About Meghan

I love teaching adults and helping them reach their goals.

Here is some information about my educational and teaching background. I first graduated in 1997 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. Then, I taught grades 1 through 4 for six years. Next, I began a Master's program in TESOL at OSU. After I graduated with my Master's degree from Ohio State, I began teaching ESOL to students from the pre-literate level to highly advanced at the Columbus Literacy Council. Then I began teaching Advanced ESOL for Tolles Career and Technical Center and this is where I am currently teaching. I have been teaching ESL to adults for 10 years.

I would love to work with any student who is willing to communicate goals and work hard.

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.

English

I teach English as a second language.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught English to Speakers of Other Languages in a foreign country. I have a Master's degree in Language, Literacy, and Culture from The Ohio State University. I have taught ESOL to adults of varying abilities for 6 years. I have attended and learned a great deal from the Ohio TESOL Conference for the past 6 years.

Grammar

I have a solid understanding of the grammatical components of the English language.

Reading

I have been teaching reading and a variety of reading strategies to ESOL students for the past six years. Prior to that, I taught reading to first through fourth graders.

Spelling

I am an excellent speller, and I have a strong knowledge of the spelling patterns of the English language. I have experience teaching spelling, and I have several resources for helping students become more proficient in this subject.

Vocabulary

I love to teach vocabulary and I have taken a course in vocabulary teaching strategies. I believe the most effective way to teach vocabulary is within a particular subject the student is studying.

Writing

When teaching writing, I first like to do an assessment to determine what skills the student already has. Then I figure out what the student wants to achieve in writing. I just completed a course entitled "Building Better Writers." I have a variety of ideas and strategies for teaching writing.

Great Tutor for ESL

We meet at Worthington library every time. She introduced me to the library because it is located at the middle of each other's place, and I really like that place. Every time she reserves the study room for our lesson. The room is quiet and bright, I think it's very good for tutoring. The first time, she prepared some conversation practicing books so I could choose what I wanted to do. And she
