About Diane

Positive and proactive teaching results in successful students.

I have over 12 years experience as an educator in special education and K-6 general education classes. Also, I have tutored under-performing students in Language Arts/Reading for over 6 years to meet or exceed grade level California State Standards as a vendor for SCUSD. In the summer of 2009, I was selected as a site coordinator for the Mayor's Summer Reading Program. Most students increased their fluency scores by 15-20 points in 4 weeks. I am currently a substitute teacher.

I am open to tutoring within a 15 minute drive of Roseville, CA. I am currently available after school on Tuesday and Thursday as well as an occasional Saturday. I have been most successful increasing reading fluency, comprehension and test taking skills/scores.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding your child's academic needs and goals for success. Thank you for your consideration.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have over 10 years of experience teaching both general and special education K-6 classes, as well as over 4 years tutoring under performing 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th graders to meet California standards.


I have taught and tutored both under performing and gifted students to increase their skills and test scores in Language Arts/English.


I have over 4 years tutoring and teaching English as a Second Language in reading and speaking.


I have an excellent track record in teaching subject content, test taking skills and improving scores for a variety of tests.

Public Speaking

Since I took my first debate class,I have been interviewed numerous times on TV, radio, and press regarding various public issues over the last 15 years. I have given speeches at public events and was asked to be a TV panelist for a Mayoral Debate. Speeches can inform, inspire, entertain, and/or persuade.

The number one fear of most people is speaking in public. So overcoming that fear is a priority whether you are in front of the class, at an interview, making a business presentation, or speaking in a meeting. In fact, how well you can speak in public may mean the difference in success or failure in many of today's careers.

So start today to be head of your class.


Reading is the most important skill any student needs for academic success. Usually, students increase their fluency and comprehension one or more grade levels in 60 to 80 hours.


I have taken a college course on world religions and extensively studied Christian biblical scripture. I have taught both Protestant and Catholic religious courses to teens and preteens as well as adult half and full day programs.

SAT Reading

I have an excellent record increasing reading and comprehension scores.

SAT Writing

My students experience great progress in all areas of language arts including writing, reading and testing skills.

Special Needs

I have four years of experience working with special needs children in both first and second grade, especially with mild-moderate autism. This is a very important time to establish both language and successful behavioral/learning skills.

I have had great success teaching non-verbal students to verbalize and high anxiety children to remain calm in various school and social situations.

All children deserve a good start in school and life so that they fulfill their full potential.

Study Skills

As a site coordinator for Kaplan K-12 Learning Systems I was responsible for overseeing various teachers instruction in their "Test Taking Skills" program for under performing students in SCUSD in 2007.

The best skills any student needs to learn is how to successfully study and take standardized class and Ca. State Standard tests. I am happy to report a median increase of anywhere from 15-20 points on most test scores.

Please give your child the best chance of succeeding in school by learning these very important skills.


I am qualified to teach both English writing and SAT writing standards for better academic or business communication, essays and reports.
