My name is Hannah, and I am a graduate from UC Berkeley with a Bachelor's degree in Art History. In addition to teaching children's art workshops in college, I have been working as a private tutor since October 2015, and believe that every student has the potential to shine if given the right attention. As a tutor, I am very patient and encouraging, and look for creative ways to engage my students in learning. While I am primarily interested in preparing students for high school and college entrance exams, I am driven to help any student who is struggling to stay motivated in school. When I am not advocating for her students, I can be found drawing, sewing, or playing with my adorable kitten Nina!

As a full-time tutor, I spend several hours every day either in session with my students or developing my skills as a teacher.

What is your teaching philosophy?

As a tutor, I like to emphasize effort over results. Students often feel anxious about the prospect of failing, or making mistakes, and this anxiety can impact their capacity for learning. I encourage my students to view mistakes as opportunities for growth, and to judge themselves not on the basis of their achievements, but on the basis of the effort they put forth.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

During my first session with a new student, I like to spend some time getting to know them on an academic and personal level. What are their goals for tutoring? What concerns do they have about their ability to reach those goals? What are they passionate about outside of school? After getting to know my student a little bit better, I work with them to create a tutoring plan based on their timeline & availability.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

As a tutor, I encourage my students to be active participants during our sessions. Whether they are a straight-A student or one that is struggling, I expect my students to ask "stupid" questions, tackle intimidating assignments, and to complete their homework as assigned. Once a student sees what they are capable of when they apply themselves, they feel empowered to be independent learners!
