University of Houston (Education English)
Teaching is a calling to connect with another person and help them solve their problems, whether it be in a school setting or business and sales setting.
Because Houston is an international city, I have had the joy and privilege of helping many new adult residents improve their English pronunciations, as well as their writing. My international students tell me they are pleased with their progress in their speaking and writing English. In addition, I have been both a public and private school teacher for grades 5-college, and a marketing director for a large medical practice. As a marketing director, I developed patient interest articles for magazines and websites. My main field of expertise is helping the student with essay writing and literary analysis, pronunciation improvement, grammar and vocabulary building and editing and proofreading.
I will stay on task with a student and cover the material required for testing and course assignments. Sometimes what brings success to a student is having an encouraging tutor to sit right there and establish guidelines for reviewing the assignment.
We can set up goals and objectives for you on our first visit. Some of my recent tutoring has involved helping the student to write well-formatted sentences, paragraphs and reports. Other students have seen improvement in their enunciation as we practice where to place proper stress on a word.
If it's study skills, improving your reading and speaking, or helping you edit your reports and essays, I am available day or evening for you, and I look forward to hearing from you. Please note additional certifications with WyzAnt in English, Bible studies, grammar,phonics, proofreading, Sat Writing, spelling, study skills, TOEFL, and vocabulary.

Dianne has a passion for teaching. We were having trouble with pronunciation and speaking clearly. Dianne gently taught us pronunciation in English time after time. We are very satisfied with our English lessons.
I took about 10 American pronunciation lessons with Dianne during the last 2 months. Dianne is a really great tutor, probably one of the best language tutors I've ever met. I feel a lot of improvement with my speech, as well as people around me. Few points about Dianne:
- Focused: Dianne was extremely responsive to my development goals as I stated it. She helped me a lot to understand deeply my real development need.
- Really eager to help: She suggested lesson plans for me and prepares something new for each of our lessons, trying to build on the progress I made. This adds a lot of dynamics to our lessons. Dianne also goes the extra mile sending some useful links and materials via e-mail to practice at home. For me it means she really cares.
- Nice person: Last but not the least, Dianne is a really open, easygoing person. Always have a great time working with her.
I've studied English with her for two months. She has taught English to people from many countries for several years. She is very kind and gave me a lot of useful information. I think she enjoys teaching many things to her students. If you need to find a good teacher, I would like to recommend you to Dianne. You will enjoy your class with her!!
Dianne is a good ESL tutor. She is very detail-oriented and eager to teach! My nephew came from China two years ago, we have been working with her almost a year. I can see my nephew has progressively increased his English.
I spent more than 6 months with her. She is very punctual and professional. She knows how to teach foreign language well from lots of experiences.
She can cover grammar, pronunciation, writing and speaking, too. The time with her was really helpful to me, especially for some problems in my Asian pronunciations.
Dianne helped me a lot with my TCU application essay! She corrected my grammar, spelling and helped the essay flow easily. I will be going back to her again if I need help with an essay.
Mrs. Dianne is a great tutor. She met with my six year old daughter who needs her reading skills sharpened for 1st grade. Mrs. Dianne was very patient with her. During the session she used many techniques to teach her that I didn't think of. My daughter and I both enjoyed her company. We will definitely have many more sessions with her in the future.
I arranged tutoring with Dianne for a Japanese client living and interning in Houston. Dianne was flexible enough to work around our client's hectic work schedule, and having just reunited with our client before she traveled home to Japan, I can confirm that her English skills have improved. I would highly recommend Dianne for English language tutoring services.
I have contracted Dianne for three months so far to tutor both my wife and son who have very little in English. Dianne did an outstanding job starting with basic lessons that improved their language a lot in a very short time. What we really like about this tutor is her lesson plan she is bringing every day. In addition, she brings all needed tools including examples, exercises, and homework papers through which both wife and kid go with her in a very nice and organized manner. Dianne is very punctual, dedicated and has extremely nice personality. She dealt with my wife as her sister and my son as her son and that reflected very positively to their desire to learn. I highly recommend Dianne for very effective tutoring.

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.
I am an ordained minister of the Christian faith and my husband and I have taught Bible studies for Prison Fellowship Ministry at Ramsey and Carol Young Prisons in the Houston area.
Bible learning is one of my passions and Scripture study has brought me into a more "level" state of being.
Although I am a Christian, most of my students are not, but adherents to the Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, or other beliefs. I respect that and do not attempt to proselytize.
My degree is in Education and my major subject field is English. I am already working with four foreign students with their written and spoken English skills.
With a BS in Education from The University of Houston in 1965, and a major in English, I can assist ESL/ESOL students in achieving a greater proficiency in reading, writing and speaking.
I taught ESL in Cairo, Egypt, at a Copt seminary, and feel that I learned as much (culturally speaking) from the students as they did from me.
With the increase of adult multi-national residents in Houston,and the importance of their gaining English proficiency, my skills and desire to inspire are a plus.
I am certified as an English and grammar teacher, and writing is one of my specialties. I have helped students format their reports and essays, and taken a critical look at their sentence structure and grammatical correctness.
With a BS in Education from The University of Houston in 1965, and a major in English, I have had years of training in teaching reading and phonics to children; and also, these principles apply to adults desiring to learn English grammar.
I have a degree in English from the University of Houston and experience writing web-based and magazine content for a large medical practice in Houston. Also I proof-read our web pages, brochure and magazine submissions written by others.
Currently, I am helping an attorney and a UH student with their reports. Both clients need help with proper grammar, punctuation and sentence flow.
I look forward to discussing how I can assist you in improving the readability of your essays and articles. Fees are negotiable for proof-reading services.
Since most of my students are international professionals and college students, I have been successful helping them with pronunciation of letters and words. My expertise is in using English and grammar correctly, and knowing how to emphasize words on any subject that the speaker desires to get across to the listeners.
I have 20 years experience talking to patient groups for a large medical practice, and developed the ability to engage the listener. Lastly, I help the student to effectively group main points and details in his/her speech.
As an English major, I love to write and can help the SAT student to organize and proofread his/her essay paper. I am certified by WyzAnt to tutor SAT essay writing. Also, I have written several articles for local magazines and I have a good feel for what engages the reader.
I look forward to helping the student create an articulate and well-written essay for the important SAT exam.
As a former 5th grade teacher, I know that good study/observation habits are the basis of success in everything we do. "Paying attention" is most of the battle in acquiring knowledge. The secret to paying attention is being interested in what the teacher or book is saying. How do we do that?
For history, government and social studies, for example, we need to take notes on key facts and ideas. Review what we have written and summarize by rewriting the main points.
I have a BS in Education, and also have an English major. When I help a student with grammar, it's important to begin with what the student knows and build on increasing his/her writing and speaking skills.
I look forward to helping the student understand how to priortize assignments and do the short assignments first. Also, another useful idea is using mnemonic techniques.
Each student acquires knowledge differently, and it's important to have a tutor that is sensitive to each student's needs.
Writing engaging essay and articles for doctors and newspapers has been my field of expertise for 40 years.
With a major in English and years writing web and magazine articles for a large company, I can help you create your own style, and together we can make sure your grammar, sentence structure and punctuation are correct and appealing.
