Diane has quickly helped to ease my daughters math anxiety and has helped her believe that she can excel in a subject that has in past years been very difficult. Diane makes sure that my daughter understands the concepts presented and answers her questions without making her feel incompetent or embarrassed. She praises my daughter for the concepts that she does understand and explains things that she does not understand patiently as many times and in as many ways as necessary in order for my daughter to grasp it. We are glad to have found Diane on WyzAnt and with her help look forward to a successful school year.

Joyce is a very patient tutor with my son who struggles with dyslexia. In just a few lessons my son was able to learn more than he had with several lessons with past tutors. Anyone who has a child who is struggling with reading and dyslexia can tell you how heartbreaking it is watching your child go through this. Joyce has given our son back the confidence he needs to show him that he can succeed. We are so happy we found her and are looking forward to seeing him advance significantly in this area.

"Published Author Excels at Coaching Young Writers"
Twice during my teaching experience I've had students diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. My research on the subject revealed Asperger's as a mild form of Asperger's that is often mistakenly seen as a personality disorder. Asperger's does however share with the many manifestations of autism a difficulty in communicating, especially in matters of emotion. Physically, Aspergers people, (generally male) may flap their hands when excited and tend to walk on tip toe. It is not yet known why this is so.
Both of my students were male and in their early teen years. Both liked to play video games and ... More
