I have been an English scholar from the day I first began to read. I believe that literacy, the ability to read and write, is at the heart of what makes a person educated. What I love most about teaching is sharing my love of the English language and helping students learn to express themselves more effectively. I have many techniques and creative ways of approaching the study of reading and writing, so I can find a way to reach any student. I believe that we all have a voice, and my goal is to help students find theirs. I have been an English scholar from the day I first began to read.

I was looking for a tutor for my 17 year old daughter in order to strengthen and provide additional skills in Reading, Vocabulary and Writing 4 weeks before her scheduled SAT test. She had taken the test previously and was just blown away with those sections of the test. Diane had all the qualifications I was looking for and came to our first meeting very open to suggestions but with a clear strategy in mind. We quickly got on the same page and came up with a tentative plan agreeing to adjust as we went along. Diane and my daughter were off to a solid start the very first session. The lessons were built not only around building skill but also confidence, which she needed badly. My daughter was absolutely more prepared and more confident going into the test and felt really good about having done well. Diane was flexible and we were easily able to schedule around her busy schedule. We are both confident the results of the test will match our endorsement of Diane. We will post again in 2 weeks when they are in.
Thank you Diane you were Great!
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 have a Master's degree in English, and love helping students appreciate and understand literature. I have developed many ways to teach different learners and can make the experience enjoyable for the student, as well.
I have worked as an editor and proofreader, as well as a writer. I can help people learn to proofread their own work, as well as writing by others. In addition, I can help students become capable editors, improving writing on several levels.
I have always had excellent reading comprehension, and can help students increase their own reading comprehension, too. Since all students learn differently, I have developed many methods for helping students learn.
