About Meghanne

My specific degree is actually a B.A. Classics in English, which merely indicates that I have followed the tradition of scholarship which takes seriously the importance of Classical Studies for today's student. I'm not one for history, but I enjoyed and continue to pursue my studies in the Latin language. I am not currently attending graduate school - while I consider my options, I have an assistantship with a scholar who is currently making the first translations of medieval Psalm commentary into English, which is more exciting and challenging each day.

My tutoring experience as a concerted effort is concentrated within the last year. My final semester at Loyola was spent in our newly-developed Writing Center, which takes appointments from students of any discipline who need assistance with writing style, content, and even the prewriting process, which was certainly a learning experience for me, what with our large Science department - reading a paper in another discipline is quite daunting, but it only meant that I had to rely on the tutee more, and making a real team effort at anything is always a thrill.

I don't hold back in constructive criticism, which is why even my friends come back to me again and again for help. Since graduation, I have helped friends prior to and during their post-degree careers, be it intensive Latin study or test prep. Most recently, I have been working through an extended editing process with a friend who is finishing her M.A. thesis.

I always jump at the chance to work with children and am comfortable with small groups. I understand the necessity to present a joined front in any student's education and insist on solid communication between me and instructors or parents.

My main goal is to make the most comfortable study setting possible for the student - I look forward to learning each student's methods and working with him or her to get over hurdles.
