"Tutoring with Ilene was truly informing and beneficial. She helped me with my nutrition assignment that included calculations and writing an ADIME note. Ilene helped me through the assignment and get through areas I found difficult. She explains things thoroughly and concisely that really helped me. She even goes above and beyond to include extra information and details that can be helpful. Her fun and vivacious personality also made the tutoring session enjoyable. I will definately work with her again in the future and would recommend her to anybody else interested in using her services." Sarah Greene, Student at Cuny Lehman



"Ilene was so helpful tutoring me for the RD exam! She was quick to respond and dedicated to helping me pass! She worked with me on test taking strategies, reducing my anxiety surrounding test taking, and answered my questions on complex clinical concepts. She was able to use her yoga background to help me with some breathing techniques that truly saved me during the exam when I faced complicated questions. With Ilene's help, I learned it was more about teasing out the questions that I know rather than getting caught up in unfamiliar terms or confusing wording. I would recommend her to anyone who fears test taking or needs some extra help formulating a study plan. I found an hour with Ilene much more productive than hours of memorizing terms and studying ineffectively. Ilene was also very knowledgeable about the field of dietetics and was generous with her time to give me advice on the daunting process of job searching and career planning. Thanks Ilene!"  Vanessa, RD
