About Diane

I am extremely interested in teaching piano. I have played piano for over 30 years and also play the organ. I am an organist in a local parish. Additionally, I fill in as organist for funerals, weddings, and other services and liturgies. I have, in the past, had beginning and intermediate piano students and have greatly enjoyed imparting my musical knowledge to them.

I am also an accomplished teacher possessing a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, as well as a Masters degree in Elementary Math. I recently retired after 31 years of service in a public school in Western PA where I taught third grade. I also have experience in both second and fourth grades. I was also involved in the Title 1 Math program when it existed. In addition, I have been listed in Who's Who Among American Teachers several times.

I enjoy tutoring because it keeps me involved with imparting knowledge to kids. I use games, mnemonic devices, and many other learning strategies to help kids remember and retain information.

My hobbies and interests include reading, music (I am in the Westmoreland Choral Society as well as a church choir), puzzles, cardmaking, and other crafts.

I look forward to hearing from you and possibly working with your child.
