Bio

Well another new school year is underway, and our long Summer has turned to Fall.

This is my favorite time of the year! The weather is cooler and everyone is reviewing and getting ready to dive into a new year of studies.

Are you feeling confident? Do you need more review time? Now is the time to get the help you need before the new concepts start. Instead of getting behind, take a giant step forward. Be proactive and stay ahead.

Well another new school year is underway, and our long Summer has turned to Fall.

This is my favorite time of the year! The weather is cooler and everyone is reviewing and getting ready to dive into a new year of studies.

Are you feeling confident? Do you need more review time? Now is the time to get the help you need before the new concepts start. Instead of getting behind, take a giant step forward. Be proactive and stay ahead.

Limited at home hours this year, and a few online times are left. Call if you want to stay on top of the game. You have the power to make this your best year yet!

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.

Common Core,

Common Core

These State standards for Math and Language Arts were set to ensure all students graduate from High School with the skills necessary to succeed in College and Career. When working with students, we not only apply these concepts to pen and paper, but discuss how they will further them in life skills. As students learn how concepts directly affect them in life, they become more important to learn.
Elementary (K-6th),

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.
Handwriting,

Handwriting

As Children enter to world of iPads and computers, handwriting is becoming a lost art. From forming the letters correctly in standard and cursive, to finding and correcting mistakes, to being able to communicate if the electricity goes out, and to understand what they have written, handwriting is a large part of each child's ability to communicate. From 3 year olds to high school handwriting has always been an important part of the learning process.
Phonics,

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.

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.

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.

Excellent tutor

Diana was patient, she was great at explaining the basic concepts. My son began his tutoring session unsure and insecure. After just one lesson his confidence was visible. I can’t wait until the next lesson.

Off to a Nice Start!

The first lesson with Diana was off to a great start. My son seemed to enjoy working with her and her patience seemed evident in his "recap" of the lesson. He seemed excited to finish the work sheets she left for him as practice. Looking forward to working with her.

Very patient and understanding

Diana has really helped my daughter with her reading/math comprehension. My daughter was struggling in reading and math and she was able to help her by teaching her a better to tackle her words and an easier way to do math. My daughter feels more confident now.

Exceptional & Results Driven Tutor!

Ms. Diana is the ideal match for my daughter! She’s engaging, encouraging, reliable, patient and always professional. Ms. Diana asks leading questions to help my daughter understand the skills and concepts taught. The sessions held thus far has enabled my daughter to focus directly on the process of learning rather than the correctness of the answer. In addition, Ms. Diana is sensitive to my daughter’s learning style and explains the concepts from several angles; this approach has helped my daughter’s self-esteem tremendously. My daughter is excelling under her tutelage and I am extremely satisfied. I highly recommend Ms. Diana!

A Gracious Gift

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.

Well prepared tutor

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 knows how to connect with her students

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....

Hussein, 18 lessons with Diana

She's great!

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!

Awesome Tutor

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!
