About Diana

I've worked with special education, gifted, and ESL students. I've taught test prep, social studies/literacy, preschool and 3rd grade as a long-term substitute teacher. I've also tutored college students as well as a student that was suspended from school. I take playback theater classes and often teach improvisational acting skills to my students. I've been in 7 films and even a Blondie music video. I am also a writer, and I've written poems, short stories, digital stories, commercials, monologues, and scripts.

I make learning fun and interesting. I believe children sometimes need someone to motivate them to learn by bringing out their talents and incorporating them into creative lessons.

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.

ADHD

I have a Master's Degree in Special Education. I am certified to teach students with disabilities grades 1-6. I've tutored students with ADD, and mental retardation. I've taught students with other disabilities as a Substitute Teacher.

Dyslexia

I tutored a middle school child who was dyslexic. I helped him with phonics, writing, and grammar. After only a few months, he improved by 1 grade level. I am certified in Special Education grades 1-6.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in Pr-K through 6th grade Elementary and Special Education 1-6. I have a masters degree plus 36 credits. I've worked in elementary schools in the Hudson Valley and in New York City. Sometimes, I teach in bilingual (Spanish) classrooms. I've worked in regular, self-contained, resource, and inclusion type classrooms as well.

Phonics

I've taught from a reading series that is part of the Reading First initiative. I've also used Harcourt and McMillan programs and been a substitute teacher a few times in a Reading Recovery program.

Special Needs

I am certified in Special Education for grades 1-6. I've tutored children with special needs in Reading. I've worked with various students who have learning disabilities.

Study Skills

I was a tutor for two college students at one point. I helped students with learning disabilities study for tests, write essays, and research topics. I prepared students for state exams by having them review questions, take notes, and underline important information. I gave practice spelling quizzes to classes. During my student teaching, I had students write their own questions to study from the textbook.

Theater

I have been studying Playback Theater for the past 4 years. I study and attend classes every weekend. I learn games, techniques, and how to interact with other actors on stage.

Video Production

I majored in Mass Communications with a concentration in T.V. Production in college. I've had three internships. One was for PBS, the other NBC Cable, and I interned for an independent film. I was part of the television club in college.
