About Meagan

Hi! I'm Meagan S. and I've been tutoring for as long as I can remember. In elementary school, I tutored kindergarten students in reading comprehension. In high school, I was a Teaching Assistant for a Junior Level Humanities course and delivered lectures, wrote curriculum, and held after school sessions in thesis writing. While a student at St. Edward's University, I was a Writing and Liberal Arts tutor in the Academic Support Programs. I assisted students from all ages and backgrounds in subjects such as Capstone, Literature and Philosophy, American Dilemmas, Public Speaking and Rhetoric and Composition. Since graduating with my Bachelor's in English Literature, I have been tutoring with Austin Community College. I have also just completed a Spring semester as a full-time tutor with Sylvan Learning, where I worked with seventh grade girls at an all-girls Leadership Academy. There, I offered supplemental and primary instruction in reading, writing, and test strategies.

I love connecting with students and seeing people exceed their own expectations. I have a martial arts background (oh yeah, I also taught children's martial arts!) and in the years it took to get my Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, I have learned the value of discipline. I believe that pursuing an education is an act of discipline that is incredibly rewarding and validating. I like seeing students become empowered through their education.

Besides teaching, I love writing fiction, cooking, reading, and drawing.

I am highly adaptable. I can adapt my teaching to best suit the learning style of my students. I have a knowledge of Literature, but can connect lessons to history, popular culture, and more. I try to keep all material relevant and meaningful.

Not only can I help improve test and essay scores, I can facilitate a genuine appreciation for reading and writing that some teachers don't cultivate. If you're interested in setting up a lesson, please contact me. I can't wait to meet you!
