About Margaret


Bio

I have been teaching in schools (private and public), museums, historical societies, hospitals and libraries for my entire adult life. Recently, I have enjoyed working with a high school student who was attending an on-line high school. She is now at Harvard University and is one of my references. I use a creative, personal approach in order to help all of my students by focusing on their interests as we work together. Patience, a sense of humor and a mature outlook are my personal strengths....

I have been teaching in schools (private and public), museums, historical societies, hospitals and libraries for my entire adult life. Recently, I have enjoyed working with a high school student who was attending an on-line high school. She is now at Harvard University and is one of my references. I use a creative, personal approach in order to help all of my students by focusing on their interests as we work together. Patience, a sense of humor and a mature outlook are my personal strengths.

I enjoy helping students with essays, analysis of literature, school and college applications and language skills. I am also experienced with project based learning.

After graduating from college, I began teaching English, Art and U.S. History in a private school in Connecticut. I then taught the same subjects at a charter school and an alternative high school, both in Massachusetts. I am an avid reader and have been a free-lance writer for quite some time.

If you need any support wrapping up some school work, getting ready for next year, college applications or any other areas where you feel I can help, get in touch with me. I look forward to hearing from you.
