About Diana

What an Amazing Year!!

I am so proud of all the students that I have worked with this year, you did it! And you did is sooooo Well! Parents, you have been amazing as well. These grades show that hard work, and dedication do pay off.

So, the school year is almost over, Yay! But... after a little break, a little beach, what do we need to do?

I know you will not let up now, the new school year is not that far off! So pick up a book, look at that math, read some history, then give me a call. We can make it fun to stay in practice, and maybe get a little ahead.

Summer sessions are filling fast, don't wait to long.

And as always Remember:

"Every Child learns at their own pace, and sometimes this pace is not keeping up with the pace in a classroom. If your child is becoming frustrated, and their grades are starting to slip, now is the time for intervention

In my years of teaching and tutoring, I have found that as the grades fall, so does the confidence. When a child loses confidence, their ability to learn new information decreases. This snowball effect continues unless steps are taken to improve confidence."
Individualized one-on-one tutoring, and developing strategies to help your child learn and retain information, will keep this school year from becoming a negative one.

Working together, Students, Parents, Teachers, and Tutors, your child has the best chance in achieving the knowledge and grades necessary for a great learning experience and a Great Report Card!

Are you ready to develop a plan to move you child forward, boost confidence, and improve on those grades?

E-mail me, we will work on a plan together, use this time wisely and start this year off on top!

Don't let the opportunity slip by.....just a few weeks left! This School year will be over before you can say Beach Time!!!!

Approved subjects

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.

ADD/ADHD

Having a diagnosis of ADD and ADHD does not mean an inability to comprehend and retain information.
It is a life style, and a process of adjustments, to achieve the ability to learn in environments not learning friendly to those thus diagnosed.

Recognizing signs early, children learn to adjust as they grow. As an educator, I have worked with parents, developed a plan, and encouraged children to participate in their plan. When they have some control, they are better prepared to carry out day to day activities with a better attitude and more success.


Elementary (K-6th)

Elementary Education not only includes the basics in Math, English, Literacy, Science, Geography and History, but also establishes the child's place in society. Each child grows in their independence and learns skills to prepare them for success during their academic career.
Educational success at this level is achieved with positive reinforcement in the classroom and at home. Each year the basics are reiterated and become more sophisticated as students advance in their studies. Tutoring at this level will reinforce these basic skills and will fill in the gaps sometimes missed as a student advances in their studies.

I began my teaching career in the 4th through 6th grade levels. I soon discovered that many students were losing ground in advancing because of gaps in the very fundamentals of their education. I chose to work at the 1st grade to work on the basic reading, phonics, and math concepts that ensure each student is ready to move ahead with confidence to the next level of learning. The student's joy in learning these skills that would serve them a lifetime, was indescribable! By empowering them with the basics, I was able to watch them move through the years building on each level as well-adjusted students and young adults. Today, I still stay in touch with many of my students; most have completed college, and started families. These same concepts I used in the school setting, I use with my students in tutoring, Parents and teachers are seeing the improvements in skills as well as attitudes.

Study Skills

Learning how to study, is almost more important than the actual study time. I have always encouraged students to take notes, or highlight important concepts to make finding them quick and easy. This way time is not wasted while reviewing material. You have already made your own "cliff notes" and study what is really important.
