About Diana

Struggling to learn something? It's impossible to learn when you're frustrated and/or stressed.

My passion for learning and teaching can make it possible for you to enjoy the learning process and be successful. I am very personable, create lessons just for you, and I care!

Hi! My name is Diana.

My experience: I have worked in education for over 16 years. I have worked with preschoolers, kindergarten through college, and adult students. I have extensive experience teaching large groups (ensuring individual learning), small groups, and one-on-one. My experience comes from having been a teacher, tutor, substitute teacher, student (as an adult), 4-H leader, mother, and grandmother. I have knowledge of and experience with many subjects such as reading, math (all), science (all), English, study skills, test taking skills, and even sewing and flute. A more detailed list is on the left.

My Methods: My experiences with all ages and subjects allows me to personalize each session to your needs. I provide extra materials and/or resources when necessary to enhance our lessons. The sessions are hands-on. Hands-on learning is the key to success. As I guide and tutor, I adjust our lessons constantly to ensure the most results. I also tailor our lessons to your personality and learning style. When you can relax and be comfortable, you can learn!

I'm available for one session, several sessions, long term or group sessions.

If you are interested or want more information, please contact me.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 for high school or college, and even elementary age.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with elementary aged children in education for over 15 years. I have worked in a classroom setting (preparing lessons, etc.). I have also worked extensively in tutoring with elementary aged children. I use the student's textbooks to maintain the classroom teaching while working on basic skills. I also work on confidence as I believe that is the building block for learning and success.
