About Diane

My number one priority is that you or your child gets results and is engaged with what we are working on. With ACT that means I'm always paying attention to how the student is thinking and how I can best prioritize the skills they need to do better. With academic students it means finding what they understand, finding what they don't, and bridging that gap at a speed they can understand but are still engaged with. The value of tutoring comes from individualized attention, so whatever I can do to bring more of that to you or your child's experience is very important to me.

I have tutored and coached for years, and I currently work only on educating students 1:1, so my students are always my number one priority. I will go out of my way to make sure that you or your child is getting the materials and time they need to catch up and excel.

I have a broad background, having studied political science and computer science at the U of M. This gave me exposure to most subjects and I am comfortable with almost anything at the high school level. I especially like working with math, computer science, economics and ACT students.

I have flexible hours and locations. I'm able to meet right from school getting out through the rest of the day. I mainly work in the North-West suburbs but please ask me about other locations.

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.

ACT Science

I scored a 36 on the ACT science section. I have spent significant time perfecting how to convey the many tricks and and skills needed to improve ones score.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked with many students with ADD/ADHD diagnosis both tutoring as well as on the teams I coach. As a child I was diagnosed with ADHD and have taken college classes on strategies for handling ADHD symptoms. I am very understanding of the extra structure that ADHD students need.
