Vincent has been an excellent tutor for my 14 year old daughter. He helps her in all areas including Math, Reading, Writing and critical thinking. He is willing to create his own lessons or work with my daughter on her actual homework, which really helps her. Vincent is very patient and his experience with teaching students with learning disabilities really is obvious. I highly recommend him!

"Tutor - English, Reading, Writing, Grammar, Math, Science, SAT Prep"
Hi! My name is Vincent and I love to tutor! Great Tutors seek to help others understand and learn various academic subjects. They must be patient and understanding, as well as be able to assist, evaluate, motivate, develop and integrate their students in learning. I promise to use all of the tools at my disposal to guide your child to a greater understanding of the subject at hand.
I will always try to motivate my students and provide them with confidence. Students need to have positive att... ... More

"Patient and Friendly Public Speaking Tutor"
I am a 45 year-old single parent of 2 daughters. I graduated locally from Pleasant Valley High School in 1984. I attended a college near Harrisburg for paralegal studies. However, doing better at accounting, I made plans to transfer to a different college to start in January of 1986. Prior to switching colleges, I was approached with a job opportunity at our local courthouse because I was friendly and outgoing. I had worked in the Treasurer's office for 2 years when I was approached by a ... ... More
My son had essentially a month to prepare for his second round of SAT's. His scores in English and writing had to increase or he would have limited possibility of getting into the universities he desired. Within essentially a month, Jim was able to connect with my son and train him to think differently about his approach to the SAT test. I was amazed to see the conversion in my son's attitude and his self confidence soared. Regardless of what the final scores come out to be, Jim's unique style and patience left a marked impression on my son.

"Competent, Engaging Tutor in History, English and Math"
I am an encourager by nature, so being a tutor allows me to do what I do best. I have experience teaching in public and private schools, in addition to my extensive tutoring background; but I enjoy being able to give individual instruction that is tailored to the specific needs, personality, and learning style of the student. I am a parent myself and I have also worked with youth groups for many years, so there is a comfort level with teens ---I don't find them strange, intimidating, or una... ... More

"Experienced AP English Teacher Specializing in SAT Reading and Writing"
I have always been able to "reach" people. I guess that's why I became a teacher: that, and my love of language, literature and writing! I have spent the best years of my life in the classroom turning my students on to the beauty of language and literature. Serving as an AP reader every June was an exciting opportunity to see what the best high school writers in the nation were capable of! For a teacher of writing, the goal must always be to help students find their "personal... ... More

"Italian Mother Tongue & French "
I have tutored various students ranging from elementary, junior high to college undergraduates in Italian (my mother tongue) and French.
I am very passionate about the student's interest in learning another language (I speak 4 languages) and honor their interest by offering a really caring approach: learning a foreign language widens perspectives and knowledge.
I care about giving students the best for their learning, helping them to identify ways to continue their learning experience e... ... More
