About Diane

I am a marketing communications professional with a Bachelor's of Science in Journalism and a Master's of Science in Secondary Education English. My core strengths are the ability to teach non-native speakers how to write and speak in appropriate business English "style."

I've worked in marketing for several large tech companies, and I have been trained during these corporate assignments how to write on-line content, create strategic messages and post appropriate social media content.
I also taught English in New York and Connecticut to students with backgrounds in seven different languages.

I studied Shakespeare in London at the Globe Theatre. Last summer, I joined a dozen Anglos at a retreat in Spain, and we worked with a dozen Spanish professionals (engineers, lawyers etc.) to perfect their business English skills.

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.

Public Speaking

My undergraduate degree in journalism included a course, Fundamentals of Broadcasting, which provided training for public speaking engagements. I applied the course content to my assignments at Ketchum, a global marketing and public relations agency, and I worked on the Ketchum Communications Training Team. After Ketchum, I worked as a Communications Manager at IBM, and I prepared IBM executives for public speaking engagements and press interviews. I also studied with Washington University at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London as part of a four week training program in Shakespearean acting techniques.
