About Diana

Hello!

I'm originally from Westchester, NY, and I currently live in Astoria, New York, but I've lived all over the country AND all over the world. One thing that I've done everywhere I've lived has been tutoring – originally it was only ESL, but I started branching out, and I now teach various levels of math, GRE and SAT, as well as general help for special needs students.

When I'm not tutoring, I'm a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. Freelance work is great because it allows for a flexible schedule – both regarding time and workload. I've worked with adults and children of all ages and levels, and have taught in group and individual environments.

Send me a message, and we can see if I'm a good match for you or your child!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a year and a half of experience teacher ESL full-time in South Korea. I taught and tutored students from age 10 to adults.

IELTS

I have four years of experience tutoring English as a Foreign Language (EFL/ESL). Some of those students have been preparing for the IELTS. These students have improved their scores dramatically. I also have an undergraduate degree in linguistics, which gives me an edge over those who have a less objective approach to the subject.

Phonics

I have a degree from the University of Chicago in linguistics where I took in-depth courses on phonetics and phonology. I also taught English in South Korea for a year and a half where I taught conversational English as well as pronunciation (phonics).

Great match!

My daughter truly enjoyed her session with Diana. They work together very well and Diana came prepared to work by asking in advance what topics my daughter was studying. We look forward to future sessions with Diana!
