What People Have to Say About Working with Diandra...
"I’m a 28-year-old French guy with a pretty thick accent. Diandra was the first and only teacher I tried, because our sessions were friendly and interesting right from the beginning! I might have been the laziest student she ever had, but Diandra still found way to try to motivate me with daily videos/tests, weekly homework, group chat, and lots of advice on what videos and resources to watch and listen to. She was always in a good mood, even when I kept on complaining about the inconsistencies of the English language. She has a lot of patience, and, as a professor myself, that's a rare quality to have.
I have been in a the U.S. for about one year now, and I really feel that the 5-6 months I spent working with Diandra were the when I improved the most! In other words: I would, no question, highly recommend working with her."
Greg from Grenoble, France
"Diandra has helped me understand the nuances of the American accent and become a better speaker. Her classes are always fun and she provides spot-on and non-judgmental feedback. Although our main focus was on improving my accent, Diandra also helped me prepare for job interviews. All in all, she has taught me to be more confident about the way I speak."
Gwen from San Francisco, California
"I’ve learnt many perfect phrases for everyday communication life. In addition, Diandra has taught me how to pronounce words that I was struggling with. She also helped me with oral presentations based on TED talks. Finally, she helped out to memorize new vocabulary. I had an excellent time meeting with Diandra. She encouraged me to believe more in myself. She is an extremely good teacher!"
Juliana from Sao Paulo, Brazil
"I was initially looking for someone to practice English conversation skills with, and whose background is similar to Diandra’s. She corrected my pronunciation with explanations and provided practice drills whenever we studied together to the point that I became aware of my errors more independently. She helped me to expand my limited expressions in English, which made me more comfortable with writing essays for class.
Now I am more confident with speaking as well as writing in English than before. I highly recommend working with Diandra."
Miyuki from Tokyo, Japan
"Diandra and I worked together for two months. She helped me work towards improving my GRE writing score, since I was not confident with my writing skills. We met twice a week for an hour, and Diandra always listened to my concerns of taking standardized tests. I wrote several essays in advance and she provided feedback on the structure, grammar, and the content of each essay. That feedback helped me tremendously to pinpoint my strengths and weaknesses. I highly recommend working with Diandra. Because of her help, I achieved a high score in the writing portion of the GRE and was able to get into the graduate programs of my choice."
Miya from NYC, New York
"Diandra provided me with extremely helpful and thorough feedback on my personal statement for graduate school (applying for a master's in speech-language pathology). I would highly recommend working with her!"
