To whom it may concern
I had the pleasure of working and getting to know Ms. Catherine J. over the past three months when she tutored and helped me prepare my NCLEX. Kate, as I have grown accustomed to call her, is dependable, thorough, compassionate, and knowledgeable.
First of all, her mastery of the content area comes through the ease and comfort with which she explains the intricacies of complex nursing concepts. Her familiarity with the NCLEX is also an invaluable asset whereby she knows how plan a whole review scheme so to focus on the essential component of the test. I appreciate how she gives clients the autonomy to accept or reject her suggested action plan.
Kate has also proved her professionalism by her punctuality and ability to make all our scheduled appointment. She has communicated with me effectively throughout the whole process.
After completing the battery of review tests she gave me, I became fully confident and familiar with what to expect on the exam. It goes without saying that I took and passed the exam with great comfort and ease after working with her.
I strongly recommend Ms. Kate to those new graduate nurses who want to enhance their confidence level and versatility with the NCLEX content area prior to taking this challenging exam. Not only is she competent, but she is also patient, compassionate, and a tutor who teaches out experience. Finally, Kate had my interest at heart and encouraged me throughout the whole process. I can say without exaggeration that she is a very caring and motivational educator.
Kate really cares and wants me to pass my final exam with a very good grade. Even if we meet once a week, she emails me every couple of days to see how I'm doing on the review questions she gave me. She is very easy to reach and replies quickly to emails. When we do meet she goes over the problems with me and spends extra time on the ones I don't understand or got wrong. She helps very much with helping me think of ways to remember certain concepts. Overall I would say that she is a great tutor and I would completely recommend her to other students. She has helped me so much.
I contacted Kate about a month ago and ever since then she has been helping me every step of the way. She has lots of great NCLEX materials to work with and great knowledge about how to conquer this test. It is very evident that she cares about nursing and really wants her students to pass the test. She tailors our study sessions to my needs and always encourages me. Kate is a great tutor and can help ease your NCLEX worries and get you to where you need to be.
Jeff met with my daughter for an hour and half and gave him specific guidelines to follow in preparation for the NCLEX. He feels confident that with her help and guidance he can pass the NCLEX soon. They plan to meet again next week.
Catherine is very nice, patient and understanding. She gave me great idea to get back on track and confidence to pass nclex as I was thinking for going back to school. I feel so lucky that Kate is there to help me. I would recommend Kate to anyone who needs help with nclex exam.
I met with Kate twice, and she is fabulous to work with. You can immediately tell her dedication to helping students pass the NCLEX exam. Right after the first meeting, she sent me emails with information to study, gave me a program to assess my skills, then used that feedback to tailor a study session specific to my needs. She is kind, patient, and great to work with! I would recommend Kate to anyone studying to pass the NCLEX. She definitely goes above and beyond to make herself available for help.
Catherine and I have met a bunch of times at this point and I'm having a blast. We came up with a great idea today to get me back on track and am super excited about getting that started in our next meeting. Not only is she willing to help me learn the content my course is attempting to fly through, but she is really pulling in NCLEX information that is super important. Can't wait to really get into the "drugs" for Pharm and understand their applications for real life nursing and the NCLEX!!
Catherine is very patient and understanding. She can relate well with any situation your in.
She is very flexible and sets up any study plan that works with your schedule. She makes you feel confident when you're studying. I would gladly recommend Catherine.
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.
