My specialty is Shakespeare and classical texts as I have been working with them all my life. I have directed and produced over 90 Shakespeare plays and others including Moliere, Middleton and modern authors as well. Are you having a hard time deciphering the language and following the story, even though classroom teachers have presented the material? Often there are clues that are missed in a quick read in the classroom that will open the doors to a much clearer grasp of these works. I can help unravel the mysteries of Shakespeare and make it fun and exciting. I am an enthusiastic and engaging teacher and I'd love to help you love these texts as I do.

Diana is a skilled and knowledgeable acting teacher. She helped my shy son find his voice and become the confident young man he is today. Personally, Diana helped me as an adult to overcome stage fright. Once I told Diana of my issue, she encouraged me to join one of her productions, and she nurtured me through the whole experience. Her skillful techniques and her caring, nurturing nature is a perfect combination for an amazing acting coach.
My daughter has worked with Diana in CST for 8 years. It is truly remarkable what she does for these kids, and what she gets out of them. By providing a safe space where they can learn, question, and have fun with the material, they become comfortable performing, and sharing their gifts with the public. Not only that, but they are learning Shakespeare, which has huge effect on their understanding of literature and global history. Diana makes all this FUN for the kids. They are there because they want to be, and from the youngest to the oldest they put their all into their performances while always supporting each other.
Diana’s teaching style must be a lot of fun, because my son has been studying acting with her for more than 3 years! He is always looking forward to the next learning / practice session!

Working on an essay?
Know someone in need of an editor?

I provide editing for high school and college students for their writing assignments, be it college application essays, research papers, or even just getting your ideas off the ground and into an rough draft.

Writing doesn’t come easily for everyone. Whether you need a look over for content or a deeper dive to get your writing to reflect your ideas, I can help. I’ll work with you to nail down your thesis statement, make your writing flow, and reflect your own voice. Throughout this process, I’ll help develop your writing skills for future assignments.

I am a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College (an extremely writing-heavy school) where I focused on creative writing in many forms. I come from a long line of editors in my family and have written a YA Fantasy novel that I'm currently querying for publishing.

Reading has always been one of my favorite things. It can take you to different worlds and through time. It can open the doors to learning and introduce you to characters that soon feel almost real, like new friends. I look forward to teaching you how to read and enjoy it as I do.

I had a great time with Katherine learning different drawing techniques. She was very knowledgeable and was able to adapt each lesson to what I needed to know that week. I really enjoyed our lessons last semester. :)

It's normal to struggle with public speaking. It can bring up anxiety for some of us, especially when we are meant to speak to a large number of people - even if we know what we have to say is important, or have a script. It takes practice to become comfortable and skilled at public speaking.

I know it can be scary, but I would love to share my tips and tricks to help you improve, feel confident, and actually have fun writing and delivering your speeches! I can't wait to share these with you and help you become an amazing public speaker, no matter the size of the audience.

"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!"

"Tom’s lessons are packed with fun games and activities, e.g., interactive PowerPoint, whiteboard, rubrics, videos. My daughters ability and confidence rose significantly over the past month, partially due to understanding what’s required and knowing what’s on the Common Core Standards. I think this should be explained to all students."

Having read Christopher's bio, I sensed that there was something special about him, and that he was the right one for our son who has some learning challenges, particularly in the area of Math. I believe it is very important a tutor connects not only on an academic level but also where there can be some light hearted conversation. Christopher arrived punctually for our first meeting and his assessment of our son. In advance of that meeting I had explained to Christopher what the challenges are and what our collective objectives are. As soon as I saw him, he appeared to relaxed but confident. After an initial introduction, I stepped away to let Christopher and our son become acquainted and he immediately set about establishing some common ground which happened to be a particular sport. No more than Christopher, our son is also very perceptive and despite the fact that he initially resisted the idea of any tutor, his words after this first meeting were "I can work with him"! Its obviously early days yet, but so far so good!"

"Colin is amazing. I was preparing to take the AFOQTS and my first score was 70... I scheduled lessons with Colin and 2 weeks later I scored a 98 on the actual test! Colin was extremely good at communicating with me, being flexible in our lessons and adopting what he was teaching to exactly what I needed. Like me he had to "relearn" math as an adult and because of that he is able to explain things so that they make sense logically rather than give formulas to memorize like my horrible public school teachers.

I really cannot recommend him enough, thank you for all your help Colin!"
