About Lincoln

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!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring 2 boys ages 6 and 8 in various subjects with WyzAnt for about a month. I am also writing a children's novel for kids ages 8 to 12 and have experience volunteering with kids in the K to 6th grade range as well.

ESL/ESOL

I served as an assistant in an ESL program run by my Spanish high school teacher for a year. I have studied Spanish since grade school, it was my Minor in college, and I also have experience teaching a foreign language other than English - I have taught 5 semesters of Swedish through a non-profit organization called the Global Language Network.

Golf

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.

Social Studies

I studied Political Science in college, took many history classes and have experience tutoring in social studies before.

Study Skills

I have taught foreign language classes in both Swedish and Spanish (currently with the former). I am also currently tutoring 4 students ranging in ages from 8 to 35 on a variety of topics, and 3 of the 4 I am helping to improve their studying skills in one capacity or another. Please feel free to contact me through WzyAnt if you need more detailed information.

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.
