About Maureen


Bio

I have been a tutor with WyzAnt for 5 years, having begun in 2008. As a tutor I can be of most benefit to students entering the fields of health care who need help with medical language, introductory anatomy & physiology, study skills, and nursing basics.

From 2002 to 2007, I taught a prerequisite 6 week, 6 course CORE Program at a local college for students entering into health care science programs. The 6 week course included: introductory anatomy and physiology, medical terminology,...

I have been a tutor with WyzAnt for 5 years, having begun in 2008. As a tutor I can be of most benefit to students entering the fields of health care who need help with medical language, introductory anatomy & physiology, study skills, and nursing basics.

From 2002 to 2007, I taught a prerequisite 6 week, 6 course CORE Program at a local college for students entering into health care science programs. The 6 week course included: introductory anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, career development, basic computer and math skills as well as first aid. I also served as the campus tutor for anatomy and physiology and medical language.

As a New York State licensed RN, my background has included clinical and administrative nursing for 30 years specializing in acute care working in teaching hospitals in New York, California, Washington, D.C. and most hospitals here in the Seattle area.

I have always been highly regarded by my peers, both as a professional and a human being and my student's have loved me, "I learned more from Maureen than my other college professors", "Maureen is tough but in a good way and she has a great sense of humor", "Maureen really cares about her students and wants them to be successful".

My students have improved their grade point averages as well as having advanced their knowledge of materials being covered and I've also tried to impart what it means to be a 'professional'.

Proofreading

Proofreading

Nurses are required to write detailed, accurate documentation which may be subpoenaed. This documentation is read by other health care professionals: other nurses, physicians, social workers. Documentation had to be detailed, concise and accurate. As a health care instructor I created outlines, lesson plans, and instructions which had to be well organized and easy to follow. In addition to being an RN I am a published writer. Before any articles and manuscripts are submitted I have to be sure that there are no errors in grammar, spelling, continuity of thought, or sentence structure. If I make mistakes I don't get published.

Anatomy

I am an RN who has been practicing in both a clinical and administrative setting for 30 years. My area of expertise is med-surg acute care in multiple disciplines including the following systems:cardiovascular,respiratory, digestive, orthopedic, neuro, oncology, Ob-Gyn, E.R.etc. As a practitioner in many disciplines, I had to have in depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology. For the past 5 years I have been an instructor at a private school for students entering the health care field. Mine was an introductory course which included: anatomy/physiology and medical language. Students were required to pass my course before continuing in their health care fields. I created A&P outlines based on course texts and curriculum as well as power point presentations. My students were very successful, saying I was the instructor they learned the most from.

Really nice tutor, patient and skilled

Maureen assisted my wife for her USMLE clinical skill training and also for her English communication skill improvement. Maureen was patient during all the sessions, and provided practices designed for my wife. My wife learned a lot from her and passed the exam. Maureen is also a nice and easy going person. Before and after the sessions, she always helped pick up and drop off my wife to the bus stop. Thank you so much.

Dependable and understanding

To whom this may concern; My sessions with Maureen were very helpful in that she understood I had not been to school in 30 years. She guided me to study and manage my time throughout the course as it is very rigorous. She offered resources on line as well as sharing her own to help me better understand the process. She is generous of her time as she offered to review powerpoint lecture's from my instructor. She is very dependable and professional. I am very thankful that my first meeting with a tutor had been Maureen as I feel I am able to connect with her style.
