Over the past 7 years, I have spent a lot of time teaching nursing and tutoring my current students. It's time to offer my services more students; anyone who needs one-to-one attention during the roughest, toughest parts of nursing school. For many students, just getting organized to study is a struggle, and they are searching for practical methods of studying; I can help.
Other times, students need guidance in a particular subject, like Anatomy and Physiology, Maternal-Child Health or Medical-Surgical Nursing when it gets difficult to break down an ocean of information into sizable and reasonable bits of information; I can help. Test anxiety plagues nursing students like the flu, especially NCLEX-style questions... oh, all that prioritizing and critical thinking!
In helping students understand their own patterns of thinking and reviewing rationale for testing, I can help. My methods will vary on the needs and learning styles of the student, and together, we can come up with study plans to increase success and decrease anxiety in nursing school!

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 have been teaching nursing and assessing using NCLEX-style question format for the past 6 years. During that time, I have completed several test writing seminars to prepare me for my role as nursing instructor. Additionally, I have been either involved with or directly responsible for the test question writing on the NCLEX-style assessments I have used with students. Furthermore, in all of the nursing programs I have taught full-time, 95-100% of the students passed their NCLEX examinations on their first attempts. Although, I do not consider myself to be an expert in NCLEX test questions, I do believe I am proficient in my understanding and am able to offer students concrete test-taking tips and effective approaches to answering these types of questions.
