My background in biology, anatomy, physiology and the sciences is extensive. I have a B.S. in Biology with Honors from Tulane University and an MS in Marine and Freshwater Biology also from Tulane. I earned my DDS (Dental Degree) from the University of Iowa and finished two hospital residencies in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. I have an MSN in Nursing. After retiring from my practice to care for a sick family member, I established a non-profit providing health care for the needy. I have been teaching at a proprietary school since 2000 and middle and high school science here in Los Angeles for the past six years. I have been working for the Santa Monica, Malibu Unified School Districts. My background and knowledge is as extensive as my educational background.I have worked for the EPA and as an Environmentalist for Memphis and Shelby County. My students have always complemented me by demonstrating their excellent performance over the years after my tutoring.

I have completed the MEPN (Master's Entry Level Professional Nursing) program at Cal State University. I am one of the top students in the class with excellent clinical and didactic skills especially in the health sciences, pharmacology, and assessment. I have completed my Nursing, MSN, and CNL I have tutored most of the students in my cohort and the next. Having been a teacher at the collegiate and high school levels, I communicate well, demonstrate well, and none of the students I have tutored in nursing ever failed a class (and I have helped them reverse some serious problems). I enjoy teaching, and am currently seeking a professorship at several universities around the country. I am available now to assist all levels of nursing students achieve their goals. Further, I have recently passed my NCLEX, national nursing boards, so for those who need assistance in passing the NCLEX I can assist with that also.

NCLEX

The NCLEX is unlike any test you have ever taken in you life. I speak as the voice of experience having passed national boards in dentistry, medicine and science over the years. Your nursing professors can not prepare you for what you will go through. They have no concept (in most cases) of what an NCLEX style question is. Most nursing educators utilize the test banks for their texts and I can speak from experience these are NOT even remotely similar to the NCLEX questions. I have recently successfully passed the NCLEX examination. I had a very strong didactic and clinical background and though that helped in passing the NCLEX I found the key to be the ability to take a test unlike any taken during nursing school. I did go through a private agency. The cost of the private agency was over a thousand dollars. I believe I can teach the same basic test taking fundamentals for significantly less.

Nursing

I have completed my Nursing and Masters in Nursing at California State University. My credentials are BS, MS, Nursing MSN, CNL. I have a teaching background and am currently tutoring other nursing students. I feel very confident in teaching the nursing sciences, pathology, pharmacology, advanced assessment,and all nursing science classes. Having current didactic and experiential knowledge of advanced nursing, I hope I could help others become better students and nurses. I have an acute understanding of the problems associated with nursing education. I have recently successfully taken and passed the NCLEX (national nursing certification exam), and feel very qualified to assist others in preparation for this examination.
