About Diana

I am currently teaching literacy through the local library. I proofread and QC technical books. I have experience with NOW! Foundations training, and I studied English in college with good marks (upper level GPA 3.4, English GPA 3.8). I have gotten an excellence award at my proofreading job for dedication and quality of work. I am easy to talk to and empathetic.

My teaching strategy is to make a student's weak areas his/her strengths. As we go through more lessons, I become more familiar with the student's tendencies for certain mistakes or misunderstandings, and I will adjust the student's course.

When the student struggles with reading or spelling, I like to work on phonological awareness first--the foundation of reading comprehension. This includes understanding how mouth movements correlate to letters, segmenting sounds in words, etc., and then parse the many phonics rules that pervade the English language.

I can change teaching strategies depending on the needs of the student. My goal is to make the student self reliant and self correcting.

I can also challenge and help students who are bored in class because they are too advanced.
