I have extensive experience helping students develop effective writing and library research skills, including implementation of APA Style. I hold a Doctorate in Educational Leadership and Curriculum and Instruction. The focus of my dissertation was the impact of education on Latino students from a representative bureaucracy perspective. The retrospective study centered on determining to what extent Latino representation in governance influence Latino students’ graduation rates in public high school in two counties in New York. My writing and research interests include teachers-as-researchers, examining ethnic identity, biculturalism, development of children of color, social and cultural theory, Latino and Afro-Latino studies, race and ethnicity (with a focus on Afro-descendants in and from Latin America), urban sociology, education policy, educational leadership, Culturally-Responsive Teaching, and transition to college initiatives.

Dr. Dianala is a fantastic writing coach. I appreciated the guidance in developing research-based papers, including the implementation of APA 6th edition. As a college student, APA skills are very important and knowing how to apply it is critical to a successful paper. Awesome teacher/tutor/coach!

Dr. Dianala has been instrumental with helping me develop reporting documents for my church. I was impressed with her help with another church where she helped develop fliers and letters of introduction to organizations to help with the church's soup kitchen initiatives. Overall, it seems to me that Dr. Dianala can develop writing documents for any situation...She is wonderful!

Brookline, MA

I have noticed many children in the United States speak Spanish, but they only learn how to write and read in English at school. Having a formal instruction in Spanish can help enhancing young speaker's linguistic abilities.
If you or your child needs some help with Spanish reading and/or writing and expanding vocabulary, we can work together. I have experience working with heritage speakers of Spanish. It is a very rewarding experience to teach them.

About Paloma
Hola! I am Paloma, I am from Spain and I have been living in Boston for the past three years. I am currently in the Pd.D. Program in Spanish at Boston Universty, where I am also an instructor of Spanish.
I have tutored students since I was an undergrad. Prior to moving to the States I completed a Master in Education at the University of Zaragoza and I taught in a Spanish high school.

I love teaching Spanish and the culture(s) that come with it. If you are thinking about starting the language, you want to improve your grammar and vocabulary or you would like to become more fluent, we can work together!
I also love teaching to children.

About Randy
I have a Masters degree in Theatre History and Criticism (Theatrical Critical Theory). I have teaching experience and have been exposed to many different types of teaching styles and locales, (i.e. classroom, studio).I have a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts with a focus on acting, Academia.com holds some of my work and I can certainly offer more.
I have always been an actor first, simultaneously I have believed that teacher's are born not bred. At the risk of tooting my own horn; I am both, an actor and a teacher with more than a few credentials to support those facts. Peace and Kind Regards

We can learn backwards. We'll write and then understand. We will write about what we like. This is the time to examine our pleasures, like what we ate, what we built, what we saw on our walk, what we want to learn. Let's write Z first. This is not to simplify but to take the pressure off and find the joy.

About Patricia
Looking for young and curious minds who need a little companionship during their creative moments of putting their ideas forward.

I am a photographer with a visual mind, yet I love to read and write regularly every day. Reading and Writing gives me pleasure and I think it can open up the world to us, if it becomes easy to do.

To start, we can learn backwards. We'll write and then understand. We will write about what we like. This is the time to examine our pleasures, like what we ate, what we built, what we saw on our walk, what we want to learn. We can look around us and examine our ability to observe and describe. We will do our research and then find the way to communicate what we know. Let's write Z first. This is not to simplify but to take the pressure off and find the joy. Z is for Zest.

About Timon
Hi! I am a professional musician, songwriter, and academic living in Nashville. I have a Ph.D. and have been teaching and playing music for nearly 20 years. I teach a wide variety of methods and find what works for each of my students. All of your lessons are personally tailored just for you and your musical or learning needs.

About me: I am a touring and studio musician as well as a songwriter. As a writer for Terrorbird Media, I write for songs for television shows, commer
cials, movies, and other performing artists. I also co-own and co-operate an independent record label. I live in TN with my wife, a small wire-haired terrier that looks like a cartoon character, and an embarrassingly large collection of books and vinyl records.

Timon is a really great guitar teacher. I am an older student who has had some previous musical education in other instruments. Timon is able to understand my goals and customize the learning plan and approach to meet me at my current level of skills and understanding. He has an incredible knowledge of music from both a theory POV as well as different genres, styles and music eras. He is really fun to work with and and is always supportive and encouraging. I look forward each week to the learning process. I definitely believe I will be a much better, more well-rounded guitar player working with Timon than I would be with other teachers that I have met.
