Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ADHD

I am a nurse practitioner with extensive psychiatric background in adult and adolescent areas. I have treated patients with ADD/ADHD as well as given lectures to other health care professionals on this subject.

Biostatistics

I am highly skilled at assessing specific learning styles and building on these. I have 40+ years experience in the health care field and have taught at the university level. I am a nurse practitioner and have participated in obtaining data for research and clinical trials. My students tend to do well and score above average.

NCLEX

I have been a nursing instructor for University of Louisville and Spencerian College. I helped to develop strategies to improve NCLEX pass rates for ADN students in the Spencerian program when the school was on probation with KBN for poor success rates.

Nutrition

I am a nurse practitioner with extensive background in nutritional needs of adult and adolescent clients. I have treated patients with various nutritional defecits as well as given lectures on this subject.

Pharmacology

I taught pharmacology in the nursing programs at University of Louisville as well as Spencerian College. I have an advanced degree in nursing practice which requires annual CEU's in pharmacology to remain current with new medications.

Public Speaking

I have spoken on a broad range of subjects to diverse audiences. Among the groups I have lectured are colleagues in the health care field, girl scout troops, church groups and professional associations. I am proficient in assisting students develop and present in a confident manner the four basic speech types- informative, demonstrative, persuasive, and entertaining. I have been involved in various story-telling activities in the Louisville area, and have taught public speaking at post-secondary education level.

Great tutor!

Shari was amazing to work with. Very flexible with her schedule. She helped me prepare for the Nclex-RN, we reviewed content that I wasn't very comfortable with and did lots of practice questions. Definitely felt a lot more comfortable going into the exam and passed the first try!!! :) Great tutor!!
