About Megan

My desire to learn and teach has remained constant over the years. I find teaching to be one of the most rewarding parts of my life, and I love to see my students excel and feel confident in their abilities! I know that my extensive teaching background and passion for math, college test prep, and the sciences would make me an excellent candidate as your tutor. In fact, I was named 1 of the top 250 wyzant tutors in the country for 2015!

I graduated from UCSD (BS in Physiology and Neuroscience) with top honors of Summa Cum Laude (top 1% with a GPA of 3.948). During my undergraduate years, I mastered math and biology classes and received more A+'s than A's. I also spent my time as a teacher's assistant for 3 biology courses covering metabolic biochemistry, basic biology (BILD 2), and mammalian physiology. As a teacher's assistant, I taught 1 hr sections using notes and practice problems that I had created.

Later, I obtained a Master's in Biomedical Science from CSU and graduated with a 4.0. During this program, I spent time as a teacher's assistant for a human anatomy course and worked in a research lab on campus.

Between my years at UCSD and CSU, I worked for a top test preparatory company for 2 years. I received over 100hrs of training so that I could teach the following classes: ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, and MCAT. Currently, I only tutor the ACT and SAT for which I have developed my own test taking strategies that have proven to be very successful. I recently had a student receive a perfect score (36) on the ACT along with multiple other students in the 30's. Other students have shown up to a 33% increase in their overall scores and up to a 14 point increase in one subject. Note, these improvements greatly depend on the student's willingness and drive to succeed. I do not take preparation lightly and I will assign homework! If you are interested in ACT tutoring, then I would be more than happy to further discuss what the sessions entail. I recommend you start tutoring at least 2 months prior to your desired ACT test date.

Please don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions or would like to start tutoring since I book up quickly!!

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.

Study Skills

With 10+ years of tutoring under my belt, along with my own experience in college, I have learned many successful study skills that are applicable to all classes. On top of that, I also worked for a national test prep agency where I was certified to teach: GRE, GMAT, ACT, SAT, and the Biology section of the MCAT. I have over 100 hours of training with this agency. The training taught me study skills for all types of subjects, tests, and learning styles.

Megan is great!! — Megan worked with our 16 yr old son, Sam, this past year to prepare him for the ACT. He scored a 28 on the first practice test before tutoring with Megan. They worked hard for 3-4 months, and Megan was fantastic! She was able to quickly assess Sam's strengths and challenges and had strategies to significantly improve his scores. She is very professional and ethical, and she is a great teacher! By ...
