Hannah R. recently graduated from University of Toronto with an HBSc in Astronomy & Astrophysics and History & Philosophy of Science. She excelled academically, receiving many scholarships in math and physics in addition to being a Rhodes Scholarship Finalist and graduating with a 4.0 CGPA. During university Hannah gained teaching experience as an intern at Toronto French School working with grade 11 & 12 Theory of Knowledge students, and as a teaching assistant for a university course about the History of Math. She also kept herself busy as the president of the History & Philosophy of Science Undergraduate Society and as an athletic trainer for her college’s dragonboat team. Hannah has always been passionate about education and as she grew older she became more acutely aware of the opportunities afforded to her from her own education. This awareness inspired her to launch an affiliate of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a charity which mails books to preschool children, to help support early education in her hometown of Saskatoon. Hannah’s passion for education grew deeper throughout her studies as she recognized the necessity of effective science education for a fruitful science-society relationship.

Hello! My name is Donovan E. and I am excited to meet you. I recently moved to Miami from Houston, TX to continue my training in medicine. Aside from tutoring, I’m looking to see if the tacos here compare to back home so I will be accepting all recommendations. When I’m not enjoying local eateries, enjoying and playing music, and studying, you can find me continuing my passion for helping young minds master their skills in Math and Science. I have a love for these subjects and I truly enjoy helping students no matter where they are in their journey. Be it aiming to raise a grade or getting over the hump to truly master one of my listed subjects, I am confident that decade-plus experience as a private tutor will prove helpful on your journey.
