Megan's Bio

Megan graduated with honors from the University of Chicago where she earned her degree in psychology. After graduation, Megan began pursuing her master's degree in the urban teaching education program at the University of Chicago, though a family commitment required her to leave the program. However, Megan's passion for teaching led her to become a part-time instructor for a program that prepares junior high students seeking to attend Chicago's top public high schools.

For a year-and-a-half after graduating from college, Megan worked one-on-one with several students on literacy and math support. Prior to joining the PrepNow team, Megan worked for a company that focused on preparing students for the selective enrollment exam and algebra exit exam in the Chicago Public Schools. She has taught test prep courses for 7th grade and 8th grade, as well as algebra, so she is well-versed in test prep tips and skills. During her sessions, Megan likes to ask her students lots of questions and communicates excitement about the material, which helps to keep her students involved and engaged.

When it comes to mastering a topic, Megan believes that practice makes perfect. She takes pride in her ability to break problems down into a series of simple and easy-to-understand steps and incorporates repetition into the lessons to ensure the material is fully understood. Megan also believes that the best way to test mastery of a topic is to have the student teach it, so she frequently utilizes teach-backs. Though her students work hard, Megan tries to keep the tone of her sessions open and friendly. Megan said, "I give challenge questions that are fun in nature, usually dealing with pop culture. Students are so proud of themselves when they can solve and understand them without my help."

In high school, Megan was captain of her varsity soccer team, earned her second-degree black belt in Taekwondo, and led the National Honor Society as president. During college, she continued to play soccer on a competitive intramural team while also serving as an RA in the dorms. Since then, she has taken up running and is currently training for her first marathon. In her spare time, she loves to cook home-style food, bake anything that's not from a box, and teach herself how to crochet.
