"Hello all! My name is Megan D. and I graduated summa cum laude from the Honors College at East Carolina University. There I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Theatre Arts with a concentration in Musical Theatre. College is also where I started tutoring. It started small, just editing a few friends' papers. But as word spread, more peers turned to me to proofread essays and other papers. I've always loved English/Language Arts subjects. I passed my high school AP English exams with fours and fives, which earned me college credit, and the street "cred" to tutor my college peers. I also tutored in music theory in college.

I genuinely enjoy proofreading, as I see it not as a way of correcting students, but helping them find a better way to communicate and express themselves. It's always been a two-way street, a puzzle we unlock together.

I studied voice at the collegiate level in high school, and continued my studies in voice in college, where I took voice lessons and vocal coachings twice a week. I also s" less...
