About Megan

I have taught classroom math at almost every level between pre-algebra and calculus, including a foray into statistics, and my work as a graduate student in math education has been incorporated into a university course, but my true educational enjoyment comes from one-on-one tutoring.

My goal as a tutor is to inspire confidence in students and enable them to independently resolve math problems, even the application word-problems that are emphasized by the latest state requirements. I incorporate procedural practice as well as problem-solving tasks that require deeper thinking in order to help students develop a solid understanding of material. I also include vocabulary work to improve students' mathematical communication.

With experience teaching math to students in middle school, high school, and college, I recognize the discouragement that comes from years of math struggle as well as the misconceptions that students often bring to the secondary math subjects. I endeavor to know my students as well-rounded individuals and to make math more enjoyable and clear by relating it to their preferred activities.

I look forward to meeting you and working together to improve your math capabilities!

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught both Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1 in junior high and high school classrooms so that I understand both the requisite skills to succeed in Algebra as well as the common pitfalls that students face in the subject.

Algebra 2

I have taught Algebra 2, as well as the courses that follow, to high school classes. I have an in-depth understanding of the material and can help students to not only perform the procedures well, but also to understand the concepts.

Calculus

As a college student I professionally tutored other college students in Calculus 1 and 2. Since then I have continued to tutor students in AP as well as college calculus. I thoroughly understand the conceptual basis of calculus and can help students to make sense of it as well.

Precalculus

I taught pre-calculus at a high school and have tutored both high school and college students in the subject. I enjoy the subject because it draws many mathematical concepts together. I also recognize that the subject challenges students as it transitions them to a new tier of mathematical thinking. My tutoring style helps students recognize the connections between what they know and what they're learning, which in turn builds self-confidence so that they can learn more.

SAT Math

I received a personal score of 700 on the SAT math tests when I took them as a teenager. I am a certified math teacher and so highly qualified in the math content.

Spanish

I studied Spanish at Brigham Young University in Utah and spent time living in Yucatan, Mexico as part of the program. I lived among immigrants as a missionary in California for 18 months and spoke Spanish with people from all over Latin America.

Statistics

I have taught statistics at both the high school and college level. I have a thorough understanding of the theory as well as the applications of statistics problems.
