Drop-In Academic Mentor

McKenna Smith

How I Can Help

My session could help with prepping for weekly quizzes, getting homework questions answered, and reviewing topics from lectures. I could also work with you to make a study plan, brainstorm learning strategies, and work through difficult topics.


Hi everyone, home for me is Jackson, TN. I use she/her/hers pronouns and I am studying English literature, psychology, and medical humanities on the pre-med track. I enjoy reading, being outside, spending time with friends, and being active. I also love to roller skate when I can!

Why I Mentor

This will be my first year mentoring and I am looking forward to meeting students! I decided to be a mentor because I have had difficulties in some of my courses, and I always found other students' explanations the most helpful. I hope I can help some of you in the ways other students have helped me!
