About Diana

I have 5 years experience teaching high school mathematics - algebra 1 and geometry - in a classroom setting and held certification to teach mathematics in the State of Virginia from 2007 to 2012. I also have 1 year experience teaching high school chemistry: basic chemistry, honors chemistry and senior level chemistry 2. I have worked as a private tutor for the past 2 years, tutoring homeschooling and regular-schooled students from grade school through high school mathematics (pre-algebra to algebra 2), chemistry, and test prep (PSAT, SAT, ACT, NJIT entrance exam, PARCC, and Regents). I graduated from MIT with a bachelor's degree in civil engineering and also worked 3 years as a civil engineer (inspecting bridges, designing databases, and doing some AutoCAD design work). Students (and parents) frequently report a great improvement in understanding, proficiency, and enjoyment of math and science after working with me.

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 Math

I have taught algebra 1 for three years and geometry for five years - two of the main subjects on the ACT test. I have also tutored algebra 2, pre-calculus, and SAT prep since the spring. I have just started tutoring in ACT math prep as well so have some experience there and finally have good test taking and problem solving skills that I share with my students.

ACT Science

My major in college was in civil/environmental engineering so I have a strong background in science. I also taught chemistry for a year and have been tutoring it for the past year and a half. Finally, I have experience successfully completing the science portions of the ACT test.

Algebra 1

I have 3 years experience teaching algebra 1 in a classroom setting. I have also tutored many students in pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, and SAT prep (which involves a good deal of algebra) since this past winter. Finally, I reviewed and retaught many algebra skills with my geometry students during the 5 years that I taught geometry.

Algebra 2

I have tutored algebra 2 and precalculus (which uses much of the same knowledge and skills) this past year and a half. I also taught algebra 1, the prerequisite for algebra 2, for three years.

*I do not tutor for students in algebra 2 classes that use the online book Pearson Algebra 2, Common Core or with any online book *

Chemistry

I taught high school chemistry for 1 year, which included Regular and Honors Chemistry and a Chemistry 2 course for seniors. In college I took several advanced chemistry courses including chemical thermodynamics, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. I also have recently tutored in chemistry.

Geometry

I have five years experience teaching high school geometry. I have also tutored in geometry and in SAT prep (which involves quite a bit of geometry). I have also recently taken a college level geometry class (for my teaching certification).

Prealgebra

Many skills needed in pre-algebra are then used in algebra and geometry. I have 3 years experience teaching algebra 1 and 5 years experience teaching geometry. I also have tutored in pre-algebra and many later math subjects (algebra 1, geometry, algebra 2, advanced math).

PSAT

I have 3 years of algebra teaching experience and 5 years of geometry teaching experience and have been tutoring in these subjects, as well as SAT Math, for the past year and a half. Recently, I have also tutored some students in PSAT Math. I would feel most comfortable helping students with the math portion (and not the English portion).

SAT Math

I have 5 years of experience teaching algebra and geometry - 2 of the main subject areas on the SAT math test. Also, I can teach you good problem solving skills for SAT type questions. Finally, I have already tutored many students in math SAT prep over the past 2+ years and so am very familiar with the questions and the types of problems students have.

SOL

I have three years experience preparing students for the Algebra 1 SOL and five years experience preparing students for the Geometry SOL and I have the same number of years experience teaching those subjects. I have also tutored in algebra 1 and geometry. Finally, I have prepared students for the SAT, which is another standardized test that requires algebra and geometry knowledge.

Great tutor — Diana was instrumental in helping me catch up in both Geometry and Chemistry. As I fell behind in both subjects, I felt I needed to hear a different voice other than that of my teachers to better grasp the material. Diana was the perfect choice. She was prepared, patient and reassuring, which gave me the confidence to move forward. I am very happy I took the chance on getting tutoring help from D ...
