As the VISTA English Language Coordinator, Hannah works with the Education team to run NSC's ESL classes. She also runs the one-on-one tutoring program, which matches NSC clients with English language tutors. This program provides valuable language instruction to clients who would otherwise not receive it. She also works with the Employment team to improve the curriculum for an English class designed to provide newly arrived refugees with the necessary English skills to get and hold a job. She is serving with NSC as an Americorps VISTA.
Hannah graduated from the University of Iowa, where she studied English, Arabic, and literary translation, in May 2019. In Iowa City, she volunteered as an ESL tutor for adult English language learners, as well as at a local food bank. She is very excited to join NSC!
