Expertise in the subject area, excellent teaching strategies and patient.
Diane S. tutored my daughter in SAT Math. She has the gift to be able to identify where weaknesses lie and sets specific goals to overcome those weaknesses. Not only was basic and advanced math reviewed so that my daughter was refreshed in all areas, but she also took the time to work through different strategies for solving various types of problems, which is so important when taking a test such as the math SAT. Diane has a wonderfully pleasant personality, is very patient, well organized, and brings forth a lot of expertise. Diane always communicates to me at the end of the lesson what she went over, what review is still needed and the progress that is being made. Her expertise in the subject area, her teaching strategies and goal setting skills really set her apart from others. I highly recommend Diane S.

ACT Math
Diane is easy to communicate with, was prompt and very helpful to my son who is studying for the ACT test. We also plan to have Diane help with Honors Chemistry. It's wonderful to have a tutor who can come to our home and work 1:1 with my son.

Amazing, One of a Kind Tutor!
I have worked with Diane for the past few months in preparation for taking the GRE Quantitative section. While my math skills have definitely improved tremendously with her help-- and allowed me to get a GRE score above what I ever dreamed I could do-- I am most thankful to Diane for her patience and care throughout the whole process. Diane broke down each problem that I did not understand into small steps, slowly working to make sure I understood each aspect before we moved forward in the problem. She also used real-life examples in her explanations so that not only did I understand how to the problem, but I understood why, and so would able to apply those math concepts in future problems. When I met Diane for the first time, I told her my apprehensions about the exam, but she assured me throughout the process that this was something I was capable of doing and continued to build my confidence in my math abilities. She even messaged me the day of the exam to send me her best wishes and asked me to keep her updated as I apply to grad schools. Diane is truly a tutor who cares about each and every one of her students and is willing to do all she can to help them to succeed! I am so grateful to Diane and have only the most positive things to say about her. Use Diane as your tutor, and you will not be disappointed!

Focused math tutoring helped improve SAT score
My son scored 620 in Math and 720 in English in his PSAT. With the hope of improving his Math score, I took the help of Diane, and put my son through an intensive one-week session during the school break. This contributed much to improving his Math score. He scored 740 in Math and 730 in English in his only SAT sitting. She was systematic in her analysis of my son’s areas of weaknesses. Not only did she step him through the basics, but also helped him avoid careless mistakes through numerous practice questions. She was also kind, patient and accommodating to our needs in scheduling.
