About Dianne


Bio

I have had 20 years experience teaching math,history and science in the Virginia Public School System. I love teaching and learning new things. I am currently working as a Clinical Medical Assistant and available evenings and weekends to work with students. I believe that learning takes place when the student is actively engaged and I strive to make interesting lessons so that the student will be participating and involved in their own education.

I have had 20 years experience teaching math,history and science in the Virginia Public School System. I love teaching and learning new things. I am currently working as a Clinical Medical Assistant and available evenings and weekends to work with students. I believe that learning takes place when the student is actively engaged and I strive to make interesting lessons so that the student will be participating and involved in their own education.
Quality and Quantity are two important elements in the mastery of any subject. A math curriculum that is 5 miles wide and 1/8 inch thick does not provide a strong foundation for further inquiry. If a student is to be successful, there must be a deep base of core knowledge that provides confidence and the incentive to build upon it.
Frequent feedback is also an important component of a student's continued interest in any subject.

Knowledgeable and compassionate tutor

My daughter who is normally a straight A student, has been struggling with geometry all year. After only one week (and 2 sessions with Dianne) her practice SOL in class went from a 34% to a 74:%! I have every confidence she will pass her geometry SOLs on Friday with flying colors. Thank you Dianne!!

Kim, 5 lessons with Dianne

Relatable and Knowledgeable

Did a great job helping to clarify process of factoring polynomials and also started some general SOL prep. My middle school son asked to keep up weekly sessions. That is saying a LOT

Noah, 7 lessons with Dianne

Great tutor! She is patient and does a great job explaining the concepts! Highly recommend her!

Great Tutor! Dianne is patient, knowledgeable and very professional. Her tutoring has helped my daughter understand Algebra 2 and she teaches in a way that inspires confidence. About her time with Dianne, my daughter has the same comment every week -- "this was the best session ever!" I highly recommend her services!
