About Stuart

After becoming a Registered Nurse (RN) on a cardiac telemetry unit in 1992, I continued my education attaining my Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Nursing and subsequently my Master's degree as a Nurse Practitioner (NP) in 1999. In addition to receiving numerous awards and honors, all of the above degrees were achieved Magna Cum Laude. One of those honors was the prestigious 'Student Excellence Award of the Northeast Region' which I received upon completion of my NP program at The University of Medicine & Dentistry in New Jersey. Upon becoming an NP, my first position was in the Cardiothoracic Surgical Unit (CT Surgery) at Maimonides Hospital in Brooklyn, N.Y. I was subsequently recruited to the prestigious Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan where I was named the Senior NP in CT Surgery. My responsibilities included, but were not limited to managing the medical and surgical care of 2 floors of 40 or more patients while concomitantly directing the other NP's and Nursing staff of the CT unit as needed. I was also responsible for directing the physicians who had to rotate thru my unit as part of their training.

After coming to Las Vegas in 2003, I initially built up a failing Private Practice which was owned by a local physician. Shortly thereafter I was named the Director of 3 of his affiliated clinics. With a desire to return to acute care in the hospital and given my extensive hospital experience, I was subsequently offered and accepted a position with a large Medical Group as a Hospitalist. (A Hospitalist manages and treats all patients admitted to the hospital regardless of diagnosis). I continued in that position for 6 years till the Chief Medical Officer of my company requested my assistance in filling a vacancy in Private Practice. I continued in that position for some years.

As I also have always considered a transition to teaching, my first position as such in Las Vegas was at Northwest Career College teaching Anatomy and Physiology to aspiring Medical Assistant's. While there, I also became a certified CPR Instructor. I currently continue to teach CPR classes at the college and at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. I also teach CPR privately to dentists and others who seek certification. Teaching has now become my passion as it gives me the ability to assist those who might benefit from the vast amount of knowledge I have attained over the years.

My teaching method is unique as my experience has given me in-depth insight from both sides of the fence. I spent years fulfilling the orders of Doctors, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants until I attained the credentials myself, subsequently writing the orders as a Nurse Practitioner. As a result, my insight allows the student of Nursing to gain a completely different perspective on the application of care for the patients they are charged to help. It also gives the Nursing student an avenue to peer into the future and visualize the transformation they themselves can look forward to by furthering their Nursing education.
In addition, my ability to help the student "understand" medical concepts vs. constant "memorization" allows a deeper conceptualization of difficult topics. The end result is the student's grasp and understanding of the physiology of the interdependent body systems thus leading to a dramatic improvement in grades.

While attaining my Master of Science degree, I found I had the unique ability to write. As one of my readers stated to me, "....it is not just WHAT you write, but the manner in which you write it that I enjoy". I have thus had the privilege of being published in many nursing journals read by RN's, NP's, and PA's. Writing is an art. My ability to write in a cohesive manner engages the reader. This is a critical necessity sought by professors reading your work.

Given my degree accomplishments, knowledge gained by my vast nursing and medical experience, and teaching aptitude, I welcome the opportunity to share with students that which I have learned over the course of more than 20 years. My teaching experience encompasses being a Preceptor for N.Y. University Nurse Practitioner students in the Cardiothoracic Surgical unit in Lenox Hill Hospital; as a College Instructor training Medical Assistant students here in Nevada; as a tutor to Medical Students on topics in Biochemistry and acute care patient management; and as a CPR Instructor.
My teaching manner focuses on helping the student to UNDERSTAND the material vs. memorizing. Understanding a topic remains with the student forever, while memorizing tends to be short-lived.

When you are considering the cost of a private tutor, consider this: you have chosen a career path which is extremely competitive. Schools of Nursing are able to hand-pick which students enter from a huge field of applicants. YOU MADE IT IN! Don't compromise your grades! You can be certain that your grades and GPA most certainly count! Why let a heavily weighted exam send your course grade into a spiral? Let me help you to be successful at your chosen profession! I look forward to helping you achieve!


Given my qualifications in Nursing, Algebraic Math, and Writing, my rates can vary. However I continue to offer an affordable base rate of $45./hr. Take advantage of my knowledge and learn to understand Nursing from an experienced professional! Don't put it off! I look forward to watching you achieve!

Thanks for very much for your kind words! My goal now, after a lifetime of treating patients, is to help new students of Nursing and Medicine gain a better understanding of the issues which affect the patients we are charged to assist. I am happy when YOU are happy and have received, retained, and completely understood the concepts I teach you. This is my pleasure!

"Stuart B. is a fantastic tutor."

"Great tutor!"

- Susan, Menlo Park, CA on 11/3/16
Stuart replied on 11/15/2016

Susan's desire to have a better grasp of cardiac care, interventions, and the interpretations of differing EKG rhythm strips caused her to seek my assistance. We continue to work together with the Cardiac Power Points I have developed. I know that any patient who happens to be cared for by Susan is indeed fortunate!

"Great Tutor"

- Sarah, West Hills, CA on 10/28/16
Stuart replied on 11/15/2016

Not only did Sarah learn the concepts I taught her well, but our time together also included some great moments of laughter. It broke the tension for us both as she was on a very tight schedule to learn an enormous amount of material for one exam, and then a comprehensive final just a week later. She did so well on her exams I knew that I had reached my goal. I measure and value my work by my students' successes! I will always recall my tutoring Sarah with a smile and a laugh.

"Knowledgeable and patient tutor"

Stuart replied on 11/15/2016

Ledroin had reached a road-block in her attempts to write a thesis statement which would subsequently lead her into the body of her work. My guidance gave her the lift she needed which helped her create the work of art which good writing is. I give credit to her determination to not just be a student, but be a GREAT student!

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.

Algebra 1

I have always excelled in math. Not just because I was good at it but also because I enjoy it. I find math to be challenging as well as interesting.
Algebra 1 is necessary to move forward in high school as well as college.
Once you capture the understanding of Algebra 1, much of the following math courses become easier to tackle.
I can help you to understand the math required of you.

Elementary Math

I am adept at Algebra 1 and enjoy the challenge the problems provide. I gained my experience tutoring with my own son while he attended middle school which earned him good grades in math.

Grammar

I have a Master of Science degree, however I have been published several times in medical journals over the years. Writing comes easy to me and I am extremely critical of incorrect grammar. I do believe that the utilization of correct grammar is very important when trying to get ones' message across to readers. I have written many things of late regarding our current political candidates and have received numerous compliments from my readers, noting that "....it is not what you said, but how you said it that counts."

NCLEX

I have earned numerous degrees, beginning with an Associate of Science degree in Nursing. I subsequently became a Registered Nurse working on a cardiac telemetry unit. I continued my education thereafter, receiving my Bachelor's degree and then my Master's degree. I also attained, concomitant with these degrees, many honors such as the Student Excellence Award of the Northeast Region. (Only one student receives this out of the entire student body). In addition I always graduated Magna Cum Laude; worked as Senior NP in CT surgery; as a Hospitalist in Nevada and subsequently worked in Private Practice. My knowledge of medicine and Nursing is without compromise. I truly enjoy giving back some of the vast amount of knowledge I have attained over the years to those desirous of expanding their knowledge base.

Nursing

I began as a cardiac nurse on a telemetry unit in 1992 while continuing on for my Bachelor's and then my Master's degrees. I became Senior Nurse Practitioner in Cardiothoracic Surgery in New York till relocating to Nevada. Since then, I have worked for years as a Hospitalist and in Private Practice. I have been published multiple times in medical journals. I now help D.O. students in a local Medical School when they require it, I am a CPR Instructor, and I look forward to continue to give back some of the vast experience I have accumulated.

Prealgebra

I am adept at Algebra 1 which has helped me to attain my Master of Science degree as a Nurse Practitioner. I graduated both undergraduate school and graduate school Magna Cum Laude.
I can help make your math classes more understandable thus helping you to manage the other courses you face in school a bit easier.

Writing

As I have noted in my profile, I have a Master of Science degree. Throughout the years I have written articles on topic for Nursing journals and Physician Assistant journals. They were all subsequently published. Writing is a skill that one either has a capacity for or one that can be learned. I have found that I have a great capacity to write and continuously receive compliments on various subject matters. Of late, my subject matter has been comprised of our current political process and for which I have been benefit of many compliments. It has been noted to me in paraphrase, that it is not necessarily what I say but how I say it.

He wants you, to want yourself to be better. Working with Stuart is a worthwhile experience. It began over twelve hours before my first session with him. It began with a motivational pep talk, and he stated the goals for the session even before seeing my notes. I have understood, not memorized, the material. He is extremely knowledgeable, and is a down to earth mentor (especially with being a ma
