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 over 25 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 25 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 happy when I am helping others; I am 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 3 degrees in Nursing - I hold a Master of Science in Nursing Education and Bachelor of Science in Nursing- Minor 1- Psychology/ Minor 2- Human Biology and a Associate of Science in Nursing.
I also hold a Bachelor of Science in Health Care Services and 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 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 w

Excellent NCLEX Tutor

Akeeka D. is exceptionally well diverse with NCLEX knowledge. Despite this being my first session, I feel more confident. She catered to my individual needs and formulated a plan based on my needs.

Nicole, 1 lesson with Akeeka

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Akeeka was an amazing tutor she taught me so much and I am so grateful to her. She helped me finally PASS the NCLEX. :) She is very attentive with each student she has and really helps you identify and overcome your weak areas in order to pass your test. I highly recommend her as a tutor.

Samantha, 7 lessons with Akeeka

Knowledgable Tutor

I sought assistance from Wyzant after I had failed my first NCLEX exam (265 questions) - my confidence was gone and I doubted my ability to pass. I had read reviews on Akeeka and everyone spoke VERY highly of her. After 3 sessions with her, I couldn't agree more with what everyone else says. For me, I needed structure and focus on what to study. I felt very overwhelmed and Akeeka gave me guidance and the structure that I needed. I was lucky that I didn't have to work and could dedicate everyday for 7 straight weeks to study because I needed it. As Akeeka said, it's more than just passing a test, we need all of that information to be a better nurse. Despite the weeks of studying, I was still REALLY nervous going into test day. BUT I took a few days off before the test, rested and come test day, the questions appeared to be very easy. I passed after question 85 and felt like I hardly had any select all that apply. I couldn't have done it without Akeeka. She is very knowledgeable and a dedicated teacher. HIGHLY recommend her.

Great NCLEX tutor

Before I met Akeeka, I had failed the NCLEX three times; I was really devastated and couldn’t understand why this kept happening to me. I did Kaplan twice, UWorld twice, NCSBN, Lacharity and had a different tutor who also couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t passing. Then I randomly came across Akeeka’s profile page read the reviews and though about getting in touch with her. I already spent so much on nclex reviews and re-registering that I was hesitant but after my first session with her, she already had me believing I was gonna pass the fourth time! She is very knowledgeable and her system really works. It is a lot of work and I was working full time, but I promise you if you give it your all it works! During that time I did have a lot of moment of “can I really go through this again” or “what if I don’t pass this time” and when I would study and start getting frustrated or even discouraged I would go to Akeeka’s page and read all the reviews form others who she has helped with similar stories as mine and it would reassure me! So at times I would say, “I may not believe in myself right now but I believe that Akeeka’s going to get me through this!” Akeeka showed me that my mindset is everything and even had me practicing positive self-talk, which at first to me sounded so silly but it really is everything!! You have to believe you can do it and you will!! This was the first time I went into the NCLEX thinking “ I AM GOING TO PASS” and guess what, I DID!!! All the other times I always went in with a negative mindset but with hard work, Akeeka and a good mindset anything is possible! If I can do it, you cant do it! I know you have heard this a million times, but its true! Akeeka will help you on the path to become an RN, she will be straightforward with you and help you not only to pass the NCLEX but also become a more knowledgeable RN!

Great Nclex tutor

Akeeka is a great tutor. She’s knowledgeable, organized and patient, she's great. Anyone who needs a tutor for nclex, I would recommend Akeeka, she boosts your confidence by giving you tips on how to answer the correct answers on the exam.

Ariane, 3 lessons with Akeeka

Akeeka is a great NCLEX Tutor

First I must say if I could give Akeeka ten stars instead of five I would. It is very important that you do exactly what she tells you to do, put in the work and believe in yourself. Akeeka helped me to strengthen my knowledge, critical thinking and strategy. She not only provides you with a wealth of knowledge, she will also motivate you, she took the time out to check in to see how I was doing with the assignments she gave for the week, she even had one of her past students speak to me to encourage me to not give up and keep fighting. Akeeka is very thorough and she will give you alot of assignments to complete but please don't be discouraged or feel like it's too much because in the end it's going to be worth it. It's almost like you're going to war, you don't want to go to war with just one weapon, you want to be prepared with multiple weapons, so that no matter what, you can be victorious, and that's what she did, she prepared me thoroughly so that when I sat down in front of that computer there was no way I could have failed. Even when we were having our session and doing questions she showed me numerous tips and strategy first, then allowed me to break down and answer the question exactly like how I would on exam day and then if I got it wrong she would go back and show me why I got it wrong and highlighted any strategy that I missed, anything that she realized I struggled with during a session she would tell me to research it. As for questions she gave instructions to do a whole lot of questions to get me prepared for any amount of question that I would get on exam day, and any test that I didn't score as high as I should, she would encourage me to go and do the test over and make sure I understood the rationals. Before I found Akeeka, I felt lost and hopeless, and she was like a light house guiding me through. The morning of my exam she called me to check on me and gave me words of encouragement and even after my exam she called me to see if I was ok. etc. and that was so thoughtful of her. Anyone reading this, just identify what would prevent you from not passing, figure out how you can eliminate or reduce it and figure out what usually motivates you because you have to believe in yourself, and AKEEKA WON'T LET YOU DOWN, SHE WILL PUSH YOU AND MOTIVATE YOU TO THE END. SHE WILL GUIDE YOU LIKE NO OTHER. Thanks to Akeeka I am officially an RN 😊😊😊😊😊, blessings.

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

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!
