About Rachel


Bio

I began tutoring special needs children in the 5th grade and fell in love with teaching. After receiving both an Associates of Arts (2001) and Associates of Science in Nursing (2009), I found that I could do two things I love; care for those in need and teach! I received straight A’s throughout all of my nursing courses and I tutored other students along the way.

I began tutoring special needs children in the 5th grade and fell in love with teaching. After receiving both an Associates of Arts (2001) and Associates of Science in Nursing (2009), I found that I could do two things I love; care for those in need and teach! I received straight A’s throughout all of my nursing courses and I tutored other students along the way.
After receiving my RN, have worked in various areas of nursing, including Telemetry, Med/Surg, Charge Nurse, and Supervisor. I also became certified in wound and ostomy care. I have worked extensively with newly hired staff on assessment techniques, pharmacology, medical terminology, understanding telemetry, wound care, and critical thinking skills. My favorite motto: The only stupid question is the one you didn’t ask. Favorite question for my students: Does it make sense?

The human body is fascinating! While I tutor Anatomy and Physiology, my real passion is helping nursing students grasp the concept of critical thinking skills. To become a nurse, you have to train your brain to think a bit differently than you are used to. And I have some good tricks up my sleeve to remember the classification of many medications, as well as their uses and side effects.

I have been writing and proofreading since High School. I won awards for poetry at the collegiate level while a Freshman in High School. I have assisted students with both MLA and the dreaded APA format used in Nursing School.

I was the first person in my class to both take and pass the NCLEX with only 75 questions. I can help you select appropriate prep material. The trick is to use those critical thinking you have developed combined with test taking strategies that I can help you develop.

I look forward to helping you, not just succeed, but to excel. I can help you improve your grades, pass your classes and your NCLEX, while preparing you for the real life experiences you will encounter as a new nurse.

I passed my NCLEX on my first attempt with 75 questions. I have had ample time as a floor nurse, charge nurse, house supervisor, and wound/ostomy care specialist to put into practice all of those critical thinking skills that you will need to pass your boards. I’ve done hospital orientation for new hires, and have worked with new grads as a mentor (they orient with me on the floor for up to 4-6 weeks depending on their progress) which involves extensive teaching. I can help with strategies that will assist you achieve a better outcome on your exam.

First study session was great!

Rachel was able to iron out the basics of Oxygenation that I had so much trouble understanding and applied them in a clinical setting. I would definitely continue learning with her!

Realistic views and patient teacher

Rachel and I worked on prioritizing- which is an area I’m weak in. After the first session I felt like she had given me a couple tools to use for that and delegation- which was another area I was weak in. Overall- a great first session and I look forward to the next one with her.

Knowledgeable

Meeting with Rachel provided me with the last bit of clarity that I needed before my test. I know I have what I need to take the NCLEX after discussing my weak points and worries.

Very helpful and patient

After one lesson I already feel more confident in my studies for the NCLEX to be successful on the test. She is very knowledgeable and has some great study tips.

Rachel is GREAT!

Rachel helped me tremendously! I approved my knowledge, test-taking abilities, and confidence! If I ever need help as a new graduate RN on a subject that I’m not getting or a confidence booster to tell me that I CAN do this I will be back! I can’t say more about her teaching and nclex prep methods, she’s AMAZING!

Great NCLEX-RN tutor

I came on Wyzant to find help before I took the NCLEX-RN next week. I was studying with other resources but still wanted a confidence booster and reassurance before I took my NCLEX and I was definitely able to find that with Rachel. She went through the outside resources I used and analyzed them herself to find where my weaknesses were! We only spent one session together but I already felt 100% better about the material I wasn’t so confident on! I’m so glad I found Rachel and she was able to give me the confidence I needed before taking the NCLEX. Definitely consider using Rachel for NCLEX or nursing school help!
