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!

Dr.Bernard was so helpful with helping me write and revise my resume and cover letter. I am so grateful to have gotten the chance to work with her. This session with her was concise and informative.

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. Dr. Dianala, helped me to organize my thoughts and helped to produce an excellent scholarship essay that greatly exceeded my expectations. She is always willing to lend a helping hand and also serves as a mentor for me. You cannot go wrong by choosing her!

My son absolutely enjoyed his first lesson with Dr Dianala. After class today he summed up his experienced by "LOVED IT". Thank you so much for your time and for making math much more fun for my kid.
