Hello,

I am a native Californian with a great interest in teaching and sharing language. I have traveled extensively and find conversations are what bring opportunities to life.I tutor only one or two students at a time, allowing me to get to know them and focus on their specific goals.

My tutoring style is to engage students in practicing English. Students can use text books and previous lessons, or I can help develop lessons. I am committed to you as much as you are committed to your practice and work. I use informational questioning,grammar review for conversation, pronunciation, and real world experiences for my students. I will tutor with one:one or small groups of up to three students maximum with the same learning level. Learning or improving English while you are in America can only improve your life professionally and socially. I look forward to working with you.

My credentials for teaching include:
BS Degree Tourism and Hospitality, CSU Chico, CA
TOEFL, Advanced Teaching Certificate, Transworld School, San Francisco, CA
International Tour Guide: 39 countries and counting

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I am a Certified Advanced ESL teacher from Transworld School in San Francisco. I prefer to teach beginner and intermediate level ESL. I have been trained to identify a student's level and create lessons from that point. I give assignments where students build their confidence and speaking skills. I use techniques that are used in our schools to teach beginning language such as blending, vowel pronunciation and mouth exercises. I too have learned another language-Spanish- and apply repetition, humor and functional approach to what is learned.

I look forward to helping students express themselves and open new doors with English.

Excellent Teacher! — Dianna is an excellent teacher with a great personal demeanor. She really helped with my vocabulary and pronunciation. I was an advanced student, but she helped refine some of the little things I just couldn't get on my own: pronunciation of the "th/r/L" sounds, and the use of articles (I'm from Poland where we don't have them). She is very patient, and she is great to work with! ...
