About Meghann

I am a life-long member of the education community who has been student, tutor, and teacher at a wide range of levels. I love teaching--I love watching and helping students figure out a new skill, gain confidence, and achieve their goals.

As a graduate of a top university and a veteran teacher at a top private high school, I am quite familiar with what skills a student will need to have mastered in order to be competitive in high school and beyond.

I specialize in literature and writing of all kinds. I have tutored countless students through college essays in addition to analytical and creative non-fiction work. I can help students understand complex literature of all varieties. Finally, I am an experienced P/SAT tutor in both math and verbal.

I am a veteran high school English teacher who has worked with students at a wide range of ability levels. I understand how to break a larger task (such as an essay) up into smaller, more manageable pieces.

I have edited both for my job and for outside sources since the late '90s.

I am eager to work with anyone who is struggling to master reading comprehension and writing (no matter what the subject).

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.

English

I have a BA and MA in English Literature from Stanford and have been a high school English teacher at independent schools since 2002.

Literature

I have a BA and MA in English Literature from Stanford and have been a high school English teacher at independent schools since 2002. One of my primary specialities has been literature-based courses (British, American, and World).

Proofreading

I have a BA and MA in English Literature from Stanford and have been a high school English teacher at independent schools since 2002. A huge part of teaching English is grading papers, which also means that a huge part of teaching English is developing both an eye for grammatical errors and strategies for how best to fix them.

Reading

I have a BA and MA in English Literature from Stanford and have been a high school English teacher at independent schools since 2002. Without reading, English cannot exist as a subject. I have a great deal of experience in breaking complex texts down in a way that makes them accessible to students of all levels.

Writing

I have a BA and MA in English Literature from Stanford and have been a high school English teacher at independent schools since 2002. I have taught Creative Nonfiction, Creative, and analytical writing classes my entire career. In addition, I help students with their college essays every year. Finally, I am an experienced AP English teacher who has spent a great deal of time helping students improve at times writing.
