About Megan


Bio

I have been tutoring for eight years. I'm available throughout the fall for Spanish lessons and after our initial session, will schedule 1 month in advance.

Spanish is a passion of mine. I am not a native speaker, so I am familiar with the steps of language acquisition personally. I have traveled to Spain and studied abroad in Costa Rica. Currently, I teach pre-school part-time. My tutoring curriculum always involves games and fun activities, buy I'm not opposed to structured learning...

I have been tutoring for eight years. I'm available throughout the fall for Spanish lessons and after our initial session, will schedule 1 month in advance.

Spanish is a passion of mine. I am not a native speaker, so I am familiar with the steps of language acquisition personally. I have traveled to Spain and studied abroad in Costa Rica. Currently, I teach pre-school part-time. My tutoring curriculum always involves games and fun activities, buy I'm not opposed to structured learning environments with pencil and paper. I am currently CPR certified, and have already obtained Fingerprint Clearance, as well as having passed a Federal Background Check (to work for the U.S. Census Bureau). As a someone who genuinely cares, I take the safety and education of children seriously. Please contact me if you have any questions!

I would be happy to message you with more details about my personal tutoring strategy.

Thank you for considering me as a tutor!

ESL/ESOL

I am a native English Speaker with M.Ed. I am formally trained in linguistics, morphology and phonetics for my undergraduate degree. I have 6 Graduate Credits in Bilingual Education. The Bilingual Education courses focused on teaching strategies for Second Language Learners (English Language Learners/ELLs). For example, one strategy is SIOP, which is a learning program that stands for Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol. The focus of this model is examining language objectives. Language acquisition is a process. I put into practice the SIOP model in designing unique lesson plans that assess the student and holds them accountable in content standards (e.g., practical applications of Biology in developing English skills). I have worked with, and continue to work with students who's first language is not English in the classroom.

My son enjoyed his lesson

After their first class my son had a lot to talk about. He had a lot of fun and was walking around trying to name everything at home in Spanish.

iGracias, Samanatha! I'm so glad X is excited about Spanish and he's fun to work with :)

Great tutor

Megan was awesome. She is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. She had many fantastic suggestions and provided me with tools and ways to find outside resources to help me with the issues I was struggling with. Her tutorship was invaluable in helping me complete my course. She was always professional and prompt. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking help. She also happens to be a really great person who is friendly and easy to work with. Pick her and you won't be sorry.

Great tutor who goes the extra mile.

Megan made an effort every week to bring new material that I was interested in learning. She was patient but had appropriate expectations of me. I truly enjoyed working with her.
