Nicole is awesome. Let me start off by saying that! I reached out for her help last minute right before my final exam in fundamentals. I was in need for help because I tried everything - peer tutoring at school and reaching out for help from my professor - and I had failed all my previous exams for fundamentals.
When I met with Nicole, I felt like I wasn't going to be able to pull off passing my final exam. Nicole sat down with me and went through 7 weeks of material explaining the things I didn't understand. She also helped me with pulling out the correct information from nursing style test questions (which is something I was really struggling with). Needless to say, I passed my final exam with a 91% and I passed my class! I am much more confident in fundamentals test taking!
"Great, Amazing Tutor for NCLEX-RN prep! "
Kulsum from Chicago, IL on 2/21/14
I was studying for the NCLEX-RN and since I learn material better through repetition and review, I was looking for a tutor. Nicole was very patient with me, and through her own personal assessment of how I learn, she was able to break down the material in a way that was understandable, and easy to learn. She also has fun study tips like using note-cards to help remember medications. She also provides great examples and uses life experiences to help you remember medications and nursing interventions.
She never made me feel incompetent, or undermined me. She has many years of nursing experience in the ICU and surgery unit, so she definitely knows what she is talking about and practices what she preaches.
A great asset for anyone that is studying for the brutal NCLEX-RN exam and feels they learn better through one on one focused teaching and review. I thought I would never pass the brutal test since they just changed some of the testing format for 2014. She only lets you sign up for the test once she is confident that you are ready, so you never feel like you are going through this stressful experience alone.
I would never have passed if I did not have the support of this amazing nurse. Every subject, disease process and medication that she had me review (over and over on a daily basis) was on that test! When I finally took the test, I felt prepared and confident. I had a lot of difficult level questions and my test ended on a select all that apply! And I am now a licensed nurse. I highly recommend this tutor!!

Nicole was an excellent tutor and I truly could not have passed the NCLEX without her help!!! She was extremely patient, always willing to help, never minded repeating the notes and she knew the material better than anyone I've ever worked with. She provided real life situations to help me understand the material and also gave me homework after each session. This helped me because I had to make many note cards and take many quizzes. While taking the NCLEX, there were many questions that I had that I remember Nicole and I talking about. I HIGHLY recommend anyone and everyone to go to Nicole for a tutor to pass the NCLEX. She was a true life saver! Thanks Nicole!!

Nicole is very good at tutoring and is very knowledgeable. I enjoy very much working with her as she is detailed, patient and explains things. She assisted me on a case study and was able to help me format it for my Respiratory Therapy class.
"Nicole is a very good tutor"

I've been working with Nicole for several months now and I couldn't be happier. She is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. If you are in nursing school, you would benefit from her help. God Bless You, Nicole!
"Great tutor: very knowledgeable and easy to work with!"

Everyone learns in different ways and at a different pace; Nicole is a great tutor who will cater to your needs. She has a very warm personality and is willing to dedicate time to help you succeed. Whether you are ready to be quizzed on material or you want to review the material together for a more interactive learning approach, Nicole is ready for whatever you decide. Very patient and overall excellent tutor!

Nicole C. Is an excellent Tutor. She has a vast knowledge about nursing. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help. She had real world experiences and examples. The best indicator of her ability to tutor is that I passed the Nclex!
"Nikki C is the best! Best tutor we ever had!"

My wife and I have tried to learn a foreign language before but the various teachers/tutors we had lessened our desire instead of enhancing it! We decided to try and learn Italian and found Nicole through WyzAnt! In summary, Nikki was awesome!
Nikki gave three of us Italian lessons over the course of three months. There was my wife, our good friend Nicole and myself. We all work at the same facility and Nikki right away was willing to come and meet us during our lunch hour (once/week). Nikki was always on time and ready for our lesson. She made us want to learn. But it was more than that. You could tell she loved Italy and loved Italian. She is Italian, so I am sure that helped! She bonded right away with my wife and Nicole and they enjoyed Nikki's company very much.
Nikki had us get a college level book (introductory book to Italian) and went through sections of that book with us. She did give us some homework which we didn't do as much as we should of but Nikki was enthusiastic as ever each lesson. She made learning fun and didn't get on our case when we spoke English and was very encouraging to us even when we got answers wrong.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Nikki to anyone learning Italian. She is Italian, breathes Italian and is a wonderful person, mother and each lesson was like being with a good friend. If we decide to continue on our quest to become fluent in Italian we will certainly continue with her. For now we are heading to the Italian Island Sardinia and will be able to speak some Italian on our cycling tour because we had Italian lessons with Nikki! Thanks for all your help and patience Nikki!
