About Megan

I have an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from Iowa State University. I graduated with a 3.2 GPA, then pursued my master's degree in Agricultural and Biological Systems Engineering, graduating with a 4.0 GPA. As an upperclassman student, I tutored freshman and sophomore students in mechanical engineering. I am comfortable tutoring subjects such as heat and mass transfer, dynamics, statics, mechanics of materials, etc.

I love helping others learn the tough subjects, like math and science. As your tutor, we will find real-world applications for each topic, so that you not only learn the subject, you learn how to apply it! This helps with learning initially, and has been proven to also help with retention of a subject.

I apply, use, and teach math and science every day working as a full-time engineer. I enjoy helping people learn subjects, especially ones that intimidate them in the beginning. We will work together to figure out the best ways you learn, and I will adapt my teaching strategies to those to help you succeed. I've even got some great science jokes!

As your tutor, I will work with you to develop a plan for your success. We will discuss which areas/subjects/concepts you are struggling with and work from there. I will make sure you have a good foundation, and we can start as basic as you need to, in order for you to master your courses. We can plan a learning schedule to follow a semester course, or tackle each subject/problem as it arises. I'd love to help you learn and excel as a student, specifically in the math and science fields! Please contact me to learn more about my qualifications and to begin your tutoring sessions today!

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.

Chemistry

I have a degree in BS Biosystems Engineering, BS Mechanical Engineering, MS Ag & Biosystems Engineering.

Organic Chemistry

I completed 2 organic chemistry courses while pursuing my undergraduate degrees. I have a biological systems engineering degree, with which I use organic chemistry in my full-time job as an engineer with an agricultural company. I will work with students to approach learning organic chemistry like basic math problems (A+B=C), and we will work together on repetition to internalize the subject.
