About Jessica

It was cold. November 2000 and I was standing in the middle of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus frightened to make a wrong decision. For that next semester, I would have to decide whether I wanted to go the teaching or nursing route, two completely different pathways. As always, I phoned my mom--she gave me insight I will take with me forever. She easily stated, "Jessica, when you are a nurse, you are teaching all the time." A surreal moment occurred, time stopped, despite the snow flakes falling on my head. She was so right and what I needed to hear at that very moment in my life. I love nursing and I love to educate and tutoring has provided me with the opportunity to do those two things I enjoy doing. I absolutely love tutoring-I enjoy the journey I get to go with others as they are working at getting into nursing school, trying to survive nursing school, and prepare for the NCLEX. My goal is to provide encouragement, self-empowerment, confidence and many 'surreal moments' for others during their journey as they fulfill their dreams.

A little more about me: I understand the frustration and difficulty that may come along with certain classes, test preparation, study skills, etc. I've been there and learned ways to succeed! I love to educate-all ages, especially in the areas of health, anatomy, physiology and of course, nursing and NCLEX preparation. I've been a nurse for eight years, with most of those years being at the U of M Hospital, Fairview. I floated throughout, working in many departments with critical care being my favorite, where I spent my last two years in the hospital setting in.

I spent a year educating health promotion and prevention along with overall wellness, in the community as a case manager. I am now back in the CICU setting caring for the our most vulnerable community members while I tutor and educate new graduate nurses and those in nursing school. I am positive, personable, and caring and try to make learning easier and more interesting for others. I look forward to meeting and/or talking with you. Best of luck!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ADD/ADHD

The stigma of ADD/ADHD is truly bothersome to me as it's so prevalent in my family and others that I know, both youth and adult. ADD/ADHD is very real in both genders and has different forms, meaning the learning styles vary among individuals. I aspire to learn what the best method of learning is for those that I tutor, whether or not ADD/ADHD is present or not. I believe those with ADD/ADHD are blessed with creative minds and ideas and energetic personalities.
I also know the struggles of difficulty concentrating, focusing, being easily distracted, and many times comes the battle with organization of school work, especially as students get older. This can then lead to a feelings of failure and 'not being good enough', which is heartbreaking! Those with ADD/ADHD are just as intelligent as those without and usually need to learn a system that works for them for organization, etc. They also need encouragement and support along the way-I truly enjoy providing that support and encouragement and seeing others flourish and smile when something 'clicks' and they are proud of themselves!

A doctor that I work with once told me, 'you know, we all have a little ADD in us'--so true with all the technology, expectations, etc of our current lives:). I hope to be a source of hope and support for you and your family!

NCLEX

I have taken the updated April 2010 NCLEX-RN Detailed Test Plan course for the Nurse Educator, which is approved by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, the very board that holds rights to the NCLEX-RN test title. I've learned the test plan structure, organization of material and how it's distributed. I've been fortunate to learn the true keys and reasoning about the exam versus what may have been heard via hearsay from others who took the exam. I have been given examples of each type of question and/or format to expect on the exam that I am able to share with NCLEX-RN prospects. In the course, I have also been given keys as to how to write questions related to how NCLEX questions are written to best suit the needs of an individual student. If you are preparing to take the NCLEX and have considered taking a week or day-long review course but are intimidated by the length of the day or if they will review what YOU need to review, individual tutoring is a great alternative! I look forward to hearing from you!

Great tutor! Highly recommended! — I struggled with passing the nclex for a long time. I took countless study courses with Kaplan and hurst review, but still couldn't pass the nclex. I was loss until I found Jessica. She was very patient with me and knew exactly what needed to be done. She developed a day to day study plan that I followed and found very helpful. On my next attempt I pass the nclex. I am now an RN and I can cert ...
