About Pierre-Alain

Hello,

My name is Pierre-Alain. I am coming from the French part of Switzerland. I can express myself in French (my mother tongue) and in English fluently. I can also speak in German and Italian. I have taught artistic drawing and technical drawing to high school students in Switzerland when I was replacing teachers.

As a registered nurse with more than 20 years experience and as a practical nursing teacher with 5 years' experience, I have tutored my students in this school. I have covered all the semesters in this practical nursing school, and I have been able to make students understand the taught subjects by challenging them and making them explain the matter on their own.

French is my mother tongue, and I like the correct application of the rules of this philosophic language. When I worked as a registered nurse in Switzerland, 70% of my colleagues on the unit were French.

I have lectured my students for 5 years about NCLEX questions and the strategy to use to get the right answer. I have prepared tests myself and have regularly challenged my students to decide themselves for an answer and asked them all the time to explain why they chose this answer. My goal is to make them keep the knowledge alive in their brain.

I have my bachelor in art from the Superior School in Visual Arts from Geneva, Switzerland. There I have followed art history classes for several semesters, drawing and painting (Watercolor, Acrylic) classes. This was my first choice as a profession.

As a registered nurse and practical nursing teacher with an artistic orientation, I can help you put light in your dark areas. Of course, my most recent experience is in anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and med/surg nursing.

I am willing to communicate with you so we can see together what is the best way for you to get you comfortable with the knowledge your are looking for.

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.

Anatomy

I had the opportunity to study anatomy and physiology well before I became a nurse. During my bachelor in the Higher School of Visual Arts I chose a course for anatomy drawing with direct study in a medical institution where we could make observation drawing on skinless corpses and various parts of the human body. Besides, I always been captivated by the functions of the human bodies and by the understanding of their purposes.

Drawing

I have a diploma of the Superior Visual Arts School of Geneva with teaching option. In this school, I have studied and practiced drawing 4.5 years.

French

I speak French as a native language. I obtained my High School Diploma in languages in Geneva, Switzerland. I had the opportunity to pass my examination in French, English, German as well as in Italian. As the city of Geneva has a border with France, near the city of Ferney-Voltaire, we had a lot of French immigrants or commuters, and the nursing team in which I worked for 8 years in the University Hospital of Geneva, included 70% of French natives, even from Paris sometimes.

Nursing

I have worked as a nurse in different areas (Med/Surg, Terminal Chronically Ill patient and neurorehabilitation units) for 19 years and have been a teacher for nurses in med/surg, basic nursing I & II and mental health among others, in didactic as well as in clinical classes.
I had the opportunity to work in oversea hospitals and clinics (Switzerland) as well as in Virginia (Hampton Roads). The frame of my teaching method is to help my students reformulate the knowledge him/herself to make sure he/she understands it and can use it.

Nutrition

During my five years as a teacher in Centura College, I have taught the course "Diet & Nutrition" to 3rd semester LPN students. I prepared the Diet & Nutrition test myself and made my students present projects about this subject. When I lectured on Diet & Nutrition, I asked my students to make the connection between diet and physiopathology by challenging with questions on the effect of the food on the body.

Painting

I had the opportunity to teach painting to high school students in Switzerland as an adjunct teacher.
