Company: Creative Minds Tutoring LLC
Location: Greer, South Carolina, United States

Melissa R. McKinney, an owner and lead teacher at Creative Minds Tutoring LLC, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of education.

Dedicated to providing holistic support on behalf of students, Ms. McKinney has distinguished herself as the owner and lead teacher at Creative Minds Tutoring LLC, a flourishing enterprise that has made a significant impact on the lives of countless children, both locally in South Carolina and nationally through a diverse range of tutoring and educational programs, including online courses. In this capacity, Ms. McKinney’s approach centers on enhancing the overall well-being of every student, bolstering their self-esteem, and customizing educational material in order to account for various factors, including physical environment, learning disabilities, and mental health. Driven by a firm belief in establishing a meaningful connection with the child, Ms. McKinney places a strong emphasis on meeting the unique needs of each child, rather than solely focusing on academic improvement. 

Prior to her current endeavors, Ms. McKinney served as a home educator from 2010 until 2017, during which time she also worked as the lead teacher at the STEAM Academy. She went on to work as a teacher at the Greenville County Schools between 2017 and 2020, and received a Bachelor of Arts in elementary education at North Greenville University in 2020. Having recognized a need for tailored tutoring services in the local student population during the COVID-19 pandemic, Ms. McKinney was ultimately inspired to establish Creative Minds Tutoring. 

In accounting for her success, Ms. McKinney largely credits her dedication to positivity, as well as her calm and patient approach to working with students. Among her most cherished accomplishments, she is particularly proud to have founded a successful business while simultaneously raising two children of her own. Looking toward the future, Ms. McKinney aspires to transition her tutoring operations to a larger facility, through which she can offer a more comprehensive range of educational services and products.
