About Diwata

I am a driven and committed working professional offering high quality tutoring services. I have implemented a college readiness curriculum and managed programs for high school students and professional adult mentors involved in a nation-wide mentoring program preparing high school students for college success. Prior to this, I worked extensively as an academic case manager assisting students in accomplishing their academic, personal and professional goals and achieving their high school diplomas. Throughout the years I have worked with elementary, high school and college students, as well as adults, to produce quality results in areas of their choosing. Whether you need help with writing or conversational skills, public speaking or written projects, class assignments or work projects, you can count on my ability to help you succeed and produce quality work! With a Bachelor of Arts in English graduating with honors, I have extensive experience in writing, language arts, conversational skills and literature, but I also have experience tutoring in other areas, including the humanities, social sciences and mathematics. I have also studied business writing and am confident in assisting you with any professional writing. As an undergraduate, I was a member of several honor societies at my university, including a national English honor society.

In the past, I have worked one-on-one with a diverse range of students, including elementary, middle school, high school and college students, as well as adult international students. Moreover, I have vast teaching experience, having served as a children's instructor for the American Red Cross in Greater New York, leading educational presentations for children city-wide. I have taught English internationally, helping students in Peru, Thailand and Costa Rica learn English. Furthermore, I have taught adults from a variety of countries, helping them improve their comprehension, writing and speaking skills.

I believe in catering to my students' specific needs and adhering to their personal preferences. When I tutor, I completely focus on my student's needs and highly value his or her opinions, placing their preferences and goals as my utmost priority. I see tutoring as a selfless act, one in which I completely comply with my student's wishes and goals. As your tutor, I will serve you as you most need and want. I believe in serving each student as thoroughly as possible with as much quality as possible. Moreover, I aim to teach in a manner that best suits each student's unique personality. I would be more than happy to do everything and anything I can to help you excel!
