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!

My rate is the same for groups and all subjects!
I am preparing for the Air Force Officer Qualifying Tesf (AFOQT) and I needed to freshen up my math skills with word problems, arithmetic reasoning and math knowledge. It has been a while since I graduated college so I needed a tutor. I came across Dyane and decided to book him for 2 days. It was a short amount of time but it was worth every dollar. He takes time to get to know his student and see where their strengths and weaknesses are. He shows different techniques to coming to a solution to the problem and then allows the student to pick what works for them best and which would better allow them to retain what they learned. Really patient and knows the material especially taught me couple of tricks on how to solve the problem faster and much efficient as each section of the test you're being timed like the SATs or ASVAB. Thank you Dyane!
Dyane was very patient when over terms I was having a hard time understand. Made it much easier to understand
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Dyane was a great tutor. He found out what I had trouble with and we went over and cleared the concepts I was having trouble with! He's a great tutor!
Dyane helped me tremendously. I came in with an open minded and Dyane set me at ease. Broke down the problems and made it easier to understand. I will use Dyane again and I recommend anyone needing help let Dyane help you.
Dyane has been tutoring one of our International students in the SAT reading/writing portion and each time he's come back, he tells me he's learned so much and that he enjoys Dyane's teaching. Very willing, great to communicate with. Highly recommend.
We have had several sessions with Dyane - he quickly and efficiently prepared my son for his final exam. Is is a fantastic tutor. Would recommend him to anyone.
Dyane worked with my daughter in her audition project for Las Vegas Academy. He offered to put in extra sessions leading up to the audition. We appreciated his enthusiasm and investment.
Dyane has been helping me in preparation for taking the TEAS V exam. He is quite knowledgeable of ALL the material. I am looking forward to further help in understanding the material.
Dyane is a great math tutor. He identifies where the learner is having trouble and he explains concepts well. We recommend that you give him a try!!
My daughter is extremely grateful for the the time she spent with Dyane. His tutoring skills are over the top. Dyane helped her with algebra 2 honors. We WILL be meeting with him again. His skills in teaching are a "10"!!!
I would recommend Dyane to anyone that is preparing for the TEAS exam. He has a very unique teaching style that makes it easy to understand. He takes his time to make sure you understand the material. He also writes practice problems to make sure you understand it. He would also quiz you at the end of each subject. Dyane is very patient and professional. Lastly, Dyane is always available when ever you need him. He does what ever it takes to help you. With Dyane’s help, I passed my TEAS Exam!
Dyane, is great knowledgeable tutor. He really cares, and genuinely wants to see you succeed. He went above and beyond to help me and accommodate my situation. Highly recommended!
I like the fact that Dyane went out his way to make sure I understood all the material in my course
I had a few tutoring sessions with Dyane for my Core Math Praxis Exam. He is an excellent tutor and I highly recommend him. There were many topics that I literally have not seen in over 20 years! Dyane has a very good way of working through problems with the student together and on their own and explains things in a way that is easy to learn. I went up 20 points from my last exam and passed the Praxis. I would recommend him to anyone I know in need of a Math tutor.
I do highly recommend Dyane for being the best Tutor. My son has improved in his Math- Algebra 1. His getting A's now. Good job Dyane.
My son really likes you and not only learns but has fun, what else can we ask for? Thank you.
Dyane has been working with my daughter for a very short time, but I can already see an improvement in her attitude towards math. She says he is extremely easy to understand because he explains things in everyday language. This is my daughter's 4th tutor in three years but the first tutor that seems to be getting through to her. We have a very tough schedule to work around and Dyane has kept up with flying colors! Thanks Dyane!
It is been great to work with Dyane, he really helped us to improve our English, he is very fun and nice. I absolutely recommend him!
Dyane helped me get a head start for my Organic Chemistry class. He is very accessible and easy to work with. His teaching seems adaptable to various learning styles. I have learned a lot within the few weeks we had together. If I ever need to be tutored again, I know who to ask.
My daughter said so far so good. She is learning more than she could learn in school right now.
Update: Dyane has tutored my daughter faithfully and patiently for over four weeks now. As a results of his wonderful tutoring, my daughter has pass her Geometry and Chemistry class in only a short period of time. I highly recommend Dyane if you really want good results and great success! Thanks again Dyane for all your help.
We found Dyane to be a great tutor. He was very creative when presenting examples in a manner that was interesting and on a level that my nephew could relate. His methods were memorable enough that my nephew learned how to complete the problems and he remembered the formulas better.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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)
