About Meghan


Bio

I have a Bachelors Degree in English and a certificate in French. While studying abroad in Paris, as an extracurricular activity, I taught English as a Second Language to kindergarten children. Had I not chosen to attend law school, I would have gone on to a doctoral program in English Literature. My love of reading and writing did not disappear due to my decision; on the contrary, having to read and write on topics that did not always interest me forced me to evaluate what I truly loved. ...

I have a Bachelors Degree in English and a certificate in French. While studying abroad in Paris, as an extracurricular activity, I taught English as a Second Language to kindergarten children. Had I not chosen to attend law school, I would have gone on to a doctoral program in English Literature. My love of reading and writing did not disappear due to my decision; on the contrary, having to read and write on topics that did not always interest me forced me to evaluate what I truly loved. As a result, while in school and as an outlet, I delved into creative writing. And when I was not reading countless pages on case law, I was reading novels by my favorite author, Ken Follett.

School assignments are not always interesting. We all know this. However, finding what interests us and using those things to make what is being taught more palatable and interesting is the key to learning. If a child has a difficult time reading, and certainly if the subject matter is less than pleasing to him or her, we start with a topic that is appealing to the child. Let's read about that for a moment. Is she or he engaged now? Probably. If a child is having a difficult time and despises the topic, we are not going to get anywhere. But if we can take what is difficult and apply it to something that is appealing, she or he can focus on attacking the more difficult opponent (the task of reading generally) in a nicer "setting." The same concept applies to writing.

I would like to help students become their better selves. While I have no interest in being a teacher, one on one tutoring allows a child or teen to have the ability to express his or herself in a way that she or he would not have otherwise been able or willing in a classroom. Tutoring opens the door to not only education, but also mentorship.
