About Kate

I am a Registered Nurse with a BSN, as well as a BA in English Literature. My experience is centered on tutoring BSN coursework, HESI, and NCLEX prep. In addition, I am available to work with students on test-taking strategy, study skills, resume writing, and interview/job search skills.

Succeeding in nursing involves developing an understanding of the subject matter, as well as an ability to think critically. My goal is to work with students to find the method that best enhances their learning, in order to not only help them test well, but to understand and apply the material to practice.

"Great tutor if you can pin down dates"

Kate replied on 5/5/2014

Thanks for the feedback, Ericka – it’s always welcome so that I can improve the learning experience for my students.

In the unusual event that I am unable to be reached, my students receive advance notice with the opportunity to reschedule lessons and plan for upcoming exams. During this time, my profile also becomes hidden from the website in order to prevent new students from contacting me and to remind current students that I am unavailable.

Additionally, I encourage students to check their junk mail folder for attachments that may be sent in addition to standard lesson reviews, as I am unable to receive from or send to e-mail addresses outside of the WyzAnt system. While not every student/tutor match is the right fit, my objective is always to ensure that my students feel comfortable and have their needs met, and I am happy to make any accommodations possible to help my students achieve and surpass their academic and personal goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Career Development

I have successfully worked with nurses, both new graduates and those with experience, to prepare resumes and cover letters, apply to and follow up on positions, create a portfolio, and prepare for interviews.


I am a Registered Nurse with experience in preparing students to take the NCLEX-RN exam as well as the HESI exit exam. I assess students' learning styles and needs in order to help them focus their studying and test-taking strategy. I assist them with applying critical thinking skills, understanding NCLEX style questions, and preparing for the testing environment.


As a Registered Nurse, my approach to pharmacology is to help students translate textbook knowledge into clinical practice by developing an understanding of medications, drug classifications, and real life application, rather than memorizing facts.


In order to prepare students to take the TEAS and other nursing school entrance exams, I assist them in developing and strengthening skills in subjects that will form the foundation of nursing coursework. In addition, I focus on test-taking strategy and study skills to benefit students not only for this exam, but throughout nursing school.

Excellent! — Kate was very accessible and flexible. She is very knowledgeable in the subject matter and NCLEX test-taking skills. She was very supportive and I felt like I had a personal cheerleader throughout the preparation for the NCLEX. ...
