About Ruth


Bio

I have been tutoring students since college and teaching undergraduate and grad students for over 30 years. I really enjoy one-on-one tutoring students, as you can make a real connection with an individual student and help them be successful in the goal they are trying to attain. I am the mom of 19 year old twins and I see how some of their friends struggled with fairly basic science classes in high school and college. I am fortunate that my daughters are straight 'A' students so far but they...

I have been tutoring students since college and teaching undergraduate and grad students for over 30 years. I really enjoy one-on-one tutoring students, as you can make a real connection with an individual student and help them be successful in the goal they are trying to attain. I am the mom of 19 year old twins and I see how some of their friends struggled with fairly basic science classes in high school and college. I am fortunate that my daughters are straight 'A' students so far but they have worked at obtaining those grades.

I have stressed to my daughters the importance of having a study plan for each course they have. This consists of more than 'just studying.' I look forward to the challenge of working with students to develop their own successful study plan, especially when many of my adult students are trying to juggle work, school and their family life!

Sometimes I feel a student can get 'swallowed up' in a classroom setting. A student may not grasp a certain basic concept and before you know it the student is struggling just to stay afloat in the class. I once had a medical school professor tell me that 'you are trying to drink the material through a straw but we are delivering it to you be a firehose!' Does that sound about right?? A great tutor can come in and really be the student's 'life-line' - assist them in 'catching up'; provide tips on how to stay current; and finally to excel in their subject matter! I would love to be your lifeline!!

I am both a registered nurse and a podiatrist and I love incorporating my clinical background into the basic sciences such as Anatomy and Physiology. Many times students feel that A&P can be so dry and 'boring.' I try to bring real life scenarios into the context so students see the relevance of learning this material. I also teach RN-NCLEX review classes for a major corporation so I am well versed in nursing curriculum as well as Pharmacology and Advanced Health Assessment. I am one of the few tutors that will work with you to improve/increase your HESI

Pharmacology

I have taught pharmacology at three various universities in their nursing curriculum numerous times. I teach a pharmacology section every time I teach the RN-NCLEX review class to nursing students. I had pharmacology classes in both my undergraduate curriculum as a RN as well as a graduate level pharmacology class in my doctoral studies.

excellent teacher

Signing up for more, I am waiting to take the Hesi 2 in the early part of December, and I think I found my teacher...Ruth was great for our first meeting, and we'll do more together too. She keeps it moving and keeps me focused. What could be better than that?

Ms. Ruth was amazing ! She explained really well how we as people process pain & I left the lesson feeling very confident in the topic. Definitely will be using her again

Best A&P tutor out there

A&P has always been a difficult subject for me so going into the HESI exam I was very afraid of this section. Ruth worked with me on topics that were essential to know for the exam because I only had 4 days to study. She’s so knowledgeable, and very very patient. I’m happy to say I passed my exam and I have Ruth to thank for that!

Patient and Knowledgable

Ruth was great and had an understanding of my learning style. Ruth was very excited to go over the endocrine system with me and I loved how she made me really think and recall information I was already taught and to apply it to the material being taught. She is also very patient and you can tell she has a real love for the material she is teaching.

I have find the help needed!

Ruth is an advanced level nurse. She is an awesome instructor. She is friendly, knowledgeable and helps with explaining material in a way anyone can understand and retain. Thank you Ruth! You have saved my grades.

AMAZING!!!

Ruth is extremely knowledgable, and makes the content user friendly. She can break everything down to a very basic comprehension, and then builds the student back up to the level where they need to be able to articulate for testing purposes. She is very friendly, and genuinely cares for her students' success. I honestly wish my original instructors were of this caliber, these last 2 semesters would have been so much more tolerable.

NCLEX

Ruth was an amazing tutor who really helped me to understand the content. She gave me tons of practice questions that allowed me to use critical thinking skills. She is extremely kind and patient and did a great job at explaining material that was hard to understand. She went through each question with me and explained rationales to each one. She did a great job at preparing me for the NCLEX.
