About Megan

I have just moved to Rochester to be with my new husband after completing my teaching certificate in Wisconsin. I will be teaching Spanish at a local high school in the fall. I love working with young children and adult students. I think the language learning process should be fun and stress-free. I can't wait to learn from each other!

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.

English

I am qualified to teach English because I have degrees in print and broadcast journalism. I also have a teaching license in teaching English as a second language. I love reading and writing, and I love to teach you to love it too!

ESL/ESOL

I have completed my teaching certificate in ESL. I have volunteered as a conversation partner to Spanish-speaking students for two years. I have also gone through training on one-on-one tutoring through a community college.

Grammar

I have bachelor's and master's degrees in journalism, which requires an advance command of English grammar. I also have worked with students of all ages, teaching grammar and editing their papers.

Spanish

I started learning Spanish in middle school, which was 16 years ago. I studied Spanish throughout high school and college as well. I have a minor in Spanish and a teaching certificate in teaching Spanish. I also have studied abroad in Spain and Costa Rica, and have many friends I speak Spanish with.

TOEFL

I am licensed in teaching ESL to all ages. I have tutored about 5 others in similar exams. They have told me the time we spent together was helpful.

Writing

My qualifications in writing include a bachelor's and a Master's degree in journalism, as well as experience as a newspaper reporter. I also have a teaching license in English as a second language which has allowed me to teach writing to students of all ages. I like making messages clear and concise. In addition, I find joy in fixing grammatical errors!
