My principal honored me with his 'Shining Star' award in 2006, and in 2008 I was chosen as the distinguished alumna for the foreign languages department at the University of North Texas, where I received my Master's.
I have been a tutor for the past 5 years and have worked with both middle and high school students. I believe that a tutoring session should helpful and fun. I have a variety of learning games and activities that I use in my sessions so that all learning styles can be met. Let me help you learn French! Bonjour!

Megan has made my daughter's confidence and success in French skyrocket! I wish I had found her sooner! I highly recommend Megan. My 17 year old daughter adds, "She's great, I love her! She makes French fun. I look forward to our tutoring sessions."
Merci beaucoup for your kind words! I am so glad that your daughter looks forward to our sessions -- I do, too! She is a pleasure to work with and I see so much progress in her. I wish you had found me sooner!
Megan's method of teaching is very effective and helpful. Her happy and positive attitude makes learning more fun. I look forward to my future lessons!
My daughter looks forward to Megan's tutoring visit every week. Megan plans fun activities and encourages my daughter to advance and study on her own. Megan is amazing, patient, and kind. I think she would be an excellent tutor for the advanced student, as well as the struggling student. Megan has been flexible with my daughter's sometimes hectic high school schedule. We feel very fortunate to have found Megan!
I really enjoy working with your daughter (I look forward to our lessons, too!) and am so impressed with the progress she has made over the past year. Un grand merci for your kind words and I am so happy you chose me as your French tutor!
Our daughter is studying AP French and working hard to get through the material. Megan is great in helping her get to where she needs to be! Thanks so much!
Megan is very professional, courteous and responsive. We have enjoyed working with her and look forward to having her back to work with my son next week.
I started taking lessons from Megan right after Christmas in preparation for a trip to France this April. So our focus from the get-go has been travel French (although she teaches everything) and I'm loving it.
Megan is fantastic! She's very flexible, both in terms of what topics you'd like to learn and in meeting places for lessons.
Patience is a virtue in any teacher, and Megan has endless patience. I'm probably the slowest adult learner she's ever had, but she never gets frustrated or impatient. She helps me work at my own pace but also pushes me to practice the things I avoid (numbers!) and continues to assign homework, which hopefully someday I will actually do!.
Anyway, she is a fantastic teacher and any lessons with her are worth your time and money. Au revoir!
Megan is doing a wonderful job teaching French to my two daughters. She is very patient and she has fun activities for them each week. I love how she gets to know them and includes their interests. She is a fantastic teacher!
I am so glad your daughters are enjoying our time together and I'm happy they enjoy the activities. They are both so much fun to work with and it is wonderful that they are learning a second language at a young age! I really enjoy teaching them!
We were so lucky to find Megan as a French tutor. We specifically wanted someone good with children and she certainly fits the bill. Megan is currently tutoring our 5 year old daughter as well as another child. She uses many techniques to keep their attention which really helps focus them and increase their interest in French. Our daughter is getting more confident in her French every time she has a class. Thanks Megan. We are really happy with how the classes are going.
I am so happy to work with both of the children and think it is wonderful that you are exposing them to a new language at such a young age -- that is a special gift and they will carry that skill with them for the rest of their lives. Merci beaucoup for your very kind words and I am so happy you chose me to work with these 2 delightful children!
I really enjoyed working with Megan!I was studying for French III this summer and her sessions were packed with great exercises. She was very good about listening to what I needed to work on and bringing resources to help me really learn the material. Sometimes it seems daunting to get up and go to tutoring, but she always made it fun. I left looking forward to the next meeting! You'll really enjoy working with Megan... and you'll learn lots too!
Merci beaucoup for your kind words! I really enjoyed working with you & glad I was able to help. I'm happy you learned a lot and had fun, too!
Megan is patient and encouraging. She tailors the sessions to meet my needs. She comes prepared with a variety of exercises and ideas for our work together, but also remains flexible throughout.
I really enjoyed working with you -- you had great questions and made the most of each of our sessions. I am confident that your trip to France will be très fantastique and you will be able to understand and communicate.
Megan really helped me a lot with French. She focused on what I was struggling with the most and helped me to understand the concept of what I was having difficulties with. Each lesson was unique depending on what I needed to have help on and she had a variety of ways to help me learn that was best suited for me.
Megan is awesome. She is very knowledgeable about French. She makes learning fun and enjoyable. My daughter is excelling in French because of Megan and us always happy to be able to learn from her!
We highly recommend Megan for French lessons!
We are do lucky we found her!
Merci! I really enjoy working with your daughter and watching her ability and confidence grow. I would love to work with you again!
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.
J'adore le français! Ever since I was little, I wanted to learn French. I took 4 years in high-school, majored in French in college, and I have an MA in French (4.0 GPA) as well.
I taught high-school French for 10 years, and have taught all levels, including AP. I am currently teaching French at Colorado School of Mines, where I brought back the French program after a 15-year hiatus. I love teaching and working with students.
I have tutored French for over 6 years, and have worked with elementary school students through adult learners. I incorporate a variety of learning strategies into my sessions and I like to make my sessions fun. I have a vast library of resources and can work with you on any or all of the 4 skills (listening, reading, writing, speaking) and grammar as well. Learning games & partner activities are part of almost every session I give.
I have traveled to France 8 times since 1996, and have also been to Belgium, Switzerland, and Monaco. I am regularly complimented on my accent while in France. If you are looking to travel to France, I would love to help you plan your trip!
I truly enjoy working with all types of students and hope I can work with you as well!
I love grammar! I have always been a strong grammar student, and my French classes re-inforced my English grammar knowledge. Gerunds, adverbs, prepositional phrases, direct objects, present participles, and more are no problem!
I have worked with many of my students to help with their organization and study skills. I have taught them how to use an assignment sheet and/or homework planner. I have also worked with students on how and what to highlight with a highlighter.
When dealing with reading passages or listening passages followed by questions, we have talked about how it is easier to focus on the passage when one reads the questions first.
I am a big fan of flashcards, as they are portable and allow students to work on material when they have a few minutes to spare. Plus, when they make the flashcards, they are learning as well.
Finally, I have told students that the best way to study is to do some review/study time each night, rather than try to cram before the test. By reviewing every night, the material can move from short-term to long-term memory and it will 'stick' better in the student's head.
