Information about Diane

If you are looking for experience, sound teaching methodology, flexibility, and robust critical thinking, get in touch to arrange a first lesson. I am a Cambridge graduate who has over 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience.

I tailor my sessions to the individual. I specialise in English language and literature at all ages from child to adult. I can also help with goal-setting, learning strategies, essay writing, creative writing, effective communication and public speaking. I can travel to you, within the Cambridge area. In terms of pricing, I can adapt costs for those on a low budget but I aim to ask for a price which takes into account my years of experience and top tier academic attainment.

I graduated in English from Cambridge University in 2005 and then spent another 3 years in postgraduate study, at Masters and PhD level. I spent several years combining teaching with work supporting people with mental health issues, learning difficulties and autism, before helping to establish a small local charity to support homeless people in Cambridge. I worked to manage the operational aspects of writing and editing a magazine of articles written by homeless and ex-homeless people, and supported the beneficiaries to increase their writing skills and confidence.

After this project came to an end I studied for a CELTA qualification which allowed me to enhance my teaching and tutoring skills. Since then I have combined teaching at EFL colleges with private tutoring.

Availability: A lot of flexibiity at the moment; get in touch and I`m sure I can fit you in!

Willing to travel: 3 miles

Experience: 10 years of tutoring and teaching children and adults

Super tutor.

Darren (Mr)

Diane was able to review and respond to the areas that I wanted to cover with her. The lessons were enjoyable and she made a concerted effort to focus on my pain points with my written English. I searched a number of profiles and I felt Diane had the right experience for what I was looking for. I wasn`t disappointed.

I have contacted Diane to help me edit my poems. So far we have had only one session (we agreed that I will contact Diane when I write more poems and reflective stories). The session went very well. Diane read the poems and made some editing suggestions before the class, which I found very helpful. I hope to have more sessions with this tutor.

I thought the best review will always come from the pupil/student. So my 15 year old daughter has carefully considered her response and has said...’Diane is highly knowledgeable and I find her lessons engaging. She tailors the lesson to the individual. I feel challenged in a really positive way’. From a parent point of view, I am delighted with Diane as a tutor. She is highly recommended.
