About Megan

I am a former journalist with an MA in that field. I also used to be an English tutor at a local college. I am more familiar with the needs of college students, however I am open to all students. I can help with basic writing, essay composition, ESL, grammar, spelling and vocabulary. I may be able to help with reading, but that depends; writing is more of my thing.

I am firm yet approachable with my students. I don't sugarcoat anything but I am also not demanding. However, I am like this more toward college students and more easygoing toward younger students. I'll ask what an assignment requires and try to get a student to brainstorm in order to construct an essay. If they are struggling, I try to talk to them in order to have that lightbulb go off in their head.

When it comes to ESL, I explain how quirky the English language can be when it comes to spelling and vocabulary. Its fun and I hope the student can have fun too.

As for grammar, spelling and vocabulary, I am straightforward with my approach.

Basically, I try my best to explain how writing is done so the student could start to develop confidence in their writing abilities. When I tutored college students for a year and a half, I had several come back to thank me for helping them get an A or B on their essay. I'm always glad to help others succeed!

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.

Writing

I've tutored ESL students who were either at high school or college level for about 15 months. I've helped such students better understand the English language by being stern in my tutoring. Most of those I tutored improved their English writing skills under my tutelage.
