ENJOYABLE LEARNING

I love learning and sharing my knowledge, which is why I love my job as a professor at FAU. If learning is fun, we all remember how to maneuver through an activity which we learned by having fun. When we are enjoying an activity, we become relaxed and receptive to active learning. Being quickly successful at the beginning of a learning process builds confidence in an area of difficulty. Motivation is tied to Achievable goals and builds the confidence required to achieve...

I have for more than 6 years been teaching study and testing skills at the University level. I teach this to freshman in a group environment at FAU as needed. I completed successfully, at University of Miami, a course on the teaching skills and methods for both study and testing skills. Many of our university students come to the college classroom with poor time management and study skills, struggling for even a "C". I have tutored students in private sessions resulting in a 1-2 grade increase. Although there is not a one skill list fits all, with individual adjustments to there approach everyone can increase their grades. Using these essential methods, when applied correctly, improve subject material comprehension resulting in improved grades. Beyond the basic when and where factors, there is a deeper level of reading and listening comprehension. Often a student hears the lecture in class and read the word in the text but fails to listen or understand the concept or statements. With practiced study skills, student frustration diminishes resulting in better comprehension and retention. Good study skills are often ignored until poor grade become a factor but it is a problem which can improve with guidance, implementation and practice.

Excellent Tutor for NCLEX RN, BSN Board

Dr. Louis was a great tutor. He really did a great job of making me look at my weaknesses heading into the NCLEX exam. He challenged me with lots of extra material which I believe really helped me before the exam. He does a great job of keeping the mood easy going and laid back during the lessons, and seems to just love talking about nursing and sharing his wisdom in the field as well. I would highly recommend him as a tutor! 5 Stars! I’m confident I wouldn't have gotten through it without his help.
