So Jack and his wife Ann S. are the best tutors in the world. I had lost all motivation that I would pass the TEAS test when I took it the first time and made a 74% and failing both the English and Science section with a 53% and 63% respectively. I had 5 weeks after I came home from Europe to improve my grade and happy to my school. I wanted it to be in person but found no one in my area. I then came across Ann's profile. They were online but they had amazing comments, so I decided to try them. I am so glad I did. They are the best tutors I have ever had. They were determined to help me and improve my score. They gave me positive encouragement the whole way. They even called me the day before and wished me good luck. When doing my lessons they were always onetime and if anything came up they made sure my session lasted an hour sometimes over. They were great and being online really helped. They even gave me practice test, made material for me, and much much more. I ended up retaking the test and making an 88% with a 81% in science and 87% in english!! I am so happy. Although they are expensive I would choose them for any tutoring I needed help on! They gave me the help and confidence I needed.

Jack was very eager to help me get a higher score on my TEAS Test. He was very patient and had many different ways to help me study for this test. Overall, I improved my science score from a 50% to a 70.8% with the tutoring from Jack. I would recommend him to anyone that needs help regarding these subjects! Thanks again!

Congratulations Michael! Your hard work was the difference. Thank you for the kind comments.

I just had my first session with Jack in preparation for the TEAS. He is very friendly and easy to learn from! We went over topics that I have struggled on in the past and he gave me new efficient strategies/approaches to the test questions. He listened to what I wanted to get out of our tutor session and made use of the hour accordingly. I loved that he not only helped me during the tutor session but also sent me home with reading materials, worksheets, and flashcards to review on my own. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an outstanding and knowledgeable tutor.

Jack is an excellent science tutor. His methodology is simple and tailored to the understanding of his student. He keeps his teaching simple and direct to the important facts that the student will need to do well in the subject. As a result, he guided and tutored my son, a 7th grader, from a B grade to an A grade in physical science. Jack, please keep up the great job.

Jack is not only challenging our daughter in math. He is also building her confidence as well. He knows just how far to raise the bar to keep her excited!

She is truly an outstanding young learner and a pleasure to teach! Thank you for your words of encouragement.

I recommend Jack to any of those struggling in the slightest bit with math or physical science. He is a patient teacher who works through every step of the problem to solve. I leave a tutoring session with him feeling confident about any/all questions I have. I just took my TEAS test and raised my score from a 75 to 88! I am ecstatic! Thank you Jack!

Congratulations Katherine!!! Your hard work paid off. It was my pleasure to work with a dedicated student like you. Your knowledge along with your preparation earned you the score you wanted. Way to go!!! If I ever need a nurse I hope they have your smarts.

Jack is an awesome tutor!!! He has truly helped my son understand and enjoy math!!! As a result, my son now has a much better grade in math, and he looks forward to his math lessons with Jack.

Thank you, Jack!!! Great job!!!

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 first began tutoring upper level math including ACT Prep over 20 years ago. As a certified experienced math teacher, I have helped countless students not only succeed, but excel with their ACT Math. Students preparing for the ACT need additional review and personalized practice presented in a patient and encouraging manner to be successful on the test. I am able to meet my math students where they are skill-wise and help each become much more successful. Many students often tell me, "I wish you were my math teacher," which is one of the greatest compliments I can receive because I know I have not only made a connection with my student but helped my students understand math and become better prepared to succeed on their test!

Algebra is both a fascinating and sometimes confusing math course. To do well, a student needs mastery of underlying PreAlgebra skills. I have years of experience working with students in all areas of algebra and all the basic support skills. In addition, I am certified grades 6-12 in math to work with students.

Algebra requires a multitude of skills and I have over 20 years of experience helping students understand and master Algebra. As a certified, experienced math teacher, I have helped countless students not only succeed, but truly master math. Often I find, students need additional review and practice presented in a patient and encouraging manner, or they need regular help with homework or test prep. No matter what the skill or learning challenge I am able to meet my math students where they are and help each become much more successful. Students often tell me, "I wish you were my math teacher!" This is one of the greatest compliments I can receive because I know I have not only made a connection with my students but helped my students understand Algebra!

As a professional tutor for the past 20 years, and a certified math teacher, I have helped countless students better understand the subject of geometry.

So, I am able to meet my math students where they are skill-wise and help each become much more successful.

As an professional tutor for the last 18 years, I have worked with students across the spectrum in a variety of test prep areas, including the TEAS. My Master's degree in Sports Medicine along with my experience as an Emergency Medical Technician allows me to provide much more detailed insight into the specific types of questions on the test. In my experience, I have found some test prep materials offered for the TEAS do not adequately prepare the test taker for the exam. Often, the test prep materials are watered down to the point of creating a false sense of security about the test taker's skill level. In having worked with many TEAS students, my medical background combined with my educational experience and certification has allowed me to identify the components needed for successful test taking. These include a reasonable time frame for improving skills, individualized instruction and periodic skill assessment and review.

The TEAS test is used as a tool to measure a prospective nursing student’s skills. The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is useful in predicting an individual’s chances of success in nursing school and identifies which applicants may need additional practice and review before entering a program. The test is scored in four areas, English, math, language and science, and contains 13 sub content areas. The test has a total of 170 questions and uses an objective format. There is a math portion of the TEAS and calculators cannot be used. Once the test is administered, results are usually available within 48 hours. Practice test are available to prospective students. In addition, there are study materials/manuals for extra review.

I first began tutoring college level Trigonometry and college and high school/college level Algebra over 20 years ago. So, my math expertise is broad based. Although I am a certified, experienced math teacher, I am much more than your typical tutor or teacher because my students often tell me, "I wish you were my math teacher!" This is one of the greatest compliments I can receive because I know I have helped students not only succeed, but excel with math. Sometimes, students need additional review and practice presented in a patient and encouraging manner, or they need regular support with homework or test prep. I am able to meet my Trigonometry students where they are and help each become much more successful with upper level math.
