I am a registered nurse and specialize in helping RN and PN candidates prepare for the NCLEX licensing exam. Tutoring can be done face-to-face or on-line, using guided review of practice questions and other resources. Many of my successful students are non-native speakers of English or came to me with special challenges, such as severe test anxiety, dyslexia or other learning differences. I individualize my approach according to the needs, schedule and budget of each student.

I failed my nclex the first time, and decided to find a tutor to help me my second time around. Linda helped me slow down, think through each question carefully to find out what it is really asking and find the correct answer. After 7 lessons i took my NCLEX the second time and PASSED with 110 questions!! Thank you Linda!
- Angel V. from Eden, AZ
Working with Linda has been such a positive experience that I absolutely needed. She is incredibly talented, extremely patient, and knows how to make a student feel understood and heard. I learned so much from her ever session I had and I would not have passed the NCLEX without her!
- Alicia M. from Alexandria, KY
I failed the NCLEX twice before taking it and passing on my third try. I had multiple tutor sessions with Linda. On our first meeting she was able to recognize my weaknesses. We worked on answering questions and identifying what each question was really asking. We also went over strategies to build my confidence. This was exactly what I needed to pass. If you're looking for a tutor, Linda is the way to go. I can't express how grateful I am to have had Linda as my tutor.

Linda helped me a lot!! I passed my NCLEX with 75 questions on the first try. We worked on breaking the questions down into there simplest forms like the subject or look for modifying words to figure out what the question is really asking. I would start off by answering a set of 3 questions on my own. Then I explained in my own words what the question is asking and why did I choose my particular answer. Sometimes you choose the right answer for the wrong reason. Linda was able to point out my errors in a constructive manner that made sense. She also provided additional resources and recommendations. For example, additional sites and books to practice NCLEX questions, handouts, and recommendations based on the individuals needs. I recommend hiring Linda as your tutor because she is organized, attentive, punctual, and provides feedback. I am grateful for meeting Linda.

I went searching for a tutor after failing my first attempt at the NCLEX. I needed someone who could thoroughly explain the test and how to navigate questions. Linda was the perfect fit for me. I have struggled with standardized tests my whole life and she took the time to break down what the test was looking for and how to pace myself. The first time I studied for the NCLEX on my own I did thousands of practice questions and two practice tests. I had no "plan" on how to prepare myself. Linda had a set study plan with suggestions that can be altered for different people. If you have not passed your NCLEX or are looking for help with test set-up and prep Linda is for you! ~ Lindsey, RN, BSN

Linda is a very kind and compassionate woman who works individually with each of her students to find the best method for preparing for the NCLEX! She is very supportive and has amazing study methods to suggest as well as a plethora of NCLEX style questions of all range to help best prepare the student! When getting a question wrong she works with you on the best way to approach the question so you can get the next question of similar style/context correct. I would definitely recommend her!
- Melanie L. from Raleigh, NC
Linda and I had our first session and she send me a few resources and websites for my own studying. She also has practice questions and encouraged me to be more confident in my knowledge! I am excited to continue my sessions with her and hopefully add RN to my name soon!

As a repeat test taker I know first hand how defeating it can be when you find out you didn?t pass your Nclex. The first time I failed I thought that maybe it was just me not knowing enough material, so I studied harder and tried again. The second time I failed after 265 questions, I knew there was more to this test then just material. That?s when I decided I needed some one to help and I started to search Wyzant. After reading so many positive reviews that Linda had, I decided to give her a chance. Within a few hours, she answered my call for help and was very accommodating in getting started right away. From the first session we had, I felt as though Linda actually cared and was confident that I would succeed despite my own self doubts. From the beginning, Linda was helpful in pointing out my strengths as well as my weaknesses. She gave me suggestions for online resources and was extremely patient with me when we worked on questions. Linda is kind, encouraging and motivational. I actually really looked forward to our weekly sessions. If you're like me and you feel like you have lost all hope in passing the NCLEX, do yourself a favor and trust Linda to get you there. I am happy to say that I took my NCLEX for the very last time and after 75 questions, I?m officially a Registered Nurse! Thank you Linda

Linda made me believe in myself more and more with each lesson that is covered. She is encouraging, motivating, and makes you think outside of the box. I look forward to all my sessions with her!
- Nicole A. from Miami, FL
When I took my nclex the first time I struggled, I did not know how to study or what areas I needed to focus on. I ended up failing and lost all my confidence to test again. I found Linda on Wyzant and decided it would be a good idea to have a tutor. She was able to find my weak points and build back up my confidence to test again. My nclex processing took so long, but in 5 months I learned so much about myself from Linda. She taught me so slow down, really understand the questions and not double guess myself. I tested my second time and passed!!!! I am so thankful for Linda and would highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling to pass this test! THANK YOU!!
- Nina S. from Walnut Creek, CA
Linda is amazing. She guided me though each questions and gave excellent rationales. She's very understanding and she is willing to take the time to break down information until you understand it.
- Miriam M. from Greenbrae, CA
Linda helped me concentrate and break down NCLEX questions. She taught me not to overthink the NCLEX questions. When I used what she taught me, the NCLEX became easier for me when I used my knowledge, she is an amazing tutor and teacher, Thank you Linda.
- Nicole S. from Sewell, NJ
Linda is extremely helpful! She is personable, patient, and non-judgmental. She will talk you through a problem or scenario until you fully understand the answer and rationale. I highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling with NCLEX prep.
- Jeanette S. from Charlotte, NC
Best Tutor I know. She is very knowledgeable and forces you to think until you get it. Love her and I wouldn't be as far as I am now without her. I highly recommend her. She's an expert. ??
- Ruth T. from Fort Lauderdale, FL
I have been so blessed to have linda as a tudor. I started taking lessons with linda while starting my third go at the NClEX. I have never been a good test taker and I have testing anxiety. I had diligently worked so hard on the first two attempts but couldn't make it over the passing line I had taken Hurst, ATI, and the questions with NCSBN and still ahdn't made it. I looked online and found wyzant and specifically Linda. I'm always skeptical using a online program I've never heard of before and didn't know what to expect but after reading all teh reviews like this one I give Linda a shot and I'm so glad I did. The third time I took my NCLEX I passed it in 75 questions where as the first 2 times it had taken me 265 questions and I hadn't passed either time. Linda specializes her teaching based on where you at so it will be different for everyone, but she really knows her stuff. If I could do it all again I was have done this my first test don't miss out on a great and kind teacher! Thanks Linda!
- Dan A. from South Portland, ME
Linda understood me and is figuring out where my weaknesses are for NCLEX questions. She is very easy to talk to and I'm happy she is going to help guide me in better studying skills.
- Sophia M. from Oakland, CA
Linda teaches me in her own way. She suggested what I should have studied earlier and what I should have studied later. She also taught me how to manage my time to start an effective study. She provided me her own material and went over each point which I may miss it or have problem for understanding the questions. Recommend Lisa for ESL students and the students who want to success in passing NCLEX exam.
- Ying Z. from San Francisco, CA
Linda is an AMAZING tutor and makes me feel so much more confident about passing the NCLEX. She reviews various questions and rationales in depth, while teaching me various strategies on how to get to the right answer. I can't wait for many more sessions with Linda!
- Aubree S. from Appleton, WI
We went over different recommended study materials, plan for the next couple weeks, and practice questions. We also went over slowing down the number of tests taken each week to focus on quality of questions, not quantity. She is patient, knowledgeable, and nonjudgmental.
