Bar Exam - Missouri Awesome, very knowledgeable and nice I am a foreign lawyer and I did not go to law school in the United States.  I enrolled in an online bar review for the Missouri bar.  I took the bar exam and came very close to passing and decided I needed help in my essay writing. I hired Judy and she very quickly diagnosed what my problems were and we set up a study schedule. She carefully guided me through the review materials with meetings twice a week.  She took corrective action in my essay writing. She is also very knowledgeable with MBE. I took the bar exam again and passed easily. She also tutored me for the MPRE and I got a high score.  I shall forever be indebted to Judy for her expertise, dedication and being very nice.  Anyone looking for a bar exam tutor must consider this person. She is very simply the best.  Corazon Cozzolino, Indiana Monday, September 21, 2020

College Chemistry

FANTASTIC teacher, even better person.
Dr. Patrick has not only made my foundation in chemistry stronger, he has also made my confidence with chemistry sky rocket. He is very patient and provides encouragement that really makes the learning process comfortable and stress free. If you don’t get something, he will bend backwards for you to get it. He will always reword or re-explain concepts that you don’t get at first, but with Dr. Patrick I GUARANTEE you will learn it by the end of the lesson or within the next lesson. Also, something I find helpful about him is that he does not go too fast or too slow, he knows his students and what pace is best for them. Dr. Patrick is a great person as well, very kind and funny. He never fails to brighten my day and get my mind ready to learn! I highly recommend him as a tutor, I had very little back ground in chemistry and I now attend a very prestigious school. I was so worried about my performance in college chemistry but now I feel at peace and can enjoy classes for the rest of my college career without worrying about not immediately getting a concept in taught class. With the help of Dr. Patrick, my understanding of chemistry has increased tremendously within a few lessons, I can even say he has taught me more than my high school or summer classes has ever had. Dr. Patrick knows his stuff too! He is a very well educated man which is apparent in his lessons! He will never give up on you! Please use him! He is RELIABLE! His response time is unbeatable and the lessons are always helpful. Dr. Patrick is one of the best, if not THE best, tutors I have ever had. Very worth it! Get your grades and confidence up with Dr. Patrick! He will not disappoint!

Great Tutorial with Dr. Patrick V.
Several months ago I set out to find a tutor who could work with mento create an independent study for my son who is in 10th grade. The objective was to find an area of interest for him which was biochemistry and a way to teach a highly individualized curriculum by remote learning. I evaluated many qualified tutors over Wyzant. However, when I reviewed the specific advanced accomplishments in teaching, research and academics that Dr. Patrick had I realized he was perfect for the role. Since then we have been collaborating and he has starred to work with my son. Dr. Patrick is flexible, responsive, creative and is preparing to provide the just right level of challenge. My son and he have already forged an instant rapport and my son is excited about his summer “course.” I am thankful to the benefits of his interface that I have been able to find the ideal person to provide my son with a unique experience this summer.

2018 DAT (Dental Admission Test) ... Update

More Than a Tutor...A Coach and a Friend. 
I had the pleasure to work with Dr. Vincent-Pope over the past two in a half months in a fast-paced, bootcamp style preparation for the Dental Aptitude Exam. Wow! With his coaching and guidance, I was able to cover roughly four years of college course material during this small amount of time. Dr. Vincent-Pope is a master instructor and can break down very difficult concepts in ways that can be more easily understood. He is patient and willing to go the extra mile to help. Not only did I achieve my goal for the DAT, I performed at a much higher level overall; my mind is sharper, faster, and more efficient. The structured style also instills good habits anyone can use throughout life. The program has changed me for the better and I am confident I am well equipped/prepared to handle the rigors of dental school. (UPDATE) I was just accepted into both in-state NC dental schools (UNC-CH & ECU)!!! Thank you, Dr. Vincent-Pope ("Coach").  Dont forget TGB.  -Scott

Your accommodating our schedule - while we were traveling, adjusting to the 8 hour time difference and daily 2 hour sessions, your ability to clearly explain and work side by side (via poor internet connection) made it possible for Zach to succeed on the final exam and thus end the year with a positive grade !!!!

"Knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly"
Dr Patrick was very thorough on identifying my daughter's needs in Chemistry. He explained the differences in specific equations that would be deemed confusing, like molarity and molality. Dr. Patrick took into account my daughter’s processing time, and waited for her to fully understand everything she needed to know before moving onto the next topic. I will definitely be calling Dr Patrick again!

2017 DAT (Dental Admission Test)

Success story!
Dr. Vincent-Pope helped me prepare for the DAT (Dental Admission Test). It was my second time taking the exam. With his help, I was able to increase my Biology section score by 5 points. I believe I could not have accomplished this without his guidance. He was very prompt, always prepared, and serious about my success--an excellent coach! My "impressive DAT scores" were mentioned in all of my dental school interviews. I am sure that this played a large role in my acceptance to all of the schools to which I applied. I am very grateful for Dr. Vincent-Pope.

Awesome tutor, very committed!

Dr. Patrick has been teaching my son AP Chemistry. He was recently doing an online lesson and there was a problem with the network. Dr. Patrick went out of his way to get that fixed and waited for a long time although it was late night since my son had a test the following day! He is in general a very organized, knowledgeable and an excellent tutor. I would very highly recommend him.

Dr. V's teaching style delves beyond commonplace tutoring dealing with the "what why and how" rather then just the conventional "how". The lessons travel far beyond how to solve the problem on the screen, dealing with the concept behind the problem. His unique style of teaching by teaching students  how to think unlocks the door to a world of new opportunities.

Dr. Patrick was by far the most helpful tutor that i've ever had in my entire life. Not only does he improve your grade in the class, he makes sure that you fully understand the material before moving on. He is also a very good person as you can talk to him about personal matters. He improved my knowledge and grade significantly and i am very thankful for him.

Incredible Tutor
Judy was my tutor for several months leading up to the Feb 2016 NC Bar exam. She immediately constructed a daily study schedule for me, and we would review my progress via Skype for hourly sessions. Judy was always very well prepared and knowledgeable in all subject areas. She would work with me to improve my outlines and flash cards, and we would practice explaining complicated concepts and issues. I found her to be an incredibly helpful resource. I felt extremely confident going into the exam, and ultimately passed. I would strongly recommend Judy to anyone looking for a Bar tutor.

Honors Pre-calculus and Honors Chemistry

I cannot say enough about Patrick, my daughter was struggling and losing confidence with Pre-calculus and Chemistry. After meeting with Patrick he analyzed and prepared a plan. Immediately, I saw a change in my daughters grades and while it was a struggle in the beginning, she was able to maintain her honor roll status. The one on one tutoring makes a huge difference. Patrick truly cares about his students; his confidence building is so important to teens today. We would highly recommend Patrick !

AP Biology

Dr. Patrick Vincent-Pope is an amazing teacher, and his tutoring made an incredible difference for my son in his AP Biology class. My son has always been extremely successful in school, but he was feeling overwhelmed by the amount of material being quickly covered in his one-semester AP Biology class. He was starting to receive grades that were not up to his normal standards and it was really getting frustrating for him.  The one-on-one sessions with Dr. Patrick helped his comprehension of the subject matter tremendously, and he enjoyed AP Biology so much that he's considering majoring in it in college. He received an excellent final grade and his AP exam grade was outstanding, too. We highly recommend Dr. Vincent-Pope to anyone wishing to better their understanding of difficult science class material.

You will not find a better teacher

Dr. Patrick Vincent-Pope is, without question, the best teacher I've had in my 7 years of higher education. Here's why: Dr. Vincent-Pope is exceptionally intelligent and can brilliantly communicate and explain challenging concepts. Dr. Vincent-Pope has a huge collection of supplemental material which complements the schoolwork I bring to him to review. This supplemental material, along with the clear and concise way he progresses though it, always proves to strengthen my understanding of the topic under review. Additionally, he is always prepared for every session. Each time I enter the office for a session, the material to review is loaded on the computer and no time is wasted. Often times, for the concepts I need to review, it is necessary to first work through important background material. This supplemental information is also loaded on the computer, allowing the work to begin right away. Dr. Vincent-Pope is hard-working (he always works though the problems on his own sent to him before the session), patient (if I do not understand a concept the first time it is explained, he acknowledges that it is tricky and finds a new way to explain the material), enthusiastic (it is clear that he is passionate both about the subjects he teaches and ensuring the student succeeds in those subjects), and an excellent communicator. To sum up, Dr. Vincent-Pope knows his stuff and he has all the tools to make sure that you know it, too. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Vincent-Pope.

Dr. Patrick is very knowledgeable, methodical, thorough and patient when teaching a concept. He can cater teaching to the students of any level of understanding. His power point presentations are very effective. My 14 year old daughter had a few tutoring sessions with Dr. Patrick. She enjoyed all of them and felt that the sessions were very effective and helpful for her exams. She is looking forward to attending the tutorial classes for her sophomore AP chemistry and math subjects. I am so glad that I found an excellent, God sent tutor in Dr. Patrick.

Excellent biochemistry tutor!
My friend and I began seeing Patrick mid-semester for biochemistry tutoring. From the first session, he was very friendly and approachable. He did a fantastic job preparing for each session by reformatting the PowerPoint slides I sent him. He made sure to include information that gave us a better understanding of concepts we learned in class each week. He made things fairly easy to understand, which was outstanding, considering that biochemistry is known for being incredibly challenging. He was also very easy to keep in touch with, and he always responded to emails quickly. He was also incredibly flexible and accommodating, even meeting with the two of us on the weekend in preparation for an upcoming exam. I would highly recommend Patrick to anyone taking biochemistry!

Judy is a kind yet serious tutor that combines her legal and teacher experience to make a highly beneficial tutoring experience. For the NC Bar exam in particular, she is willing to take as much time with you as necessary to ensure that you master the concepts and improve your writing and MBE scores. I personally have seen her commitment firsthand to providing excellent tutoring skills. I look forward to seeing all of her handwork and skill pay off on the February NC Bar Exam!

Written 4/15/14:

Update: I recently sat for and passed the NC February Bar Exam and I have no one to credit but Judy. I originally contacted Judy in need of essay score improvement but she enthusiastically set a goal that surpassed my expectations and included scoring high enough to waive into DC. She boosted my essay and MBE scores dramatically and as she predicted, not only was I successful on the NC Bar Exam but I was even able to waive into the DC Bar. She set a reasonable schedule for me, met with me weekly, and gave honest yet encouraging feedback while tweaking my study schedule and style to optimally best suit my needs. It is with no hesitation that I would HIGHLY recommend her to any student studying for the NC Bar Exam.

I am an adult student returning to school after twelve years. Not only did Patrick help me understand the material I was having trouble with, but he took a good portion of his own time to talk with me about my goals.

I can say without a doubt, that if I find myself needed extra help in the future, I will definitely contact him again.

AP Biology, 12th Grade

Excellent Tutor, Very Responsive, Process Oriented
Patrick tutored our son in AP Biology from December 2012 through May 2013 and did a great job! We would highly recommend him! Our son is a very bright young man--but we affectionately refer to him as the absent-minded professor. He is not well organized and sometimes lacks the requisite focus to be as successful as his capabilities would suggest. He was struggling with AP Biology due primarily to his nascent organizational and study skills. Patrick recognized these issues very quickly and defined a process and methodology for study process--read all materials in advance and do the exercises in the book. Patrick would then reinforce those concepts by reviewing with our son, each chapter, to assure preparation and the requisite understanding to be successful. Not only did Patrick help our son with the study of AP Biology but he introduced discipline and organization that was necessary for success. We feel very blessed to have found Patrick and greatly appreciate his kind, patient, but no nonsense approach to teaching high school students. Final point--in the past we have used tutors for our son with mixed success and we are so happy that we found Patrick when we did--he was exactly what we needed.
