About Megan

After graduating with distinction in the field of mathematics, I worked for 25+ years as a financial analyst and auditor for Fortune 100 companies. During that time, I worked with people in a variety of backgrounds. I found that the simplest explanations work best for building understanding.

Five years ago, I began homeschooling my son because I saw him losing his love of learning. Homeschooling has shown me how important it is to meet the learner where they currently are and build from there. Math needs to be relevant to the learner to help foster learning. Also, if the learner is struggling to understand a concept, the instructor needs to find the right "key" to "unlock" understanding.

My focus is on developing competency, confidence while working towards mastery.

Please contact me with questions or requests for more information.

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 always loved algebra and I try to share that enthusiasm with my students. If they don't love it by the end of our time together, they at least have mastery and confidence in their algebraic abilities. Algebra is manageable when it is made relevant and meaningful to students. I have spent the last three years working with students to help them be successful with their studies in school.

Algebra 2

I grew up in New York State and we were required to take Regents Exams. I passed my trigonometry Regents exam with a perfect score. Although not everyone uses trigonometry and algebra 2 everyday, the core fundamentals of mathematics still hold. Once you have those fundamentals, it is just a matter of applying them to higher order mathematics.

Elementary Math

I have worked with students from elementary to high school to help them become more capable and confident with math. I have direct experience with ADHD students.

Geometry

We encounter geometry in our lives every day. We just may not be aware of all the geometry that we encounter. My approach to teaching geometry includes proofs, hands on projects and problem sets.

Homeschool

I have homeschooled my 15 year old son for the last five years. I have taught ELA, science, social studies and math at the elementary and high school level, individually and in co-op classes. I try to meet my students where they are and build from there. For me, it is important to make the lessons relevant to the students in order to facilitate learning.

Microsoft Excel

I learned Excel in college. During my career as a financial analyst and auditor, Excel was the primary tool that I used to complete my job, answer analytical questions, budget, and forecast. While I don't use Excel on a daily basis anymore, I still use it in my volunteer and personal activities.

Prealgebra

I have an MBA in Finance and International Business from New York University and 25+ years experience in Finance with Fortune 100 companies. I have 5 years of experience tutoring elementary and high school students in math, including pre-algebra, algebra and geometry.
