Vincent worked with my daughter over the summer on improving her SAT scores in critical reading and writing. She just re-took her SATs, so we don't know yet exactly how much she will have improved, but a practice test at the end of the summer showed dramatic improvement, and she is holding a stong "A" in her AP English Literature class right now, whereas last year, she struggled with AP English. I'm confident that it was Vincent's patient and structured tutoring that have given her the basis of competency that she needs to be successful in English. I was very impressed with his educational credentials, and he was personable and encouraging, yet strong in his communication of expectations for my student. In my opinion, Vincent is the best tutoring value available for help in all levels of High School English and SAT Prep!
