About Megan

Hi. My name is Megan, and I would love to tutor you or your child. I graduated from Columbia University and have been a Broward County, Florida teacher for 16 years. I am also a National Board Certified teacher. I teach middle school in Coral Springs, Florida, but have experience with students from elementary to college. I am enthusiastic, patient, and committed to helping you or your child succeed. I am open to tutoring in your home, a library or other public place, but I also conduct online tutoring; I am flexible for whatever meets your needs. I have a wide variety of strategies to meet your child s learning style and preference.

Although I was an Art History major and currently teach World History and Civics, I have always loved math. I tutor students in Algebra, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, and Geometry with great success. My background in the humanities gives me the extra tools to communicate concepts clearly and in a way students can relate to, especially students who believe they "aren't good at math".

As a mom to a 5th grader, I have experienced every level of elementary education first hand. I am well versed in Common Core and what is expected at each grade level. I implement multiple methods to ensure that students who are struggling in reading and/or math attain the skills needed to meet and exceed grade level expectations.

My personal love of learning translates into a positive tutoring experience. I focus on finding strategies to meet the student's personal learning style while providing encouragement and knowledge.

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.

Algebra 1

I have successfully tutored Algebra students for the past 10 years. I understand the curriculum and use a variety of strategies to ensure learning. My students report that they gain confidence in tackling problems, and that their grades improved as a result.

American History

I have taught history for 16 years in Broward County, Florida. My love of history was sparked growing up in Maryland. I was surrounded by historical sites which my family visited regularly. I have toured historical homes, battlefields, and museums from Maine to Florida and various places west. I bring my experiences to the classroom and to tutoring sessions with students.

Art History

I graduated from Columbia University with a BA in Art History. I can provide assistance with study skills specific to art history and reviewing and editing written assignments and term papers.

Common Core

I have been a teacher and department chair for 16 years. When Common Core began, I attended many workshops and participated in professional learning communities that focused on Common Core. I have applied Common Core to my classroom on a daily basis.

Political Science

I have taught Civics for the past 5 years. I have also taught World History, which includes the history of government and politics.

Social Studies

I am certified to teach middle and high school Social Studies in the state of Florida. I have taught Social Studies for 16 years, including World History, American History, Geography, and Civics.

Study Skills

I have taught middle school for 16 years. Students have difficulty transitioning from elementary school and one or two teachers to middle school with six teachers. I have helped numerous students organize their time, folders, and study skills. I teach students how to study, especially for multiple subjects. I teach Cornell notes so that students have an easy reference from which to study.

Volleyball

I played varsity volleyball in high school. I have coached girls volleyball for 7 years, and currently coach boys volleyball.

World History

I graduated from Columbia University with a BA in Art History. I taught World Geography for 7 years, and I have taught World History for the past 6 years. I can assist with study skills specific to history, as well as reviewing and editing written assignments and term papers.
