About Daria D.

Hi! My name is Daria. I live in the always sunny and beautiful Los Angeles, California, I am an intuitive life coach as well as a language teacher. In my role as an intuitive life coach, I use my intuition, tarot cards and oracle cards, as well as my knowledge of various healing modalities to provide my clients with deeper insight into their own life, with empowering advice and practical tools to help my clients effectively learn their life lessons and heal through whatever challenges they may be facing so that they can experience peace and joy. Thanks to my unique multinational heritage, I grew up multilingual (German, Czech and Russian) and received my education in Germany, Czech Republic, Russia and the United States. I received my Abitur diploma with highest distinction from Eleonoren-Gymnasium Worms (Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany) and my Bachelor's degree from Pomona College in California. My motto as a life coach and educator is: "The best teacher - whether of spirituality or of languages - is a lifelong eager learner."
I can't wait to meet you! :)

I Just want to thank Daria one more time to take ample time to offer me a tarot reading. As most of us know that, the answer that we seek, we already have the innate ability to get it, for part of us already knows the right answer.
I am grateful to Daria because she talked with me throughout the whole process with such great care and got me to the root of my situation.

It was a positive vibrant and productive session.
I wish her a very happy and healthy spiritual journey! 🙏

Daria read tarot cards for me the other day as I've asked her a question whether me applying in a new career field was a good idea? I've finished college in 2018 and couldn't find employment for over a year, then I finished a qualification course for teacher assistants and soon after I was given my first stable employment (been freelancing before). Full of optimism but with a grain of doubt I asked the stars/cards/higher power whether me choosing this career was a good move. Daria was able to confirm my own observations plus she added wise words of her own.

The reading doesn't give you a clear yes/no answer but if you've done a fair bit of introspection beforehand, the cards' advice may calm you down or offer you a new perspective you haven't considered before.

Daria gave me an online tarot reading about a month ago, and I came away with an experience that was enlightening and empowering. What I found unique about her approach as a psychic is that she combined her skilled intuition with practical advice that I could actually use to improve my life and find a measure of calm. She begins her sessions either with a specific question her client has in mind (whether it's related to relationships, family, career, aspirations, spiritual life, etc.), and if you do not come to her with a specific question, she is more than willing to do a general reading for you. (In my case, I sought advice related to my anxiety issues and their impact on my relationship with my fiancé, and over the past several weeks, things have really improved! So thank you!) If you are looking for someone who can help you see your circumstances more clearly and put you in touch with a spiritual sensibility, then Daria is someone to go see. She is not one of those charlatan psychics who will charge you excessively and then cloud your mind with bizarre, hazy predictions. She's an open-minded person and a great listener, and she's there to give you the tools to find joy and meaning.

I have been attending intermediate classes with Daria from Summer 2016 to now and have been very pleased with my experience. I feel that Daria did a good job of appropriately placing me in my level. I have been challenged but don't feel out of place or lost. We practice both conversation and grammar exercises. Daria is a native speaker and has a great mixture of methods that never gets boring. In fact I think our class time flies by and I am always excited to come back to class.

Daria is an excellent German teacher, but we had a regular lesson scheduled and she scheduled another one on top of my lesson and informed me of this one week before my scheduled class was to end. It felt somewhat weird that we had classes for nearly nine months at that time to be suddenly dropped. She indicated that she would do her best to find a time that works for me, but very minimal effort was made. I ended up finding another teacher.

Studying Russian with Daria has been an incredible experience for me. I am fascinated by Russian language and culture, and (despite me starting as a total beginner) Daria's lessons have provided me with deep insights into both. Not only have I learned to read, write and converse in Russian at a comfortable level over the course of our lessons, but we have also discussed some very interesting topics from Russian history, ethnography, famous Russian writers (Bulgakov), and some classic and contemporary Russian movies. Daria is a true gem!

I took Russian with Daria and learned really a lot. I wish I had more time to continue through it, however I am planning to come back. The best schedule, as you can have your lesson after work and we do a lot of talking and learning new words which is perfect to improve my conversation skills.

Daria is an extremely patient and kind instructor that goes at your pace and makes sure you understand all of the material at hand before moving on. When I first started my German lessons, I had little to no knowledge in German, but over the past few months, Daria has helped me progress to understand sentence structure, writing rules, and pronunciation techniques. Each lesson is broken down into easily understandable sections that allow you to become accustomed to the new words before moving on to the next section. The homework she assigns is never burdensome, but instead, gives a better grasp and understanding of the recent lesson material (e.g. formulating a sentence with both casual and formal context, forming a dialogue using the new vocabulary, using the correct "the" and following the grammar rules for feminine and masculine sentences, etc.). Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed our lesson and look forward to learning more in the future. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a German tutor to have a lesson with Daria.

I just completed my 9th two-hour lesson with Daria. Russian language is a huge challenge for nonnative speakers. This is my third language (and my college minor), and by far the hardest. Daria made the enormous complexities of Russian grammar understandable by breaking them down into smaller manageable chunks. She has a thorough understanding of the language which is evident in the way she teaches and handles with ease the often confusing aspects of Russian grammar. My reading and writing have improved tremendously.

This is exactly what I needed to get my German skills back on track; one on one instruction with emphasis on speaking and proper sentence structure. I'm so happy I signed up for lessons. This really is the best of both worlds, the convenience of learning in your own home and one on one instruction!

I took German lessons with Daria for 3 and a half years. Thanks to Daria's dedication and patience, I have been able to advance from some very basic knowledge of vocabulary/grammar to being able to live and work in Berlin as a research fellow (this is my seventh month in Germany). Daria is an excellent teacher - she is methodical and organized in her approach and very sensitive to her student's needs. I told her that one of my goals was to be able to read and understand German newspapers, so she would include very interesting reading assignments from SPIEGEL and DIE WELT in our lessons - I was able to learn a great deal about German politics and culture from our lessons. Daria was always patient and extremely helpful with all my grammar questions as well. I definitely recommend her for students of all levels and abilities!

The eLearning Guild is the oldest and most trusted source of information, networking, and community for eLearning professionals. As a member-driven organization, the Guild produces conferences, online events, online and blended training courses, eBooks, white papers, research reports, and Learning Solutions Magazine—all devoted to the idea that the people who know the most about making eLearning successful are the people who produce eLearning every day in corporate, government, and academic settings. Our goal is to create a place where eLearning professionals can share their knowledge, expertise, and ideas to build a better industry—and better learning experiences—for everyone.
