Hello! I am a PhD/ Nurse Practitioner Student at the University of Rochester and also a Registered Nurse (RN) with a bachelor of sciences degree in nursing and biology (cum laude)! This unique combination of the science and its application may prove helpful to students, especially those in pre nursing programs as well as those currently in a RN program.

I have prior teaching experience in Microbiology, General Biology, General Chemistry, and general nursing.

I have previous coursework experience in Ecology, Microbiology, Advanced Microbiology, Anatomy and Physiology (animal and human), Entomology, Biostatistics, General Physics, General Chemistry, General Biology, Organic Chemistry, Ecology, Genetics, Animal Behavior, Astrophysics, and Aquatic Ecology.

As a recent RN graduate, I understand the challenges of the NCLEX as well as the test format, study strategies, and areas to focus. I passed the exam my first time with only 75 questions under 1 hour with complete confidence in passing- I hope to prepare students to not just pass but pass with confidence leaving the testing center!

*Note- I do charge a no show/ cancellation fee of $35 unless communication about a schedule conflict is made! Please provide up to 15 minutes after a scheduled lesson for instructor or student to join the online classroom.

Science

Anatomy,

Anatomy

Anatomy is essential to the health sciences and my background has a lot of experience and real world lessons with it!
Genetics,

Genetics

Genetics is a principle course in biology- which I hold a BS in. It is also important in the field of healthcare- nursing genetics is a booming field! My PhD focuses on the use of genetics (genes that encode for insulin and insulin growth factors) and how these genes influence the effectiveness of bio-behavioral interventions in dementia.
Microbiology,

Microbiology

As a nurse and biology major, microbiology is a cornerstone. Infections are very prevalent in medicine, and understanding the way bacteria interact within our selfs and our environments is critical.

Very Helpful!

Dillon is a very good at helping me work on my weakest areas and pushed me to work hard! He has provided me with a lot of resources to help me study and a plan of attack.

NCLEX Review

He’s very knowledgeable, patient and knows how to teach and breakdown the material. In the short time with him, he was able to fill in some gaps I had pending.

Great NCLEX tutor

First, he taught me how to approach the NCLEX test and gave me confidence. He showed me how to study and gave me some helpful points. I was stressed because I did not pass the NCLEX test and now I am ready to study hard and pass the test. Dillon is the best tutor. Cathy

Sydney’s review

Dillon has done a really great job helping me to learn concepts by giving me different examples. I feel very comfortable asking questions. He makes it much easier for me to understand by the way he explains things to help me to relate to.

Sydney, 12 lessons with Dillon

Knowledgeable and helpful!!!

Dillon was AMAZING. I’ve never enjoyed tutoring sessions prior to today. He helped me understand issues that I had been dealing with all last semester. I couldn’t seem to figure out how to solve the problem on my own. I know the material but it’s how to answer the question critically I was failing at. THANK YOU. Will be using him again.

Excellent and very knowledgeable teacher

I only have a month left of studying for the NCLEX and he immediately came up with a 30-day review schedule covering all the concepts in nursing and it's really working. Before I found him here on Wyzant I was jumping from concept to concept every day, basically lost and feeling anxious because I feel like I'm missing out on some important topics but now I feel like I'm on track because he's very organized and we're going through everything according to his schedule.

Great Nursing tutor

Dillon has been extremely helpful, and is knowledgeable in every aspect of the nursing field from NCLEX review to care plans. He is very patient and does a great job of explaining his rationale, which really helps the learning process. Thanks so much, Dillon!!

Nclex-RN, very knowledgeable and helpful tutor

Taught me a different way to look at the questions. I thought he was very creative with how to plan to study for the exam. Looking at the case studies really helped me to remember content and answer the question correctly.
