My name is Megan and I am in the class of 2015 at Amherst College. I am majoring in math, statistics and history. I graduated with the Class of 2011 from Phillips Academy Andover. In high school, I tutored various levels of mathematics for two years. When tutoring students I do not like to simply show a student an example. Instead, I prefer to not always directly give students an answer, but rather provide leading questions that help students grasp the concepts and reach the conclusion on their own.
