About Meghan

Hello! My name is Meghan, and I am a summa cum laude graduate with a bachelors degree in History with a double major in Political Science. I am a recent Spring 2015 graduate and have two years of professional tutoring experience as well as tutoring throughout my high school and undergraduate careers.

I can help with lower levels in practically any subject including algebra, geometry, biology, geology, and French. In higher levels I can teach effectively in most and thoroughly in history, social studies, government, philosophy, English, and writing. I particularly love to teach communication skills such as speech and debate and writing. I am also highly qualified as a writer and researcher having won summa cum laude on my honors thesis for History and a travel grant to do original archival research in Senegal. I can easily translate these skills and teach them to other students. However, my best feature as a tutor is my adept ability to help others learn how to learn, learn thoroughly, and love to learn through fun, engaging, and creative lessons.

I have been a k-12 teacher's daughter all my life and, as she is amazing, she has imparted on me how to teach all levels, all my life. I have been her official teaching assistant since I was a Junior in high school and have graded her students' papers and work helping them to grow with her guidance. As a teachers daughter I also help others learn, often without realizing it until after the conversation has finished. I understand the importance of a quality education and one-on-one guidance. I have a passion for helping students reach answers quasi-independently so they feel confident and ready to tackle more. I want to set students up for success in thinking and analyzing through confidence and skills, not make them dependent on a tutor all their lives.

I look forward to helping as many students as I can and I look forward to working with you.

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.

ACT English

ACT English is a difficult item to prepare for. I achieved a high score without preparation due to my experience in writing and French grammar, which helped me understand English grammar. However, most kids need intensive help (just as I received my whole life from my mother) due to the complicated nature of being tested on and truly understanding a subject. I know how to make English interactive and fun and how to score well on the ACT test. I want to help your students with the same.

ACT Reading

Reading has been taught to most students for years. However, reading in concentration with analysis and content understanding has not been. Also, many students struggle with knowing which of all the answers is the best. Due to my own experience with the ACT and reading I know how to teach students test and reading skills to help them comprehend content faster and do better on tests.

Algebra 1

I know better than anyone how challenging math can be. Although I was brilliant at it self-confidence issues wore me down in Highschool. I want to help your kids avoid this vicious cycle by showing them through teaching them and guiding them to the answers how truly wonderful and intelligent they are. I have been working with Algebra tutoring for a year and love it. My students understand the material and grow more confident every day!

American History

As a major in history I have an intense passion for the subject and know how to teach it with flare and depth. I will help your student(s) develop a love of the material due to truly teaching the subject rather than just feeding rote memorization into their minds. History is a living breathing field and I would love to introduce this to your students.


Biology should never be boring. However for most students it is, and it is often far more challenging due to teachers not understanding learning styles or children's needs. No child is incapable of loving and learning biology. It is truly a living subject that is fascinating and I would love to help your student on an individual basis on exploration of this subject.


Entering college I was looking into a prospective major in English, until of course I realized I would gain just as much argumentative/expository writing skills in History as it is quite rigorous in my field. I also took many creative writing classes and stood out. I have always stood out in writing and thus know how to perform exceptionally.

However, I am also fantastic at teaching writing and language to kids from first grade into college. I can often aide students and teachers higher than me. I tutored my mother's kids in her 5th - 12th grade classes on how to improve their expository writing skills, their use of language, as well as how to write with more ease and enjoyment.

Due to how many writing classes I have taken and students I have taught I am exceptional, and my own mother who is a fantastic K-12 teacher is blown away by the extent of my ability to teach this specific skill.

I also am fully aware of how important analysis of literature and arguments are in terms of general language arts and reading and have always entwined this in my writing lessons.

Political Science

I have a BA in History and Political Science from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I have taken numerous courses on comparative democracy, democratization, comparative politics, political philosophy, ethics, international law, international relations, constitutional law, the American political system, African politics, and other various related topics. I have also tutored this subject extensively with fellow classmates as well as students. My methods are to teach the basic facts and then encourage conversation concerning political philosophy, ideology, systems, laws, as well as foster proper writing skills.

Public Speaking

I have been acting since I was 3 years old am accustomed to public speaking. I did acting 8th-12th grade. As well as speech and debate 9-12 and am going to try out for mock trial soon. I have confidence and have been taught how to speak by geniuses therefore I can do it as well.


Reading is fundamental to every subject. But if not taught right, with patience, skill, and imagination to excite children, they will never learn to their best ability. I love to teach children, "pre"teens, and teenagers reading, reading comprehension, vocabulary and more. I would love to help your children reach their best abilities.

SAT Reading

SAT reading and writing is not just about the test. The reason they have the SAT is to test a students ability to perform in college. Thus I focus on building the raw skills that students will need for the rest of their lives. I do this through some focus on the test goals and aims of course, as well test taking skills and tips for all (especially the nervous test taker). However, as a tutor of reading and writing for four years and as a TA for my mother who worked on grading and helping her students as well the ability to do well on an SAT test is not only knowing how to take the test but having mastery of the subject. I have the experience, skill, and knowledge to offer your children success in this area!

Social Studies

I am major in history and political science. Because of these I must also be familiar with anthropology culture and geography. I am very skilled at teaching these and have much education in them. These are the subjects of social studies within k-12 education.


I have taken sociology of gender as a college student in a 200 level class. As a history major many articles we study are often on the basis of sociology and by sociologists. I understand the basic premises and am a fast learner in the subject.

Study Skills

As the daughter of a k-12 teacher I have had my own private tutor for years. She has successfully taught me how to study and how to teach study skills. She has helped me understand styles of learning and how that relates to study skills. I teach this every time I tutor as I hope to foster independent learning and study skills.


Writing is a complicated process to master. No student can truly go it alone. I have been a talented writer since I was nine, nevertheless, my AP European History and AP English Language and Composition teachers drilled better writing into me. Now I have the growing skills to teach kids grammar, style, processes, and tools to keep in their growing toolbox and use for the rest of their lives. Writing is fundamental to skilled communication in any subject, I want to help kids communicate to the best of their abilities.
