Hi! My name is Megan, and I am a certified Secondary English teacher with a passion for helping students reach their full potential. I have over 5 years of experience working with students of all ages, including college. Some of my strongest areas of expertise are SAT Prep, writing, reading comprehension, and study skills and organizational habits. During sessions, I use the student's current curriculum to assist with learning, and introduce additional materials if/as needed. I'm also a firm believer in setting goals, as a means of both monitoring progress, as well as helping students to gain accountability. I love helping students build their confidence and recognize their own capabilities. I am available after school, evenings and on Saturdays.
As a High School English Teacher, I have had the opportunity to utilize the English subject to teach students several essential skills that they will use in all aspects of life. Comprehension, Grammar usage, and writing techniques are all key components of the English language. I have worked with many students on an individual basis, to ensure that they are learning the foundations they need to continue making progress. Language development and the ability to communicate effectively are critical to the learning process. I have extensive experience working with students at their own level - and making the material relevant to them. I believe that learning should be fun, appropriately challenging, and rewarding.
One of the aspects of literature that I enjoy the most is the use of thematic elements - and the challenge of applying them to yourself and the modern world. When I tutor students in this specific area, I am dedicated to helping them gain perspective and insight. I have had many of my students discover that there is something to be gleaned - from even the most seemingly insignificant assignments. I have an ability to help students rethink their approach to literature, and find the deeper meaning that keeps them connected to the author's intent - not just the literal aspect.
