About Mc Kenna


Bio

Hi! I just graduated college with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and with a minor in TESOL. During my study, I worked as a tutor for about 2 years and a Teacher's Assistant for 1 year. I had many opportunities to teach in an Elementary classroom setting as well. I am well rounded and can teach/tutor many different ages and subjects.
I live to teach. I find it to be a noble profession, as it helps all others become possible. One of the best feelings in the world is to watch...

Hi! I just graduated college with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and with a minor in TESOL. During my study, I worked as a tutor for about 2 years and a Teacher's Assistant for 1 year. I had many opportunities to teach in an Elementary classroom setting as well. I am well rounded and can teach/tutor many different ages and subjects.
I live to teach. I find it to be a noble profession, as it helps all others become possible. One of the best feelings in the world is to watch someone grow in knowledge, understanding, and/or skill. Even better is to have been able to help that to happen.

I have had many opportunities to work in an Elementary setting. My degree qualifies me to work K-8, and I have a current teaching license. I have spent the most time teaching 2nd-4th grades. However, I have been taught well and am qualified to teach any Elementary student. I specialize in literacy, TESOL (or ESL as you may know it), and science.

I graduated with a minor in TESOL, and during that time I worked as a tutor for international students at my university. I helped them with reading comprehension, writing, grammar, and study skills. I also worked as a Teacher's Assistant for a TESOL course, counseling university students on how to improve their English-teaching skills and lesson plans.

At my university, I was trained for an entire semester on how to teach a 1-credit study skills course, which I then taught to many students in a one-on-one setting. I am familiar with a variety of study skills and am able to discern which skills would suit each person and situation that I come across.

I look forward to meeting with you and helping you achieve your academic goals. Let me know when you'd like to meet, or feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
