Patient and knowledgeable

Akeeka went over questions and we went through it in a systematic way and she was able to tell me where I went wrong and what are my weaknesses. At the end she made me tell her what I learnt from the session gave me assignments.I look forward to our future lessions

Great Nclex tutor

My first lesson was wowww, I can see myself with the RN license already. Akeeka is a very knowledgeable person, she has the art of teaching. All I can say you won't regret, so let her help you with your Nclex preparation.

Natacha, 1 lesson with Akeeka

BEST TUTOR EVER!! IF I CAN, YOU CAN!

After learning that I had failed the NCLEX for the fifth time, I was really at a loss for words and didn’t know where to start considering I had done EVERY test prep under the sky for NCLEX. A couple of days later, I randomly talked with a classmate who went through a similar situation and had just passed the NCLEX from the help of Akeeka and recommended her. Of course, I was excited to meet Akeeka but also sat here like “is this lady really going to help me pass”, I spent so much on nclex reviews and re-registering that I contemplated to even go forth with the tutoring. However, after talking with Akeeka on the first encounter, I knew she was what I needed to be successful. Akeeka is ONE OF A KIND. She didn’t judge me on my number of attempts or make me feel inferior because of my situation or when I didn’t get things right during tutoring. Akeeka consistently had an optimistic attitude and motivated me each session. She evaluates you and gives you an individualized plan that is right for you! She will challenge you yet encourage you at the same time. Akeeka breaks down the material in a way that is easy to grasp (you will have a lot of “ah ha” moments)! She is very knowledgeable and well qualified from all of her experience within nursing. You will feel secure and gain that trust needed from Akeeka’s guidance. Her workload can be overwhelming but it is very doable. You have to stay committed to running this race until the end. I have learned that it starts with YOU and your mindset. You have to be positive and BELIEVE that you can and will pass the NCLEX! Yes, there are going to be times where you are like “why am I doing all of this work” or “didn’t I read that yesterday, why am I doing it again” but you have to remember why you started. You only have to take this test ONE TIME! And I guarantee that Akeeka will prepare you to take this test for the LAST time as long as you stay committed to her course. Her method works!! And it is so worth it! As I continued to work with Akeeka, I saw change in how I was critically thinking, approaching questions, thinking more like a nurse and especially the change in me and my confidence. It only got better with time over the sessions that I completed with her. And as mentioned before, I literally did every prep course yet NO course gave me the tools and strategies that Akeeka shared. This is a vital part of her process and she will share them with you too when she sees you are ready! If you are hesitant due to financial concerns, please know that Akeeka genuinely cares about your success. She worked with me numerous of times and each time told me that me passing is her priority! And she will absolutely work with you if brought to her attention. Akeeka is also very flexible with scheduling! It was amazing to experience and see how much she cared about my success even while still maintaining her own personal life and career outside of tutoring. I truly believe that this is Akeeka’s purpose and passion. She is more than an experienced, knowledgeable tutor but someone who will listen and help you gain back the confidence that you may lack and strengthen your abilities to be successful not only for NCLEX but throughout the remainder of your nursing career! I am thrilled to announce that I am officially a REGISTERED NURSE!! And I now know that that “random” talk with my classmate was all God’s plan and I thank Him for this journey and guiding me to Akeeka! Akeeka, THANK YOU!! Thank you for your compassion, leadership, faith, resilience and believing in me when I didn’t at times. Thank you also for your continuous support and motivation even when I thought about giving up. I am inspired by your dedication and I am truly grateful for you and your passion in wanting to help future nurses succeed. As Maya Angelou once said “be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud” and Akeeka was just that for me and I know she will be for you too!!

Amber, 10 lessons with Akeeka

excellent tutor, patient, encouraging!

I cannot thank this amazing woman enough! I did not pass my first nclex. I went to 265 questions and utilized the FULL amount of time. My anxiety got the best of me. This past Thursday I passed the NCLEX in only 78 questions. I walked in there with more confidence than I could have expected, my nerves were under control and I felt in control and extremely positive, thanks to Akeeka! We had about 4 sessions together and focused on strategies on how to approach the questions and tame my nerves and anxiety. It made a world of a difference. She boosted my confidence tremendously. If I could rate her higher, I absolutely would. Thank you again Akeeka!

Someone who will hold your hand and be your eyes when you cannot see

Akeeka has been a phenomenal NCLEX tutor! There were times when I couldn't see the end of the road and Akeeka was there to constantly motivate me! She had her eyes at the end of the tunnel and I couldn't dare to look at it! I was scared thinking about the outcomes of not passing the Nclex! But Akeeka, gladly showed me that with hard work and determination I would become a Registered Nurse! She does give lots of work but honestly, it is so worth it!! You may not feel like that at that moment but when you see the word PASS on your screen, it will payoff! If there was any moment, I was beginning to fill with doubt she would instantly encourage me to not focus on those thoughts! She had a very busy schedule but was so intentional about each lesson we had. Regardless of how busy she was, she would check in on you and provide with so many resources! I think having a tutor not only guides but believes in you is what gives you much more confidence. I can proudly say that because on October 15, 2018, I became a Registered Nurse by the grace and help of God and Akeeka! Thank you Akeeka for everything! I am so grateful for our encounter and all your words of encouragement and wisdom! God bless you and all your future endeavors! #CHOOSEAKEEKA #CHOOSEAKEEKA !! "

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.

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.
