About Dianne

Hello, my name is Dianne and I'm a 21 year old college student at UH Manoa. I recently graduated with my Associate's Degree from Leeward Community College on May 15, 2015.

From my profile, it isn't that apparent that I've been teaching and tutoring for over 5 years, but I've been teaching or tutoring students of some sort since I was in high school. I have always loved helping people and finding ways to make things easier for other people to remember and that's what I do with English and Korean, among other things. Once I learn something new and understand it, I try to figure out ways to make it easier for others to understand it as well.

Recently I have been working really hard tutoring students (both English speaking and non-English speaking) and learning better ways to make English and Korean easier to learn. Also I have been working a lot with editing (of papers, projects, and resumes) and public speaking, so I can help people make great speeches and build confidence in their speaking abilities. My background in drama, theatre, and MCing also helps me with this.

In high school I was in AP English (both AP Literature and AP Composition) and tutored students in both my AP class and regular English class. I also took literature classes in college to keep my skills up for analysis and interpretation. In my community college (Leeward) I was a conversation group leader for the English Language Institute (ELI) for 2 years and I also did private English tutoring for the students. I also did some tutoring for some of my friends who live Korea and helped them prepare for their TOEFL and TOEIC exams. Also I have helped many ESL/ELI students prepare resumes for jobs, prepare their speaking skills for job interviews, and helped them learn how to write essays. I can also provide the same skills for English speaking students as well

I have been learning Korean language and culture for over 2 years. I'm one of the top students in my class and my major. I spend every moment I can trying to learn and expand my knowledge of Korean. I spend lots of extra time with various different teachers asking questions to bridge the gap between Korean and English and I tutor various classmates and co-taught my Korean class in the SPR2015 semester with my teacher.

I know learning languages can be hard, but after tutoring so many students and learning language myself, I can make your language the easiest subject there is. I have tips and tricks to make things that seem difficult, easy as pie. And I have the time and patience to work with anyone.

I am very pleased with her patience and the encouragement she provided to my daughter. We had some minor technical difficulties on both ends; however they were worked out. My daughter is excited to meet Dianne in person for their next lesson.
