Hello, I'm Megan, currently an undergraduate attending UCSB. During high school, my teacher recommended me to tutor a student in Biology who wasn't yet proficient in English. Helping her throughout the school year, especially in a subject I love, gave me a new appreciation for both teachers and students. As a high school student, I took many AP courses, and through those I learned not only the course content but also lifelong skills such as time management, stress management, effective communication with my peers, and most importantly- efficient team work. In combination, these skills greatly improved my tutoring for the high school crowd dealing with the pressure of standardized testing and advanced course material. I usually offer cram sessions for students preparing for their AP and SAT exams, so my lessons cover all aspects of the course along with test taking strategy specified to each subject and exam type. Because my material covers a year of content in the subjects I am tutoring, I am also able to provide functional lesson material for the same subjects at the regular and honors level. With the recency of my experience, all my teaching materials, skills, and strategies are up to date with any new developments in the AP and SAT. As a result, my lessons are in a digestible format of visual presentations paired with comprehensive lectures and relevant practice. Before tutoring a new student, I always discuss the expectations set for our tutoring period, scheduling, as well as any necessary adjustments to my basic format as described above.

Along with coursework in various math levels and subjects, I have over a year of tutoring experience in high school mathematics. And even before I began officially tutoring, I offered peers and underclassmen singular sessions to help with a concept or topic. For a short time period, before the Covid-19 situation escalated, I tutored at my local Saturday Academy, which was a substitute for summer school. Along with other tutors, I helped freshmen who were struggling in

Biology

I have tutored several students in high school biology, especially students whose first language isn't English. On top of taking the AP Biology course and exam, I also extensively explored biology in my own time, and tested as a USABO semifinalist. My avid interest in biology carries me throughout my undergraduate studies, and is something I hope to share with my students.

SAT Math

I have tutored a couple of students for the SAT, so our sessions focused on test taking skills as well as content for each section. Additionally, I have very recent experience taking the SAT and the SAT Math 2 subject test. I also have taken the AP Calculus BC exam and course, so am very familiar with the mathematical content of the section.
