Bio

I teach Pre-algebra and Algebra math courses online for a community college. I've taught these classes face-to-face, online and in a hybrid format. In addition, I have two math certifications: Math 4-8 (Texas) and Math 5 -9 (Florida) as well as EC-4th Generalist (Texas) and PK3 - 3rd grade (Florida). In 2017, I earned a Master's of Education - Curriculum & Instruction (Math 6-8). I have taught 2nd and 3rd grade, worked as an independent Math Interventionist in K-12 schools and private schools, and tutored elementary, middle school, high school, and adults since 1997. Many of my students have received commendations in math on standardized tests. Also, I served as a Title I Teacher / Tutor for math and reading for non-public schools locally. Currently, I continue to teach online and serve as a Regional Math Coach for elementary schools locally. In addition to tutoring, I enjoy conducting professional developments for teachers.

Whether you live in my city or out of state, I can help you make sense of math and reading without you leaving your home. Online, we can work together to improve your grades, or we can meet face-to-face.

Why have I tutored for so long? I enjoy empowering others to succeed! I have witnessed grades improve, confidence rise, and many "light bulbs" come on and stay on with my tutoring style being a contributing factor. Take action and contact me now to set up an appointment.

Tips for Tutors & Teachers

 My first tip:  Use a class pledge

 

I wrote the following after working with several groups of elementary children at a Christian school.  

 

Mrs. Mackie’s Class Musings

 

I am a new creature predestined for greatness.

I have wisdom, and I make wise choices.

My teachers are anointed to teach in a manner that I can understand.

My mind is alert and anointed to understand, retain, explain, and apply.

I approach my work without fear and do my work to the best of my ability in excellence.

I have favor with my teachers, friends, and family.

I am healed and sickness does not lord over my body. Therefore, I have good attendance in school.

I have control over my body and emotions. I do things decently and in order.

 I listen with my ears; think with my mind; speak wisdom and knowledge with my tongue.

I am loved regardless of how I perform.

I believe I am an overcomer, and all of my needs are met. I hold fast to these words.

Mrs. Mackie, I am ready to learn and achieve.

 

Note, I reply: I am prepared and ready to teach!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Initially with this first school, the students would repeat it after me. Then, they wanted to lead.  So, they took turns. Sometimes, we said it in unison. If it appeared I was going to start class without doing our pledge, they would remind me. I would say after about a week, a third grader had a good old fashion “fit”.  That’s when I added the word emotions when I referred to having control over your body. The next day, the third grader arrived a few minutes early to apologize. Once our session began, we recited the healing praise, but I decided to lead it.  As I was reading the phrase, “I am loved regardless of how I perform”, I turned towards him to make and hold eye contact. The biggest and most beautiful smile came across his face.  I did not have any more trouble out of him. He was still active, but no fits.  It's a work in progress!
