Subjects taught
  • Mathematics

    Too often, Maths is taught as an abstract concept, with tons of rules and methods that you need to learn. That stops here! The key to success in Mathematics is recognising its real life application. Understanding that Mathematics is all about life, is the first step in understanding Mathematics.

    Megan teaches Mathematics at Primary School level(s)

  • Science

    Science is all about asking the right questions and knowing how to find the answers. All you need is a curious mind and a hunger for knowledge, and you too can be a scientist! I believe in an investigatory approach to science learning, which is both fun and enriching!

    Megan teaches Science at Primary School level(s)

  • English

    Thorough knowledge of the English language can open many doors for you. Being a universal language, competence is crucial! Improve the way you speak, listen and communicate, and doors of opportunity will fly open all around you!
