About Diana

Done and Done!

Another year is complete, can you believe it! Don't waste all that knowledge, keep your mind active. Just one hour or more a week will help to keep your mind working. Let's review what you've learned and even take it one step further, we can work on new concepts to get your ready for the new school year.

Limited hours this year, so plan ahead. It's never to early to plan for a future that will keep your mind strong and the learning easy.

And as always Remember:

"Every Child learns at their own pace, and sometimes this pace is not keeping up with the pace in a classroom. If your child is becoming frustrated, and their grades are starting to slip, now is the time for intervention

In my years of teaching and tutoring, I have found that as the grades fall, so does the confidence. When a child loses confidence, their ability to learn new information decreases. This snowball effect continues unless steps are taken to improve confidence."
Individualized one-on-one tutoring, and developing strategies to help your child learn and retain information, will keep this school year from becoming a negative one.

Working together, Students, Parents, Teachers, and Tutors, your child has the best chance in achieving the knowledge and grades necessary for a great learning experience and a Great Report Card!

Are you ready to develop a plan to move you child forward, boost confidence, and improve on those grades?

E-mail me, we will work on a plan together.

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.

ADHD

Having a diagnosis of ADD and ADHD does not mean an inability to comprehend and retain information.
It is a life style, and a process of adjustments, to achieve the ability to learn in environments not learning friendly to those thus diagnosed.

Recognizing signs early, children learn to adjust as they grow. As an educator, I have worked with parents, developed a plan, and encouraged children to participate in their plan. When they have some control, they are better prepared to carry out day to day activities with a better attitude and more success.

Elementary (K-6th)

Elementary Education not only includes the basics in Math, English, Literacy, Science, Geography and History, but also establishes the child's place in society. Each child grows in their independence and learns skills to prepare them for success during their academic career.
Educational success at this level is achieved with positive reinforcement in the classroom and at home. Each year the basics are reiterated and become more sophisticated as students advance in their studies. Tutoring at this level will reinforce these basic skills and will fill in the gaps sometimes missed as a student advances in their studies.

I began my teaching career in the 4th through 6th grade levels. I soon discovered that many students were losing ground in advancing because of gaps in the very fundamentals of their education. I chose to work at the 1st grade to work on the basic reading, phonics, and math concepts that ensure each student is ready to move ahead with confidence to the next level of learning. The student's joy in learning these skills that would serve them a lifetime, was indescribable! By empowering them with the basics, I was able to watch them move through the years building on each level as well-adjusted students and young adults. Today, I still stay in touch with many of my students; most have completed college, and started families. These same concepts I used in the school setting, I use with my students in tutoring, Parents and teachers are seeing the improvements in skills as well as attitudes.

Phonics

Learning to read is an exciting time for students.
The basics of reading start with letter sounds and blends. As students learn the sounds and how to blend them together they are excited to sound out words and find themselves reading words and sentences independently. Sometimes this takes a little longer to comprehend and not reading accurately can affect your child"s ability to move forward with other school work. As they learn to read with more accuracy grades in other areas will also improve. In a private school setting I have taught the phonetic value of letters, blends, and syllables, rhyming, and word families. In my years of tutoring, I have helped students build reading skills and become more successful in their studies.

Social Studies

Students gain insight as we discuss and learn about the world today and how it has been impacted by past events. I have taught World War I and II, and government. Understanding the past helps us to improve on the future.

Special Needs

Every Student learns differently. I evaluate and address what is needed to successfully help each student, at their level of comfort. I work with many students that have existing IEP's, and work with their teachers of help them become successful

Study Skills

Learning how to study, is almost more important than the actual study time. I have always encouraged students to take notes, or highlight important concepts to make finding them quick and easy. This way time is not wasted while reviewing material. You have already made your own "cliff notes" and study what is really important.
