I am a Retired Cert.Teacher who specializes in Special Education, Basic French & Spanish, Pre-Algebra, Reading, Language Arts, Test Preparation and Study Skills. In addition, I have B.S. in Psychology, A.A. in Sociology, and an A.S. in Dietetics. I have taught both General Ed and Special Needs (inclusive and resource) students, Elementary to High School level, as well as gifted students in a public school system.

The techniques I use in tutoring are very basic. First determine how the student learns: Is it through kinesthetic, auditory or visual instruction? Does the student use flash cards for general memorization or does he/she need verbal repetition (auditory) for results? Your child's learning style must be determined first for maximum results, and this is what I do that sets me apart from other teaching styles.

ESL/ESOL

I have taken ESOL courses to broaden my teaching experience and have since worked with ESOL students in the classroom. I have also tutored Elementary French and Spanish, and have traveled extensively, which gives me global perspective when working with students where English is a second language.

Spanish

As an Honor Student in Spanish on the West Coast, I started my teaching career straight out of high school as a Bi-lingual Parapro. Years later, I became certified as a Special Ed teacher but have tutored primary-level Spanish for several years. If you need help with basic Spanish, simple verb conjugation, general conversation and vocabulary, I can help you!

My post-certification in both Florida & Georgia is in Special Ed Consultative, which means I've worked predominantly with SpEd students who are mainstreamed into the classroom. These are children who generally have ADD, ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, etc. --not students who have severe or profound disabilities. I have also assisted and taught Reading and phonics in elementary through high school levels and have tutored with Wyzant for over 7 years. I am currently retired from teaching in public schools.
Study Skills

I can tutor children of all ages to help them with standardized tests such as the CRCT's. Gateway's, etc. I can also tutor older children and adults as well, so if you are preparing for a college entrance exam, need to write an essay, a resume, or pass an ASVAB test, let me know, and I can help! Successful testing and writing skills requires specific strategies to be effective and pass, whether you are a child or an adult.

Remarkable Progress

She has been the best in helping my grandson in his reading. She has made remarkable progress in this and my grandson looks forward to seeing her the 2 times a week that he does. She is very patient with him and works well with. She is the best.

Barbara , 11 lessons with Diana

EXCELLENT tutor!!

Ms. Diana is absolutely wonderful! Prior to our son starting the tutoring program with Ms. Diana he was struggling with reading. After 4 lessons he is now reading at least one book at his level to us every night! I can't imagine what he can do after the 7th session. Ms. Diana is very knowledgeable and she is extremely patient. We are forever grateful to have found her and for all her help!!

Nina, 7 lessons with Diana

Very Patient!!

Diana is absolutely wonderful. She's been tutoring my son for almost a year now. I don't know how she keeps her cool with my son who has ADD and high-functioning autism. He can give her such a hard time and argue with her but Diana is as calm as can be. My son's grades improved last year from having C's to all A's and B's and being on the honor roll! Diana is so understanding and has a wonderful personality. She's passionate about what she does.
