Manhattan - Bronx - Westchester -Remote

Math - Reading - Writing

K - 5th Grade

Vincent is a native New Yorker; born and raised in the Bronx, currently lives and works in the Bronx.  Never wanting to leave the city and being raised around theatre, Vincent pursued a career in musical theatre before and after getting a BA in Theatre Arts from Lehman College (also in the Bronx). 


As many performers, Vincent worked odd jobs while auditioning full-time (if only an actor could be paid to audition).  One of these day jobs led to a job teaching music and dance and art at a Kidville enrichment center.  After a few months, Vincent was the head teacher of the entire facility, leading their alternative Pre-K program, known as their KVU (Kidville University).  Vincent bonded and connected with so many families, they started to ask, "Why isn't THIS your career?"  As that question was presented more frequently, Vincent shifted careers, attended Lehman College (still in the Bronx) and acquired his Master's of Science in Education (Early Childhood Education) and has been a teacher full-time since. He has been at Riverdale Country School for the last four years where he is currently a second grade head teacher. 


Over Vincent's summer vacation from school, he doesn't do much traveling, but he does see an awful lot of theatre and writes music on his downtime.

"Vincent is incredible with children. He understands the needs of each child and helps them foster creativity. Vincent takes the time to connect with each child and creates a connection with them that allows them to feel safe to be themselves. What a pure joy and talent he is!!"

"Vincent was my daughter’s first teacher. She was very attached and nervous to leave me. Vincent was confident, sincere, funny, never pushy, and the only reason why my daughter didn’t cry when I left. He has an earnest way about him that makes kids flock to him. The most important thing to me was that he took the time to notice her differentiated learning needs and personality nuances and let that inform his teaching approach so could feel like a successful independent learner."

"We are fortunate that our daughter attends an excellent elementary school in Marin County, just north of San Francisco: the teachers, administrators, and facilities are all impressive.  Nevertheless, her 2nd grade with teacher Claudia Freedman was a highlight.  Our daughter remembers Claudia as a teacher who made school so much fun.  As parents, we are also grateful for the educational foundation that Claudia established.  Our daughter came out of Claudia's class with strong confidence in her academic and social skills.  This confidence continues to serve her well."
