About Daniel

Nursing programs are hard. The pre-req sciences are tough. Anatomy & Physiology is the workload of two courses. 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.

After graduation, I worked as a pediatric nurse for three years. I now split my time between independently tutoring and teaching CPR and First Aid classes. 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 Anatomy & Physiology, Health Assessment, Fundamentals, Med-Surg, Pediatrics, and Pharmacology. 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 can help you reach those endpoints.

I meet with some students weekly, some biweekly, and some only three or four times a semester to review before an exam. More new graduate nurses are being produced than ever before; new graduates are entering a difficult job market. Grades matter, and the cusp is a terribly uncomfortable place to live. My tutoring can help.

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.

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.


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.

The best tutor I could have asked for! — After failing the NCLEX in August, I reached out to Dan for help. We met weekly for a couple months and I also attended his group class which I definitely recommend. He was so helpful that I passed the second time in only 77 questions, which really shows how much he helped me turn around my studying in a pretty short time period. His 21-page study guide (distributed at the group class) has some of ...
