Experienced pre-service teacher here to help your child improve in school: math, reading comprehension, literacy, writing, social studies, science

Hello. I am an Elementary School education credential student at CSUN. (I earned my BA at UCLA.) I'm one semester away from having a class of my own, and until that time, I would like to use my experience to help your child age 5 through 12 to achieve their highest potential in school. I make learning fun through games and humor. I'm also happy to guide your child through their assignments. My goal is to help your child learn the skills that homework should be helping them practice; I will never just give them the answer.

I charge a travel fee for all lessons taught outside the San Fernando Valley and more than 10 miles from my location, as well as for pick-up/drop-off services. Rates are for one child. Additional children are $10 each per hour.

I teach homework help, academic tutoring, reading, academic english, afterschool pick-up & baby-sitting. Lessons are available for the following levels: primary school, junior high / middle school
I give lessons in person at the student's home.
I give lessons by webcam.

Diana's Experience

I have been professionally tutoring children for the past 3 school years. I also have one year of classroom experience as a student teacher, and I know how to make sense of common core. For the past two summers, I worked at a tutoring center for children with learning disabilities, and I am confident in my ability to improve a child's fluency, reading comprehension, and math skills by multiple grade levels (I have two dozen students who have shown such improvements).
