Bio

Theres a saying we have in our culture, "every grain of rice wasted in this life will starve in the next." This means that we should be grateful for the resources we have before us because the most dangerous kind of waste is the kind you don't recognize until you lose it. I grew up in a family who immigrated to America as a refugee. They came to America with nothing because everything was stolen away from them during a civil war in their own country.

Theres a saying we have in our culture, "every grain of rice wasted in this life will starve in the next." This means that we should be grateful for the resources we have before us because the most dangerous kind of waste is the kind you don't recognize until you lose it. I grew up in a family who immigrated to America as a refugee. They came to America with nothing because everything was stolen away from them during a civil war in their own country. Coming to America with nothing, to now, having something, means a lot for the future generations. In this case, one of those something (aka opportunity) for me was education. My parents genocide survival story became the core of my inspiration, value for opportunity, and passion in education.

Though, I earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Microbiology and Biotechnology, as well as a Masters of Public Health in Epidemiology, I was always very passionate about teaching. As a result, my lifelong career goal is to become a Medical Physician, which in a sense is a teacher who specializes in teaching patients about how to take care of their own health.

My teaching style is to guide the student through the problems step-by-step. Each session will help the student understand the concepts and how to approach problems without feeling overwhelmed. There are two ways we can approach this, we can start by looking at the syllabus for the student's course and following a lesson based on the syllabus or I can come up with our lesson plans by assigning challenging homework to enhance the students learning. I am also willing to provide a periodic assessments and progress reports.

I can also adapt to the lessons of each individual student's needs and learning style and highly encourage students to be interactive in their learning as well and coming in with questions. Remember, there is no such thing as stupid questions! There are, though, such a thing as stupid answers, therefore the pressure is on me.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra is the language through which we describe patterns and is rudimentary to a lot of future subjects such as chemistry, physics, and even biology. Once you achieve an understanding of algebra, the higher-level math subjects become accessible to you. I strongly believe that basics must be first understood in order to understand the foundations of other subjects. Without the basics, it's impossible to move forward. Having many years of experience teaching math and having taught algebra in high school and college will help me to guide the student to their goals. With my background and passion for tutoring I am confident I would be a great tutor in algebra 1.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

You've completed algebra 1 and understood topics of linear equations, inequalities, and functions. I now welcome you to algebra 2, which is touch on systems of equations, inequalities, exponential and logarithmic functions, logarithms, imaginary and complex numbers, conic sections, and matrices. Don't let these fancy terms fool you. My passion and years of teaching math at the college level make me a great candidate to tutor algebra 2. I have helped tutor numerous students in this area. I feel very comfortable helping students reach their goals in this area.
Biology,

Biology

Biology is the basics to a more in depth and specific topics such as Microbiology (which is what my degree is in), Physiology, Food science, Medicine and even some Animal science degrees. Biology is a fun topic when you can understand the concepts and materials. As a microbiologist and a candidate for the MCAT 2015, I often have to review my biology extensively!

Prealgebra

Prealgebra

Helping students (K through college, adults) with pre-algebra had always been my passion! I've started out assisting my friends in math in middle school (since I've always received better grades than them), then moved to high school and college, where I aced every exams in math. My expertise in mathematics had encouraged me to tutor. Students who were tutored under me find themselves approaching problems with ease and in the process had a lot fun!

Math

ACT Math,

ACT Math

When I took my first ACT math, I scored a 16 on the exam, which isn't very good! After studying intensively and understanding the concepts and questions, I retook the ACT math for the second time and scored a 36, which was a huge improvement compared to a 16. I received admissions from several Colorado Universities and was above the standard curve scores in comparison to other students. I understand how hard the ACT was during the time of test taken, especially since I took the ACT twice. I can help you tremendously improve your score!

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

Big, fancy term, right? Don't be intimidated or fooled! Breaking the terminology down, look at the prefix, tri-, or "trig-" as it's sometimes called) means three, which you can already see that in math, the only shape that has three sides is the triangle. You would be right! Trig is the study of the properties of triangles. Why is it important? It's used in measuring precise distances, particularly in industries like satellite systems and sciences like astronomy. You might think I'm weird, but trigonometry is actually my favorite topic in math. I could honestly do trig problems all day! Out of the students in my class in high school, I was the only one who scores 100% on every trig exams!!! I really love trigonometry! Students who were tutored under me find themselves approaching problems with ease and in the process had a lot fun!

Anatomy

I took a 300 level course of Human Gross Anatomy and a dissection Human Gross Anatomy in college. Studying anatomy is heavily on memorization, but also understanding how each muscles, bones, veins, arteries...etc is named. When you have a strong understanding these names, you will have an easier time memorizing them. Being pre-med, it is recommended that I review anatomy because when you don't use it, you lose it!

very smart and patient tutor

Diana is very intuitive to the needs of my son. She has tailored to lessons to fit his personality, which can be inattentive at times. She absolutely loves math and has found a way to make the lessons interactive to keep him involved. Her assessments of my son and his abilities were right on, only after a 1 hour lesson. She even said an exact quote that his own Algebra teacher said. Diana is a rare gem. We love her.

Kelly, 5 lessons with Diana

Prepared, personalized, and fun!

Diana was great with my daughter. She proactively asked for topics and materials before the session to prepare. It was obvious during her lesson that Diana prepared which made the lesson so much more personal and productive. My daughter came out of the session with a huge smile on a subject she has struggled with. That's a 5 star in my book.

Amazing tutor

We went over my epidemiology homework and Diana made sure I understand each problem thoroughly. She explained each problem by giving examples which was super helpful and she was extremely patient with me.

100% happy, so helpful

Diana arrived at the place agreed upon early. She addressed all of my questions and made every to explain clearly how to find my answers. She was very knowledgeable and patient. I would recommend her to anyone that is struggling.

Knowledgeable and patient

She helped me understand how to write a lab report for a college biology class. She took her time to explain things and made sure I understood each concept before moving on. I would definitely see her again.

Diana is awesome!

She really helps me understand the algebraic problems that I need to work on in order to succeed in this class. I'll do the problems, and we'll compare notes. If I get something wrong, we dissect the question until I get the right answer.

Great Tutor

My niece needed extra help in math and got some great tips from her tutor. She was very patient and helpful. Will be using her again on a regular basis.

We did the session online and it was great!

My daughter is getting tutored for the Math portion of the ACT. We did the session online and it was great! Diana was patient with my daughter in reviewing essential formulas and going through problems. We are having a two-hour session this weekend. Highly recommend her. Thanks!
