About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo! Yay! We can start in-person lessons again, as long as basic distancing is kept. I have been vaccinated and I would prefer my students to be vaccinated, too, but it's not a deal breaker. I teach several languages: French, German, and English for non-native English speaker

I have been a student with Diane for the last few years and she is the best French teacher I have ever had. Not only is she an amazing teacher but she is also genuinely fun to be with. This year, Diane helped me pass the French B2 Certification exam - she provided me with all the resources I could have ever hoped for, and I really couldn't have done it without her! I highly recommend her for anyone

Over the years, I've attempted voice lessons a few times and always walked away after a lesson or two. Not this time! Shelley has done the near impossible task of making me feel safe and at ease during our lessons. She is incredibly patient, supportive, warm, and hilarious, too! In addition to helping me with breathing and vocal techniques (which I desperately need, as I'm a beginner!) she also takes the time to nurture my emotional needs as well, as singing has always felt very vulnerable for me. She offers me mantras and writing exercises and is such a great listener. I highly recommend Shelley for any and all students!!
Micah P.
Shelley is a positive, professional, and effective teacher. My lessons with her were outstanding!

Every single lesson was tailored to my voice and my skill level. As I progressed, so did the lessons. Shelley prepared every lesson and conducted them all professionally. Over the course of a couple months, I went from not being able to carry a tune at all to singing comfortably and confidently in different genres.

She was excellent at teaching all aspects of voice including the anatomical structures involved and techniques to use the voice effectively.

She made difficult concepts easy to understand and used simple training tools very effectively. When I struggled in certain areas, she understood what my problem was even if I couldn't explain it well and helped me correct it.

In addition to her effectiveness as a coach, she is just a wonderful person and joy to work with. I plan on taking more lessons from her and I strongly recommend her to anyone!

My experience with Shelley was amazing!

I took weekly lessons with her for a few months and it was a great investment of time and money. I progressed from not being able to carry a tune at all to comfortably and confidently singing a variety of music.

She tailored every lesson to me so the lessons progressed as I did, which meant that my vocal skills and capabilities were continually growing.

Shelley's lessons were well structured and professional. They carried me through effective warmup exercises into singing that helped me continue to expand my range, delivery, and tone. I learned effective breathing techniques and proper shaping to get the clarity and tone that I wanted. I still implement her training on a daily basis and am now comfortable performing and recording a variety of musical styles and genres.

Her feedback and guidance was clear and easy to understand. Whenever there was concept I didn't understand, she knew how to explain it in a way that made it clear or use visual aids and basic tools to clarify.

Shelley helped me achieve a level of vocal control and confidence I didn't think would be possible for me.

Shelley is an outstanding teacher and I will take more lessons from her in the future!

My experience in the humanities includes a wide array of teaching and learning experiences. My time at Harvard, in high school, in personal studies, and over many tutoring experiences, has prepared me to tutor in English and Language Arts at the elementary, middle, and high school ages. I have experience tutoring students aiming for mastery in spelling, vocabulary, writing, grammar, and reading comprehension. I have worked with students on regular as well as AP coursework.

Currently an undergraduate at Harvard, I have long enjoyed sharing both my love of learning and the reserve of strategies that I've build up for overcoming academic challenges. In my experience, successful tutoring hinges on a flexible and dynamic teaching style, honed to each student's unique combination of strengths and struggles. There are many different ways to understand any concept or learn any skill. As a tutor, my goal is to find the unique approach that works for my student; we may not find it on the first

Sophia has been my tutor for all essay writing assignments and tasks for the past several years (at least 5 years), which includes coursework and application essays. She is extremely professional, kind, gentle, knowledgeable, and adapts her teaching style in a very tailored way to the student she is working with. In my experience, she is absolutely unique in the way in which she can take the essay content or structure that a student has in mind and, without throwing it out, put herself into the student's reference frame, and guide the student to rework or reframe it into a polished essay; moreover, even when this process requires significant changes, she manages to be empowering of the student the entire time, actually building their confidence while guiding them to improve their work. I say this from significant personal experience receiving exactly this kind of guidance from Sophia. I think part of what allows her to do this is she genuinely remains kind and humble the entire time, so her critiques and guidance are easy to accept and do not come across as harsh or in any way demeaning of the work I had done before meeting with her.

I should also mention that, having read some of her own writing, she is an exceptional writer herself and has significant experience in writing and tutoring analytical, creative, and scientific writing (I have come to her for help with all three types!). She also has a terrific intuition for how to structure an essay in a given context and purpose, which is something I particularly struggle with. As a final note, I would add that Sophia naturally teaches one how to write while guiding you to improve a particular essay, so you end up picking up her skill and experience as you work with her.

Having tried other tutors and attended writing workshops, etc., I can say with confidence that I have never found another writing tutor who comes close to Sophia--including in the quality of the finished products she helps create, degree to which she improves a student's own overall writing and organizational ability, and the way in which she tailors her approach to fit what is needed for a particular student, assignment, and even particular essay draft.
