My name is Meagan and I have been tutoring and/or teaching in some capacity for the last four years. I've had two jobs that have had a strong impact on me. One of my favorite jobs was as a reading tutor for Sullivan Learning Systems where I worked with students one-on-one and am proud to say that one of my eighth grade students who was at a sixth grade reading level when I started tutoring him rose to a ninth grade reading level by the time we finished our seven weeks of scheduled tutoring time. I was happy to see him improve so greatly just based on the reading we did during tutoring time, the vocabulary words we talked about and looked up the meanings to in a dictionary, the short paragraphs I had him write about what we read, and the reading I gave him to finish at home.
My other favorite job was working as a tutor for Breakthrough Sacramento where I went to a school once a week and tutored seventh and eighth grade students in writing and math. I greatly enjoyed my time teaching them about different types of poetry. For example, I loved teaching students what goes into a limerick, having them write their own limericks, and then having students share their limericks with the class.
So, if you ever need any help with writing, math, science, and especially reading and reading comprehension; I would love to help you.
