About Hannah

Hello, my name is Hannah. I am passionate about sharing my love of learning with everyone that I teach. Learning can be a very exciting process if students are able to make a meaningful connection with the material. I harness my knowledge of psychology to help students learn on their own terms.

I currently volunteer as a tutor and homework helper at a local nonprofit organization, the Experimental Station. Here, I provide a space for children aged 8 to 18 to set and achieve academic and personal goals. My favorite aspect of tutoring here is being able to facilitate the moment where a student finally comprehends a concept after struggling with it. Sometimes it takes considerable effort to explain something in a way that another individual will understand. The beauty of tutoring is that it allows more room to successfully reach the "aha" moment that is so rewarding for everyone involved.


I have a bachelor's degree in psychology. I elected to participate in my school's psychology honors program, which required me to design, run, and analyze my own research. This experience has given me a thorough understanding of the scientific method, and has taught me how to think like a scientist. I am familiar with several subfields of psychology, including neuroscience, social psychology, and lifespan development.

In addition to my knowledge of psychology, I have taken several biology classes. Biology is one of my favorite subjects, and I would be happy to tutor others in this field.

I regularly proofread the writing of my family and friends, from essays to emails. I have a solid sense of grammar, and I know how to make sentences more concise. Concise sentences are easier to read. Therefore, they make your writing more understandable! I can provide lessons which will teach you how to properly proofread your own writing.

I hope to have the opportunity to help you achieve your goals!

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.

Proofreading

I have proofread the writing of countless classmates, friends, mentees, and family members. I have a keen sense of grammatical rules, spelling prowess, and the ability to cut needless filler. Clear and concise is what I aim for. I am familiar with both APA and MLA formatting.

Writing

I have had copious experience working as a peer editor both in class and for friends and family.
