About Megan

Bonjour!

My name is Megan, and I am currently earning my Master's of Foreign Language from the University of Memphis. Part of my work is tutoring and teaching French to university students. I have my Bachelor's degree in both French and Japanese language studies and have been learning about cultural aspects (dance, cuisine, festivals, religion, and customs) since 2007.

Learning a language should be fun and exciting! I don't believe in boring repetition and continuous memorization. I like games, practicing in conversation, and developing skills that help you in real life situations.

I use quizzes every session to assess where my student falls in their learning process. These are not to discourage you but to challenge you to learn more. I always practice conversation, and I always try to provide multiple explanations of how to use grammar.

I've worked with all ages, from 4-45 years old. I have helped middle school students move forward in their Japanese language, and they are now excelling in their classes. I work hard, but I do expect you to put in effort, too.

I have minored in photography and have had years of experience in and out of a portrait studio. If you want to learn, I want to teach!

Hope to meet you soon!

Megan

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.

French

I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Memphis in Foreign Language and Literature with a concentration in French. I received my Master's in Romance Languages: French, in August 2015. I have tutored many students in French through the University of Memphis and I currently teach all levels of French at a local high school.

Japanese

I earned my Bachelors of Arts degree in Foreign Language with a concentration in Japanese. (I began my studies in 2007)
I have also studied abroad in Nagoya Japan at Nagoya Gakuin University and recently returned for a trip to visit friends and practice my language skills.
I spent a year teaching Japanese at the Japanese Language School of Memphis, with students ranging from age 4 to 50's.
I work with Japanese students at the University of Memphis.

Photography

I have a Minor in Photography from the University of Memphis. I have studied photography for 11 years. I have worked at a portrait studio for 4 years. I continue to improve and practice new skills every week. I can help a student understand the basics of photography, and encourage them in their pursuit as an artist.
