We asked Diana to answer a few questions, so that you can get to know her a little bit.a


When did you know you wanted to be a teacher?

I knew I wanted to become a teacher when I was sixteen years old. I had always loved school and loved to learn. I would form study groups with friends and I realized that teaching is the best way to learn.

Tell us about a teacher that believed in you and made a difference in your life?

I worked with the same math tutor from seventh grade to twelfth grade. He changed my understanding of what it meant to be a hard worker. He sat with me for hours until I understood a concept. He would allow me to explore and ask questions and he always had a clear answer. He taught me that patience and a clean piece of paper is crucial for success in mathematics.

What’s your favourite thing about online tutoring?

Online tutoring allows me to connect with clients no matter where they are. This brings ease and convenience to the clients. I love to connect ideas using the multitude of tools on the platform. Woot Tutor makes it easy to make true mathematical connections and successes for students!

Why did you become a Woot Tutor?

I became a Woot Teacher because I love the opportunity to grow my tutoring experience and connect with students regardless of their location. Also, the tools the platform provides are exciting, I am able to have students use multiple representations such as tables, text and writing.

What do you love about the Woot program?

Once again, the technology allows for deeper discussion and exploration of the content. The Woot Program takes everything I love about tutoring – personal connection, coaching, and student centered learning – and allows me and the client to connect anywhere! This is a very powerful platform because it gives flexibility in what is usually a rigid schedule. When working with families, things come up and they need to reschedule. Using the Woot Tutor program makes rescheduling a breeze!

What do you love doing in your spare time?

Traveling the world and cooking are my two passions outside of teaching. I love bringing people together with food.
