My name is Megan and I'm an English teacher based in Kraków, Poland. I was born in Minnesota, USA. I have a BA in Philosophy and Biomedical Studies from St. Olaf College. After that, I moved to Poland and got an MA in Theoretical Philosophy from the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin (KUL). I currently work at an AI start-up.
I started teaching English in early 2014. I've taught all ages - young kids, teenagers, and adults - and all levels. I've taught in-company classes, high school students, for universities, and within privately-owned English schools. I prefer private lessons.
While I am not teaching English, I'm involved in theater, sing, and work on my own philosophy projects.
