I am a third-year astronomy and physics undergraduate student at the University of Florida with over two full years of freelance and hired tutoring experience and previous years of volunteer tutor experience. I was employed with the University Athletic Association as a physics tutor to student-athletes for a year. I also worked as a university-employed tutor to provide teaching assistance to college algebra courses. In high school I participated in the IB Program and took AP classes as well, so I know how the work load can get for today's students, but I also know how to help! My students always show marked improvement in grades after only a couple weeks with my help! I go out of my way to learn a student's strengths - I have no problem making a full out of myself by singing a song if that's what helps the learning process. Feel free to ask me more about my experience or philosophy!

Megan has helped me get through various classes. From algebra 2 and pre-calculus in high school, to calculus 1 through 3, as well as physics 1 and 2 at the collegiate level. She has always taken my learning preferences into consideration and was patient with me while I figured out concepts and problems. I really appreciate her help and kindness. Between her highly scientific mindset and friendly, approachable demeanor, I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a boost, especially in the fields of math and science!

Really helpful with calculus 2 at UF (where it's pretty tough!) Good at explaining new concepts as well as helping with difficult problems.
