Welcome to MAC!
What is MAC?
MAC Testing is a holistic, student-centered teaching and learning community offering specialized, expert instruction in mathematics, science, reading, and writing. MAC teaches thinking: how to process, interpret, organize, and convey information of all kinds. For this reason, we defy the easy categorization implied by titles like “tutor” or “test prep.” Rather than supplying students with easily-forgotten, test-specific, "wise guy" tricks, we offer genuine education. What a student learns at MAC is immediately transferable to other academic work, as well as to real-life problem solving situations. When a student leaves MAC, he or she sees the world and the self—both in and out of school—with a greater degree of clarity, insight, and self-direction than ever before.
At MAC, we're straight shooters. We don't find ways around your problems—we help you identify and solve them as expeditiously and as pragmatically as possible. Upon enrolling, students take The Profile, so that they can be assured that their learning will be tailored to their specific intellectual and personal needs. We survey students' content-area knowledge and, where necessary, test or arrange testing for learning disabilities. When students leave MAC, they can be assured that their academic "holes" have been filled.
With students coming from all over the world, we know that a one-size-fits-all approach actually fits none. We also know how insanely busy you are, so we offer scheduling that is highly flexible, taking into account the rate at which students progress. At MAC, we diagnose, analyze, prescribe, teach, apply, and remediate. You learn, succeed, feel self-confident, and thrive!
What people say about us
Dr. Mac, This goes without saying, but thank you for everything. With your help, applying and then being admitted into The Ohio State University went very smoothly. I had to start off my thanks with the Buckeye sweatshirt. In time, your “Go Georgia Bulldogs” ringtone will change to Carmen Ohio. I am determined to make that happen.
Thank you, MJ
Dr. Mac, I cannot begin to tell you how thankful we are for all you have done for us. It is due to your teaching, support and guidance that George is attending The University of Notre Dame in the fall. In addition to his test scores, his writing skills and confidence have dramatically improved. There is no one person who has changed so many young lives and provided them with an opportunity to success in the future more than you. God bless you for all you do!
With much appreciation, Carol, Wayne & George
Dearest Dr. Mac, I don’t even know where to begin. I would not be going to James Madison University without you, I would not be as content with my future as I am now. Let’s just say, A LOT would be different! You have such an amazing energy that allows everyone to gravitate towards you. I am so blessed to have gotten to know you. I cannot express how much you’ve helped me. When I tell you I wouldn’t be going to JMU, I mean it! So thank you, thank you, thank you! I look forward to hearing other success stories from you and your incredible ways.
