All of Megan’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Megan’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Philosophy

Philosophy is one of my greatest passions, so I chose to minor in it as an undergraduate at Baylor University. During that time, I learned to become very familiar with various philosophers and their ideas. From the foundational ideas of Plato and Socrates to the ground-breaking ideas of Hobbes and Locke to more recent philosophers such as Alasdair MacIntyre, I have come to love the art of philosophy.

I have taken a wide variety of philosophy classes and have studied several different topic areas. This includes: Classic History of Philosophy, Logic and Critical Thinking, History of Modern European Philosophy, Jewish Philosophy, and Philosophy of Faith. I have studied the ideas of and read the original texts of several famous philosophers including (but not limited to): Socrates, Plato, Augustine, Aquinas, Bacon, Descartes, Hume, Kierkegaard, Durkheim, Kant, Hobbes, Locke, Nietzsche, Machiavelli, and Marx.

In addition to taking several courses, I have taught Ancient and Modern philosophy courses at the undergraduate level. In those courses, we covered famous philosophers' works such as Aristotle, Plato, and Machiavelli.

I believe that taking the time to read various philosophers' ideas helps develop skills such as critical thinking as well as learn how to develop an argument. Additionally, the intense analysis that is required when reading a philosophic text is both engaging and challenging. To me, philosophy is a great door to many of life's most important questions: How does the world work? Why are things the way they are? Can you prove the existence of God? What is the nature of man?

I hope, through tutoring, to both share my love for philosophy and to help individuals develop the critical thinking skills needed to analyze philosophy. Additionally, I hope to help them not only understand philosophical arguments but to challenge them and create their own arguments as well. In short, I believe one should learn how to engage in a conversation with the philosophers themselves.

Proofreading

Currently, I have a Ph.D. in Psychology from Baylor University. Part of my job includes writing, editing, and publishing journal articles in professional journals. Additionally, I serve as an expert editor/reviewer for other academics' scholarly work. To date, I have published 18 journal articles and book chapters.

Thus, I am highly qualified to help with any proofreading or editing that may be needed for a wide variety of topics. In addition to my professional attainment in writing, I performed very well at the undergraduate and graduate levels as well. I wrote papers that received high grades (all As) in a variety of topics: philosophy, psychology, middle east studies, history, literature, etc. I am very familiar with both APA and MLA formatting.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills to students at the college level for the past 6 years as a Ph.D. student and now as a professor with a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology. Given my background in psychology, I can not only teach study skills, but I can utilize techniques designed to decrease anxiety and increase confidence among students.
