University of Maine (Mathematics - BA)
University of New Hampshire (MBA)
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Master's)
I'm a believer in education - lifelong education. I have a bachelor's degree in Pure Mathematics, a bachelor's degree in Industrial Technology, an MBA from the University of New Hampshire, and a Master's in Engineering Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. These degrees were earned over a span of forty years, the last being awarded in 2010. I was named a National Merit Scholar Finalist as a high school student and achieved a 760 (99th Percentile without test prep) on the GMAT in 1999.
I retired from the Pratt & Whitney Division of the United Technologies Corporation in 2010. After a three day break, I became a full-time mathematics professor at the University of New England in Biddeford, Maine. When I reflect on the many facets of this occupation, I find that I most loved the one-on-one interaction with students who required a bit of extra help. The university has a tutoring center , but I made myself available several hours a week to fulfill that need.
Prior to my retirement in May of 2016, I taught Precalculus and Statistics. I'm, therefore, fully qualified to help you with Algebra, Geometry, Probability and preparation for the SAT or GMAT.
I'm a very patient instructor who's fully invested in your success. I realize that math is a difficult subject for many people and I will work to find the level of instruction that works for you. Since I am retired, my schedule can accommodate yours. I'm a believer in education - lifelong education.

While struggling with how to help our daughter prepare for the Math section of her upcomng SAT, I came across the Wyzant website. I was pleasantly surprised to come across the name of a tutor who lived relatively close to us. I contacted this invdividual, Lincoln, via email, and was so happy to hear back from him so quickly. With the SAT fast approaching there was no time to waste. Linc is extremely patient, has an unbelievable resume and is the entire package. I wish he was a teacher at our daughters school. He comes prepared and develops an understanding of what the students needs are and builds on their strengths or should I say weaknesses. He has given our daughter a new sense of confidence in her ability to do her best on the SAT. He has faithfully met with our daughter once a week and brings plenty of advice, strategies and just plain problem solving examples for her to work on. The time and money spent are well worth it! I highly recommend Linc as tutor!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Geometry has been a particular favorite of mine within the realm of mathematics. I'm sure I can foster your understanding of this important topic.
I've often worked closely with non-traditional students at the university. Many were several years removed from the classroom and I devised materials to assess their level of readiness and pick the appropriate point at which to resume their studies.
