Tutor profile: Megan B.
Is there any advantage to learning a second language fluently?
Absolutely yes, I was raised overseas and given the opportunity to be completely bilingual speaking as native in two languages. It has opened doors that I never thought possible and it has created an openness and understanding of culture. When it comes to teaching and tutoring my approach is softer as I know how difficult it is to learn another language and master it.
Subject: World History
How does World History shape perspective?
World History is crucial for a student to center themselves within the pages of time. To gain a better understanding of who they are, where they came from, and in turn where they are going from here. World History connects us to each other, to culture, to the past, to the present, and in turn to the future.
How do you as a tutor support a student's literacy while delving directly into a subject area like English?
All subject teaching is at its core is literacy teaching. Our goal is to give students the tools to be able to pick up any book and decode the meanings and glean the nuggets of truth it holds hidden within its pages. This is especially true in English which is at its core where we teach literacy and expand a student's ability to read and understand written texts.
