Nursing

Nursing programs are now more rigorous, and they are difficult for students to master without a tutor. I tutor students who are in Nursing school, or who are applying to Nursing schools. Some students need help with exams, and some need help with required papers. I can help you pass your courses and score higher on your exams. My students do very well.


MCAT

I love tutoring for CARS. Most students have concentrated on science courses, and may lack experience analyzing writing in other fields. You may need extra help to achieve optimum scores on CARS. I have honed a specific method for CARS, so you are able to raise your practice scores. I first use a diagnostic approach, to discover exactly why you are not doing as well as you would like to. I use a specific approach to prepare for the "passages" portion, modified for each student, with several techniques to improve vocabulary. Practice scores improve in a short time. My students do very well after tutoring. I would love to help you, too!


NCLEX

My students PASS NCLEX. In 7 years of tutoring NCLEX, I have an almost 100% pass rate. I have specific techniques to help students pass the NCLEX. Students tutor with me who are taking it for the first time, and also students who have taken it previously and not passed. I developed a certain approach for the NCLEX, a strategy with the questions and answers, that helps students pass. It is not like any of the NCLEX internet courses. You worked hard to finish Nursing School. You deserve to know the NURSING CONTENT and STRATEGIES to pass the NCLEX. My students pass. The right strategy works!


Career Development

These are the ways in which I help with career development: 1. Determine what the student's background is to date and what vision he/she has for the future; 2. Determine if professional testing is indicated in such areas as abilities or interests; 3. Once a clear vision of the future emerges, along with results of any tests if they are indicated, then help the student develop a series of goals; 4. Determine with the student what are the priorities within this set of goals; 5.Determine what steps to take and break these down into measurable, obtainable actions along with a calendar listing the expected date of completion of each goal. AN ACTION PLAN is developed together with the student, based on the student's goals and needs. Here are some examples of a student's Action Plan: ACTION PLAN FOR MOVING INTO A NEW CAREER: 1. WEEK ONE: I will arrange for a professionally-administered test by a psychologigist, in the area I am interested in, to determine if this would be a good fit for me. I will also arrange to meet with three people in this field, to determine their satisfaction with this career and any advice they will give me. 2. WEEK TWO: I will obtain applications from five colleges or universities offering the degree I will need. Look into availability of student loans for these programs. Begin the application process. 3. WEEK THREE: Register for any tests needed for the admissions process such as the GRE, and arrange for tutoring if needed; 4. WEEK FOUR: Complete admissions applications including essays and submit them; 5. WEEK FIVE: Develop a plan for acquiring the knowledge and experience which will help me make the transition into the new field, including reading inspiring accounts of people who have made a successful career transition. An example of a successful career change is a young woman who was working as an elementary school teacher, but this did not satisfy her creative side. She took a career-interest test and discovered that she would be a perfect fit for a career as an art therapist. She had never heard of an art therapist! She returned to school to obtain additional education and certification and developed a wonderful practice as an art therapist.


College Counseling

I have successfully helped students to write excellent college entrance essays. As an experienced MSW counselor, I help them to see their own unique strengths and life experiences to add to the essay, so their own abilities will shine. Each person has special qualities which can be emphasized, so that the essay does not sound like everyone else. I use a four-step process: 1. Reviewing with them their existing resume and Personal Statement; 2. Using a mutual process in which we draft an essay to highlight the student's unique qualities that would add to the college student body, then the student writes the final copy; 3. Reviewing and proof-reading the final essay; 4. Making any other necessary suggestions about who to ask for references and which schools to apply to. I can follow the student through to a successful admission.


TEAS

You can easily learn the important concepts in the TEAS exam. My techniques for quickly mastering Reading Comprehension and Math will raise your score by an amazing amount. My students are very successful on the TEAS. I use the book KAPLAN ATI TEAS: Strategies, Practice, and Review. Please take the Diagnostic Tests in the front before our first session. this will save you time and money. For you to make your very best score, I recommend 1-2 sessions on English and Language, 2 sessions on Reading, and 2 sessions on Math. Most students are already doing well in Science, but if you need Science help we can do that also. I use a multi-sensory approach which I will explain in the first session.
