Merry Thanksgiving and Happy Christmas!
As the Holiday season approaches, I wanted to take this time to thank all the wonderful families and students that I work with now And in the future. I love being a part of your child's education and celebrating all the successes! To a New Year of reaching milestones, conquering fears, and building confidence! May you all be blessed and have a blessed Holiday!
On another note: during this vacation time from school-don't forget to read, practice math, and I know some of you will have Winter Break packets. Please, do not wait until the last minute to start these!
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, use this time wisely and start this year off on top!
Don't let the opportunity slip by.....just a few weeks left! This School year will be here before you can say School Shopping!!!! Merry Thanksgiving and Happy Christmas!

Ms. Diana, your caring and support to my child is way too great for me to only say thank you. Yet, I want to say with much appreciation, THANK YOU!!! Thank you for planting a seed and contributing to my child's future.
Diana is always well prepared and intuitive when it comes to helping Major. She immediately understands his trouble spots, and focuses on them; without making it painful, until Major can consistently work through them. She knows when to go back and reinforce previously covered techniques, and when Major is ready for more of a challenge. She's a perfect fit for Major's requirements.
Diana is able to connect with her students. She understands where they are academically (she is helping our son with reading/writing/
comprehension) and connects with their core. She uses material that is familiar to them in order to teach and to explain concepts effectively. She also builds trust so that the student is comfortable revealing their weaknesses. We are fortunate to have Diana join our family team! Kudos....
My 8th grader saw her math grades increase from a D to a B by the end of the year and it was due to Diana's help. This year, she insisted on starting off the school year with Diana from the beginning and this is from the teenager who says she can do everything herself!
Mrs. Diana is an exceptional tutor! She comes always prepared and does not mind adjusting her learning plan when needed to address the concerns provided by my son's school. She is patient but tough and always works to bring the most out of my son during her time with him. His study habits have greatly improved and he is making good grades in school. She is the best and we can't imagine getting through the school year without her!
Diana is very patient with my daughter. She takes her time and also makes learning fun. My daughter does not like school but loves going to see Mrs. Diana for math tutoring. She has learned so much since starting and I couldn't ask for a better tutor.
My daughter recently started working with Diana after a recommendation from a friend. She has been great!!! Shes very patient and understanding and very knowledgeable about all subject matters. I already see a difference in my daughter's grades, and she looks forward to every visit.
Diana has shown great patience with my little girl. After two years with the same teacher with the same habits, my little one has fallen behind. Diana has worked very hard and progress is achieved every lesson!
My son is in elementary school and needs extra help with English. This is the second summer we have asked Diana to help because she works amazingly well with him. She's very patient and I can see his confidence grow after each lesson. I really appreciate the detailed summary provided after each lesson so I have a record of the topics that have been studied. Diana is definitely helping my son acquire the skills he needs to succeed in school.
Diana is the best tutor. She is patient, responsible, friendly, punctual, professional, dedicated, etc. Every time that I am communicating her any request she is willing to help me. I am grateful to have found Diana. Her English classes are outstanding.
Diana started with us last year as a reading tutor and now a math tutor. My daughter would rather be playing outside than going to school or doing homework however, when she knows Diana is on the way she looks forward to the tutoring session. Diana comes prepared with a variety of learning materials and games tailored to what my daughter needs to work on. They are on task the entire hour, and when Diana leaves my daughter tells me about all the things she learned, even telling me the other day that she would like to buy the Math game Diana brought over to play. I would strongly recommend (and have mentioned her several times to others seeking a tutor) Diana as a tutor for your son or daughter!
Since Diana has been working with my son his math confidence has increased. He is always eager to show her what he has learned. She is patient, kind, and learns her student quickly and comes prepared to keep the students interest. Additionally, she provides a good written summary after each lesson so keeping up with progress is made simple. My son looks forward to her visits each time. What a great find. She is a wonderful WyzAnt tutor.
Diana tutors my son (4th grade) and my daughter (7th grade), and they both really enjoy working with her. She is patient and makes learning interesting and fun. Diana has tutored them in all subjects including Science and even Spanish. I couldn't be more pleased.
My daughter is excited to go to her lesson every week! Mrs. Diana makes learning fun and has a new activity planned for her time.
She is very thoughtful and patient. She knows how to keep my daughter motivated.
My daughter describes her as "pretty" and "good."
My son really enjoys working with her. She is patient and has a great way of making the lessons fun.
We had our first session yesterday and Diana was great with our children. They actually seemed to enjoy math! There was instruction and some games thrown in to keep their attention. Off to a great start!
Mrs. Gaither is very patient and truly has helped my son progress. He went from trying to pronounce words to actually reading. My son looks forward to Mrs Gaither's visits. I would highly recommend her.
I cannot be more pleased. My daughter enjoys Miss Diana and actually is excited about learning. Miss Diana is very patient and caring.
Great job with working with both our boys to get them ready for 2nd and 4th grade. Diana assess where they are and come prepared with weekly worksheets for them to complete during their session.
Diana is a kind and patient tutor. She always provides encouragement and praise to my daughter, whose poor self confidence has been an ongoing issue. My daughter is starting to feel more comfortable tackling math problems and is demonstrating improved motivation when it comes to doing math homework.
I appreciate Diana's patience and that she is always prepared. She even brings extra materials to help me work with her at home.
She can study anything with our son without notice. She's so flexible with test schedules and helping our son be prepared even when we spring test studying on her when she walks in the door. We initially sought her help for writing and she is now helping with all subjects. Even his teachers have commented on how helpful she has been! Plus it gives me an hour to play catch up for other tasks while she is here!
My son is 4 years old and learning a preschool curriculum. Since working with Diana his thirst for learning has increased; and I am beginning to see more growth and development than when he was just working with me or my husband. Diana's caring attitude and love for teaching children was apparent from her first visit. She is also extremely patient which I deeply appreciate given my son's high energy level. I would definitely recommend her.
Ms. Diana and my grandson connected right away. She is caring and very patient. My grandson looks forward to his lessons and our family has seen a big difference since the lessons started.
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.
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 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.
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.
