About Diana

I have 6 years experience teaching high school mathematics - algebra 1, algebra 2 and geometry - in a classroom setting and held certification to teach mathematics in the State of Virginia from 2007 to 2012. I also have 2 years experience teaching high school chemistry: basic chemistry, honors chemistry and senior level chemistry 2. I have worked as a private tutor for the past 4 years, tutoring homeschooling and regular-schooled students from grade school through high school mathematics (pre-algebra to precalculus), chemistry, and test prep (PSAT, SAT, ACT, NJIT entrance exam, PARCC, and Regents). I graduated from MIT with a bachelor's degree in civil engineering and also worked 3 years as a civil engineer (inspecting bridges, designing databases, and doing some AutoCAD design work). Students frequently report a great improvement in understanding, proficiency, and enjoyment of math and science after working with me.

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.

ACT Math

I have tutored students in the ACT test - math and science portions - for the past 3 years. In addition, I taught algebra 1 for three years, algebra 2 for one year, and geometry for five years - three of the main subjects on the math portion of the ACT test. I have also tutored in algebra 1 & 2, geometry, pre-calculus, and SAT math prep for the past four years all of which gives me more knowledge and experience to share with my students.

ACT Science

I have tutored students in the math and science portions of the ACT for the past three years. I also taught chemistry for two years and have been tutoring it for the past four years, and taught geology and astronomy each for one semester. My major in college was in civil/environmental engineering so I have a strong background in science.

Algebra 1

I have three years experience teaching algebra 1 in a classroom setting. I have also tutored many students in pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, and SAT prep (which involves a good deal of algebra) over the past four years. Finally, I reviewed and retaught many algebra 1 skills with my geometry students during the five years that I taught geometry.

Algebra 2

I have one year experience teaching algebra 2 in a classroom and have tutored algebra 2 (and precalculus which uses much of the same knowledge and skills) for the past three years. I also taught algebra 1, the prerequisite for algebra 2, for three years and have been tutoring in it for the past four years. I have a good ability to explain the algebra 2 subject matter to students.

Chemistry

I taught high school chemistry for 2 years, which included regular and honors chemistry and a chemistry 2 course for seniors. I also have been tutoring in chemistry for the past four years. My education is in civil and environmental engineering which included a good number of chemistry courses in college.

Geometry

I have five years experience teaching high school geometry. This past year I also taught an algebra 2 class which had an integrated geometry curriculum component. I have tutored many students in geometry over the past four years. Finally, I have tutored many students in SAT and ACT prep both of which include geometry.

Prealgebra

I have five years experience in home schooling and tutoring in prealgebra. Also, since the skills taught in pre-algebra are then used in all later math courses, the six years I have spent teaching algebra 1 & 2 and geometry in a classroom and the four years I have spent tutoring those subjects have also contributed to my knowledge and ability to explain the concepts.

Precalculus

I have tutored precalculus for the past two years. Much of the material in precalculus is also covered (but in less depth) in algebra 2 - and I have tutored a good number of students in algebra 2 over the past three years. I seem to have a good ability to explain harder concepts in a way that makes sense.

PSAT

I have four years experience in tutoring students on math portion of the SAT and PSAT. The PSAT math section is the same material as the SAT math section minus some of the more advanced math concepts. I also have three years of algebra teaching experience, one year of algebra 2 teaching experience, and five years of geometry teaching experience and have been tutoring in these subjects for the past four years. I am available to help students with the math portion of the PSAT only.

SAT Math

I have tutored many students in math SAT prep (and math PSAT prep) over the past 4+ years. At this point, I am very familiar with the questions and the types of problems students have. I also have 6 years of experience teaching algebra 1, algebra 2 and geometry - 3 of the main subject areas on the SAT math test - and have been tutoring in algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and other material that is on the SAT math test for the past 4+ years.

SOL

I have three years experience preparing students for the Algebra 1 SOL and five years experience preparing students for the Geometry SOL and I have the same number of years experience teaching those subjects. I have also tutored in algebra 1 and geometry for the past four years. Finally, I have prepared many students for the SAT/PSAT over the past four years, which is another standardized test that requires algebra and geometry knowledge.
