About Meghavi

I am Certified in K-8 Elementary Education and ESOL. I have a Master's in TESOL. I taught first grade for two years, and I also tutored on the side. Currently I am an Elementary ELD teacher. I will be teaching mainstream once again in the Fall.

I try to incorporate games and art into my lessons. I am very patient and get to know my students to see what methods work best. I also help with homework as needed.

For handwriting practice, I incorporate the Draw, Write, Now Series. I find that learning takes more than rote memorization and games give students a chance to practice their methods and grasp what they are learning in multiple ways. My goal is to make your children succeed and grow.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have both a California and Oregon Multiple Subjects credential in Elementary Education. I have passed all licensing examinations required by the State. I taught first grade for two years. Due to budget cuts, I am currently substituting K-5 while I try to get my own classroom again.


I have a Masters in Teaching English as a Second Language. In addition, I have an ESL endorsement as part of my teaching license.

While in college, I tutored ESL extensively to several international students, which continued after graduation. My student teaching assignment was a 7th grade Language Arts/ESL classroom.

While teaching in California, I provided daily ESL instruction to my ELL learners. Currently, I substitute teach frequently in ESL classroom settings.


I taught first grade for two years and currently substitute teach. In first grade, especially, phonics was and is an integral part of our daily instruction. I have a strong background in phonics and phonemic awareness instruction.
