Introduction: Does experience count? You know it does. For over 40 years, I have coached students from K to adult who are Talented and Gifted; AP students; English as a Second Language Learners; SAT/PSAT preppers; university degree and MBA seekers. I have been recommended by Willamette University's Office of Accessible Education, and I have mentored student teachers in multiple universities. In addition, I also support business professionals seeking new jobs, helping them create updated resumes and cover letters, and practice interview skills. I also assist with finding and writing grants for non-profits and small businesses. I work online and face to face within CDC guidelines. Where have I worked? In the US, Mexico, Guatemala, and Ecuador. Yes, I hold a current teaching license from the Oregon Teachers Standards and Practices Commission. Yes, I received training as a Google Certified Instructor. Yes, I am a Fulbright New Century Scholar with a cohort of university presidents, researchers, and professors. Yes, I am certified to teach Advanced Placement. Yes, I am a National Writing Project Fellow. And yes--I've been successful at grant writing. I have personally received multiple fellowships and grants, up to $100,000, as well as awards for Outstanding Educator of the Year from multiple education institutions. What does that mean to you? It means I have the experience, skills, and passion to do the best possible for you to achieve your goals. Let's start with talking about what you want. Then, I'll send you a contract and then go to work, crafting a program or product especially for you to address your goals. You are unique, and so are your strengths and needs. Your program will be individualized, not a canned program that doesn't fit you. I will be by your side, coaching you on to success. We'll have fun, and you will absolutely advance your skills to achieve your goals or get the product you need to advance your business needs. Need more information? Contact me, please. I am in the Pacific Time zone, and I am looking forward to answering your questions and helping you!

Megan Trow is a very quick responder. When you ask her for something, she rapidly returns your call, e-mail, or text, with a few thoughts and questions so she can refine her work to your needs. Megan embodies the five qualities that an effective tutor possesses. She exhibits patience in the careful, mindful choices she makes while listening to her students and experiencing worlds of thought along with them. She is quite flexible, and always open to new thoughts, although steadfast in her support of students and their growth. Her emotional intelligence quotient is unusually high. Her communication skills are excellent, and she can help students learn to imagine, to see, their and others’ ideas. Megan sets a great example of self-discipline, always arriving punctually, always remaining calm and respectful, and always seeing life as an opportunity to grow and learn. Her positive attitude and ability to empathize with others inspires students to explore the worlds of possibilities that lie before them. Her technical expertise enables her to communicate via a variety of innovative methods. As Megan is an active learner herself, she also is a leader, and her peers, students, and families hold the deepest respect for her.

Megan Trow has been my tutor for around seven years of my academic career. She has given me more than just the tools to learning. She has inspired me to expand my horizons as well as comforted me in my time of need. I remember the days where my life seemed so difficult and Megan chose to lift me up and set me on my feet. I highly recommend Ms. Trow as a tutor as she has provided me with great mentorship in academics and wellbeing.
Trow Development: Star Student Tutors's reply
Eric, it was a pleasure to help you acquire English language skills while you were in high school. Speaking both Chinese and English will open doors for you in your career. Now that you are at Cornell University, I can see that you have become excellent in writing reports and business executive summaries. Thank you for your kind words and know that I am available for advanced research paper writing if you need any coaching.
