About Megan

My name is Megan and I am currently enrolled as a senior at North Carolina State University, graduating a semester early in December 2015. I am a major in Animal Science and a minor in Psychology, working to eventually attend veterinary school. I am a member of the Honors program, a member of the Society of Research and Inquiry, the Sustainability Committee, and the Society of Public Scholarship. I have been working since the age of thirteen and most of my recent jobs have applied to the field of animal science, therefore, the sciences are my specialty. My teaching style is hands-on, utilizing me as a demonstrator or model, and allowing the student to apply that knowledge on their own. I appreciate questions from the student, curiosity, and student participation. I utilize real world examples to exhibit the significance of the topic and encourage interest and passion in the acquisition of knowledge.

My first tutoring experience came from the Learnworks program that focused on helping elementary school students that were referred to the community center for behavioral problems, learning disorders, and trouble with English. I spent over ten hours a week for two years in high school tutoring and leading the Cooking and Drama clubs. I worked with the same third and fourth grade students each day, and helped bring their grades up. In college, I have privately tutored college students in both English and Biology courses and helped many friends with their academics. I also worked for a tutoring company while at North Carolina State University and tutored math. The courses I tutor include: Biology, Microbiology, Chemistry, Animal Science courses, Anthropology, English courses, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Economics, Public Speaking, and Psychology courses. I am also excellent with SAT preparation, helping to bring up a friend's overall score by 400 points. My score on the SAT was 2280, doing best on the writing and reading. Overall, I am a well-rounded intellectual with social skills and a passion for helping students.

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.

Public Speaking

I took COM 110 while at North Carolina State University, which is the Public Speaking course. I obtained an A in the course, and tutored my Chinese friend in COM 110 the following semester, also aiding in improving her English. I have a strong English background, obtaining a 5 on the AP English test and an A in IB English in high school. I also have spoken at many events, and served as a Culture to Culture Ambassador, which is similar to an Orientation Leader for International students. This requires public speaking skills, especially since not all of the students are fully proficient at English.
