About Diana

I am a retired elementary teacher(K-6) certified as a reading specialist with a concentration in learning disabilities in NC. I am experienced in providing both assessments and differentiated instruction in order for your child to succeed.

As a caring and compassionate educator of young children, I have continued to expand and update my knowledge base to help students to become independent 21st century thinkers and become productive citizens. My past and current students have benefited from my expertise as well. I have structured and re-grouped my instruction based on collection of my students' literacy and math data. This includes collected benchmark data, ongoing assessments with Thinkgate, Dibels, 3D Reading, Raz Kids, Reading Eggs, ABCya.com Four Blocks Program, Word Way, Kathy Richardson (a math instruction and assessment tool), and the Investigations Math curriculum. According to my recent data, 95% of my kindergarten students have mastered all of their uppercase and lower case letters and their matching letter sounds. My students enjoy reading as I do utilize and implement strategies that address even those who struggle due to their frustration with reading levels. Approximately 80% of those students showed significant growth in reading in order to attain the district required grade level proficiency. In closing, it is my opinion that your child will benefit and become more successful in school with my compassionate tutoring instruction. I look forward to supporting your family with the educational needs of your child. I thank you in advance and look forward to working with your family.
