What my students say
Read below to see what past students have said about me in their cards, letters and emails.
“You are not only my teacher, you are my friend, mentor and motivator. I will always be grateful to you for your kindness and support. You are the world’s best teacher – you shine above all the rest”. Liji, India – nurse.
“Dianna, thanks for having helped so much with the CPE. You are incredible!! We have reached our goal and I couldn’t be happier!!” Miriam, Spain – Master’s student and Bank Intern.
“Thank you. Since you are a great teacher, I passed IELTS with the score I need to carry on my career and life in the UK. I’d like to thank you, in particular, for being a wonderful person, which is quite rare nowadays”. Adriano, Italy – Medical student.
“Hi Dianna, I’ve got my IELTS results today and I’ve got 7.5 for speaking and I’m so happy. I just want to thank you, big thanks for the online support you gave me”. Geethani, Sri Lanka / NZ – Montessori teacher.
“I highly recommend Dianna! I am a stay-at-home mum and I find it very practical to have my online English sessions with her, because the times are very flexible and I can fit them into my life. She is an excellent teacher and it is really enjoyable to learn English with her, not only because she is so clear and practical in her explanations, but also because each class is so well organised and is adapted to my own needs. I feel very lucky to have found her! …Thanks a lot Dianna!” – Cristina, Columbia/NZ, mother and student nurse-to-be.
“Both Dianna and I correct my writing, which is fantastic, she points out the areas I need to improve with a comment and then we both make changes. This method helps to cement the correct writing form. Her feedback is clear, showing the good and bad points with guidance for what to do next. She also provides extra support for the weak areas by sending extra material to develop it further. In less than 2 months I can notice my improvement. I highly recommend Dianna to any other IELTS student. I really appreciate her help.” Vanesa, Argentina / NZ – teacher.
“Dianna is an excellent English teacher and has helped me improve a lot. As an added value, she provides a kiwi (New Zealander)point of view that opens a brand new world.” Tania, Brazil – Translator and Interpreter.
“Dianna, thank you very much indeed for your help with my IELTS. I was lucky, because some topics were very familiar because before the exam I had discussed almost all those topics with you. I would say you are like a real fortune teller. I have to admit that your lessons were the biggest contribution in my speaking skills and it goes without saying we will continue. Please accept my sincere appreciation for your help”. Evgeny, Russia – Engineer.
“I would like to say thank you – you are a really perfect teacher and an interesting conversational partner. I like your classes, your teaching methods and personal attitude to students. It was interesting to talk with you!” Nataliya, Ukraine – Marketing
