NCLEX-RN

Suzanne was extremely helpful in reviewing prioritization and delegation concepts within the nursing process. She taught me critical thinking strategies to identify and rationalize the best answer. Very patient and will tailor lessons to your specific needs.

Tutor responded:

Sarah, Thank you for your descriptive positive feedback. Critical thinking is an essential skill for professional nursing and will make you successful. It is a pleasure to help you! Suzanne

Great Teacher!!

Suzanne was very patient. She had helped me understand concepts that I didn’t grasp in nursing school. With her help, I can continue to use the knowledge provided through the rest of my nursing career. I usually have test anxiety, but during my lesson with Suzanne, she had encouraged me to think aloud. By doing so, it helped me answered some of the more so difficult questions. She had guided me to a better method in studying. I have never achieved a score higher than a 700 and I am excited to say, with Suzanne’s help I was able to get a 976 on my HESI Exit! I also received a 943 on my HESI Pharmacology, two days after taking my HESI Exit! Needless to say, I can finally say I am graduating nursing school!! Now I can move forward and study for the NCLEX. I can’t wait for the rest of my lessons with Suzanne.

Thank you, Sari, for your well thought out and well expressed very positive feedback. Your success is my greatest reward and it is my wish that what you learned during our tutoring sessions will help you throughout your nursing career. Congratulations again on your HESI accomplishments, your graduation from nursing school, and I am very happy to help you prepare for the NCLEX-RN. Suzanne

Suzanne greatly helped me learn and understand how to apply critical thinking for my Nclex examination.

Suzanne was patient, kind, and went above and beyond in helping me learn how to apply critical thinking for the nclex. She tailored her lessons to my individual needs and was super accommodating in all aspects. She is thorough, has a vast and precise nursing knowledge. I am so grateful to learned from her guidance. Would have not been able to do as well on my board without her. After failing the Nclex twice... I finally passed in 75 questions.

Nursing NCLEX

Michael, Dallas TX. Upon graduation of December 2018 I took the NCLEX in February 2019 telling myself it’s now or never the earlier you take the better. I did practice questions, 75 questions a day for 5 days a week focusing on reading the questions and taking care of my test taking anxiety. When it was time to test and I received a failure on my first attempt I felt sick. I took a week off studying and told myself you can’t give up and be depressed, there has to be another route to this thing. Logged on to Wyzant and found Suzanne, told her my problem and she said she could help me. I met with her once a week for 2 hrs going over test taking strategies and gaining more confidence for my second attempt of NCLEX passed in April with 75 questions. The lessons Suzanne taught me help take a very difficult exam to the mindset of I got this no worries no anxiety. I recommend Suzanne for any testers of the NCLEX who are struggling, looking for strategies, or just need a boost in preparation for the NCLEX. Thank you Suzanne

Thank you, Michael, for the well thought out and clear expression of your experience with the NCLEX and how lessons with me helped you pass the NCLEX. Your feedback will help other students who need help know that help is available. You have the communication skills, willingness to learn, and attitude, which are the makings of a successful nursing career. Best wishes to you!

Very good at explaining

Today was my first session with her. She is very flexible with the schedule and very good at explaining concept to me in a simplistic way. I will be using her again.

Who really enjoys interpreting ECG strips?

If you’re in nursing school, you know that it is hectic, busy and chaotic in every way. I had issues understanding and interpreting ECG strips. Suzanne was able to explain it to me in a way that made sense. I love how she explains things without all of the extra FLUFF. Simple and to the point. That’s what you’ll get when you have a tutoring session with Suzanne. Our two hour session was worth every second! I have realized that I am retaining so much more by going through my weaknesses with Suzanne. She is seriously the best!!

Tianna, Thank you for describing how effective tutoring with me has been for you, including interpretation of ECG strips. You have my best wishes for your continued success! Suzanne

Suzanne's positive reinforcement kept me going!

I have so much gratitude for Suzanne. I first came to her when I didn't pass my HESI exam which was the test standing in the way of me and graduation from Nursing School. She first helped me pass that with very little time to prepare. She gave me the confidence, taught me many tools to help me learn how to take the test, and provided the utmost knowledge of subject matter. She broke down difficult concepts and showed me how to apply what I already knew. Once I passed that final exam, I knew that I still had to take the NCLEX which frightened me. I reached out to Suzanne again and we came up with a plan to ensure I passed the test the first time I took it. The schedule allowed me to stay on track with my own studying and when we would have our weekly hour sessions I always felt like I got so much out of them. My confidence continued to grow and Suzanne's positive reinforcement kept me going. I ended up passing the NCLEX the first time and I owe it all to Suzanne. I couldn't recommend her more!

Knowledgeable and understanding

I liked the beginning where she set goals for our lessons and got a baseline of where I am at in my knowledge and how we reviewed questions based on my weaknesses.
