1hr will be charged to students who don't cancel their lesson 4 hrs prior. This is in the interest of fairness to both myself and students who could have potentially had that lesson time.
I reached out to Nicole after being unsuccessful on the NCLEX not one, not two, but THREE times. I knew I couldn't get through this NCLEX journey on my own. The moment I met Nikki, I knew that she was going to help me reach my goal of passing the NCLEX. She uses many different review books that ensures you will never get the same question more than one. Not only does she give you tons of questions to practice with, but she is great at doing a solid content review, which I found was a big reason why I hadn't been passing in my previous attempts. Nikki taught me things that they never taught me in nursing school. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, but very patient, kind, and gives you relatable, real life nursing experiences of hers to help you understand the material better. Sure enough, on my fourth attempt, I passed the NCLEX-RN in 75 questions! It's all because of Nikki and all of the encouragement and knowledge she instilled in me. I will be forever grateful for her time and energy!
Where do I even begin?!?! I went in so desperate to pass the NcLex and Nicole told me from the beginning this isn't going to be a one month review. I was meeting with Nicole twice a week for about 6 months. She reviews all the material and provides enough questions for you to remember the content. She is very knowledgeable and will drill the content until you know it. Throughout your time with her, she will continue giving you questions from previous content. If you study the notecards, read, and do the questions, like she asks, I promise you she will help you pass. I never felt so prepared for the exam as I did this time around. I walked out of the test, called Nicole and she said I believe in you, you passed! 48 hours later I found out I was finally a RN!!!! BEST FEELING EVER!!! ALL THANKS TO NICOLE!
Overall Nicole is a walking nclex review book. She is very knowledgeable and patient. Looking forward to working with her.
Nicole is awesome! Definitely helps me understand the material much better!! She's an amazing nurse and teacher!
First, Nicole is flexible with accommodating you to the days you can meet with her. Second, I really like how she breaks all the content down, and goes with your pace of learning. I reached out to her because I didn't pass NCLEX the first time. I will come back and update my results. But so far, I'm liking it.
I cannot even begin to describe how amazing Nicole has been in tutoring me for my success at NCLEX after 4 failed attempts. After researching possible tutors to help, Nicole seemed like the perfect fit. I messaged her and almost instantly she got back to me with information to get me going. I was a little nervous at first, but that all went away as soon as I entered her home. Nicole was very kind and welcoming to me along with getting to know my studying styles and ways to improve them. I soon learned what I was doing wrong and by going through all body systems I had the chance to practice A LOT by doing a multitude of questions. The work may seem a little daunting and sometimes pretty rough, but I can attest to the fact that it is worth it!! I followed every instruction/tip Nicole had to offer me and it was not in vain. I ended up passing on my next attempt and could not have done it without her. If anyone is having difficulty passing the NCLEX like I did, I cannot recommend Nicole enough. She is absolutely amazing, patient, intelligent, and teaches through examples that just make it easy to understand. Thank you Nicole for everything, she truly was my angel in disguise!
My first tutor experience with Nicole was excellent. She's smart, very supportive, and reassuring. I will definitely refer some of my friends.
Nicole is awesome. Let me start off by saying that! I reached out for her help last minute right before my final exam in fundamentals. I was in need for help because I tried everything - peer tutoring at school and reaching out for help from my professor - and I had failed all my previous exams for fundamentals.
When I met with Nicole, I felt like I wasn't going to be able to pull off passing my final exam. Nicole sat down with me and went through 7 weeks of material explaining the things I didn't understand. She also helped me with pulling out the correct information from nursing style test questions (which is something I was really struggling with). Needless to say, I passed my final exam with a 91% and I passed my class! I am much more confident in fundamentals test taking!
I was studying for the NCLEX-RN and since I learn material better through repetition and review, I was looking for a tutor. Nicole was very patient with me, and through her own personal assessment of how I learn, she was able to break down the material in a way that was understandable, and easy to learn. She also has fun study tips like using note-cards to help remember medications. She also provides great examples and uses life experiences to help you remember medications and nursing interventions.
She never made me feel incompetent, or undermined me. She has many years of nursing experience in the ICU and surgery unit, so she definitely knows what she is talking about and practices what she preaches.
A great asset for anyone that is studying for the brutal NCLEX-RN exam and feels they learn better through one on one focused teaching and review. I thought I would never pass the brutal test since they just changed some of the testing format for 2014. She only lets you sign up for the test once she is confident that you are ready, so you never feel like you are going through this stressful experience alone.
I would never have passed if I did not have the support of this amazing nurse. Every subject, disease process and medication that she had me review (over and over on a daily basis) was on that test! When I finally took the test, I felt prepared and confident. I had a lot of difficult level questions and my test ended on a select all that apply! And I am now a licensed nurse. I highly recommend this tutor!!
Nicole was an excellent tutor and I truly could not have passed the NCLEX without her help!!! She was extremely patient, always willing to help, never minded repeating the notes and she knew the material better than anyone I've ever worked with. She provided real life situations to help me understand the material and also gave me homework after each session. This helped me because I had to make many note cards and take many quizzes. While taking the NCLEX, there were many questions that I had that I remember Nicole and I talking about. I HIGHLY recommend anyone and everyone to go to Nicole for a tutor to pass the NCLEX. She was a true life saver! Thanks Nicole!!
Nicole is very good at tutoring and is very knowledgeable. I enjoy very much working with her as she is detailed, patient and explains things. She assisted me on a case study and was able to help me format it for my Respiratory Therapy class.
I've been working with Nicole for several months now and I couldn't be happier. She is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. If you are in nursing school, you would benefit from her help. God Bless You, Nicole!
Everyone learns in different ways and at a different pace; Nicole is a great tutor who will cater to your needs. She has a very warm personality and is willing to dedicate time to help you succeed. Whether you are ready to be quizzed on material or you want to review the material together for a more interactive learning approach, Nicole is ready for whatever you decide. Very patient and overall excellent tutor!
Nicole C. Is an excellent Tutor. She has a vast knowledge about nursing. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help. She had real world experiences and examples. The best indicator of her ability to tutor is that I passed the Nclex!
My wife and I have tried to learn a foreign language before but the various teachers/tutors we had lessened our desire instead of enhancing it! We decided to try and learn Italian and found Nicole through WyzAnt! In summary, Nikki was awesome!
Nikki gave three of us Italian lessons over the course of three months. There was my wife, our good friend Nicole and myself. We all work at the same facility and Nikki right away was willing to come and meet us during our lunch hour (once/week). Nikki was always on time and ready for our lesson. She made us want to learn. But it was more than that. You could tell she loved Italy and loved Italian. She is Italian, so I am sure that helped! She bonded right away with my wife and Nicole and they enjoyed Nikki's company very much.
Nikki had us get a college level book (introductory book to Italian) and went through sections of that book with us. She did give us some homework which we didn't do as much as we should of but Nikki was enthusiastic as ever each lesson. She made learning fun and didn't get on our case when we spoke English and was very encouraging to us even when we got answers wrong.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Nikki to anyone learning Italian. She is Italian, breathes Italian and is a wonderful person, mother and each lesson was like being with a good friend. If we decide to continue on our quest to become fluent in Italian we will certainly continue with her. For now we are heading to the Italian Island Sardinia and will be able to speak some Italian on our cycling tour because we had Italian lessons with Nikki! Thanks for all your help and patience Nikki!
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 am a native English speaker who also speaks Italian and conversational Spanish. The languages of our house are both Italian and English, as our family's native language is Italian. I learned Spanish growing up with a good friend whose parents were Guatemalan immigrants. I therefore feel very comfortable with people who are not proficient in English. I would love to help you explore learning English!!
