About Me

Greetings,

Thank you for your interest in my tutoring services. My training in tutoring and mentoring students has been through experience in over 8 years. I have helped students through various subjects for college preparation and overcoming academic standstills in their middle school and high school curriculum. Currently, I mentor and address concerns of students preparing for the SAT essay portion and ACT exam along with everyday subject matter in their current courses.

Some subjects that I have worked with students in include Nursing, Spanish, SAT Essay Writing, Nutrition, Pharmacology, Math, English, and Science. Lesson plans are built individually and around students academic ability and cater to the demand of their current teachers. Homework help is available along with the option to be taught new skills and advance current knowledge.

My specialty and passion is nursing. I tutor students in the City University of New York system which includes allied health and nursing. Students have been able to make leaps and bounds in understanding concepts and learning how to critically think through any situation no matter how challenging or intense. Preparation for fundamentals of nursing and medical-surgical topics such as Fluid Balance, Acid-Base, Nursing Process, Vital Signs, Cardiac, Respiratory, and Neuro are some of the major content areas that I specialize in.

Other preparation and skills set can be learned in regards to reading EKGs and understanding the basics along with Phlebotomy skills and other practical nursing tasks.

As a Registered Nurse, I also help students prepare for the NCLEX exam and learn critical thinking skills and comprehend subject matter and pharmacology. The nursing process and applying it can be challenging, but guaranteed after one session you will see how much easier and assure of your decisions will be going forward.

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have.

Best regards,

Elizabeth D, RN

About Me

C.'s Philosophy

My vision is not just to inspire those who love cooking to become great cooks, but also to inspire those who dislike cooking to discover a new sense of enjoyment. I’m specifically referring to those of you who think cooking is impossible and you just weren’t genetically born to cook. Does that sound like you?

"You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

I am here to change all that – to inspire you to understand that most people struggle with cooking not because they can’t cook, but because they don’t like to and don’t want to. We can become better cooks and develop a stronger passion for cooking simply by becoming better with that skill.

I believe people who have negative energy produce negative results. When you say you are a bad cook or when you tell others you are a bad cook, you are only creating more of a bad cook in you. We will change all that.

Energy Flows Where Attention Goes
