About Dr. Diana

While in college, I tutored students who were in need of assistance. I also taught English at the University while earning my Master's in English.

When I attained my position as a professor at a college, I was responsible for setting up a tutorial program which proved to be successful.

I enjoyed teaching all aspects of English which included grammar, essay writing, critical analysis of literature, and basics such as phonics and ESL.

I have a California Teaching credential K-14 and a Doctorate in Education. My tutoring hours are flexible and require a 24-hour cancellation notice.

Though I've taught large classes, I always prescribed and set up hours to work one on one with students. This was very important for the student's success and for my satisfaction as a teacher.

I hope I can assist students who hope to improve their writing and study skills.

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.

Bible Studies

I have a Master's Degree in English Literature and a Doctorate in Education. I taught for 35 years all types literature including the Bible. I've taken many courses concerning Bible Studies. I am currently instructing Apologetics at a local church

Handwriting

I have worked with youngsters who needed assistance in handwriting clarity. I also worked with ESL students who were learning the basics for the English language and were in need of learning to write the English alphabet. I also worked with students who had learning disorders and needed clarity with their handwriting.

Phonics

I took specific courses in phonetics. I designed a program which targeted the problematical areas for the Spanish-speaking. I also taught phonics to all ESL students for 35 years.

Public Speaking

I took courses in which I was trained to teach public speaking at San Francisco State University, and I also tutored students successfully in this field.
My minor in college was Theatre Arts and Public Speaking, and I included Public Speaking in all my curriculum when I taught at the community college level.

Study Skills

I taught remedial courses which included study skills for 30 years.
I also took specific training in this area.
