About Diana

Dear Students,

Serving as a language and music teacher over the last thirty years has provided me with the experience to encourage and motivate my students to enjoy learning and to utilize what they have learned. Having taught English to international students in Germany for 13 years, I have been able to develop diverse and interactive teaching skills. In addition ot tutoring, I teach English as a second or other language at the State College of Florida as well as Pendleton School at the IMG Academies. I am also in my fifth year of teaching at a private music academy. I persistently strive to help students achieve their highest learning goals using their critical and creative thinking skills. My Bachelor's degree is in Music and my Master's is in Education with specialization in English. My teaching is customized to each student's strengths.

I speak several languages myself,including fluent German, which gives me additional insight into the process of language learning. Please don't hesitate to ask for my recommendation letters and student testimonials.

Thank you for your time and I hope you will consider me for your tutoring needs.

Sincerely,

Diana

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.

ESL/ESOL

My experience in ESOL teaching extends over many years, ten of which were as instructor for a language institute in Munich, Germany. While there I taught one-on-one lessons and classes of all levels and age groups, including CEO's, and managers of well known companies such as Agfa and Siemens. I graduated with a master's degree with a 4.0 average in education with specialization in ESOL. Here in the Bradenton area I teach students of various native languages such as Spanish and German.
Please ask me for my resume and recommendation letters, if desired. My passion is showing students the fun in language learning and how they can speed up their learning.

SAT Reading

I teach college composition and reading at the State College of Florida as well as ESL there and at IMG academies.

Writing

My masters degree in education, with specialization in English, consisted mainly of research and writing. My professors were impressed with my academic writing ability and made several positive comments. I graduated with a 4.0 GPI. I Have a strong background in languages including five years of Latin, in which I placed second in the National Latin Examination. This definitely has helped me with writing and the aptitude for learning and understanding the constructs of language. I have tutored students in reading comprehension and writing for their SAT's.
