Bio

Please, read my profile in its entirety for more information, policies and availability.

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!

ABG

Amanda is a WIZ at teaching ABGs. As I told her- sometimes a principle doesn’t stick after hearing it for the first 29 times, but she made it so much easier the 30th time. She is patient, very knowledgeable, and wants nothing more than for you to succeed. She’s the best, hands down!

Thanks, Danae!

The PERFECT match for YOU!

I passed my TEAS the FIRST time with help from Amanda. She keeps you focused on what you need to know and study and keeps you engaged during the lesson. She is patient and goes at YOUR pace. She repeats whatever you're lacking in and finds ways to word things so they make sense to you. I am so happy I found her and we were able to work together! Truly a GEM

Thanks, Cassie and Charles!

Knowledgeable and flexible NCLEX tutor!

Amanda is helping me prep for NCLEX-RN. I have failed several times and she's helped me figure out why and what I need to focus on. She's funny, helpful and most importantly knowledgeable and encouraging. I've had so much anxiety about this and even though we're not done yet with tutoring, I'm already more confident and understand better what is being asked in the questions.

Teas Prep Exam

Ms, Amanda is calm and welcoming. She is knowledgeable and well versed in her chosen field. She is very detailed and encouraged student participation in the session. I went into this tutoring session with the fear of unknown and not knowing what to expect but she is able to put my mind at ease . At the end of my 2 hr session, I came out with more knowledge and understanding than a whole week of studying on my own.
