I would recommend Linda to anyone who is struggling through their NCLEX. I had taken my boards 3 times and I was running out of options, not really knowing where to turn. After reading the reviews I decided to try tutoring with Linda and it was one of the best decisions I made. She was able to identify my weaknesses and strengths, she helped me to work through questions and most of all she was extremely encouraging. When you are at a point of so much discouragement, sometimes a few encouraging words give you a new found courage to go into your boards with confidence. My first exam I went up to 235 questions, my other 2 exams I went through the full 265 questions. After tutoring with Linda, I went into my exam and my computer shut off at 100 questions and I found out that i passed! If anyone is feeling discouraged or not knowing where to turn, I know the feeling and I have been there. I definitely recommend you to work with Linda and she help you through to conquer and pass the NCLEX!
Linda is extremely helpful! She is personable, patient, and non-judgmental. She will talk you through a problem or scenario until you fully understand the answer and rationale. I highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling with NCLEX prep.
Best Tutor I know. She is very knowledgeable and forces you to think until you get it. Love her and I wouldn't be as far as I am now without her. I highly recommend her. She's an expert. 🤗
I have been so blessed to have linda as a tudor. I started taking lessons with linda while starting my third go at the NClEX. I have never been a good test taker and I have testing anxiety. I had diligently worked so hard on the first two attempts but couldn't make it over the passing line I had taken Hurst, ATI, and the questions with NCSBN and still ahdn't made it. I looked online and found wyzant and specifically Linda. I'm always skeptical using a online program I've never heard of before and didn't know what to expect but after reading all teh reviews like this one I give Linda a shot and I'm so glad I did. The third time I took my NCLEX I passed it in 75 questions where as the first 2 times it had taken me 265 questions and I hadn't passed either time. Linda specializes her teaching based on where you at so it will be different for everyone, but she really knows her stuff. If I could do it all again I was have done this my first test don't miss out on a great and kind teacher! Thanks Linda!
Linda understood me and is figuring out where my weaknesses are for NCLEX questions. She is very easy to talk to and I'm happy she is going to help guide me in better studying skills.
Linda teaches me in her own way. She suggested what I should have studied earlier and what I should have studied later. She also taught me how to manage my time to start an effective study. She provided me her own material and went over each point which I may miss it or have problem for understanding the questions. Recommend Lisa for ESL students and the students who want to success in passing NCLEX exam.
Linda is an AMAZING tutor and makes me feel so much more confident about passing the NCLEX. She reviews various questions and rationales in depth, while teaching me various strategies on how to get to the right answer. I can't wait for many more sessions with Linda!
We went over different recommended study materials, plan for the next couple weeks, and practice questions. We also went over slowing down the number of tests taken each week to focus on quality of questions, not quantity.
She is patient, knowledgeable, and nonjudgmental.
It was a great first lesson. I can't wait to start working with Linda and really dive into the material!
I failed NCLEX twice and was pretty discouraged about it. I went to several review courses and bought many different study books but what I really needed was direction. That's when I found Linda on Wyzant. Right away, she was able to identify my strengths and weaknesses. She put together a study plan tailored for me. We had 6 or 7 sessions and I passed my NCLEX 3rd time with the minimum 75 questions. Please consider her as a tutor, she is very good at what she does, straight up.
Linda showed me sample questions that helped me recognize same concepts from various questions. This practice allowed me to work through a process of targeting the topic of the question, what do I know about the topic and what are the risk and concerns the question is asking. My time with her was well used and guides me towards the right track using a simple and clear study plan.
Linda has taught me to really slow down when answering each question. She was extremely patient and polite when going over questions. She provided helpful feedback, new perspectives and tips to consider when breaking down each answer choice.
I learned that the best way to prepare for NCLEX is by following her plan and to keep things simple. We talked about things I should not do when studying and why these approaches were less efficient. After my lesson with Linda I felt like I had taken the most important step forward. I now have a clear plan to start going over questions in practice mode.
My tutoring session with Linda G. was excellent!!! I want to continue to work with her. She immediately pointed out my weaknesses as well as strengths. I found her easy to talk to as well as work with.
Linda is very knowledgeable and patient when preparing you for the NCLEX. Her techniques really help and work. I recommend her for all of your tutoring needs in preparation. She provided me with valuable materials in which aided me in success of the NCLEX exam! Thank you Linda! I will definitely be referring others to you in the future!
She's very thorough and she wants to make sure I understood every question before moving on to the next one. She's very patient and her teachings are very easy to understand. Thanks again!
I was getting ready to take the NCLEX for the second time but couldn't get my practice test scores up. Once I met with Linda that all changed. She gave me great strategies to look at the questions differently and gave me the confidence boost I needed. She is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor. I was so excited when I passed and know that Linda was a huge reason for that.
She made me gain more confidence in myself that I thought was never possible. I like how she's patient, has a study plan professionally ready our first session. She's helped me accomplish in my first session direction on what is a must to memorize and how to deeply dissect into hard questions. I can't wait for my next sessions and to hopefully pass the NCLEX with her. She is a great tutor and can't wait for our next sessions.
With Linda we went over a vague review of how she organizes her tutoring sessions and we went over around 15 q's. I love how Linda gives you so much confidence when reviewing questions.
Linda is doing an excellent job explaining to me how to break down the questions, and how to really look at them differently. I know this will take time to learn this different style of thinking, but I know Linda will help me succeed. Im looking forward to our next lesson. Thanks Linda.
I took the NCLEX two times going 265 questions both times and not passing. After my lessons with Linda I was able to pass the NCLEX on my third attempt in 75 questions.
Linda was a huge help and gave me excellent strategies on answering all the different type of NCLEX questions. She also helped me with my test anxiety and my confidence.
I highly recommend Linda for all your NCLEX needs
My wife and I both failed our NCLEX the first time we took it. We hired Linda as our tutor. She worked with each of us together during every tutoring session. Linda helped us learn how to break down the question, take our time on each question, and how to understand what the question is asking. She taught us how to dig deep inside and use our nursing knowledge to answer each question. After working with Linda during a session, it was easier to understand where each of our content knowledge was lacking. We both retook the NCLEX on June 1st, and are extremely proud to say that we both passed! We feel that Linda was instrumental in helping each of us pass, and would highly recommend her to anyone who has failed the NCLEX, or who feels unsure of taking it the first time. Thank you Linda!!
Mrs. Linda is a patient tutor who really makes sure you grasp the understanding of the questions. She was able to identify my weak areas right away. I am thankful for her knowledge about the NCLEX and her methods of how to approach each question. I am looking forward to having more tutoring sessions with her.
Linda is very informative and really took the time to go over questions different styles and going about different ways of a answering nclex style questions, taking my time and figuring out what the question is really asking ,she has an amazing personality and patient and has giving me the boost that I needed to take the nclex with confidence
Linda's strategy to prepare for NCLEX worked very well for me. I sat for the Exam two times and failed before deciding to seek a tutor. I passed on my third attempt because she taught me to slow down and focus on quality and not quantity. She knows her stuff and more importantly for me, she is good at identifying weak areas and what you need to work on. If you are considering Linda as a tutor I highly recommend her. You will not regret it, it's worth every penny.
I graduated from a nursing school and had worked as a nurse overseas. I thought she would be able to help me becasue her tutoring was specialized in NCLEX and ESL. I was right. On our first session today, she checked how I read, thought and answered NCLEX style questions, and gave me objective evaluation and some advice. I needed it. Thank you Linda for bringing my motivation back!
I would like to encourage everyone to take on line tutoring classes with Linda!
As a foreign Nurse I had a hard time passing the NCLEX-RN the first time. I found it very different and challenging from what I was used on. Since I moved to the US I thought that my nursing carrier might be over. But as they say: "once a nurse, is always a nurse", I just couldn't let go. I decided to look for help. Luckily, I found Linda on WyzAnt website, and was determined to give it a try. From the beginning Linda showed me that she was the right tutor for me. First, she assess your strengths and weaknesses, then with a great approach and a lot of patience she works along with you on your road to success. She pays attention to details, and makes sure you improve significantly in a short period of time. After couple of online tutoring classes I started to improve as well in all of the "critical" areas and most importantly to gain confidence and tools to pass my test.
Today I'm a proud RN and I call Linda "My NCLEX-RN Angel Savior".:) Again, thank you Linda for everything you do!
Linda is very knowledgeable when it comes to breaking down nclex type questions. Her teaching methods are extremely helpful
I am a repeat test taker and after a few tries, felt the desperate need to search for other resources to help. I came across Linda and ended up working with her for a long time (about a year doing weekly/bi-monthly sessions). I finally passed with 79 questions in 4 hours. I really have to give Linda a lot of credit for being very, very flexible with her schedule, patient and positive with me throughout the tutoring process. She was literally my cheerleader. One of the things that I liked most about working with Linda is that she taught me how to identify my weaknesses, such as dealing with test anxiety and lack of endurance and we'll work from there. She talked me through questions and helped me identify why I was choosing certain answers and provided all in depth rationales. At some point, it all started to make sense. I must say, that she not only trained me to better test but ended up helping me build better learning habits and critical thinking skills. It was invaluable.
Thank you so much for the first lesson. I understand more and I like the way that you asked me to think what question is asking about and how to break down for each part of the question and what is the situation about. I like the materials and questions that you provided and used as the examples. It really helped me a lot to identify where I should focus and think through. I will listen to your advice and looking forward to see you again for the next lesson.
I worked with Linda for a few months, after failing my first attempt back in June (all 265 questions in 5hrs). She was very understanding and flexible when it came to scheduling and answering questions. We talked about my speed when answering questions (which was fast) and she taught me how to pace myself. Which was a very big contributor as to why I didn’t pass the first time. I found myself fatigue, tired and not really understanding what the NCLEX was asking me. Another issue Linda helped me with was the amount of questions I did. I was under the impression (like many other NCLEX takers), that I needed to do hundreds of questions. Linda explained to me that it wasn’t the most efficient way and to build up to those long sets of questions. And she reminded me most importantly, to give myself a break…Those 7 hr days in the library quickly were cut down to 2-3hrs max.
Linda taught me how to really “read” the questions and provided me with an abundant amount of NCLEX style questions and rationales. We first worked one question at a time in the beginning and would discuss the answer, after some time I began to answer a full page of questions and discuss why and how I got to the answer. Talking through how I got the answer with Linda not only provided me with confidence but taught me that I can truly answer these questions. More importantly, that I still know my content. If I felt weak in an area, she would always provided questions to assist me!
Linda provided me with a lot of support and advice. As you know life happens and things just get crazy and Linda was very accommodating. We met in person and online and both were very beneficial. Linda I am very grateful to have connected with you. And because of it I passed the NCLEX on 12/17/15 with 150 questions. I took my time and remembered each question was a NEW question and to not dwell. Thank you for all your patience and guidance.
P.S- I landed a Med-Surg job and start in a few weeks!
I found Linda when i was desperately looking for extra help passing my NCLEX. I had failed my first attempt with 265 questions in 6hrs. I was devastated. When I began studying the second time around, I noticed I needed some help improving my test taking skills and understanding of the questions. That's when I found Linda, her bio caught my eye. English is a second language for myself and I had difficult understanding to concept and topic to questions partly because of it. Linda was able to identify my weak areas and simplify the questions for my understanding. She is very flexible with her schedule, patient, knowledgeable, and supplied her know questions. She explain many test taking tips and strategies to help succeed in the NCLEX. Linda helped me slow down and thoroughly read the questions building my confidence while lowering my anxiety. I had really bad test anxiety on my first attempt. After 2 months of weekly meetings, I passed the NCLEX with 104 questions. I greatly appreciate Linda and all her help, I highly recommend her.
Linda has been an amazing tutor to work with. She really takes the time to get to know each person individually and focus on what they are needing help with. She is very easy to get ahold of and is very flexible with what works best for you. I highly recommend Linda as your NCLEX tutor!
Very patient and gives great tips and strategies for the NCLEX. Very happy with the help given and plan to return for many more sessions.
Dear Mrs. Linda,
I am happy to inform you that on December 7th I bench marked my exit HESI with a score of 927. After numerous hours of study and practice I am finally able to enjoy my hard work. I wanted to thank you for all the practice and tips you gave me in preparation for this exam. Your practice questions, study guides and techniques for breaking down a question really helped me to get the passing grade. I am currently waiting for the Board of nursing to give the go ahead to take the NCLEX and start my career as a nurse. Thank you again for all that you did.
Linda is amazing. She thoroughly understands and appreciates the challenges current students face. Her strategies are applicable to every subgroup of NCLEX and HESI testing. She is patient, understanding, encouraging and challenging in the best way. I am in an accelerated graduate program with a difficult schedule and an intense pace. She is easy going and able to work with me within that structure. I highly recommend working with Linda.
I am a repeat test taker and I tutored with Linda 4 or 6 times because I was desperate to pass the NCLEX. Linda squeezed me into her schedule and we started to work on questions and review for the NCLEX. My problem was that I read to fast and my mind moves faster than my eyes so i would miss key words. Once i started to move fast Linda would force me to slow down by talking slow and having me read the rationale slow and that helped me slow down by answering the questions. She is a great tutor we worked together for about a 1hr 30 min once a week then when the test got closer we moved to twice a week. She also helped me with different strategies for answering the questions that other companies that I used prior to using Linda did not tell me. She is great I would recommend her to anyone who wants to pass NCLEX she is great.
Linda is excellent! She was able to show me how to break down NCLEX style questions so that I could better understand what is being asked. She recommended the best ways for me to focus on content without having to go through a pricey online review and she makes you feel comfortable during this process.
I was feeling pretty down on myself with my recent results but you gave me the motivation I needed to get back on track! Thank you Linda!
Linda was a great tutor, she was patient and very well informed on the subject.
She gave me some great tips in test taking, and I would recommend her to anyone
who needs help.
Thank you Linda for your time.
I like the way Linda walks you through questions to identify your thinking process as you answer NCLEX practice questions. This has been very helpful!
Linda understands the NCLEX. She was able to focus on my needs, assess my strengths and weaknesses and give me guidance where I needed it.
Linda taught me how to break down the question to see what the question was asking me. What I like about Linda is that she is really patient and that she made sure that I understood the question before we went to the next one. What Linda helped me accomplish is patience when it comes to reading each question. This was a great session!
First off, I would like to say that whether you are a repeat test-taker (like myself) or first time test taker NCLEX-RN can seem very intimidating and stressful. Linda alleviates all of this!! I worked with Linda for approx 3 months after being unsuccessful my first two attempts at NLCEX - took all 265 questions both times with exactly the same results both times :( After Linda's initial assessment of me, she was able to determine exactly what my weakness was!! Personally for me, it was my test question strategy. We worked on breaking multiple higher level questions down using strategies she offered. Those strategies are why I JUST PASSED my NLCEX with approx 118 questions!!! If you are struggling to pass NCLEX or needing extra help, PLEASE SEARCH NO FURTHER!!!! Linda was very flexible with tutoring times to fit various schedules , encouraging, patient and extremely knowledgeable. Also, we did all our lessons on-line as we live in different states and it the online classroom was very user friendly and easy to navigate. I feel so blessed to have come across Linda's profile here on WyzAnt; she IS the reason I can say I finally PASSED this final hurdle that us nursing students must overcome to begin practicing nursing. Thank You, Linda... Words cannot express the gratitude and excitement I feel! You ROCK :)))
Linda was professional and made herself available to fit my schedule. In regards to teaching, she helped approaching the question in different ways and was great with showing the different strategies which gave me the confidence I needed in feeling calm throughout the exam. I recommend Linda as a tutor to assist in passing the NCLEX RN.
Linda G is an excellent tutor and helped me develop confidence in my test taking thought processes and strategies. She provided me with thorough notes correlating with the material she went over and our session were highly productive. I have recently passed my NCLEX exam and have her to thank for the training of my brain in "test mode" and how to manage during a highly stressful exam. I did audio sessions with her online where we could go over questions she would display on the WyzAnt interface and I would talk through questions and say my reasoning out loud. Overall I found Linda to be very helpful to me, as an audio and visual learner, the methods used to teach proved to be very beneficial to me. If you can see her in person, well even better! I highly recommend Linda G as an NCLEX tutor. If you're looking to sharpen your test taking abilities and thought process or just need some more hands on guidance in your preparation for NCLEX Linda is highly qualified to help you!
Thanks again, Linda!
She has restored confidence needed to successfully prepare for a difficult nursing exam. Within minutes she was able to zero in on the problem my husband was having with NCLEX type questions. I can't express how blessed I feel to have found this company and Linda! God bless you Linda G., you went above and beyond.
I did four lessons with Linda. She was a great tutor and explained how to answer the questions. I had taken the NCLEX-RN three times previously getting 265 questions. I can finally say that I passed on the fourth time with 265 questions. Thank you Linda!
I highly recommend Linda! After failing NCLEX the first time, I knew that I needed additional help in order to be successful. Linda is very knowledgeable, patient, and overall a genuinely kind person. She knows what it takes to beat NCLEX and provides you with the tools to reach your goal. Thanks to Linda I can finally say I am nurse!
- Diana RN
In desperation I was looking for help passing NCLEX. After 3 attempts (each time taking the entire 265 questions), I knew I needed something more. I came across Linda's profile, read her reviews and background; I was definitely impressed and decided to take a chance. Right away Linda was able to assess my weakness. She was patient, knowledgeable, easy to connect with, and offered great study tricks and tips. Just recently I am happy to report I passed with 77 questions and am a RN! I really do owe this to Linda. She helped build my confidence and approach this beast of a test in a different way. Making the decision to connect with Linda is one I am grateful for. Thank you Linda for all your help!
I signed up with Linda after failing my NCLEX. I was immediately impressed when I met her. She first looked over my NCLEX score to assess what my weaknesses were, and we started getting to work right away. Every session we had, she was very prepared and brought her own materials. She brought tons of practice questions, medication cheat sheets, and more.
Linda helped me to really work through the questions and think about what it was really asking. I started to see a vast improvement in how I attacked the questions. I ended up passing my NCLEX in 83 questions thanks to Linda. I recommend her to anyone. She is absolutely the best!!
After not passing NCLEX I was feeling very discouraged and hesitant to try again. I started working with Linda and she gave me the confidence I needed to pass. She was very patient and always took time to answer any questions I had. She made me feel like I could do it! I have never worked with a better tutor. I highly recommend Linda for anyone that needs an extra boost. She was truly fantastic. I took my test again and passed and I owe it all to Linda. She made my dream come true!
This was my first meeting with Linda G. but her background in nursing and teaching Kaplan is going to be very instrumental for me to pass the NCLEX. Linda's manner is calm and her technique on how to prepare for the NCLEX is excellent!
I needed some extra help preparing for my NCLEX exam. Linda provided great practice questions and taught me different ways to approach and think about each question. She also helped me identify my weaknesses so I knew what to focus on. Using her methods and study plan I was able to pass the NCLEX the first time!
After being unsuccessful with the NCLEX multiple times I finally began researching for tutors and found Linda. She helped me realize the majority of my problem was from test anxiety. She is an amazing tutor that is very knowledgeable and patient, and will work with you on testing strategies to master the NCLEX. She helped me increase my self confidence which is half the battle. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
I contacted Linda through WyzAnt after I failed the NCLEX-RN. A friend in a similar situation recommended her and I am very fortunate he did. Linda is patient, prompt, knowledgeable, and a good teacher. She taught me a new approach to the NCLEX exam which proved beneficial. While Linda made me feel more confident and prepared for the exam, she was also straightforward and honest with me about weaknesses I needed to strengthen. She helped me develop a plan to re-take my exam and evaluate my progress every session to make sure I was on track. She has great materials and questions for practice. One of the biggest things I was able to take away from our sessions was increased confidence. I was really down after not passing the first time so this new confidence fueled me going into my second attempt. I passed my NCLEX and I know it was in part because of her help.
Ms. Linda is a very good tutor. She is very easy to talk to, super nice, patient, and a very good teacher. I took two different RN-NCLEX test prep courses and attempted the NCLEX twice and was unsuccessful. I then found this website and contacted Ms. Linda for help. I quickly learned that she taught me more than the test prep courses that I spent A LOT of money on and did not work. She walked me through step by step until I was able to do it on my own. Not only did she help me understand how to answer NCLEX style questions, she also helped me build back my confidence. I retook the exam on Friday and I just learned that I PASSED!!! I highly recommend Ms. Linda! I couldn't have done this without her.
Linda is amazing. She finds methods to make learning fun for our daughter. She is always prompt and professional. She has incredible patience and a keen ability to channel our daughter's energies into educational exercises.
Linda is a fabulous tutor. She is patient, honest, and truly wants you to be successful! Her tips & insights really helped me approach each question confidently - In addition to looking for patterns and slowing down. I would definitely recommend Linda to anyone who needs a little extra help and one-on-one time with their NCLEX studies!
Linda is a great tutor. She is patient, kind, and really has a passion for helping her students. After working with Linda, I was able to pass the NCLEX RN Board. She is very accommodating to your time schedule and needs. She helped me on improving my problem areas and how to become a better test taker. The first time we met, we hit it off. While working with Linda, I felt more confident in my abilities and ready to take the Board. Thank you so much Linda for all your help and guidance. Definitely the best tutor I have ever had!
This week Linda helped me to continue to slow down my answering of questions. She also prompted me to identify what each question was really asking, and how I could eliminate answers based on simply reading what was given. Each session with Linda I gain more confidence and jump off to the next day with a more positive testing attitude. They are extremely valuable tutoring sessions. Thanks Linda!!!
Again Linda's insight and knowledge in working through these questions with me continues to improve my confidence in answering these questions. She never rushes me, and at times prompts me to think about the questions in alternative ways so that I may come to the answer more efficiently. I thoroughly appreciate the time we have spent together. I believe it will pay off when it comes time to take the NCLEX once again. Thanks you so much Linda!!!
She knows very well San Francisco and she has a lot of information that like to share with her students.
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.
I have many years experience working as a reading tutor and volunteer with children from pre-school to high school levels. I teach English vocabulary, reading, and language arts to children who speak another language at home as well as general kindergarten readiness. I have developed many resources and learning materials that will keep a young child interested and excited about learning.
Although I do not have formal training as a teacher, I have several years experience hosting teenagers and young adults for English immersion homestays. This involves evaluating each student's language ability and creating my own lesson plans based on the individual's interests and needs. I also have volunteer experience leading conversation practice groups for ESL students at a local ESL school.
I am a registered nurse and I taught NCLEX prep classes for a national test preparation company for several years. I am prepared to work with students on test-taking strategies specific to NCLEX type questions.
