I am passionate about teaching and fascinated by our ability to learn and enable learning. For me the teaching process is a dialogue that enriches and fulfills both teacher and student. I believe that every student has the ability to excel given the right resources. It is this very belief that energizes and motivates me to strive for the success of every student I help.

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor

Ms. Hanna helped my daughter with 8th grade math on functions. She is a very knowledgeable and talented tutor. She is very patient and explains the subject very well. My daughter really enjoys her style of teaching. Thank you so much, Ms. Hanna.

A really great tutor.

Hanna is extremely nice, highly organized and very thorough in her approach. She is pleasant, easy to work with and above all — determined to help you reach your goal. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to reach their true potential.

Wonderful Tutor for the GRE!

I worked with Hanna in preparation for the GRE. I have ADHD and have always struggled with test taking and feeling confident in my abilities to do well with timed exams. Hanna was an incredible tutor who gave me valuable tips and walked me through questions and concepts I had a hard time with - especially for the quantitative section. After our time together, I felt confident and prepared to take the GRE. Thanks to Hanna, I was able to raise my scores for the Verbal section by 5 points and the Quantitative section by 8 points. I would recommend Hanna to anyone!

The best tutor!

Hanna taught me a magnitude of information. She showed me everything I needed to know for the math section of the GRE. She also taught me how to attack the written section of the GRE. She sent me multiple links for the vocab and math, and hooked me up with some apps to help with my studying. I like how Hanna always makes sure that you understand what she is trying to teach. You can ask as many questions as you want. She has the patience to spend more time with you so that you fully understand each topic. She helped me tremendously throughout this process, and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without her.

Thorough and extremely helpful

Hanna was quick to find where I was going wrong in my GRE prep. She assigned homework to help develop better strategies, and I'm already seeing improvements. If you need to prepare for a math exam, she is the best!

Patient and detailed tutor

Hanna tutored my son for about 2 weeks to brush up for his SAT exam. After few lessons with Hanna, he seems very confident, well prepared and looking forward to take the exam. Thank you for all your help to build up his level of confidence.

An Extensive but Much Deserved 5 Stars Stellar Review

*This is an extensive (which is code for spirited and lengthy) review. If you are not interested in the specifics, I recommend skipping to the last paragraph and/or concluding statement. :) Hanna is unparalleled when it comes to adapting to a students strengths and weaknesses to provide a personalized approach to learning that works best for you individually. When I reached out to Hanna I was upfront about what I needed from a tutor, which was that I had to register and take the GRE last minute at the request of an admissions counselor. I was told that I needed to submit a GRE score as soon as possible because they needed supplemental information before making a decision on my admittance into the program. I completed my undergraduate degree with a major in English. Math is something I have not only always struggled with, but I have been told by many peers, family, and even educators for the entirety of my time as a student that I am not good at math. I was extremely anxious and hesitant about attempting to take the GRE solely because of how poorly I thought I would perform on the math portion. Hanna was able to commit to 6 hours worth of sessions in one week. This time was spent intensively learning and retaining as much information as possible to try and prepare myself for the math portion of the test as best I could. Hanna was able to apply and prioritize our sessions for what I specifically needed. She was encouraging and never seemed frustrated with me even when she probably had a right to be. She took every step with me, and would consistently check to make sure that I understood the material before she moved on. She also analyzed and adjusted her teaching tactics to be more suited to my style of learning which made this objectively frustrating feeling and situation more manageable even, if I dare to say it, enjoyable. My friends, family and especially myself would never believe that I could even admit to tolerating math, much less somewhat enjoying it. Hanna knew exactly when she needed to push me to work through the problems and when I needed to have the material broken down or reiterated an embarrassing amount of times. She also responded to messages and questions outside of our scheduled lesson and her hours. At the end of our last session, she took the time to go over testing strategies, both from a math performance and personal standpoint, that she recommended for me personally based off her understanding of my way of thinking and my capabilities. She even told me that I could message her if I had any last minute questions leading up to my testing time and to let her know how the test went afterwards. I’m sure that this review is far too long for most readers to reach this part, but Hanna completely changed my relationship with and mindset about math. She more than exceeded my expectations, and I felt like she was genuinely invested in seeing me succeed. As I write this review, I am scheduled to take my GRE in less than 24 hours. I never would have predicted that I would feel even remotely ready to take the test, but I have never felt less testing anxiety than I do now after working with Hanna. If you are looking for a miracle worker, trust me when I say that Hanna is the closest thing to a mathematical fairy godmother that you can find on Wyzant.

helped tremendously

A patient, and encouraging tutor. Helped break down anything I didn’t understand, and made sure it was completely understood before moving on. Not only tutored me but also gave me great encouragement on my GRE. something I didn’t know I needed!
