About Megan

I recently graduated with my MA in English from the University of Maine (UMaine), where I defended my thesis on graduate matriculation genres. Prior to my MA, I graduated with my BS in English from Husson University. I have teaching and extensive tutoring experience outside of Wyzant. At UMaine, I taught freshman composition for the academic year of 2014-2015 and was the TA of their Writing Center for the year of 2013-2014. I tutored privately and through Husson University for approximately 3 years, where I was the student coordinator of the Writing Center. While at Husson, I was also a peer mentor, teaching a freshman orientation course for the fall semester of 2012. My favorite thing about tutoring is sharing knowledge and learning more from each tutoring experience I have. I am very approachable, non-judgmental, and find joy in making connections with my students that will carry over into our discussions about language, reading, or writing.

I have extensive experience in tutoring, and I am always reading up on teaching and tutoring strategies to bring into my work. With my educational background in English/writing studies, I am very knowledgeable about the field and have experience in teaching composition, giving me not only experience but theories to back up my practices.

Through not only my work as a peer mentor for Husson's freshman orientation course, but also in my long career as a student, I have learned (and studied) useful ways of understanding one's own studying habits and reflecting on these habits to determine what strategies might work best for particular students.

I am highly computer literate, being around computers since 2nd grade. I am quick to pick up new computer skills and am patient. Thus, my students find me more approachable and helpful to learn from. I also have experience teaching computer skills to elementary, middle-school, college, and elderly populations.

As a forever student, I not only love teaching but learning from my scholars as well. Send me a message, and we can set up a lesson!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Public Speaking

I have won competitions for public speaking when I was in elementary school, and I continued to do well with this skill into my undergraduate and graduate experiences. I have many experiences with public speaking in professional senses, presenting in professional conferences. Finally, I also substituted a public speaking course while I was in my undergraduate program.

Study Skills

I not only have extensive experience with experimenting with different strategies for studying and time management, but I developed the curriculum for the freshman orientation course for Husson. I then was a peer mentor for the fall semester of this course, co-teaching with a faculty member. In my tutoring experience, I also had students request me for help with developing schedules for studying and study skills.
