I've been a RN for 25 years, and have been involved in clinical nursing education for 15+ years. I have taught in the hospital and at the community college level. I teach dosage calculation, pharmacology, med/surg nursing, pediatric nursing, mental health nursing, nursing fundamentals. I have experience both in person and via distance learning. Nursing is not a job for me (never has been). I absolutely love teaching, and I am known for being a tough but very fair instructor. Do not let the word "tough" scare you....Nursing is a tough and rigorous educational path. I am absolutely committed to student success. If you are having trouble with any particular concept, I will work with you until you understand the material.
Nursing education is comprised of many individual courses, including Anatomy and Physiology, math (dosage calculations), pharmacology, biology, microbiology, language arts, etc. I have 15+ years of successful teaching in these subjects and am known for being an extremely effective teacher.
If you are having difficulty with any of the subjects I've discussed, contact me for help! I know nursing education inside and out and there is no topic that I cannot help you to understand well enough to be able to effectively pass exams while maintaining and growing your nursing knowledge base. I will not give up on you until I am comfortable that you have really learned the material!
I have taught via distance learning for over 10 years, and have coached one-on-one online, utilizing the Wyzant classroom or other modality. I have a unique approach to preparing for exams, either within a nursing program, or sitting for NCLEX. Because I do a majority of my coaching (tutoring) via the internet, I have developed a review program that can be easily adaptable to any student.
I have extensive experience in creating and teaching NCLEX-type exam questions! I know NCLEX very well, and have written exam questions in the same format for many years. I can help you understand how to analyze the multiple-choice questions in order to be successful and I can help you focus down to where you need the most help (this saves you time & money). I have coached literally hundreds of nursing program graduates in NCLEX preparation, and would like to help you as well!
My teaching (and writing) philosophies are strongly connected to the unique needs of the professional adult learner; providing the tools necessary to succeed individually as part of an effective health care delivery team. I am known for being detail-oriented and organized in my work, and enjoy creating new educational materials and modalities involving students in active vs. passive learning. I am a strong advocate for utilizing a mentorship approach for adult learners. I utilize case studies and various electronic modalities to share my knowledge base.
Honest & motivating tutor!
Susan was amazing to work with and just what I needed in my life! I finally passed the NCLEX on my 4th attempt all thanks to Susan. I graduated nursing school on August 30th and tested in September, December and January...all failed attempts in which I got the maximum amount of questions. Failing the NCLEX once, let alone multiple times, takes a lot out of you mentally and I felt completely defeated. At first I was worried that this would be just another round of generic practice quizzes but Susan really did customize her responses and sessions to YOU personally. Susan doesn’t waste your time going over stuff you already know, and stuff you don’t know she really explains in a way you can understand by telling stories and sharing examples. You can take practice quizzes all day long, but it does you no good if you don’t really understand the rationale behind each answer. I really appreciated Susan’s honesty with her responses to me and her flexibility with scheduling. Besides her effective tutoring method & breakdown of exam topics, the part I truly feel is 100% what made a difference for me is Susan’s focus on regaining your self-confidence! I tested for the fourth time on April 18th (almost 8 months after graduation) and I PASSED!Miranda, 3 lessons with Susan

BEST TUTOR; with tons of knowledge and very honest
Words cannot describe how Susan truly helped me. From taking the NCLEX 2 time previous and not being successful, it was very hard for me to look for the right type of help. It is extremely hard getting back up on the horse, so to speak and get motivated to study for the next attempt. Susan gave me that motivation. Just by speaking with her every week, she pushed me to try harder and stay on track. Honestly, I am truly beyond grateful to her. I had more than 10 sessions with her and every time that I spoke with her, I felt empowered and I also felt a better understanding about the material that we had went over. I liked the fact that she puts in little examples of her own to make it easier to understand. If you don’t know something, she will explain in to you in easier words. I was not confident in pharmacology and when we went over that information, I felt more prepared. She is honest with you which is what I needed. I don’t want someone to lie to me when it could hurt my prep for the NCLEX. She tells you what areas you need work in and what areas she thinks your stronger in. In every session, I truly enjoyed speaking with Susan. She is an understandable person as well as VERY KNOWLEGDABLE! I swear I wish I could be as smart as her. When I took the NCLEX for the 3rd time, I got the full 265 with 50 SATA, and let me tell you it was mentally exhausting. but by using Susan’s method, it truly helped me slow down and truly look at the question. I got my results a few days later and let Susan know the good news. I still am beyond forever grateful to her for helping me through this process. It is not easy but if you put in the work you will FOREVER reap the benefits. THANK YOU SUSAN!!!!!! You are so positive and very empowering. Thank you for pushing me forward and onto the next wonderful journey.Kristie , 13 lessons with Susan

The creme de la creme of nursing instructors
I procrastinated posting a review bc I thought that my high regards for this woman would make it harder for me to book her afterwards. I have been fortunate finding good tutors on this site, but she is far beyond just good! She is the "creme de la creme" of nursing tutors. We don't waste ANYTIME! Quick pleasantries, then we get to work! She quickly recognized my learning style and decided that I didn't need a lecture review. She realized that that I understood the content and JUST needed help answering "nursing school" type questions. She provides rationales for questions that are more realistic/understandable than test bank questions are. I am VERY happy with Ms Susan and I guess it's time that I stop being selfish and write a review lol. I am a broke, last semester nursing student and she is the best investment into my nursing education/ upcoming career, that I have made thus far. Thank you MS SusanSonya, 5 lessons with Susan
