Selected student feedback:
  • "Hannah is amazing! She livened up demography (which is really hard to do) and allowed for free–flowing conversation in precepts. She was super helpful, resourceful, and easy to get in touch with. Overall the best preceptor I've had!"
  • "Hannah was an absolutely incredible preceptor––by far my favorite preceptor that I've had at Princeton (which is saying something because I'm a senior). She did such a good job at explaining all of the complicated topics and making the environment in precept open and accepting. Most importantly she made learning the material fun!"
  • "Hannah is super compelling and asks great questions. She always pulls stuff out of you, even at 9am, and spins everything you say positively. It's awesome."
