About Mackenzie

Dear Potential Students,

I love tutoring and getting to know each of my students; the more I know a student, the better I can tailor a tutoring plan to help that student achieve his or her goals. I also want my students to get to know me. In high school, I excelled at reading, writing and grammar. I scored in the 90th percentile on the ACT's English and reading sections. After high school, I went on to study business in college. I hold a BA in International Business and Economics from Grand Valley State University, and a MBA from Chapman University.

I have worked in the private sector (for a doctor, for attorneys, and even for a zoo!) as well as in the public sector (for the U.S. government) and in each of my jobs, one thing has always been consistent: excellent reading, writing and editing skills were a necessity. I have written and edited everything from single-page letters to other people, to 30+ page confidential investigative reports for government officials. In a nutshell, I love to write.

I also love to tutor. I enjoy tutoring all age groups and have a lot of tutoring experience. I tutored undergraduate and graduate level writing at Grand Valley State University for four years, working closely with students on an individual level to outline, write and edit everything from freshman writing assignments to graduate-level thesis papers. I also served as an in-classroom tutor for freshman writing students two to three days per week for four years; typically, these classes were comprised of between 30 and 40 students.

I have also tutored elementary, middle school and college students who spoke English as a second language (ESL students). English is one of the world's most complex languages and the persistence and drive of ESL students to learn English never, ever ceases to amaze me. In 2001, I had the unique opportunity to travel to Japan, where I lived and studied for a year. While I was there, I tutored Japanese elementary and middle school students, helping them with their English language skills, including reading, writing and speaking both formal and conversational (informal) English. When I was in college, I conducted weekly one-on-one tutoring sessions with ESL students, helping them with reading, writing, and grammar.

It's so rewarding to work with my students and see them gaining confidence in themselves and in their work. I work closely with each of my students to establish short-term and long-term goals, and then create a personalized plan to help each student reach those goals. In addition, I regularly review my students' progress so that I'm staying on track to achieve my students' goals. I ask a lot of questions and encourage independent thinking, yet I'm always there for my students when they have questions or need encouragement.

Tutoring is something that I'm very passionate about. So, if you're looking for an experienced tutor who always strives to give students a rewarding tutoring experience, then I'm the tutor for you! Whether you need help with ACT prep, writing essays, general reading or grammar, or a combination, we can work together to achieve your goals.

I am available to tutor online and to travel. Please contact me to schedule lessons or if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you!
