Why MyRDGuide Stands Out

Our programs will help you find direction and a study program that works for you, so that you can harness the full power of our materials to pass your RD or DTR exam.

Meet Ingrid Soto, MS, RDN, CPT

CEO, English Tutor

Ingrid Soto is an entrepreneur, mentor, and CEO of MyRDguide LLC. She firmly believes that every student CAN pass and WILL pass the RD/DTR exam, but she also believes having a support system is vital. After failing the exam multiple times, Ingrid became passionate about helping others in the same situation. While at UCONN, she was part of the Puerto Rican/Latin American Cultural Center (PRLACC) Mentorship program, which provides a support system and a safe place to grow personally and professionally. Ingrid always knew she wanted to provide this to a broader population. For the last five years, she has mentored and tutored hundreds of students pursuing a career in dietetics. Her compassionate character shows through her countless relationships with her prior and current students. 

Ingrid’s famous saying is, “It is not IF you pass the exam but WHEN you pass the exam.”

Meet Meghry Achekian

Meg’s passion for helping others shows through her vitality in working with people, whether it’s students when she gets home from managing an entire department at the county hospital or heading to another community hospital to provide individualized care to patients. She has ample experience in a food service setting, from working her way from a volunteer to a diet clerk and hospitality associate to a lead supervisor to a food service manager. Meg thoroughly enjoys her current role as a Patient Services Manager and aims to help patients enjoy their meals and trust that it will bring them comfort. Her well-roundedness will hopefully continue to help people see that being a dietitian is not necessarily only talking about what we put in our bodies!

Meet Saimyliz Rivera

Saimy had no guidance or support when she decided to take the RDN exam. She contacted Ingrid and Angela, who never left her alone in the process. They helped her increase her score AND confidence. She passed the exam in 2020 with a 26! Given that English is not Saimy’s first language, she thought taking the exam would be an impossible task. And now she leads the Spanish groups, allowing MyRDguiders to learn the material in Spanish as well! She currently works as a Clinical Dietitian at the San Lucas Episcopal Medical Center in Puerto Rico. She also has a private practice that offers individualized medical nutrition therapy management.

Saimy’s famous saying: “The language barrier should not stop you from taking the exam – never give up!
