About Diane

I am a retired teacher/administrator. I have 20 years' experience teaching grades 6-12. I taught both Spanish and social studies and was the department chairperson for both subjects. Additionally, once I attained my Master's degree in ESL, I taught classes at the college level. Later, I earned a Doctorate degree in Bilingual Education/Curriculum & Instruction and taught graduate courses at Wayne State University. Before retiring, I took a one-year position as Director of Curriculum & Instruction for a private parochial school and then took on the position of Director of Long-Distance Learning for a local private college.

Recently, I tutored a college graduate student, helping her edit her Master's thesis and am happy to say that she has successfully completed the project and is enjoying teaching in the Special Education field.

I love working one-on-one with students and designing sessions to meet the individual needs of the student.

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.

Public Speaking

I have a Doctorate degree and I have done a lot of public speaking, as well as help others prepare. For example, in 2001, I was the keynote speaker for a Dr. Martin Luther King convention. Between 2000-2004, I traveled, within state, to speak to educators about multicultural approaches to teaching. Additionally, I have worked with local politicians and have spoken on their behalf at political gatherings. Public speaking is one of my areas of passion; therefore, helping others prepare for public speaking gives me wonderful satisfaction, as well.
