It is hard to believe that 2013 is almost over! This year has been tremendous for successfully achieving goals, reaching milestones and creating new areas to develop. Everyone has worked hard. As I review and reflect on this year that will soon be behind us, I need to put the Families and Students that I have worked with at the top of my list for what I am Thankful for. Your success has also been my success. Some of you I will see in the bright new year that is before us, and some of you have moved on to continue the path that has been set for you. Godspeed to all of you, I know your future is bright and the world is a much better place for having your intelligence and determination in it!

Awesome! What an amazing way for elementary children to learn algebra! Parents this will help you as well. But...if you are still having problems, I do have a few Saturday slots available. This has been a very busy few months! For the most part I am totally booked. The kids are doing great, grades are improving and self esteem is rising. Practice, practice, practice is so important. The more you do anything, the better you become. Read, expand your mind, learn new words, repeat those times tables over and over until you don't even think about them anymore! As we gear toward the upcoming Holidays, think about educational games and gifts. The time you spend playing these games with your kids is priceless and fun! Everyone wins!

Let's... read more

Can you believe July is almost over? This has been a busy summer! The stores have loaded up with school supplies and I have seen many parents with lists shopping already.

I know Students And Parents are breathing a sigh of relief! Actually I am as well! So lets All take a breather, and relax for just a bit. But first we need to set up our Summer Schedule. Whaaaaaat? Yes, all that hard work paid off this year, so lets not slack now. 1 hour, one, two, or three times a week will keep you on top of your skills, and maybe pick up a few more to carry you into next year. Stay on top, catch up, practice, learn something new, and have fun, we can do it all and you can still have a enough time to enjoy your summer. I'm flexible, so give me a call today, we can set up a schedule that revolves around your busy summer hours. What are your waiting for? Summer is just around the corner, let's do this!
You! You have to participate in class, complete all assignments, and homework, keep a notebook with all your notes, participate in class, complete all class warm-ups, study for tests, and request help if you do not understand a concept! Oh, and participate in class!!!!! This is your last quarter, have you done these things? If not start now, and just see if your grade improves. Still need help? I have a few week-end hours open, and what is a few hours on the week-end if your grade needs improving? Call me, lets devise a plan to finish this year with a better grade. You can pass this year, but it is up to you!
Well... I think we all have Spring Fever anyway! And there are signs of green things growing everywhere. Spring Break is just around the corner as well. Do you have plans? If you are looking for some lesson refresher time, completing projects, reading time...I have time! There are several day time slots available, and some evenings as I move my students around to accommodate busy schedules. Call me...I am flexible. Lets use this free time wisely, and be prepared to go back to school and complete this last quarter with the confidence of knowing how to do the lessons. Happy Spring!
But... It is the middle of the school year. You held out this long, if grades are not improving, there is a good chance without help your child could be repeating this grade next year. The class is moving on, is your child stuck back in the first quarter material? Have you met with the teachers? Don't give up! Let's evaluate the problem, and work on a solution. Sometimes children do need to repeat a grade level, not passing could mean they were not ready to move on. But sometimes with extra help, one-on-one tutoring, they can catch up, understand the material and be ready to move on. Check out your options, meet with your child's teachers, have a family meeting, and then call me. Together we can build confidence, and skills. Tick, Tock!
What do you think when you hear these terms? Panic? Denial? Frustration? Think back, well a little further back, maybe ask your parents. These are new terms for something that has been around for a long time. Who were the obnoxious kids in your class or your parents class, maybe a little out of control, didn't quite fit in with the rest of the class. Yes, I had kids like this in my class. But, they were brilliant! Their ability to remember math facts, dates, ability to read material I did not want to read. They just could not sit still, and sometimes needed help with "people skills". ADD/ADHD has been around a long time, it now has a new name and a bunch of new drugs to counter the behavior. Your way to treating your Child's diagnosis medically is ONLY between you and your Doctor. You also have to think about the behavior. What you do now will be with your child for the rest of their lives. Get all the facts, talk with other parents, this is absolutely... read more
To an Awesome Start! Everyone is working hard, grades are looking good! Lets keep the momentum going. Parents, as hard as your child is working, I am in the background reviewing, planning lessons and ways to help your child improve their skills. I do understand illness, and last minute plans, but cancellations mean loss of income to me. Please remember to give at least 24 hour notice for each cancellation, this way I might be able to shift and fill the spot. Working together we can make this the best year yet. Thanks for all of your help, I look forward to working with each and every Family.

Remember, I do have some daytime hours for younger children, and if your child is home sick, I can help catch them up if they have missed time and assignments. Call, I am here to help each child meet their potential. Have a Super New Year! Diana
Twas the week before Christmas, Oh no! I haven't finished my Christmas Shopping yet! But that's OK I still have Christmas Eve. I have been busy with my Students. Booking every hour possible, I have a few left if anyone is looking for lessons between the Holidays. January 2013 I will be filling daytime hours with Pre-K Students, preparing for the rigors of Kindergarten. Register early, these times fill up fast! My warmest wishes to everyone for a very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful start for the New Year!
It's ChristmasTime! Can you believe another year will soon be over? As we reflect on this years events and look forward to a bright new year, keep your childs' education in mind. There are so many opportunities we all need to take advantage of. There are so many educational games, cards, books, and even dvd's that would make great stocking stuffers, events to broaden your childs' mind and time spent just talking. And of course, your weekly tutoring sessions! During this free time between the holidays, I will be available and ready to work around your busy Christmas and New Years schedules. They have been working hard, but the long haul will be coming in January. Let's not slack now. Keep them sharp and ready for new challenges. Call, text, email, we can schedule a time that is convenient for you. As always, I am looking forward to working with you and your child in the coming New Year. Happy Holidays to everyone!
As Thanksgiving and the Holiday Season draws near, I want to take this time to thank all of my Students and Parents for the opportunity to work with each of you. We are all so busy, I buzz in and out of your lives on a weekly schedule, but I am not sure I have properly thanked you for allowing me to come to your home and work with your child. I am Thankful each time I see a light bulb go off and a students face lights up. I am Thankful for the progress each student is making. I am Thankful for the opportunity each new student gives me to work with them. I am Thankful for the supportive Parents, and the friendship extended to me. I am Thankful for this amazing job that allows me to work one-on-one with students. I am Thankful for WyzAnt, that allows me to reach students on a broader basis, their support team, and web site. I am blessed this season, and Thank each and everyone for a wonderful and prosperous year. I wish each of you all the success, prosperity... read more
The race is over, grades are in, how was your first report card? Are they a little lower than expected? Are you having trouble keeping up? It does not have to be this way, you are capable of getting great grades! So lets do a reality check...Did you hand in every assignment? You know they are a BIG part of your overall grade. How were your test grades? Did you Study? Do you understand the material? Well, maybe we need to reorganize before the next report card! Most parents talk about bad test grades and their child being unorganized. This is something that can be improved on with one-on-one tutoring a few times a week. I can teach your child skills that can help them improve their grades and build confidence in their abilities. Then sit back and watch the grades improve! They can do it, working together with your child we will prove it to them!
The heat of Summer has caught up with us! Yes, there is only one thing to do ... dive into a great book! Catch up with a mystery, science fiction, world history, or even review some Math, English or Science. But pick up a book and put down the game controllers and turn off the TV for 1 hour each day. Need help reviewing, call me! I can put my book down for an hour, just for you. So ... Stay cool, read a book (preferably one about snow), and call me for assistance. Perfect recipe for a long hot Summer!
