I have tutored students from preschool through 11th grade in math, language arts, science, and social studies. Since graduating from Buena Vista University with my Elementary Education degree and Reading Endorsement, I have been working as a literacy and bus transfer paraeducator. This position has allowed me to utilize and develop my skills in reading instruction. I have worked alongside two Title 1 teachers on a daily basis, teaching K-4 small group reading and assessing students with informal running records, Fountas & Pinnell guided reading leveling, and DIBELS. In the bus transfer duties of my job, I have been able to develop skills in resolving conflicts with students in order to maintain safety.

Patient tutor!

Soft and gentle with my daughter! My daughter loves to practice Guitar! The tutor has a great attitude with smiling. It inspires my daughter. She is knowledgeable to coach my daughter. Thank you! Best Regards. Barthelom

Barthelom, 8 lessons with Meg

Knowledgeable tutor

Meg is great! Very knowledgeable and organized! She has a lot of patience and loves her job! It’s more than a year she is teaching my son and he has significantly improved his grades.

AYDIN, 179 lessons with Meg

Very patient despite technical difficulties

Meg is teaching me about timing right now, which is something I didn’t know about from previous instructors. I am learning at a slow pace which is extremely important for my learning process.

Annette, 9 lessons with Meg

very good class

Megan was great! Very professional, directly assessed the level to identify the best learning method and approval to make it relevant but also entertaining for my child. Great!

VERY HELPFUL TUTOR

MEG IS SMART, PATIENT, AND FRIENDLY. SHE TAUGHT ME TO TUNE MY GUITAR FOR FIRST TIME AND I LEARNED THREE NEW NOTES TO PRACTICE. I AM BOOKING ANOTHER LESSON FOR NEXT WEEK

We had a good review of writing skills during summer sessions. Meg has been very patient and provides engaging topics in tutoring sessions.

Sandra, 10 lessons with Meg

Great teacher

This was my sons first lesson with Meg and he really enjoyed the lesson. She quickly found his weakness and jumped right on it. We look forward to more lessons with her

Latavia, 1 lesson with Meg

Great teacher

She is really patient and helpful with me, but the features are a little hard for me, but she is really really good.

Lam, 1 lesson with Meg

Wonderful tutor!

Meg helped my daughter study for the SSAT which she will be taking in the next week. She is insightful and knowledgeable and I know that my daughter will be well prepared for this exam. She is able to accommodate my daughter's busy schedule and even had time to squeeze in two tutor lessons in the same day. We will be using her for my son as well. Thanks Meg!
