About Diana

Hello!

I'm originally from New York, and I currently live in 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. 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).
