About Hannah

I graduated Summa Cum Laude (3.84 GPA) from the University of Pennsylvania, with a major in English and a Creative Writing concentration. I completed my MA in English at Loyola Marymount University and my PhD in English and Creative Writing at the University of Southern Mississippi's Center for Writers. I am a published poet, seeking a career in writing and teaching post-secondary education. Currently, I am pursuing another degree--an MFA in poetry, at the University of California, Irvine. Over the past five years I have taught college courses in composition, literature, creative writing, and technical writing. I have tutoring experience in writing, English, Spanish, and test preparation. I currently score for the SAT essay section, as well as for the AP English Language and Composition exam. I am a very patient tutor, kind and approachable, and I have a friendly demeanor. I am willing to help anyone, no matter their skill level. I look forward to meeting you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

College Counseling

I have an MA and a PhD in English, and am pursuing an MFA in poetry. I have written many of my own college and graduate school admissions essays, as well as helped others with theirs. I have taught college writing courses for the past five years, and have also written recommendations for students. Most recently, I have taught business and professional writing--a course that requires students to complete cover letters and resumes--so I have experience with this aspect of the application process as well.
