My passion for tutoring comes from the hundreds of hours I have spent searching for the most effective method to learn new material while retaining old one. Not surprising, the most important skill I have learned through my constant search is flexibility and the willingness to adopt new skills as part of the process. These skills helped me successfully earned a bachelor?s degree in science from the University of California, Davis. Furthermore, these skills helped me improve my studying skills...
I am in my first semester of Nursing school and had failed my first two exams because I had difficulty answering NCLEX style Questions. After my first session with Joaquin, he explained the process of elimination and how to recognize what the question is asking and then picking the best answer. He gave clear rationals and showed me how to apply my knowledge to best answer the questions especially with the select all that apply questions. With my new test-taking abilities I was able to pass my third exam with a high B and I passed my final and the class. I was so relieved and overjoyed if you are struggling in your nursing courses I highly recommend Joaquin because I thought my situation was a lost cause until I received his insight and logic.

I'm in an accelerated nursing program, simultaneously completing my BSN and RN in three years and each class is 8 weeks long. The point being, I have little time between exams to master the concepts being taught in lecture and even less time to spend looking for a tutor. I've used "wyzant" for two subjects, Joaquin responded immediately via messaging and was flexible in working his schedule around what I needed - which was early Saturday morning tutoring. Not only did he accommodate the day and time I needed, he also traveled to a location I selected, my campus. Joaquin was extremely flexible which in turn made me very comfortable. I believe the session itself was imperative for me passing my upcoming exam. At one point Joaquin lightly wrapped a cell phone charger around his forearm, draw a circle on himself in order to better explain the organization of the thin (actin) filament, troponin, and tropomyosin. I feel completely confident for Monday. Did I mention Joaquin is studying for his medical board exam, IN FOUR DAYS!? How he found time for me when he has such a huge personal event coming up, screams professionalism and efficient time management. Highly recommend Joaquin.

Joaquin was fantastic in helping my son study for his anatomy final. He was incredibly knowledgeable and has a teaching style that (according to my son) makes the subject interesting and memorable. We feel so fortunate to have found him.
