About Dianne

I taught second grade in Virginia and first grade in North Carolina at a school of excellence. My parents were both educators and from a very early age I wanted to help others learn. I always received excellent ratings from administrators in both school systems, with my strengths being my high expectations for all students and my personal interest in their specific needs and excellent communication with parents, many of them volunteering in my classroom.

I have retired from teaching after thirty five years and have moved back to the place I grew up-the Shenandoah Valley! Over the years parents and colleagues often asked if I'd like to tutor their children, but my responsibilities in the classroom did not allow time for tutoring. I would like to continue to help children enjoy learning and make a difference in their lives.

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.

Elementary Math

I taught elementary math for 35 years at elementary schools of excellence in Virginia and North Carolina.

Grammar

I taught grammar in elementary schools in Virginia and North Carolina, integrating it into all areas of language arts.

Reading

I taught many reading programs in varying elementary grades over the years, using formal reading programs and integrating my own strategies to make reading relevant and fun.

Spelling

I love to teach spelling, using many games to make learning words easier and fun!

Vocabulary

Vocabulary words and meanings change over the years, we use the old fashion dictionary along with the web to discover meanings to words. We also need to practice the use of vocabulary correctly in sentences and stories, not just the vocabulary words and meanings in isolation.
