Delfin Meehan

Delfin Meehan has been working as a tutor (heightened text, reading/writing/comprehension, and grade school math) for the past five years. She graduated in 2019 from Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts receiving her BFA in acting. After studying a year at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London, she gained much insight on how to make heightened text more accessible for contemporary readers.
Due to the deep focus on textual analysis and critical investigation of narratives in her conservatory training, Delfin adores being a facilitator for young talent and serving as an aid to help students find their confidence. Her hope is to spark and share the joy of reading, analyzing (numbers or text), and writing to all of her wonderful students.

Teaching Philosophy & Approach

My teaching philosophy comes predominantly from the Vygotsky approach of the model of cognitive development. I want to develop and build critical thinking skills in my students through scaffolding inquiries that lead to the goal of deeper analysis. As students begin to figure out the ways in which they process information, they glean a command over their own education and can find a curiosity to explore subjects they might not have enjoyed before. This confidence essentially leads to critical thinkers who are versatile and flexible in their studies. On the other hand, for the students that come to me disliking a particular subject, I work to demystify the difficulty and usually at the root is one displeasurable experience with the subject at hand. If we can normalize and accept the fact that learning can be at times a frustrating and messy process, we can focus on building endurance so students can handle future challenges with a sense of ease. I want my students to feel like they have a toolbox of different points of view and strategies to approach any question with proficiency and readiness.
