My name is Patti, and I have been a registered nurse for 18 years. Previously I had been employed as an accountant by the state of NJ. I have been working as a nursing instructor for the last six years, teaching anatomy & physiology, pharmacology (including medication math), life span, medical surgical, professional development and all levels of clinicals. As a part of my duties I tutor all these subjects.
My nursing background was in cardiac nursing and six years as a chief nursing officer in three hospitals. I hold a master's in nursing with a focus on education and currently I am enrolled in a doctorate of education program. I specialize in assisting students to achieve their highest level of potential learning and focus on learning style, test taking note taking, motivation and professionalism.
I look forward to working with you as you achieve your goal of becoming a nurse or as a high school student needing some help in sciences. Hello everyone,

I worked with Patti for about two months and I could not be happier with all of the help, guidance, and confidence she's given me. I had taken the NCLEX several times and just could not figure out what the problem was. Patti worked with me through my weaknesses and guided me on how to reduce my test taking anxiety. I successfully passed my exam after tutoring with her and I cannot thank her enough!! I highly recommended Patti for anyone looking for an excellent tutor. Thank you!!
Went over prioritizing and certain subjects I am having trouble with. She really cares about her students success !
Very helpful and I recommend her help with nursing studies. Replies quickly and easy to schedule lessons with. Helped me see what I should be studying.
"Thank you. Those two words do not begin to express just how much I truly appreciate all your help. After 30 years, I am finally fulfilling my dream of completing my education. It is difficult. Without the help and support of Smarthinking, I most likely would have given up. I have learned a great deal because of your knowledge, patience and caring.” This was a very helpful experience. I am so thrilled to know that if I ever need help it is just a click away. I was able to grasp many blurry subjects to me and the tutor cleared them up for me. Thanks for everything!!!
Patti is an amazing tutor. From the first tutoring session, Patti makes you feel very comfortable and it is easy to be honest with her. Throughout my tutoring sessions, Patti has truly helped boost my confidence in my test taking abilities and in my nursing abilities. Patti also has many resources such as, pharmacology books, med-surg books, EKG strips, flash cards, and many many NCLEX style questions to prepare you for the NCLEX. She keeps me busy and it challenges me to improve in my skills each week. Though I am still waiting to take my NCLEX, I have definitely seen an improvement since my first tutoring session. I very much enjoy my tutoring sessions with her and I'm thankful for her support.
Patti is teaching me critical thinking skills when answering NCLEX style questions. She goes above and beyond to help me understand concepts. I'm glad to have her on my team. I've met with her a few times and would recommend her to be your tutor.
Patti was simply amazing! I met with her four times, just about 2 hours every time and really nailed the critical thinking aspect of the NCLEX. Patti was able to explain things in simpler terms and provided helpful hints when it came to studying for my boards. She gave me the confidence that I was lacking and was a great supporter! Patti answered every question asked and always went the further step to provide more information to make sure I completely understood! She has a wonderful personality, and 100% recommend to anyone needing extra help studying for the nursing boards!! Thanks again Patti for all the help you provided me and the confidence I needed to pass!! :)
Prepared me in test taking strategies to improve accuracy and success and strategies to recall medications and effects more efficiently.
Patti explained and broke down in details about diabetes. I learned more in an hour than 12 hours sitting in lecture.
Patti's organizational & study skills are unique but logical. Simple to follow cues are right on target. She helped my son see that studying doesn't have to be overwhelming. Easy manner, great with teens!!
Originally, Patti was my tutor for Human Anatomy & Physiology. She was able to quickly switch gears and help me with Medical terminology and still bring in topics from A&P.
Patti made me understand everything that I learned in nursing school in a way that made sense to me. After 8 one hour sessions with her I passed my NCLEX-RN. I felt like I learned more from her from an hour each week than I did in lecture. She is so smart, has been a nurse with tons of experience, and is a nursing instructor. She is patient but stern with homework and then reviews any questions. She explains processes and body systems and how they all relate to each other in a way that's easy to understand. I am so grateful for her and couldn't be happier that I picked her for a tutor.
I had never used a tutor before I met Patti. I was in Nursing 3 when we met and she completely changed the way I studied and took exams, for the better. I have done better on every single exam and highly recommend her for anyone who is having trouble or needs a little guidance with test taking skills!
She will help you focus and "think" like a nurse. She is very patient and encouraging! She is what a nurse is suppose to be and her helping aids from med calc. to med. surg. Will encourage you to want to learn more than what you thought you could. I recommend her "highly."
Patti is a very patient and clear tutor. She gives you the time you need to fully understand the material. She really helped me out with my nursing courses!
I was a little hesitant reaching out to someone for tutoring because I thought I always had what it took to achieve everything in my school studies. Patti was my first tutor in my academic career and I am so glad I chose her. It was only a short time we met and right from the beginning, she knew what I was doing wrong. We worked on my troubles for a few weeks. I decided to take 1 exam, to try out the different techniques she has passed on to me to see if it works. To my surprise, I passed the exam with the minimum amount of questions! I climbed one mountain but still have one more. I wouldn't of passed this exam if it wasn't for Patti and her amazing knowledge and instinct in finding what was wrong. I will definitely use Patti in the near future to pass my other exam.
I am so thankful for the time we spent together.
Patti was very knowledgable and helpful, she really prepared me for my upcoming exam! I recommend her for anyone who is seeking help in any area of nursing!
I'm a nursing student and she helped me with Renal System. The lessons were very helpful and she is a great tutor.
I had the opportunity to have a tutoring session with Patti. She is very knowledgeable about the topics covered during the session. Afterwards when re-reading over the material I remembered her descriptions of the items and it made the connection process easier. I hope to do well this semester with Patti's help.
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.
