About Megan
Hi, there! My name is Megan and I can't wait to meet you! I've just started teaching private lessons this year, but have previously been a coach, substitute teacher, and in my day to day job I work with and advise college students. I love helping my students see the big picture, break down the necessary steps that will lead them towards success, and help them understand things in a way that makes sense to them.

I went to the College of Wooster (OH) and earned a degree in History in 2008. I also attended George Washington University and earned a masters in Education & Human Development (conc
entration in Higher Education Administration) in 2014.

I'm personable, upbeat, and even a little silly at times. My teaching style is encouraging, communicative, and fun. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I usually do everything I can to help my 3rd grade daughter with her school work. However, I had a pretty big deadline for work coming up, and didn't have the time to devote to help my daughter study for her test on ancient Greece (especially as she kept juxtaposing it with the Roman Empire!) that I would've liked. Enter Megan.

Coordinating the specifics, Megan was super communicative and was punctual, arriving on time for our appointment. My daughter is not always the best at staying engaged for a long period of time, but Megan did a great job of keeping her interested and finding ways to help my daughter retain the information. They ended up making a digital comic book about Greece using Lego characters and a shoe box. I have never seen my daughter so excited about learning. I think I might have to have work deadlines more often!

I recently participated in a service trip to New York City where Megan served as our staff learning partner. She did a wonderful job of guiding us during the service activities and facilitating meaningful reflections following our work. Whenever we spoke with leaders of the organizations we volunteered at, Megan asked questions that furthered our knowledge of the organization and what they do. She was completely engaged in every aspect of the trip, and she made herself available to talk with us about anything we wanted to discuss. She also extended this invitation beyond the trip, and assured us that she would remain available should we ever wish to reach out to her on a professional or personal level. Furthermore, she did an incredible job of guiding our group of 14 through the complicated NYC subway system! Megan is incredibly responsible, mature, and knowledgeable, and I am very grateful to have spent my spring break getting to know her!

Megan was a joy to work with. She came to our home to assist my son who was struggling in his AP English class. Not only did she help him gain a better grasp on the literature (The Once and Future King and some Shakespeare), she worked patiently with him to hone his writing skills and improve upon his study skills. The study and organizational tips Megan offered him have helped him improve in other classes. She was punctual and responsive and my son really enjoyed working with her - it was also a great perk that Megan offered lacrosse-filled study breaks.

About Naomi
I was originally born in Cincinnati, Ohio in a large family (youngest of nine kids), and we all attended Catholic schools... this is where I started learning Spanish. I have studied it (and English Literature) for many years, then eventually won a scholarship to study/travel in Mexico for six months. I returned from Mexico fluent, graduated from college with honors in language and Humanities, then decided to go live in Washington, DC to use that language. I got into corporate training, working 10 years at Fannie Mae as I traveled to 38 of the 50 states to help them train banks on their fina
ncial systems. I later began working in healthcare, and got certified as an interpreter AND as an Instructional Designer. I have designed educational programs ever since at hospitals, schools, educational centers, retail organizations, and with higher education (now at GWU). My hobbies include speaking Spanish, swimming, listening to jazz, playing with my daughter and my beagle.

If you are looking for a Spanish teacher look no further! Naomi is a very skilled and phenomenal teacher. I have taken her class for the last 10 months and I truly can see the progress I have made with her teaching style. She not only has set lessons from the book, but she will bring real-world examples such as food, newspapers, and music! I recently traveled to the Dominican Republic and I was amazed at how easily I was able to hold a conversation. The people there let me know that my Spanish was very good. It was definitely a compliment for me. I believe that a student is only as good as their teacher. Naomi is the right teacher!

Naomi really takes the time to go over with you the culture and language of the people. She setup a lesson plan for me and established goals. I love her teaching style and I feel like I'm taking the time to learn again. If you're looking for a teacher who knows her stuff she is it!

Excellent first lesson. Valentina was very patient but persistent in staying in Russian as much as feasible. I knew a little bit from decades ago and she helped me find the way forward again without embarrassment. I look forward to the next lessons.

Consuelo is such a great teacher! I was so nervous to start taking Spanish lessons because I am extremely shy and haven't been doing so well in my Spanish class. She was very attentive to my needs and quickly tailored her lessons to help me improve my biggest weaknesses. With her help I raised my overall class grade from a C to an A within a month and a half. She is a Spanish language miracle worker! GRACIAS CONSUELO!!!
