Nurse Educator gives tutoring to current & potential nursing students on any nursing courses (ie. Variations in Health). I currently only give online classes. I use online platforms that help enhance

Methodology

I teach according to the learner's learning style. But I love using "mind mapping" as this works on both sides of the brain, & so learning is achieved! I recommend about 2 hours of tutoring at one time & no more than that. Your brain can only handle so much information. Practice, practice, practice until you succeed! There is no giving up over here :-)

Background

Studied at Douglas College & BCIT (A degree in Arts - Psychology & Kinesiology, a nursing diploma, & a Professional Instructor Education certificate). I am currently a nurse & a health care assistant program educator & coordinator for a local college in Vancouver/Surrey & a University in Langley/Surrey.

Theresa and I have known each other for many years; she is kind, passionate, and believes in people. She is patient, and would do anything to help others. She is fun and cheerful, and always looks for the positive. I highly recommend her for those who struggle and need someone to believe in them; as well for those who are wanting to excel.

To whom this many concern, Theresa was my teacher for the last year. Through in class sessions & virtual learning through zoom. She helped me and my fellow classmates succeed. I never enjoyed teachers in school, but Theresa is amazing. She is a wonderful lady with great children. She always try's to understand each student as their own person so she can help them learn in ways that suites them best. I would not ask for another teacher. I already miss her. :D

Theresa was one of my teachers in my nursing program. She explains the topic in the easiest way possible so that the student can understand. For example, she taught us how to use a type of brainstorming board to help us correlate disease and its associated symptoms. Theresa invests her time and effort to help students succeed because she cares for her students.
