Hamza Masaeed

English & History Teacher/Mentor

Hamza was born in Jordan, where he lived for the first 18 years of his life, before deciding to move the the United States to pursue his education. After earning his Bachelor’s in psychology from Amherst College, Hamza worked at McLean Hospital, a mental hospital dedicated to ameliorate the suffering of the mentally ill. While harboring strong interest in academic rigor, Hamza also deeply values incorporating social emotional learning in his teaching methodology. As such, tailoring his teaching style for each student’s unique psychological temperament, interests, and ambitions, captures the essence of Hamza’s approach to teaching. 

Expectedly, Hamza’s library is saturated with works of both fiction and non-fiction that tackle crucial psychological—and philosophical—questions. One of those questions revolves around the notion of self-expression. Linguistic expression, Hamza fervently believes, is one of the most effective—and cathartic— ways one can express themselves (hence his appreciation for languages). 

Apart from academia, Hamza loves everything about athleticism, dogs, Marvel (specifically Thanos), Dragon Ball, Muhammad Ali, and food, provided it’s not spicy.
