My goal as a tutor is to make learning enjoyable and fun. I am patient and encouraging and enjoy working with students of all ages and stages in life. I meet them where they are and build on their strengths and the knowledge that they bring. I have found that this is the most effective way to help them develop their self-esteem, confidence and the skills necessary to reach their goals. I have great success with students who struggle with Math or Learning in general. Find out more and read students and parents testimonies here.
I offer tutoring at your location ($50/hour), or at the Richland Public Library or Gather4Him Christian College ($40).
I have no words to express my respect for Diana, as a Teacher. David, my son, had been struggling with his math courses up until he worked with her, which changed everything for the better. Diana successfully tapped in his learning style, while he learned math and she assisted him in preparing for his SAT. David today, with the help of Diana, has passed all of his math requirements and has a strong SAT score! Diana, thank you so much for being a tremendous blessing to our family!
Diana is a marvelous tutor. My son was stuck in Chemistry 101 at college. A few weeks tutoring with Diana unlocked everything for him, and he was able to go on and whiz through things like organic chemistry. He is now in grad school and remembers Mrs. Petty with immense thankfulness.

Diana Petty has been employed by my family for the last six years as a tutor for our son Zak. During that time Diana has made an amazing impact on his school grades as well as his self esteem. Zak was on the verge of failing geometry when we first hired Diana to come to our home to work with him. She immediately began explaining geometry basics to our son in a way he could understand and utilize. She also encouraged him to take responsibility for his own successes or failures and to strive for excellence in everything he does.
Diana is highly respected by Zak and our family. Her willingness to work with our son on areas where he needed additional help has been instrumental in allowing him to not only pass geometry but to take higher level math classes in high school and then to advance to College where he is currently working on his Computer Science degree. She has continued tutoring him through his college math and physics classes with great results. She also helped Zak’s father in his preparation for a test he had to take at work.
