About Megan

I began my career in higher education, working with high schoolers and college students trying to enter and remain successful in their choice of post secondary institution. In the summer of 2009, I taught reading to prekindergarten through high school aged students in Colorado and Oklahoma. Additionally, I've co-led a girl scout troop of 6th and 7th graders for the past 2 years. I taught rising 3rd graders in the summer of 2014 and spent the 2014-15 school year teaching an amazing group of 4th graders. Last year I taught an active group of 2nd graders.

In all of my work, I've loved helping scholars learn something new, gain building blocks for important learning, and enjoying learning! I think learning should be fun, and love to incorporate lots of different activities to engage our brains.

I am familiar with Colorado and Common Core standards used in the majority of schools.

I love to read and have some great resources to share while tutoring. I am also familiar with Colorado and Common Core standards used in the majority of schools.

I have a great resource to help kids pick what they're practicing to engage in handwriting practice! I am also familiar with Colorado and Common Core standards used in the majority of schools.

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.
