Hannah W. of South Pasadena CA USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Hannah W.
Gender: Female   Age: 22-25
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I graduated from the Claremont Colleges with double honors, double majoring in Economics and Political Studies with a 3.84/4.0 overall GPA. Within my economics major, I earned a 3.91/4.0 GPA. I am currently in the process of applying to Ph.D programs in Economics.

Some of my previous tutoring/teaching experiences include being a Teaching Assistant in Economics and tutoring in mathematics and writing. Since advanced economics is essentially applied math, I have much experiences dealing with numbers! As a result, I have enough experience to tutor up to multi-variable calculus and linear algebra. But perhaps most importantly, I am greatly passionate about the subjects I teach (reasons for my pursuit of a Ph.D), which I am confident will be picked up by students as they study the same subjects.

In the past, I have been frustrated with learning from unorganized teachers who can't seem to piece all concepts together logically and who have trouble giving a simple, concise answer. This has probably influenced my style to be very straightforward and organized. I like to lay all concepts out by drawing or writing out concepts as I teach and explain, so students can concentrate on listening rather than taking notes. I believe that students must know why a graph or an equations is the way it is, in order for them to properly understand how to apply and use it. As such, I want to foster a more conversational environment in which students will feel at ease to interrupt and ask questions any time.

Please feel free to contact me if I can further clarify my background or if I can answer any questions.
