Hello, my name is Diana S. and I have been tutoring classmates and small groups of tutees for over 15 years with an excellent success rate. The best reward that my students give me is when they realize they know the material on their own and I am there to guide them on an approachable and manageable path.

I believe that creating a study plan for each person is the best way to learn. Focusing on what is important, highlighting major topics and teaching concepts rather than just memorizing can really promote the understanding of material for students. I like to give students simulated problems such that they are able to predict their performance on upcoming school exams.

I have taken a wide variety of courses and exams and I am able to present it to my students in a manageable way. My students quickly learn shortcuts to problems and thus understand how to approach them efficiently.

Many of my students go on with their career paths and keep in touch many years down the line to let me know how they are doing and to remind me how much they were able to learn from our sessions. My students use the didactic skills that that I teach them and they are able to apply them practically. The latter is the main reason why students come back to me for help with their school exams.
