As a licensed Colorado teacher, I have proven my dedication to excellence by helping children close the achievement gap in both literacy and math. I love teaching children the strategies that will make learning accessible, and have successfully helped even reluctant learners! Nothing makes me happier than when students see the far reaching fruits of their labor coming back on report cards, and in their general confidence. I encourage students to be active participants in goals setting, and routinely check-in to determine new goals.
I am experienced as both a classroom educator and tutor. I have previously taught in primary grades in St. Vrain Valley School District. In addition, I have completed a graduate level fellowship with the University of Colorado's Partners In Education (PIE) program. As a tutor, I emphasize multimodal learning and integrate instruction to target both subject areas and skill acquisition. Mendi Y., interventionist at Legacy Elementary, spoke highly of my students' achievements; she said, "(Hannah) was able to isolate areas of weakness in her students and implement successful strategies to help these students close their gap in performance. I saw this happen again and again in her room."

Exceptional tutor - 2nd grade
We selected Hannah to work with our 2nd grader who has been struggling a bit to keep up in reading and math. He is one of the youngest in the class and really needed some creative one-on-one time. Hannah was extremely responsive to my emails and phone calls. She met with me for the first visit, showing me selected books that were exactly what interests him. Her math activities are very creative as well. She has been on time for each session, bringing activities and books completely appropriate and fascinating for our 2nd grader. He loves to draw so she has him creating his own book with his own drawings reflecting words he is learning. When a math assignment from his class did not make sense, Hannah was able to explain it to all of us and work with him to complete the assignment correctly. Our 2nd grader is excited to know she is coming, sits at the kitchen table with her for an hour without fidgeting at all. He is proud of his work, excited to show how carefully he can write, can explain his math assignments and has bonded with Hannah very well. Hannah combines expertise working with a 7 year old with activities that show results after each session. She is patient but also keeps things moving, pushing him just enough to keep him challenged without the frustration he has been feeling. I am a college professor and am very impressed with her style, knowledge, presentation, and the work they complete each session. We are so glad we found her and will be using her for bi-lingual learning once he is up to speed in core subjects. I would strongly recommend Hannah as an excellent tutor!Linda, 23 lessons with Hannah
Hannah seems to have developed an excellent rapport with our grandson and is very effective at keeping him focused for the entire hour and keeping the lesson a fun learning experience. They are about to have their fourth session.Sue, 57 lessons with Hannah
Great First Lesson
Hannah is going to make a great tutor for Jimmy. She quickly zoned in on the areas that he needs work in. I can tell by his spelling and punctuation after his first small written story with her, that this is exactly what he needs. Thanks Hannah.Beth, 13 lessons with Hannah
A Big Help
Hannah has been a big help to my son. His writing grades dropped to a C on his second trimester report card. We hired Hannah and after working with her for two months once a week he is now back up to B. We plan on having her work with him all summer to help him prepare for middle school. I have no doubt he'll be doing A level work at that point. My son enjoys his sessions with Hannah. She gets the job done and keeps him on task all while making it interesting and fun.Leslie, 66 lessons with Hannah

We are very impressed with her techniques and enthusiasm. We are very pleased.Julie and Francois, 60 lessons with Hannah
Hannah worked with my 6 year old daughter who had been struggling with reading in Kindergarden and at the start of the first grade. My daughter showed extremely high improvement over the time that she worked with Hannah, and she is now firmly at grade level. Hannah was very professional and communicative to me as a parent. She shared with me the different tools and tricks that she was using to help my daughter progress and what she perceived as her strengths and what she thought she should pay special attention to.Cathy, 23 lessons with Hannah
