Dependable, Driven, Compassionate
Hi! I’m McKinzie! I am an Academic Coach for Staying Ahead of the Game LLC. I have a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Rice University. I have had several years of experience working with students, as an academic and personal development tutor. I have experience working with students of all ages, and I have also assisted students with standardized test prep.
I enjoy working with students to help them learn about their own potential and abilities. I believe the executive functioning system shows students how to best use their own gifts to show the world what they can do. I love it when my students have an “aha” moment and begin to believe in themselves. I always share the importance of maintaining balance with all of my students. The balance between being organized and on top of everything and having time for yourself and being compassionate for your failures. You cannot learn from your mistakes if you do not take the time to forgive yourself and commit to changing.
