About Megan

A college level instructor since 2007 and now an instructor in the History Department at Notre Dame Namur University, I know how hard it is to perfect the essay and present ones best self in paper and verbally.
Tutor any age or grade level in the social sciences and art of essay writing . Help prep college essays. Coach oral communication skills. Come to the student’s home or a local library. Counsel all family members as needed, to develop a plan for academic success

I hope that students will demonstrate skills and knowledge learned through our work together in applications, essays, exams, classroom participation and presentations and demonstrate development of the following skills:
-Improved critical thinking, reading and analysis of historical and literary sources
-Effective essay writing using both primary and secondary historical sources
-Strong oral communication skills demonstrated through in class presentations, debates, and discussions
-Use the tools of social science research – statistical and qualitative – in formulating research topics, collecting and analyzing evidence, and presenting results

I have success with my college students and I want to spread what I know!

I am a long time Belmont resident, graduate of Sacred Heart Preparatory, The College of William and Mary and Brown University.

Approved subjects

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.
