Hi, all! My name's Hannah. I'm passionate about encouraging others to discover happiness, but I tutor writing and Spanish here in the SCC (and just hope to sprinkle that joy in along the way). My favorite part about being a tutor is seeing others accepting their weaknesses and coming to the SSC to conquer them. IT's like watching goats climb a mountain -- you stare, mouth agape, and think, "Look at them go! That perserverance!" If you need writing or Spanish help, I'd be glad to assist in any way I can. I'm looking forward to meeting you all!
