About Diane

I am a life-long language learner fluent in French and currently studying Italian. This is probably my best qualification as I understand the joys and "sorrows" involved in learning a new language. While I was originally certified to teach French in NY secondary schools, I am now certified to teach ESL to adults. Recently retired from full-time work, I have enjoyed classroom teaching on a part-time basis for many years and also have experience tutoring private students.

My former students have included business men and women recently relocated to the States, medical and science students interested in obtaining licenses to practice their professions here in America, and foreign-born parents of children now fluent in English.

I love languages and, as a student of language myself, I understand how much courage it takes to "stumble" through a new language. I am well traveled and enjoy learning about different cultures and traditions. I am a native New Yorker and know the City well.

Explore the City while learning English with a native New Yorker. Free introductory lesson. Group lessons available.

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.

Business

My work history spans 40+ years of corporate and independent assignments in the fields of finance and marketing. I have developed an ABC (American Business Curriculum) for speakers of foreign languages who have relocated to the U.S.

The course consists of an overview of American business culture, and current business developments here and abroad and business vocabulary building.
