Bio

Learn AND have fun?? Blasphemy, if you ask some people; essential, if you ask me.

After a dozen years in the corporate grind, I'm over it. I'm finally pursuing what I love -- writing, languages and teaching. I'm nearing completion of my second book. I also teach Swedish through a local non-profit (was an exchange student many moons ago), an experience that helped me realize how much I love teaching. I'm planning on transitioning to full-time teaching within a year, and have been freelance...

Learn AND have fun?? Blasphemy, if you ask some people; essential, if you ask me.

After a dozen years in the corporate grind, I'm over it. I'm finally pursuing what I love -- writing, languages and teaching. I'm nearing completion of my second book. I also teach Swedish through a local non-profit (was an exchange student many moons ago), an experience that helped me realize how much I love teaching. I'm planning on transitioning to full-time teaching within a year, and have been freelance tutoring for over a year now. My main areas of concentration have been: English/composition, reading/writing, ESL, government/social studies, exam prep (i.e., GRE, SAT), history, government and study skills. I have also tutored elementary math and am comfortable up through pre-Algebra. That's my nephew in the pic -- I love kids and have worked with ages 4-18, but I also work with many adults primarily on ESL, exam prep and essay composition.

When it comes to teaching and learning, my methodology is quite simple -- don't just tell students facts; tell them as much as possible WHY things are the way they are -- context and perspective can go a long way toward helping students to not just memorize a fact, but to truly conceptualize. I look forward to helping you or your student get over the hump with your/their academic challenges. If I cannot help you with the subject at hand, I will not waste your money or anybody's time and will do my best to refer you to someone who can.

I typically meet clients either in-home or at the library, but I am flexible within Arlington and the DC Metro area. My hourly rates are extremely competitive and I am more than happy to provide references. Thank you and have an awesome day!

I have played golf since I was 8 years old. In high school, I was on the golf team and won 3rd in Districts my junior year. I still play to about a 10 handicap despite not playing as often as I would like these days. I also provide ongoing golf instruction to my 16 year old cousin who is learning the game.

Great Tutor!

Lincoln worked very well with my 17 year-old son on his SAT preparation. Lincoln was willing to accommodate my son's schedule and appears to be very patient and knowledgeable.
