Hello all; I am a active duty United States Navy Nurse currently stationed at Naval Air Station Patuxent River. I have been in the military since the age of 17 with 22 years of service to our great nation and still currently serving on active duty! I truly enjoy helping others succeed and I have dedicated my life to doing just that. Within my 24 years of service I have tutored and helped many of my sailors with college /study preparation as they strive to advance through the ranks. I have helped my sailors get scholarships for higher education, I spearheaded a NCLEX tutoring program at my Alma Mater Gwynedd-Mercy University. As a result students were able to successfully pass their classes and pass their NCLEX exam during the first attempt. I am truly my most happiest when I am helping others; I have always been dedicated to many causes that is greater than myself. I truly believe that we as human beings are truly blessed with gifts and where others are weak we should reach out and make them strong by helping other achieve their dreams and goals. I have numerous years of expertise with test-prep strategies for the NCLEX exam; College-Selection processes; scholarship-grant writing; to include many other subjects such as Anatomy and Physiology and Biology.

I have 2 undergraduate Degrees- I hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing- Minor 1- Psychology/ Minor 2- Human Biology.
Bachelor of Science in Health Care Services. I also hold a Masters in Business Administration and have been published several times over the last 10 years. My current research publication focused on Cardiac Bio-markers. I am currently enrolled at Purdue University Global finishing out my last two semesters MSN-Nursing Education.

I have assisted numerous students with test preparation at Gwynedd-Mercy University in efforts to prepare them for their NCLEX Exam. I have taught test-preparation classes for the my sailors in the military in efforts to help them prepare for their advancement exam. I am truly a person of great resources and I want to take that information and share it with my future students.

Preparing for my NCLEX

I really enjoy her. She gives alot of work, but its all worth it. I see a difference in myself when doing questions. Every assignment has me closer to my goal. She doesn't just teach you theory, test taking strategies, but motivates you to be a better nurse. I know I will pass the NCLEX this time.

Laticia, 4 lessons with Akeeka

It is such a privilege to get lessons from Akeeka.

I received my nursing degree in 2012 in New York. For the last five years with two torn ACLs, two high risk pregnancies, and giving birth to two very adorable girls I had failed every attempt I took to pass the NCLEX exam during that period. Finally, this summer, with the support of my very optimistic husband , I made up my mind to reach out for help. Boy, was I glad when we found Akeeka. She is absolutely my NCLEX savior. She made me realize not only that I was missing test strategies, some knowledge areas, and help to over come my biggest challenge “test anxiety”. She had a plan for me just from the beginning and I stuck to it. I received so many encouraging points from her every day. I literally lived in the library and finished every single assignment when she asked me to do them. I didn’t see my family for the last month or so. I’m so grateful to my mother for taking care of my little girls. I made the NCLEX my priority. Akeeka helped me with my test anxiety and even showed up on the day of the exam, had breakfast with me and sat with me, pray with me. It showed how dedicated she is to tutoring. She always said that tutoring is not a job, it is a passion for her and I can vouch for that on any day. So, I took the NCLEX again for the VERY LAST time November 14th, 2017. Yes, I am now an RN with a license. I am still in denial and still can’t stop smiling about it. I am so grateful for Akeeka for helping me with the journey. I am truly humbled by this encounter with a person started out as a complete stranger that gave me hope and kept me in the game. I will never forget your line, “Slow is fast. Fast is slow.” as I move into my nursing career. Thank you. Sajini

Cheerful and Helpful

She is able to find a style of learning that helps me get the most out of the tutoring session. She does require a bit of flexibility with the scheduling due to her job, but always give advanced notice.

Naomi, 16 lessons with Akeeka

Knowledgeable, patient, supportive, and understanding.

Today was the first day of my session. We had a lot of technical difficulties because of the bad connection because of low bandwidth of my network. I appreciated Kia patiently working with me through this. We went over NCLEX style questions. I mean really understanding the question, getting the information given and picking the best possible answer. I feel much better about my journey knowing I have Kia beside me. I know she will be patient with me, encourage me, and give me the guidance that I need.

Jemanesh, 7 lessons with Akeeka

Knowledgeable

Akeeka taught me different strategies to approach questions , for Nclex, we will be working on this for the next couple of weeks

I Highly Recommend Akeeka!

The reason for my decision to work with Akeeka as my tutor/coach was two previously unsuccessful attempts to pass the NCLEX examination. She is a very knowledgeable nurse and knows a lot about the NCLEX. She pushed me hard and helped me to pass the NCLEX. She worked with me with patience and helped me dig deep and adhere to a rigorous study routine. She engaged me with helpful reminders, strategies and tips of many kinds. She also helped me to engage with the material, the context, and to stay focused on the presented material given within a specific scenario. She also inspired me to reconnect to my passion, drive and motivation behind becoming a Registered Nurse. Yes, I just passed the NCLEX and am now a REGISTERED NURSE!

Great and Patient!

Ms. Akeeka was great and patience with the first lession. She really gave a good information about what I would need to know to pass this third attempt for nclex. She also was very motivational on me passing since I graduated from college back in 2012 to pass the state Boards. Can't wait for the next session. Thank you for your time.

Brittney, 1 lesson with Akeeka

Awesome My First Day

Akeeka taught me strategy on answering questions, this is the most detrimental to being successful. Very passionate teaching style, takes the time to make sure you understand why this is happening to patient.

Motivational and Passionate Tutor!

It is my privilege and great pleasure to write this review on behalf of Akeeka. I graduated with a Bachelors in Nursing in the Philippines in 2007. I moved to the US a few years ago, and since then I have been studying hard to pass the NCLEX and become an RN here. A few months ago I took the NCLEX for the second time and failed again. I had studied diligently both times, but I just couldn't seem to pass. I felt like I knew the content pretty well, but really struggled with the strategy. I found Akeeka through Wyzant and noticed her great reviews and gave her a call. I am so thankful that I did. I took the NCLEX for the thrid time last week and finally passed. Thanks to Akeeka, I am now an RN! Akeeka is a phenomenal tutor. She is extremely knowledgeable about the in's and out's of the NCLEX. Akeeka set me up on the perfect plan and review that helped me pass with flying colors. Akeeka has great communication skills to explain the content and strategies in a simple and systematic way, which will make any student comfortable and confident about taking the NCLEX. She knew how to gauge my strength's and weaknesses. Akeeka is a strong motivator and always inspired me to do my best. Akeeka displayed a passion for tutoring and a genuine concern for my advancement. In a nutshell, I was very blessed to have found Akeeka. She is one on the best tutors I ever had in my life, and I strongly believe she will be a great asset to anyone who needs help passing the NCLEX.

Noemie, 10 lessons with Akeeka

Awesome Tutor

Made me feel confident and helped me with my critical thinking skills. Pushed me to think more like a nurse and less like me. Already learned so much in such a really short period of time and the study tools she gave me are pretty swell themselves. If you want to know yourself that your really learning and keeping things in mind then this is the awesome tutor you should totally go with. Cant wait for my next session with her!!
