About Meghan

I'm a Temple University alumni, Philadelphia native, and certified teacher. I studied early childhood education and did my intern hours in the Philadelphia school district where I became familiar with the curriculum and expectations for teachers. Shortly after graduation I took a position at Kaplan International as an English instructor for students learning English as a foreign language. Here I've practiced my skills at direct English instruction in the areas of grammar, reading, listening, and speaking. At Kaplan, I've taught levels from Intermediate to Advanced and have worked with lower level students as well. Last year, I took a break from Kaplan to move to South Korea for a year to teach English in a private school. In South Korea, I worked with four year old students with no English abilities and completed a 12 month school year with the same students. At the end of the year, the students were conversational and were on a comparable level to students to native speakers of the same age.

During my past few years teaching, I've gained a lot of experience, but I am still always looking for new teaching techniques to keep my students interested and learning.

As an English teacher, I try to each of my lessons interesting and related to the real world. I use an integrated approach to teaching so that students can practice with real world materials, but them break them down so they're comprehensible. For example, at the the beginning of a lesson with a student, we will often read an an article or short paragraph with the targeted grammar. After we practice reading we will then look at unknown vocabulary in the article and work to understand the meaning. Following the vocabulary we will break down the grammar in both it's rules and uses, and then reread the same paragraph with a greater understanding in how it all fits together.

I'm a young and passionate teacher that truly enjoys seeing each student succeed. Whether it's online or in person, I give each student the individual attention they need in order to improve.
