Hi! My name is Megan Yoshino
I am a private tutor in Honolulu, Hawaii. My educational philosophy upholds high expectations with innovation to deliver unique learning opportunities for all learners. I am a firm believer in the growth mindset thinking, mindfulness/awareness and I believe in whole student teaching (mind, heart and soul).
I began my career teaching middle and high school in the public school system. I have been a presenter at Windward Community College’s “Core to College” alignment workshop to address building accountability and responsibility in the classroom. I attended the 2012 National Career Academy Coalition Conference in Nashville, Tennessee as one of ten teacher leaders to spearhead the transition to career academies. I also was a corporate trainer specializing in curriculum development, which deepened my understanding of the importance of creating a career ready child upon graduation.
I was born and raised in Hawaii. I am a proud alumna of Iolani School. I graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a bachelor of arts in English in 2008. Then graduated in 2010 from the University of Southern California with a master of arts in teaching. I am a member of the National Honor Society, Phi Kappa Phi.
When I’m not tutoring, I can be found dancing, reading a book, traveling, volunteering or discovering new places to eat.
Not in Hawaii? Not a problem, let's talk about distance learning options!
Miss Megan creates a comforting and trusting atmosphere/relationship making it easy to confide in her about something you're struggling with or something personal that may be interfering with something you are currently worrying towards. I never feel that I have to put on a facade during my tutoring sessions knowing that she accepts me for who I am and lets me express my emotions freely.
