About Me

Hello! My name is Megan and I am currently a Master’s Student at Carnegie Mellon University majoring in Civil & Environmental Engineering. I grew up in Florida and loved paddle boarding and swimming in the ocean. This passion for water, coupled with my love of math, led me to pursue my degree, and I hope to be a water resources engineer in the future.

I completed my undergrad at Emory University in 2021 with majors in Applied Mathematics and Environmental Sciences. After graduating, I travelled to Madagascar to teach as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant. I absolutely loved connecting with my Malagasy students, learning about their culture, and sharing about America. I taught classes as large as 200 students, and worked with pre-K through adults. It was such an exciting challenge!

I have been tutoring for the past 4 years, and I love watching my students grow over time. I want to learn about my students-their hobbies, their passions and their goals. I strive to adapt to each student’s individual learning style and incorporate their interests in sessions. I hope I can help my students feel more confident, more prepared, and excited to learn!

Tutoring Experience

In the past year, I have been an English Teaching Assistant in Madagascar through Fulbright. I teach 18 in-person classes for 22 hours weekly with 20-120 students in each class. I design my own curriculum focused on English speaking & listening. In fall 2021, I was a substitute teacher in Manatee County. I subbed for classes K-8, adapting to various school systems and class environments. From 2020-2021, I was a private math/science teacher through Strive Academics. I taught middle school math, PSAT math prep, algebra I, geometry, AP Calculus, and AP Physics I. Additionally, 2020-2021, I was a volunteer tutor for CovEducation and Hollywood Pal. I taught algebra I & II and geometry. Finally, I was an assistant math teacher at Ben Franklin Academy, a private high school in Atlanta, GA. I worked independently with students in geometry, AP Calculus, and AP Physics. I assisted in grading homework and writing exams for all high school math subjects and AP Physics & Biology.

Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience

"I began volunteering through Key Club in high school, and volunteered over 100 hours a year. My favorite service was with Miracle League, where, almost every Saturday, I played baseball with children, teens, and adults who have physical and/or mental disabilities. In college, I continued volunteering on Saturday mornings through Trees Atlanta. For 3 hours a week, I planted trees in urban areas, removed invasive plants and/or worked to upkeep trees. After my first year with this organization, I became a trip lead for my university and worked both with the organization and individual volunteers from Emory. I absolutely loved exploring Atlanta communities, meeting students and community members passionate about service & the environment, and making an impact in my community. After the university volunteer organization shut down due to Covid-19, I continued volunteering with Trees Atlanta as an individual volunteer, and assisted with some of their youth programs. In addition to my Trees Atlanta service, I also participated in other projects while in university. After the Covid-19 shutdown, I began virtually volunteering with CovEducation and Hollywood PAL. Before the pandemic, I was attended an alternative spring break trip to Orlando, FL and became a trip lead for an alternative fall break trip to Chattanooga, TN. Both were focused on education and underserved children. Additionally, I volunteered as a tour guide and tour guide trainer for my university, and gave tours weekly prior to Covid-19. Recently, I volunteered to write, prepare, and administer tests for Carnegie Mellon's Science Olympiad. It was so much fun seeing all of the hard work come together on the day of the competition, and to see all of the high school students thinking about the problems in creative ways."
