About Diana

A writer and editor with over six years' professional experience, including at HBO and Penguin Random House, I'm looking to use my skills to give back to the community. In my spare time, I am an alumni mentor for UMass's undergraduate English program, encouraging students considering the major, or helping them determine their career path close to graduation. I believe that strong writing and comprehension skills, as well as an appreciation for literature and vocabulary, can be incredibly valuable and versatile assets at any point in your life -- whether you're a student or a working professional.

Whatever skills you're looking to improve -- be they writing, reading, or vocabulary, I want to help you take them to the next level. For college students and adults in the professional space, I want to help transform your work. For children and teenagers, I hope to inspire the same love and appreciation I have for the English language. I want to show kids that reading and writing can be fun and transformative -- not a chore.

I am uniquely qualified to tutor English, grammar, literature, vocabulary and writing because of my diverse professional history and education. Having written creatively for a living, these are all skills I put into use daily, and have groomed other professionals in the workplace to become stronger, better writers. Because I have experience outside of the classroom, I can easily help any student understand the value of these skills in the "real world" -- whether they be for pleasure or a profession. Tutoring doesn't have to feel like school, and sometimes working against the grain can offer new pathways into a once-difficult subject.

Are you interested to see how I can transform your, or your child's, academic life? Let's chat and see if my skills match what you're looking for.
