About Daniel


Bio

Nursing programs are hard. Then once clinicals begin you are always busy, and you spend a decent chunk of time worried about accidentally hurting someone. You are perpetually stressed, constantly reading, always studying, and occasionally breaking down and going insane for a little bit before pulling yourself back together to make flashcards for the million new terms you have to learn. Sound familiar? I understand. I've been there.

Nursing programs are hard. Then once clinicals begin you are always busy, and you spend a decent chunk of time worried about accidentally hurting someone. You are perpetually stressed, constantly reading, always studying, and occasionally breaking down and going insane for a little bit before pulling yourself back together to make flashcards for the million new terms you have to learn. Sound familiar? I understand. I've been there.

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, along with a Minor in Human Biology, from Salem State University in 2006 with a 3.73 GPA. I was awarded both the highest departmental, and highest college-level, awards for graduating seniors. While at Salem State, I supported myself by working in the college's Learning Center, tutoring my peers in chemistry, anatomy, and physiology. For my tutoring, I was presented with a "You Make A Difference" certificate by the Dean of Student Support Services.

I now split my time between working in pediatric home care and tutoring. I enjoy helping my students overcome the tremendous challenges nursing education presents so that they can graduate and then practice as a nurse and provide their patients with the best possible care. I tutor Health Assessment, Fundamentals, Med-Surg, Pediatrics, Pharmacology, and the NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN. Your classes only help you if you succeed in them, and you can only begin to recoup the massive investment of time and money a nursing education demands once you've graduated from your program and passed the NCLEX. I meet with some students weekly, some biweekly, and some only three or four times a semester to review before an exam.

If your dream is to excel and graduate from your program so you can confidently begin a rewarding career as a nurse, but you need some help reaching that endpoint, then please message me because I'm glad to help.

NCLEX

NCLEX

Dan earned his Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, along with a Minor in Human Biology, from Salem State University. The NCLEX-RN is the challenging, cumulative board exam to become a Registered Nurse. The NCLEX-RN covers all aspects of nursing, and it tests at higher levels of knowledge than most nursing exams. It’s no wonder that 12% of all first-time candidates fail, and the pass rate plummets to only 53% for repeat candidates while decreasing with each successive failure. Dan has developed a core curriculum that covers the most heavily-tested subjects including: medication calculations, arterial blood gas interpretation, lab values, prioritization and delegation, pharmacology, diabetes, endocrine disorders, respiratory disorders, and cardiac issues. Dan then combines that core curriculum with each student’s individual weaknesses, connects each student with the best study resources, and keeps the student on track with their independent studying. This recipe has helped many students overcome the NCLEX-RN, even those who had failed the exam multiple times previously.

Awesome tutor!

Dan is an awesome tutor! I boosted my meds Surg grade from 70% to 84% after a couple classes, and I received a final grade of B in the hardest class in my nursing school. Dan is very knowledgeable about all the study material. He also emailed me the notes of our discussions. English is my second language, I was struggling with nursing school and understanding some complex medical terminologies. However, Dan always encouraged me and taught me patiently during my studies. In addition, Dan arranged the time for me to prepare for my final exam during his family vacation! Thank you for my great tutor! Fanya, - 8 lessons with Daniel.

The best!! Extremely knowledgeable, concise and clear

Daniel saved my final nursing semester. I came to Daniel after my first exam, only scoring a 68%- I felt doomed. I was only months away from graduation and didn’t want to start off with such a low score. After contacting Daniel and having my first session- I scored an 86% on that next exam! Ever since our lessons I have scored consistently in the 80’s, finishing my last chapter test with an 88%. I was then able to only need a 49% on my final exam, which was such a relief! Daniel has shown me how to fully understand the challenging nursing concepts that were handed to me. I highly recommend Daniel, he always knows what points to explain that would be on my exams- over all it was irreplaceable knowledge & learning that I have received from him. :)

Fantastic tutor!

My name is Andrew, and I am currently a nursing student enrolled in an ADN nursing program. This past semester was the most challenging semester of schooling I have ever experienced. From the very first test the class made known how brutal it would be. There was an increased emphasis on at home learning, which I struggle with. And the tests were merciless and tricky. With only five tests and a final exam to give points in the semester, there is not a lot of room for error. I came to Daniel after failing the fourth exam. At this point my grade was failing, I was struggling immensely with the tests, and I did not have much hope for passing the class. Daniel explained that it would be a tall order, but he was willing to help. In our tutoring sessions, he helped break down and explain the information that would be on the next test. He made sure the concepts made sense, he taught the critical information I needed, and he presented everything in a way I could digest. No matter the topic, he has a wealth of knowledge and knew exactly what I needed to know. In two sessions he prepared me for my next test. And on that next test I scored 16 points higher than the previous! He then met with me again to prepare me for my final exam. Daniel went over test-taking strategies, priorities, and then helped me review key topics. Again, he talked about the most critical information that I needed to know and made sure I knew what was important. With this preparation, I felt confident going into the final exam. And I scored nearly the same as my last test! Between these two exams, I was able to pull my grade up to passing. I was also able to learn the information I was misunderstanding and absorb the knowledge I needed to be a proper nurse. I am so grateful for Daniel teaching me and preparing me. I believe his efforts helped turn me around from failing my semester, to instead soaring through the end, even re-learning what information I needed from earlier in the semester. Thank you Daniel!

AMAZING!

Dan is a great tutor and helped me pass my NCLEX-RN on my second go around. I went from having all 145 questions and failing with no tutor to passing in 75 questions with a tutor. He is knowledgeable, patient, and honest. He was always willing to help me talk out my lectures to get a better understanding of the material. Even with just 4 sessions he made the world of a difference. I recommend Dan to anyone that’s looking for some help passing anything nursing!

Professional/Prepared/Organized

I have been using Daniel’s tutoring service for a while, he helped me through my last semester of nursing school and is currently helping me for NCLEX. Every session he is prepared with his own material that is 100% related to NCLEX and he is ready to present questions and guide you through breaking them down and why the correct answer is the best choice. If you need a NCLEX or nursing school tutor, look no further, Daniel is the best. He is also very understanding and patient, consistently makes sure you understand the material before moving forward.

First day & great start!

I met with Daniel today for the first time to go over med/surg material. By the end of the session, I learned more about how to be a better test taker, developing clinical reasoning, and develop connections between different concepts. Also, I appreciated that Daniel continued to take time to make sure I understood what was being taught. Thanks, Daniel, --Dylan

Very knowledgeable and extremely patient NCLEX / Nursing tutor.

Dan taught my son how to analyze and understand the nuisances of nursing material. He helped him passed his NCLEX on the first attempt. My son certainly could not have even come close to passing the NCLEX; without Dan's invaluable experience and insight to taking, for my son, this daunting NCLEX Exam. The previous statement is based upon my son’s prior testing simulations where he scored well below the passing NCLEX threshold. After working with Dan, he was significantly above the passing threshold on similar practice exams. Dan, you're the BEST. How you remained patient and kept my son on topic is remarkable. Again, I truly thank you for your HELP and knowledge you imparted to my son. I cannot image a better tutor for anything nursing related, e.g., college exam prep, NCLEX Testing, etc. Emeritus, engineering instructor, Northeastern University / professional engineer.

Daniel has been super helpful in preparing me for the NCLEX! The outlines, take home quizzes are extremely beneficial, I am looking forward to his review class. I feel like I am retaining and understanding a lot more than when I was studying by myself!
