About Megan

Hi there!

I am a Chemistry Graduate from University College Dublin, Ireland. I received an academic scholarship to college, and graduated valedictorian with a first class honors degree and full marks in all Chemistry and Biochemistry subjects. I moved to the Bay Area 3 years ago with my husband and two daughters, and am delighted to have continued with my tutoring in the US.

I have tutored Chemistry, Biology and Math (up to Algebra 2) for over 7 years, SAT and ACT prep for 2 years, and have loved every minute so far. I have also worked as a lab assistant to help students complete laboratory work towards Biology and Chemistry and would be happy to help with any experimental preparation. I really enjoy helping high school students reach their potential in the Science and Math subjects and my high school tutoring experience is extensive. I believe that to really motivate middle school and high school students, you must understand the students learning style, and build on that. I assign homework to students at the end of most lessons to ensure that they have understood the material that we covered. However, I will always provide notes on the important aspects of our session for the student to look back on in order to prevent them becoming overwhelmed.

I am highly experienced with test prep for Sat II Subject tests for Chemistry or Biology E/M, and with ACT Math and Science, and SAT math prep. With my test preparation students I focus on exam tips, tricks and practice as well as any content-based issues that they might have. I supply a diagnostic test for the student to complete before we start any test prep classes, and that way I can identify weaknesses and provide a plan of action for how to approach the coming weeks. I feel it is important for students to have some direct help and support when approaching the SAT and ACT, especially with the redesigned SAT as it is new for everyone.



My availability is flexible (7 days a week) so please get in touch to set up a schedule or a class. I look forward to hearing from you and getting started.

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.

Chemistry

As a valedictorian Chemist, graduating with top scores in all my classes, I am well qualified to help and encourage all levels of Chemistry students. I have been tutoring Chemistry for more than eight years, and have helped dozens of students reach their potential, and boost their grades, interest, and confidence. I have prepared students for the AP Chemistry exam, the SAT II Subject test in Chemistry, and helped them with ongoing classwork throughout the year.
