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!Show More
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!Show More

Dr. Dianala is amazing at what she does! Recently, I was having a difficult time writing an essay for a scholarship that I wanted to apply for. I had no clue as to what direction I wanted to go in.

She is always willing to lend a helping hand and also serves as a mentor for me. You cannot go wrong by choosing her!Show More
