Hello, I am Amanda. I am a APRN and have been in nursing for the majority of my adult life. I started out as an STNA at 16 years old and gradually worked my way throughout the nursing chain. I currently am a nursing instructor at the collegiate level. I enjoy tutoring students that are interested in nursing. I have mentored students throughout nursing school from the beginning starting with the TEAS/HESI all the way to the NCLEX. I have tutored in a variety of subjects: anatomy and physiology, biology, study skills, pharmacology, dosage calculations, TEAS/HESI/NLN-PAX, NCLEX prep, ALL nursing courses from fundamentals through medical surgical and mental health. I also assist with evidence based practice research papers and case studies including APA formatting and proofreading.
Each student determines their own study pace and plan for learning. I have learned, as an educator, that each student is unique and what may work well for one student might not work for another. Whichever way you learn best, we will work together on how to utilize this method to your advantage. I use a unique approach to education. I help bring textbooks to life by taking complex ideas and breaking them down in a way that is easy to understand so that a student can apply them to the real world. I believe that learning should be FUN. Thus, I utilize creative memorization techniques to help students learn and retain material.
I believe that education is the foundation for everything in life. With a solid education and a little encouragement... you can achieve ANYTHING!

TEAS- English

I really needed help with the English part of the TEAS and Amanda helped me out so much. I jut had one session with her and he not only have me good tips to look for, but she also gave me some worksheets to do. I would definitely recommend her!

Sara, I'm glad I could help you with the TEAS!

Amazing!

Amanda finds ways to help you individually! I have only had one session so far but very pleased with her tutoring! Definitely will be reaching out for more sessions!

Ashlee, 1 lesson with Amanda
Tutor responded:

Ashlee, I'm more than happy to help with nursing school and NCLEX style questions.

You’re in for a pleasant surprise.

Amanda is the niece of a very well known teacher…Do yourself a favor and find out yourself. 3rd time test taker here and was able to pass! Amanda helped me pass my nclex test by assessing me first. Which I loved. Other tutors I’ve met on here will just go right into their own cookie cutter design of teaching. But everyone is in different stages for this test. She was able to determine areas where I do great at and places where I needed work on. Personally, my issue application of knowledge and technique onto NCLEX style questions. After learning and practicing with her, I was set to take the test. But before I took my Nclex exam, she sat with me through an entire test as I spoke out loud my thought process as I was answering each question. She made some tweaks in my thought process and she was brutally honest with me on whether I was ready to test. And guess what? I passed with 75 questions! I am truly grateful for your help, Amanda, and I cannot thank you enough!

Tutor responded:

Thank you, Chris. I am so happy that I could help with your NCLEX-RN especially since you were already an LPN and that can be challenging. CONGRATULATIONS!

Amazing and helpful

Amanda really helps break down the questions and help better understand a topic. She really made sure that you fully understand the topic before continuing and makes the sessions very personable and fun!!

Thank you, Jasmin. I'm so glad I could help you with the NCLEX.

Knowledgeable and patient

Amanda taught me how to study for the teas. She developed a great study plan to help me prepare for the exam. She is patient. She focus on how you learn before she gets started

Kerian, 1 lesson with Amanda
Tutor responded:

Yes, it is crucial to understand how to study and what type of learner you are before we start test prepping so that we can work best together. THANKS!

TEAS Test

Amanda worked with me on math for the TEAS test. I took the test once and needed improvement on this section. I not only improved my grade and got where I wanted to but I got over 20% higher then the first time I took the test! I can't thank her enough!!! I highly recommend Amanda. Thank you again Amanda!!

Cheryl, 3 lessons with Amanda
Tutor responded:

WOW! 20% increase in your overall TEAS score just by working on Math and test taking strategies. Amazing. Congratulations, Cheryl on LPN-RN bridge program.

TEAS

Amanda help me prepare for my TEAS test for the nursing program after my first session with her I felt so confident she really helps break down what sections to focus on and one of my favorite things was she will give homework to work on and test your knowledge. She’s a great tutor definitely going to keep tutoring with her throughout the nursing program.

Tutor responded:

Angelica, I am so happy I could help not only you but your friends as well get high scores on their TEAS for admission into nursing school. I cannot wait to help you all this fall. THANKS!

Most amazing tutor for TEAS

I have had multiple lessons with Amanda and I can honestly say that she is by far the best TEAS tutor. She is very thorough when it comes to working with you. She also makes sure to answer every question and topic that you have. If you don't understand it the first time, she'll repeat it again until you fully grasp the concept. I felt confident when it came to taking the TEAS because we touched every base that was needed to be covered. This was my final attempt of taking the TEAS and I can proudly say that my score has increased by 8% which is AMAZING. The amount of time I have had with her has significantly changed my grade. I used these scores for my application and I can finally say that I have gotten into 2 of the top schools in my area: Texas Woman's University and University of Texas Medical Branch. Thank you Amanda for guiding me and believing in me. I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for your guidance. Don't hesitate to schedule a lesson with her because she's definitely worth it!

Nancy, I am so very happy for you. Congratulations on your acceptance into nursing school. You will make a wonderful nurse. Nursing school... HERE WE COME!
