About Marcia

I am addicted to that "ah hah" response from a student who finally understands a difficult topic. I positively adore seeing a student realize how very capable they are and that excellence is within their grasp. I have tutored students and young nurses for over 15 years. I am a member of the AACN and have had many varied experiences presenting at meetings as well as at varied schools and hospitals. I have received the clinical excellence award in my practice as well as the teaching excellence award from Capstone School of Nursing at the University of Alabama. I believe in learning and laughter which makes tutoring a joy for me and the student. As a student you are limited by three things: (1) your instructor, (2) your exposure, and (3) your self perception. No matter how good I am, 50 % of the credit belongs to you because of your willingness to learn. Not only am I a great observer, I'm a great listener as well. I received my Masters with a dual major in Neuroscience and Teaching because I have always known that students are the hope of the future.

I received my ADN at Jefferson State Community college
I received my BSN and MSN at UAB School of Nursing and was inducted into the Nursing Honor Society
Sigma Theta Tau
I worked as a lab instructor in the biology department teaching Biology, Anatomy, Physiology, and Head and Neck Anatomy and Physiology. I am fairly astute at reading CXR's, CT Scans, MRI's, and Angiograms.

Many times students come to me with the feeling that they must not be very smart. I am here to reassure you that the only difference between us is I have had more exposure. Another words, I want you to have the opportunity to recognize your own talents. Critical thinking is another word for common sense and that is the approach I use with you when I teach. Contact me and let me reveal to you the abilities you have.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Anatomy

I have taught anatomy and physiology since I became a nurse. I have a Master's in Neuroanatomy with a second major in teaching.
I teach cardiac, pulmonary, renal, neuro, endocrine and immune.
At his level there are topics that scare students to death but I have found faculty use 50 cent words that have 5 cent explanation. Let me know if I can help.

Nursing

I have taught in nursing school as a part-time instructor and nurse clinician. I take students on rotation through the ICU at a major medical trauma center. I have a Masters in Neuroscience and teaching. My clinicals are usually filled up one quarter in advance. My students work hard but they are thrilled with the fact they understand. I have taught neuro, cardiac, pulmonary, renal, immune, endocrine including the physiology and patho. My students call me the great explainer. Many times in Nursing I have seen faculty use 50 cent words for 5 cent explanations.
This tends to scare the student and they feel inadequate. I'm here to tell you that's not true. Let me know if you like the idea of working on line. Marcia

Physiology

As a registered nurse and clinical nurse specialist, my assessment skills require a clear understanding of A&P as well as pathophysiology. I love teaching students and hearing them say, "Why didn't anyone explain it that way before." You seem to be very bright. Most students don't recognize the need for assistance.
