Meg

Bio

Megan is a PhD candidate in the History of Science at Harvard University where she has worked with more than 200 students in history and history of science courses and has advised senior honors thesis students working on advanced topics in the history of science, technology and medicine. In recognition for her skills teaching and advising students, she has been awarded Harvard’s Derek Bok Certificate for Distinction in Teaching eight times. Before graduate school Megan received her B.A. in English from Amherst College where she received the Ralph Waldo Rice Prize in recognition of her undergraduate senior thesis.

Megan believes that writing is an iterative process, and that all writers require skilled readers who will give them honest, constructive feedback on their work. In working one-on-one with students, she listens carefully and helps each student to find clear and convincing ways to communicate his or her own thinking. Megan has expertise in a range of topics in English literature and United States and European History. She has extensive experience working with students on essays for courses as well as personal statements.

In her increasingly limited spare time, you can find Megan procrastinating over a cup of tea or foraging through one of Cambridge’s many excellent bookstores for fiction that will provide a brief escape from her dissertation.
