ABOUT ME
I believe that the biggest hurdle to overcome with most struggling students is a fear of failure. Let me help you build the confidence you need for success!

I'm an Australian high school mathematics and science teacher, with seven years experience, who has recently moved to the bay area and I now teach math in a bay area international middle school. I'm an enthusiastic teacher, who loves helping students to succeed to the best of their ability, and loves all facets of mathematics and physics.

I will teach all levels from middle school mathematics up to college statistics and calculus. I have extensive experience teaching international baccalaureate mathematics.

I'm flexible in my teaching style, and will work with parents, schools and students to determine the format of tutoring most likely to bring them success. In all cases, however, I emphasize risk taking, self-sufficiency and critical thinking when approaching problems. My aim is to help students to become independent learners who eventually won't need my help. I strongly emphasize the need to work on homework and review outside of tutoring time.

I'm looking forward to helping you or your child become a more successful mathematician or scientist!

Wonderful Interaction! — Diana has done a great job with our son by helping him increase his confidence level as it relates to algebra 2. Her interaction can be characterized as patient, focused, and fun. I often hear her and my son laughing as they move through his lesson.
