"We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself."

-Lloyd Alexander

First, Wyzant is filled with exceptional tutors so it's pretty tough to go wrong on here! The art of tutoring is as diverse and unique as the individuals who undertake it. I know tutors who are subject area experts, able to effortlessly and expertly assist students in a select few areas. On the other hand you have tutors that are good at a variety of subjects yet master none. Some value a personal connection with students, others prefer to maintain a professional distance. My reason for writing this? It's crucial that as a student or parent of a student you select a person with the style that works best for you!

My name is Dyane and I consider myself an excellent and unorthodox tutor. My style? Whatever works for the student! I pride myself on the my ability to adjust my tutoring style into a format that my students will understand. Some students perform better when they understand the concept. Some students may respond favorably to a lecture style format. Others need more visual aids in order to commit information to memory. I'm extremely personable and believe that this greatly contributes to the efficacy of my tutoring. In order to find the best style for the student, I need to understand the student themselves, what makes them tick and what motivates them. My passion for helping others fuels my desire to tutor.

I've tutored both formally (for UNLV's Academic Success Center and Super Tutors) and informally (private tutoring and family) for over 7 years. I've tutored a wide variety of subjects and I'm just as adept tutoring Middle School Math as I am Organic Chemistry II. I have extensive experience tutoring students for the ASVAB, GED, College Algebra I and II, Geometry, and General Chemistry (121 and 122). I have a strong science background and enjoy tutoring General Biology, Organic Chemistry I, etc. Recently I've tutored students for the TOEFL exam and I thoroughly enjoy it as well.

Again you really can't go wrong on here, these tutors are fantastic. I'm unique in that I work very hard. I'll make certain to give you work in between our sessions to reinforce the topics we covered and encourage retention of that knowledge. I'm almost always available for questions through email and I make certain to respond as soon as possible. If you have any more questions for me, please feel free to contact me and I'll be sure to get back to your right away!

Thanks for your time and Good Luck!

Study Skills

I have experience teaching and cultivating study skills. I'm able to adapt and find the best study method that works for each individual student as well. Methods differ between subjects as well and I'm great at finding ways to help people retain information that best suits their learning style. When I worked in the UNLV tutoring center, I worked with many student athletes that had erratic or nonexistent study skills, which was the primary reason they weren't able to retain the information rather than a simple inability to understand it.

Chemistry is the first science I tutored students in and my original major in College.(I would go on to minor in it). I'm highly skilled in regular, honors, and AP Chemistry for high school students. For college students, I'm able to skillfully tutor General Chemistry 1 and 2 as well as Organic Chemistry 1 and 2. I tutor Microbiology and Biochemistry on a case by case basis so please ask if you're interested in these subjects in particular.

College Counseling

College Counseling is absolutely crucial for parents wise enough to seek this out for their children. I've counseled 8 students now through the college application process and they've been accepted to universities such as UNLV, UNR, San Diego State, Oregon State, University of Oregon, and Marquette University. I've also helped students with the scholarship process, which is both extensive and intensive.

GED

I sincerely enjoy tutoring students for the GED, as it's one of the first subjects I started tutoring. I love the challenge of preparing non-traditional students as this is one of the few subjects that requires constant shifting of tutoring styles to find a perfect medium for both tutor and student. I've successfully tutored many students in their GED pursuits as well. As long as the student arrives prepared, committed each session I promise to give 110% to help you succeed.

Test Preparation

ASVAB,

ASVAB

I've helped several students ace the ASVAB test, particularly the Math section. I believe in working with harder Math material so that the actual test will be much more manageable. My students have all achieved above the minimum AFQT score for their respective military branch, which is crucial now that the military has become more selective. Achieving the minimum score may result in delays as applicants with much higher scores will be given preference.

I have experience helping regents students pass their proficiency tests. I've successfully tutored students for the Science and Math portions of the proficiency. I also achieved high scores on the NV proficiency myself as a CCSD student.
TEAS,

TEAS

I have the necessary background to successfully help students succeed on the TEAS! I've taken the MCAT exam twice (received a 23 the first attempt and a 29 on the second attempt) and there is a strong correlation between the 2 tests. MCAT verbal section is extremely challenging, mirroring the reading and paragraph comprehension as well as the English section on the TEAS. MCAT Physical and Biological sciences also mirrors the Science section on the TEAS. I've tutored Math up to Calculus I, so I'm definitely prepared to tutor the TEAS math section. Lastly, I've helped a TEAS student before as she needed a certain score to enter the nursing program at CSN(I believe it was 80% in reading and 60% in the other sections)

Exactly what was described in his profile...

Dyane came in with a positive outlook and used every minute of the hour efficiently. Natalia was very happy with his style of tutoring and even after only the 1st lesson the next day she got a B+ on her Math test. I'm looking forward to Dyane working on other subjects with Natalia.

Great Asvab Tutor!

Great asvab tutor teaches me ways to study for the asvab and to improve and talked about my personal issues that i may have that will help me towards the real asvab.

Christopher, 2 lessons with Dyane

Patient, encouraging, and makes learning fun

Our 14 year old was really struggling with math and bio and got 100% on his algebra test after one session with Dyane! Dyane is incredibly knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. He really took the time to get to know our son and his learning style in order to best help him.

Andrea, 2 lessons with Dyane

VERY INFORMATIVE AND PATIENT TUTOR!

Bio 189 is the hardest class I've ever taken, and I finally decided to do some research and find help. I'm so happy that I came across Duyane's profile! He had great ratings and I decided to take a chance. After our first session, I knew he was the right tutor for me! I was struggling in my class, getting D's on all of my exams. I met with Duyane 1-2 times a week, and when my next exam came around, I scored 10 points higher than I had been before that. I'm 100% sure that Duyane played a role in that! I wish I had met him sooner because I'm sure I would be an A but I'm happy he could help when he did!

Patient and Understanding

Dyane was a great help to me. I was 6 weeks behind in my course when I hired him. In 2 weeks he helped me complete everything in time for the end of the semester and get a high grade. He understood exactly what kind of help I needed right away. Money well spent.

Heather, 6 lessons with Dyane

Patient and Knowledgeable

It is best to give him a head notice on topics you want to cover. He will bring multiple applications to understand the material at hand. I loved that he was prepared and ready to answer questions I needed answered.

Alicia, 1 lesson with Dyane

Great help!

Dyane helped my daughter complete her college entrance essays. He was very helpful and we will definitely use his services in the future if needed. And since she's already receiving college acceptance letters I would say her essays are playing a role in such fast acceptance responses.

Awesome Tutor

I like how he is patient with my son and how they hit it off. They get along great and can talk about a lot of subjects. I like that they understand each other and my son is willing to learn from Dyane. He is helping my son not only with his Algebra II, but also his confidence with all his other subjects.
