done a lot of work in preparation for those projects. He didn't even charge for the work he did in preparation for the lessons. He bought two books, sent me many articles and did a lot of reading in preparation for the tutorials. He was very good at explaining the complicated material to me. He is an excellent tutor and is passionate about the subject. I would like to write more, but I have to go in order not to be late for my tutoring session with him. I highly recommend him to you!
