About Megan

As an educator and mentor, I have ten years facilitating both instructional and leadership roles within the K-12 sector and in various educational contexts, including charter, public, urban, and international settings.

I have developed and implemented College & Career Readiness Standards for secondary English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum and College Board standards for AP English Language and AP Literature curricula.

Currently, I am a curriculum consultant and ELA instructor for adult education students in Rochester Hills, MI. I have taught AP English Language, AP English Literature, and AP U.S. History, in addition to English 9/10, Visual Art and various arts & humanities electives. I have worked collaboratively with fellow teachers to implement interdisciplinary units/lessons and to foster best practices for critical thinking skill development across a wide range of core subjects.

I have aligned ELA curricula to improve student achievement and to assist students in identifying potential career pathways and internship placements. I developed resources, facilitated counseling, and provided academic support to improve academic performance and to prepare students in their AP, ACT, and SAT exams.

As a school-based accreditation committee member for the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), I assessed secondary ELA pedagogical practices and implemented methods for improving professional development initiatives. As a result of this role, I have a working knowledge of national public education standards and benchmarks. As a student data analyst, I have evaluated assessments, including formative and summative, as well as English language proficiency records.

Nearly 10 years of combined English Language Arts (ELA) and English Language Learner (ELL) instruction, as well as ACT, SAT, AP, E2020, and ESL English Reading and Writing Exam Instruction

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.

ACT English

I have five years of experience teaching AP English Composition, AP English Language, and ACT/SAT Exam Prep Courses.

American History

I have 3 years experience teaching U.S. History and AP U.S. History.

ESL/ESOL

Public Speaking

I have taught public speaking courses in the secondary English context for over five years. In assessing public speaking I use various performance-based assessments. I provide students with effective examples of famous speeches in order for them to "model" for their own speech writing and performing. I evaluate content, as well as pitch, tone, volume and non-verbal communication like gestures and body language. I am a curriculum consultant and ELA instructor for adult education students in Rochester Hills, MI.

She is awesome

My English skill is not good, especially speaking is bad. She teaches me with passion. I must prepare for the class or do some homework. But I think she is a great teacher.
