After working as an ultrasound tech for several years, Melessa Cizik began to see a need in the ultrasound field. A number of techs and many recent graduates were looking for help in passing the ARDMS SPI exam and their specialty exams. As a result of this need for ultrasound tutors, and her love of teaching, Melessa began to offer services as a private ultrasound tutor. Upon realizing that the needs of the medical community were beyond what she expected, the business quickly expanded. All the while, Melessa continued developing and improving her technique and approach. The goal is for each client to enjoy their learning experience.
Soon it was necessary to expand the company to include an additional ultrasound physics tutor. Thus, Ashlee joined the team in 2013. With a combination of ultrasound, medical, and teaching experience, our ultrasound tutors are well equipped and happy to help each client reach their scanning or registry goals.
Currently, we offer private tutoring, registry review courses, and test practice for ultrasound physics, Ob/Gyn, vascular, and abdomen. For the other specialties or assistance, please feel free to inquire about tutor availability.
