About Megan


Bio

I began my educational career over fifteen years ago as a college-level French and Spanish tutor. I have taught students from age three through adult in various areas, including English, French, Spanish, math, science, social studies, and test prep (in-person and online). I have also helped students with college essays and consultations. My tutoring business has ranked in the top 5 for "Best Tutoring Service" in 2020, 2021, and 2022 in the Free Lace-Star's "Best of the Burg."

I have taught students from age three through adult in various areas, including English, French, Spanish, math, science, social studies, and test prep (in-person and online).

My tutoring business has ranked in the top 5 for "Best Tutoring Service" in 2020, 2021, and 2022 in the Free Lace-Star's "Best of the Burg."

Professionally, I have presented on pedagogy and learning styles. These include "Vocabulary Instruction for Gifted Learners" at the 2017 National Curriculum Network Conference and "Language with the Five Senses" at the 2019 American Association of Teachers of French Conference. In July 2020, I was a guest featured in Book Smart Prep's Blog, the Cool Cat Teacher podcast in September 2020, and a guest on The Lisa Show in August 2021.

In the fall of 2021, I published my first two children's books focusing on handling emotions in positive ways. In June 2022, I released my third book and am working on my fourth and fifth children's books, which I hope to release by the late summer or early fall of 2022.

I would love the opportunity to work with your family. If you feel I am a good fit for you or your student, please feel free to contact me. Thank you!

Outstanding!!

My daughter is in 6th grade and has ADD she struggles with retaining info and needed someone patient. Megan was a godsend because fir the first time looking at schoolwork my daughter was engaged and excited to find out she was capable of not failing her science project. Megan gave her ideas, and talked her through them. She was very patient and my daughter who is very she felt comfortable immediately. Btw- she wants Megan to tutor her on every subject! Lol Thanks do much! Will definitely hire her again.
