About Megan

Hello there!

I would love to help you (or your son/daughter) with science and math!

I am currently a manager of an R&D analytical chemistry group at a pharmaceutical company in Columbus, Ohio. I acquired an ACS Certified Biochemistry degree from Ohio Wesleyan University in 2005 and went on to the PhD Chemistry program at Northwestern University. While at Northwestern, I taught an Advanced Organic Chemistry lab and tutored several students while there. Following my time at Northwestern, I worked as an R&D analytical chemist at Mylan Technologies in Vermont before coming back to Ohio to work at my current company. I am an experienced tutor, particularly with regard to chemistry (including advanced subjects such as organic chemistry, instrumental analysis, and physical chemistry). I am also very comfortable assisting with complementary subjects such as calculus, physics, and biology.

I tutor because I enjoy helping students to succeed. I know that sometimes chemistry and math courses can be barriers toward the end game of a degree, and I want to help reduce that and perhaps even remove altogether.

Fun personal tidbits – I am married as of April 2016. My husband and I are active marathoners – we will be running in our 3rd Boston Marathon together this year! Bryan and I enjoy cooking and traveling. I am also an avid reader – I am a lifelong academic! My most recent favorite book was My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out! I look forward to working with you.

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.

Botany

I majored in ACS Certified Biochemistry and took several biology courses, along with Plant Biology. I am definitely comfortable tutoring in Botany and other plant-related subjects. Please let me know if any other information is required. I am currently employed as a scientist at a pharmaceutical company in Columbus, and I would love to help struggling students to better understand science and math concepts.

Chemistry

I have almost 15 years experience as a chemistry tutor. I started offering chemistry tutoring during college, and I discovered a passion for helping other students. After obtaining a biochemistry undergraduate degree, I taught an Advanced Organic Chemistry lab during my time at Northwestern University. Currently, I am a manager of an analytical pharma research group, but I continue tutoring because of that love of helping young students to succeed!

Microsoft Excel

I use Excel on a daily basis, including advanced functions.

Organic Chemistry

I was a biochemistry major in college. I was a teaching assistant at Northwestern University for an advanced organic lab. I currently work as a scientist at a pharmaceutical company.

Physical Science

I was a biochemistry major in college. I currently am a scientist at a pharma company. I definitely work with this subject every day! :)

Zoology

I majored in ACS Certified Biochemistry and took several biology courses, along with Zoology. I am definitely comfortable tutoring in Zoology and other animal-related subjects. Please let me know if any other information is required.

The session was very helpful! She understands the material, but conveys it in a way that makes it easier to understand than the traditional classroom lecture.
