Meagan Reilly is the Office Manager at Method Test Prep’s Long Island Center. She is the type of person others would want on their team – optimistic, family-oriented (her brother is her best friend), and extremely self-motivated (probably too hard on herself.) She has always had a passion for helping young people reach their potential. In her spare time, her favorite place in the world is her family’s summer home on the North Fork of Long Island. Her contributions to Method Test Prep can be summed up by a quote that has been instrumental to her: “Never hope for it more than you work for it.”

He is responsible for developing new material as well as training and leading our tutoring corps. Andrew enjoys astronomy, swimming, scuba diving, and music, but not all at the same time.

Before joining the team at Method Test Prep, Melanie pursued a rigorous and rewarding academic career at Stony Brook University where she studied English and Journalism. Her role at MTP is one as a “jack-of-all-trades,” from proctoring the center’s weekly practice ACT and SAT exams, to creating content for the company’s web-based program.
Her love of the English language extends back as far as she can remember. As a precocious fifth grader, Melanie’s dream career was “to write and illustrate children’s books.” That dream has yet to be shelved.
During her spare time, Melanie enjoys reading anything she can get her hands on, writing, and playing the piano and drums. A self-proclaimed grammarian and logophile, she is working to stop silently correcting other’s grammar in her head. One adage she closely adheres to is, “Sometimes the worst thing that could happen turns out to be the best.”
As she grows with the company, Melanie looks forward to the ways in which her talents will help benefit the students who pass through MTP’s physical and digital doors.
