About Mackenzie

I am a Civil Engineering student with a minor in Spanish at SMU in Dallas. I grew up in Frisco, TX and attended Frisco High School, where I graduated in the top 3% of my class. I was on the varsity swim team for four years and also involved in National Honor Society and Student Council. Throughout high school, I coached for both a summer swim team and a youth triathlon team. I've been babysitting since the 7th grade and am very good with kids. I also have a younger brother who I help with his homework from time to time. Besides those commitments, I worked for around 6 months at Chick-Fil-A and then at a local Italian restaurant for the end of my senior year. Since the summer after my sophomore year, I have given private swim lessons, coordinating prices and schedules with parents as well as marketing my lessons. I have always enjoyed teaching, whether it be through coaching swimming or helping with school work.

As an engineering major, I have an aptitude for math and science classes. Math is a very important part of my major and besides being required to take it, I find that I genuinely love the subject. Applying math leads to science, another one of my very strong subjects. Throughout high school, I took 11 AP courses and 10 AP tests. My junior and senior year I was awarded the AP Scholar with Distinction, meaning I scored above a 3 (the passing grade, which is out of 5) on all of my tests with more 4s and 5s than 3s. Test taking is a strength of mine.

At SMU, I am also minoring in Spanish. One reason is for the practicality of learning another language and also to know Spanish in Texas. Another is simply because I have a love for Spanish and the liberal arts-like classes that I get to take for the minor. In high school I took numerous history classes, including two AP history classes just for fun. I also excelled in my language arts and English classes. Here at SMU, I am in the University Honors Program and took two Honors English courses last year.

Besides my credentials in class throughout high school and my freshman year of college, I also scored very well on the college entry standardized tests. Both my SAT and ACT scores helped me achieve entry into many great universities as well as earn significant scholarship money.

I want to tutor because I believe that while learning might not always be fun, once you know something and finish a problem, an essay, or ace a test it can be one of the best feelings in the world!

From my experience in high school and college, I know how frustrating it is to have a bad teacher, to be behind in lecture, or to just not understand something no matter how hard you try. I hope to do my best and help you both understand and master your subject of choice!
