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 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.

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.
