About Dianala

Greetings!

According to Hunt, Touzel, and Wiseman (1999), “teachers ultimately determine the quality of schooling that students receive” (p. 3).

I am a dynamic educator with comprehensive knowledge and experience in the education and business fields, providing me with broad teaching and learning perspectives valuable in helping students achieve their educational goals. I have extensive experience mentoring and helping students develop research, writing, critical and creative thinking skills, as well as to establish goals and determine plans for action in both online and face-to-face formats. I am a strong oral and written communicator, with demonstrated cultural competency skills and Spanish language fluency, ready to help you with study skills, transition to college and university studies, elementary and middle school math, Spanish, ESL/ESOL, TOEFL, reading, and writing, including attention to content, writing mechanics and implementation of APA Style. I am approved to tutor 15 subjects.

One of my goals for each tutoring session is to go over the objectives of the lesson. At the end of the lesson, we revisit what was covered before I assign homework. Correspondingly, I provide periodic formative and summative assessments of student learning.

I am generally available for tutoring every day and online platforms facilitate tutoring even further. My base rate is $45/hour and I offer discounts for package lessons--contact me for more details.

While I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I understand that emergencies happen and I offer lesson makeup to ensure you stay on track. Overall, I am committed to a collaborative approach to scholarship and the need to create quality, energetic learning environments, to help successfully continue a sense of community that validates and celebrates learning.

Looking forward to working with you...all the best,
Dr. D.
