I am a fourth-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 fool 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!+ Read More
Analyzed the potential of the upcoming "Large Synoptic Survey Telescope" by running tests on its programmed systems, assessing how well it would observe certain transient events.
Co-taught a six-week college algebra course to University of Florida freshmen.
Developed lessons and long-term plans for students to work on their needs and challenge themselves. Tutored introductory astronomy and physics to 17-20 year old students.
Developed interactive lessons for preschool-age children that fused learning and fun!
Megan was GREAT! My daughter wasn't sure at first about having an online tutor because she thought it wasn't going to work out for her. After the first lesson, she was amazed at how great it was and Megan was able to help Corinne understand her algebra problems with much more clarity! The lesson was a huge success and we look forward working with Megan for the rest of the school year! Highly recommend!+ Read More
Megan works my daughter into her schedule, and it sounds like they are working well together. This level of math is very challenging so it’s great to have help!
Megan started tutoring me in astronomy when she gave me some information informally but it was so fun it's a regular thing now. I might take astronomy classes now and having her as a teacher is awesome!
Megan was a really great teacher. When it came to difficult math questions, she would walk me through all of the steps and explain them in detail. She was very understanding and flexible. She helped me pass college algebra!
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!+ Read More
Really helpful with calculus 2 at UF (where it's pretty tough!) Good at explaining new concepts as well as helping with difficult problems.
