About Hannah

Hello!

My name is Hannah. I am a first-year student at Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, where I am pursuing my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. I received my BA in Biology from the University of San Diego in May 2016, graduating Magna Cum Laude from the Honors Program. I minored in chemistry, studied abroad in Italy, and was involved in the on campus a capella group, volunteered at the Humane Society and at Project Wildlife. I worked for 2 years in an entomological research laboratory studying armored scale insect evolution, ecology and phylogenetics - the topic on which I wrote my thesis.

At the University of San Diego, I worked as a tutor in the Biology Department, and also did private tutoring for students.

From a young age, I have always been passionate about the sciences, math, and foreign languages. I speak Spanish and Italian. I am also a musician (piano, guitar, saxophone, ukulele) and a vocalist.
I also have a great deal of experience in musical theatre (Fun fact: My favorite role was playing Rizzo in Grease!)
I seek to integrate my eclectic interests, (ranging from the sciences to the fine arts) to provide a more holistic and engaging learning experience for my students. I have a profound love of learning, and I hope to impart this to others.

I struggle with ADHD and generalized anxiety disorder. Therefore, I understand on a personal level what it is like to pursue an education while struggling with these disabilities. Not only do they affect learning, but they also can affect motivation, self-esteem, and will to learn. I seek to help students overcome this by sharing tips and tricks that I have learned and employed in my own life, to help them realize their own success! It is my prerogative to provide a compassionate and individualized experience for each of my students, as each person is unique and has different educational needs. I believe it is important to cater to these needs to provide the most fulfilling experience.

I am a compassionate and loving person who wants everyone to share the love of learning that I have!

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.

Biology

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Honors Program at the University of San Diego with a degree in biology. At this university, I gained a great deal of experience through working as a student tutor through the Department of Biology. I have worked in a biological research laboratory for 2 years, and recently won the Manes Department of Biology Award for Excellence in Biological Research. I graduated with a GPA of 3.8.

Chemistry

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Honors Program at the University of San Diego with a degree in biology, with a minor in chemistry. I have taken chemistry courses up through biochemistry, alongside two semesters of organic chemistry (with labs), and two semesters of general chemistry, (with labs).

Microbiology

I recently took a course on Medical Microbiology, in which I received an A. I have deep interest in microbiology, and plan to pursue this field in Veterinary school.

Piano

I have been a pianist for 13 years. I can provide instruction for beginners on basic music theory, how to read music, sight-reading, improvisation, scales, hand exercises, and general technique. I have experience playing Classical, Jazz, Blues, Ragtime, and even Pop music on piano. I have also played keyboard in Jazz Band.

Saxophone

I have been playing alto saxophone for 11 years. In high school, I lettered in band; I was involved in Jazz Band, Pep Band, and Concert Band in high school. I played first chair in both high school and in college band. Moreover, I have been a beginner alto saxophone instructor for 3 years. I have a passion for music and would love to teach beginners this fun and exciting instrument!

Spanish

Though I am not a native Spanish speaker, I have taken over nine years of Spanish, and now speak it fluently. I have taken courses in advanced Spanish literature and culture, as well. I obtained a 5 on my AP Spanish exam in high school. I have since traveled to Spain, Mexico, and Panama.

On-time, friendly and very knowledgeable tutor!

Hannah has been great after only a short amount of time with our son. She makes the lessons fun but at the same time gets a lot done in a very short amount of time. We highly recommend Hannah.
