About Hannah

I have tutored and taught students of all ages and love working with students. I have worked with high school, middle school, and elementary-aged students. From math to English, I have helped students achieve their academic and test-taking goals. I was an all-purpose tutor and classroom assistant for the Upward Bound program, CollegeBound. I tutored students in Italy and Mexico who were studying English while living abroad. I have worked in after school programs as a fourth grade teacher. From math problem sets, lab reports, and ACT tutoring, I have helped students succeed by providing safe environments for students to ask questions as I tailor my teaching strategies to their learning styles. I make learning accessible and set goals that my students can achieve in order to provide a sense of improvement and accomplishment and boost students' morale. I am kind and hard working and never make my students feel bad or silly for struggling with any academic subject.

I have a degree in English from the University of Puget Sound which makes me a great tutoring candidate for students of all ages struggling with reading and essay-writing. I have a great deal of experience with proofreading, organizing essays, and drafting personal statements. The University of Puget Sound is a liberal arts school which requires all students to enroll in core requirements, so I have studied a range of topics at the college level which make me an ideal all-purpose tutor, as well. I have a Master's of Social Work from Hunter College, a top ranked and competitive MSW program in New York City. Through my work as a social worker, I have worked with kids and adolescents with a wide variety of life experiences and personal struggles. My strength-based and supportive approach allows students to feel capable and worthwhile as they work to meet their goals.

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.

Study Skills

I was successful in developing my own study skills as a student and kept a high GPA. My major GPA in college was a 3.7. I also assisted high school students with their study skills as a Youth Program Assistant. Additionally, I have worked with students in enrichment classes where we employed a variety of creative teaching methods and study skills.

Fabulous Tutor

Hannah is the best thing that has happened to my daughter. Hannah is extremely patient with her. She doesn't just tell my daughter what she is doing wrong, she helps her to reason to the right answer. She keeps my daughter engaged and now my daughter is eager to work more with Hannah.
