Hi! I am a wife and mother of 2, 40 years old, currently working Full Time in HR. I have 16 years experience in Executive Management and 3 degrees: an Associate's in Psychology and American Sign Language Interpreting, as well as a BSW from Temple University with honors.
I am looking to tutor students either in ASL, or in all basic subjects through ASL. I can work with Deaf/Blind as well through tactile sign.
Perhaps your D/deaf and or Hard of Hearing child needs a little one on one in their own language! I worked with Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, Milestones, Inc., Bethany Christian Services, and did an extensive study in Deaf Culture at Temple University and currently work for the Philadelphia Mental Health Center.
Please feel free to ask for references!! I can work with some families on discounted sessions and don't forget that WyzAnt helps too if you purchase time in blocks. Hi!

Dianna K. is a wonderful tutor. She helped me improve so much in ASL. I have been interested in ASL for a while now and with Dianna's help, I have fallen in love with the language even more. I love the creative ways that she has taught me, such as packing for a trip to the park or making jello. I loved having her as my first ASL tutor/teacher. Thank you so much for the help and I really hope to start up with lessons again soon.
THANK YOU BELLA! That was so kind of you! I truly loved working together!!
I have had the pleasure of working with Dianna for a few months now and she not only is an excellent tutor, she inspires me to pursue ASL more and more. What started off as an interest or hobby has now turned into a lifestyle and a passion and this is all thanks to the amazing talent of Dianna. She is patient, kind and insanely intelligent, not just in the fluency of ASL but also the culture. Dianna is warm and welcoming and always makes you feel at home during a session. She puts her heart and soul into each session and is always so prepared that you think you are her only student! She is awesome and I look forward to continuing our sessions!
Dianna is bright, cheerful, energetic and very patient. Her tutoring was very helpful! Dianna really knows sign language and the Deaf culture. She has such a wonderful positive attitude. I felt very comfortable from the start. I learned so much by having her help me. I got better results in ASL class because of her help. I highly recommend her as an ASL tutor. Thank you!
Dianna K. is everything we were looking for in a tutor for our daughter. First of all, she instilled confidence in her that was lacking. She is extremely knowledgeable in all subject matter. Our daughter has a learning disability and Dianna K. brought her along at a perfect pace. She is extremely patient and extraordinarily upbeat. Our daughter is very comfortable with Dianna K. We are lucky to have her to tutor our daughter. If you are looking for someone who truly cares and want good results,do not hesitate to contact Dianna K.
Thank you so much Mr. C!! That really means a great deal to me. I think your daughter is a wonderful person, full of knowledge and light; she can teach all of us a thing or two. I appreciate your comments so much more than you know. I'm honored to be able to tutor her and I'm really excited for her to take this test! She can do it!
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.
I am a Psychology major from BCCC. I have had some teaching experience with ADD/ADHD/ODD at Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. I have also had personal experience with homeschooling my little brother with ADHD diagnosed in 1985. I'd like the opportunity to apply all of my other areas of expertise to these types of situations so that we both can improve our abilities working together.
I have been working in business for nearly 20 years, the last five of those being in Executive Management. I have trained many employees in those years, bringing several from file clerks to Regional Managers. I have three college degrees and excel at writing resumes.
I am able to help any applicant turn their outdated resumes that are not getting any attention, into resumes that impress hiring personnel. I have been doing this kind of work freelance recently for about 20 people who have at some point thereafter been offered jobs in the careers of their choice. I was volunteering at the PA Career Link Office since most of the staff was unable to offer this kind of in depth help.
I have a very broad base knowledge of the fundamentals for Elementary level subjects, including English, Reading, Writing, Basic Math,and Science. I remain fairly fresh in these topics while teaching D/deaf adults in a night class. Aside from helping my own children, neices and nephews, through K-6th, I've tutored 2 of their friends in Kindergarten.
I am an American Sign Language Interpreter with a vast amount of knowledge of the deaf community and deaf culture. I have a one-year-old with hearing loss bilaterally. I have been involved with ASL/D/deaf community for 12 years.
I began using MS Access in the mid-nineties. Using a relational database framework enabled myself and a team of designers to build software packages for the complex needs of the IOM industry.
I have been MS Windows user since its very beginning through Vista XP & HP. I've used it at home and in business for over 16 years. I can help construct an entire computerized system for someone new to Windows, based on their current and future needs. Through discussion and anticipation, I can develop a Windows profile that will suit their needs to enter the digital world. Knowing directories and pathways are essential to this configuration and that often the piece most misunderstood by those learning MS Windows for the first time.
I graduated an Interpreter Training Program in 2003, and have been involved with the D/deaf community ever since. I have tutored adults in English as a second language, taught children many elementary subjects THROUGH American Sign Language, as well as having been a classroom Interpreter. I also have published a D/deaf culture study with Dr Colon at Temple University, have an extensive background in ASL/Deaf culture/Deaf Education, and have been recently accepted on full scholarship to a university program for a Master's Degree in Deaf Education 2016.
I am currently pursuing my Master's Degree (M.Ed) in Deaf Education, I have a Bachelors degree from Temple University in Social Work (BSW), and an Associates degree (AS) from Bucks County Community College in Psychology. I've worked at Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, Creative Access, Pah-tners, Milestones, Inc., (all organizations related to Deafness/Deaf Culture or behavioral health for children and adults). I have worked for Bucks County Intermediate Unit and I currently work for PMHC, the Philadelphia Mental Health Clinic. I also have worked with families in the adoption/foster care system. My baby boy also has special needs so I have serious, solid "mom/nurse/advocate/therapist" experience ;)
While working on my BSW, I tutored many fellow classmates. I volunteered where "available tutors" were apt to be found doing their own homework. We would write our name and specialty on a paper next to us and students would pull up a chair to get a little extra help. It was a huge burden off the teachers and the students loved it; being how difficult scheduling tutor time could be. With 3 college degrees, 3.8, 3.9, 4.0 with honors - I KNOW how to study. The trick is finding what works for each student. All of my life experience in business, psychology and working with special needs assures I'll find what works!
