My child (7 years old) had her lessons. Her first language is not English, but she could enjoy Beatrice's lessons very much. The methods of her lesson were interesting for me, too. Beatrice is quite patient and she has flexibility in her lessons.

Megan is truly the best in all regards. I could not have found or asked for a better tutor in light of my very difficult personal family circumstances at the time. I came to Megan after my NCLEX, failing at 75 questions, discouraged and frustrated with my lack of success with standardized tests such as Hesi and now NCLEX. First and foremost, she knows her stuff--the MedSurg & nursing clinical content and how the NCLEX testmakers think. Initially I believed that I needed a better grasp of the content, but very quickly I realized that test-taking strategies were critical. Having used KAPLAN and Hurst, I started using the Saunders NCLEX-RN review book, which Megan recommended. That was her first effective strategy--using Saunders. I discovered also very quickly that Saunders was a comprehensive review, much more systematic, better organized in fundamentals and MedSurg than either Kaplan or Hurst, with excellent practice questions and rationales for every chapter. Our sessions were super productive because Megan, as a good nurse did, assessed and "diagnosed" my strengths and weaknesses! She also knows what NCLEX emphasizes and thatâ€™s really important when it comes to prioritizing on what to focus on and committing to memory. Students have to remember that NCLEX is just an exam, that they really want you to have a core knowledge and not necessarily a lot of depth on patho and pharm, and also that the questions and choices are very clever and tricky. If you are willing to work on the basics---lab values, safety first, positioning, etc., and practice the questions the way she instructs, then you should pass NCLEX with her tutelage. As a person, Megan is an absolutely wonderful. I could go on and on with her with how truly caring and understanding she is and that money is not her motivation. She epitomizes in every best sense the nursing profession. I allowed myself about three months to study because I truly wanted to pass this on the 2nd try. As the exam date approached we met at least once a week and held a mini-marathon cramming, review session of Peds & OB, which was a blast! So excited and pleased to say that I passed my NCLEX re-take with 78 questions!!! It felt ridiculously tough, harder than my 1st one, and felt like I bombed it, but I didn't. I had strong personal motivation to study and pass, Megan was also incredibly supportive with my review pace/progress, encouraging, had complete confidence, which was not superficial but based on her experience as a tutor in knowing whether I was ready. I was so, so thrilled to show her my paper license, and to be one of her success stories. You will not regret working with her--she is exactly what you need!

My 9th grader had no prior knowledge of Java before we started tutoring with Mr. Venkata. But with 3 sessions with Mr. Venkata, my son was able to get a B+ in his accelerated com.Si test. Mr. Venkata is a very patient and thorough teacher. He has a way of constantly reinforcing the basics while teaching. He has a very friendly attitude and encouraging way of teaching. Over and above, he is extremely prompt in responding and therefore very easy to reach.
