TherapyEd's Personal Tutoring for the NBCOT®'s OTR® Exam

For students interested in more personalized learning than our two-day courses can offer, TherapyEd offers live, individual, one-on-one online tutoring with experienced TherapyEd instructors. Designed for students who may be struggling with their preparation or are unsure of their study plan, TherapyEd's tutoring hours give exam candidates the chance to work individually with an instructor with demonstrated expertise in helping students pass the NBCOT®'s OTR® exam. 

TherapyEd tutoring is available for $70/hour ($60/hour if you have taken the TherapyEd 2-day course) and is individualized and customized to meet each student's needs. Personalized tutoring sessions offer:

  • Ways to master and apply content knowledge based on individual cognitive styles;
  • Techniques to effectively master critical reasoning in the exam format;
  • Interactive feedback on your unique approach to exam scenarios;
  • Strategies to improve your ability to choose the correct answer;
  • Insights into personal strengths and weaknesses;
  • Skills development to aid success--from content mastery to stress management, and all from leaders in the field who have expertise in both occupational therapy practice and academic education.

TherapyEd's tutors help you to prepare for the certification exam through 1 hour sessions conducted over the phone, on video chat, or--in select locations--face to face, and at times convenient for you and your schedule. In the tutoring session, you will be able to focus on your main concerns, improve your preparation, work through questions, plan your approach to high stakes exam items, learn how to find the correct answer through practice questions, and much more. Our tutors are all occupational therapists, each with over 20 years of experience in practice, education, and preparing students for the certification exam.

Our tutors include:

Dr. Toni Thompson, DrOT, OTR/L, C/NDT

Dr. Paula D. Carey, OTD, OTR/L

Dr. Kari Inda, Ph.D., OTR, CEAS
