About Megan

I have been tutoring for almost seven 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!

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 am able to tutor in English (Learning as a second language, High School L.A. Creative Writing, Composing an Essay, Research). I am currently a facilitator of Sustained Silent Reading (it is called D.E.A.R. at the elementary school level). Reading and writing are essential skills for academic success and as an adult in any career!

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.

GED

I have tutored 2 young adults in preparation for completion of their GED exam.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have a lot of experience with PowerPoint on a Mac or PC. PowerPoints are a great tool to supplement your presentations for work or school.

Reading

I have taken several courses on reading in effective instruction and have tutored K-5 students in reading comprehension.

Spanish

Please see my "profile" for description.

Vocabulary

I have always been a vocabulary nut. I never went so far as to read the entire dictionary, but would definitely be able to help a child or English Language Learner strengthen their vocab.

Great Tutor — Megan is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor who clearly has a passion for what she does. She makes learning Spanish fun. She'll find extra work to coincide with my daughters school Spanish lesson to broaden her skills. She always gives me a review of their lesson and I'll again get a email on what to work on. My daughter looks forward to her time with Megan and the lessons are benefiting ...
