About McKenzie

I have recently moved from Florida where I was a High School English Teacher for the past 4 years. I taught subjects ranging from Freshman - Juniors and Intensive Reading - AP English Language and Composition. Additionally, I tutored for English (Reading, Writing, and Grammar) and ACT/SAT outside of school. In undergrad, I took most of the classes to complete a Math Minor just for fun (math is my 2nd favorite subject).

I love tutoring because of the improvement that one-on-one instruction can provide. I hope to help my students become better reads, writers, or mathematicians. Now that I am back in Graduate School pursuing a Master Degree of Education in Curriculum and Instruction and a Master of Business Administration, I hope to tutor to continue my passion for teaching.

I love math! I almost became a math teacher instead of an English teacher. I completed math courses through Calculus 3 in college before focusing on English and Spanish Language. Math is a subject that students can make immense progress in with the correct help and support.

I have a Master's Degree in English Education and taught the following subjects in Florida: English 1 Honors, Advanced Communications, English 3 for Disfluent Readers, English 2, AICE English Language AS/A Level, AP English Language and Composition. I am certified in English 6-12 and also have a Gifted and ESOL Endorsement. In graduate school, I completed 75% of the coursework for a Reading Endorsement,

I am truly looking forward to connecting with new students. I have been tutoring many students for the past 4 years and have seen impressive improvements in their skills and test scores. Please let me know what you need tutoring for, and I will make sure to cater my lessons to your unique needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Ballet

I have been teaching dance (and ballet) for 10 years at Dance City Productions. I began as an assistant instructor in high school and progressed to a full staff member. Later, I became the Summer Dance Camp Director and Assistant Competition Team Director.

Common Core

I received a Master's Degree in English Education from the University of Florida in 2011-2012. We based all lessons and coursework off of the Common Core Standards so that we would be versatile teachers. The Florida Standards are nearly identical to the Common Core, and I have been working with the Florida Standards for the past 4 years, including many professional development trainings.

Fitness

I am actively involved in fitness training programs personally and designed a summer fitness program for dancers last summer. As a dance instructor, I am well versed in many styles of fitness, stretching, and conditioning. I have also taught aerobics and other fitness classes at the dance studio to youth.

Sewing

I was informally trained to sew by my grandmother. I have made many quilts and clothing. I am comfortable following patterns or creating new designs.
