Megan

Hello, my name is Megan. I was born and raised in a small town in the United States. I lived in Europe for 16 years and hope to return there to live permanently. I spent 15 years in the Netherlands, 9 months in Romania, and have spent considerable time in Norway which is where I hope to move to eventually. I'm currently studying to get my BA and then my MA in English and writing. I want to teach #English as a second language. I would also like to be able to do #editing and #translation work eventually. I love languages and learning about other cultures, helping other people with their English helps me understand what problems different people and languages face when learning the English language. It also allows me to learn about other cultures around the world. I have been tutoring people in English and #writing for over a decade now online and at school. I run a program called Conversational English online via Skype to help others with their English in other countries. I also work as a peer tutor for my college tutoring other students in communications, English, and writing.

Information About Sessions

  • Each session lasts 2 hours and has a maximum of 8 participants (not including myself).

  • Each session is recorded and shared with the other participants.

  • Please sign into Skype at least 5 minutes before the start of the session. I will call everyone at this time so we can start the session on time.

  • Please make sure your microphone and speakers (or headset) are working properly before the session starts.

  • Please be on time. If for some reason you will be late send me a message beforehand to let me know; otherwise I will give your spot to someone else.

  • If you are unsure about the time difference you can check this website https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ Look for a city in your timezone and compare it with the time in Moscow, Russia or Seattle, Washington as these are the times we list the sessions in.

 

Etiquette in the Group Conversation

  • Everyone should mute their microphones when they are not talking. Background noise can lead to difficulty hearing others when it is their turn to talk.

  • Being rude or disrespectful to others will not be tolerated. Behaving in this manner will mean a permanent ban from participating in the sessions.

  • If you sign up for 3 sessions and fail to show up or inform me that you cannot make it means you will no longer be allowed to sign up to a session ahead of time. You may still join the sessions only at the last minute if there is a slot available.

  • Long term participants who show up regularly may sign up for multiple sessions ahead of time. New participants may sign up for no more than 2 sessions ahead of time.

  • Please note that if you are late your spot may be given to someone else who is present and wants to participate unless you inform me ahead of time that you will be late.
