Administrative Staff

Lianna Dunten
Academic Coordinator

I have a B.A. from Bard College, and attended the M.F.A. writing program at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, with a concentration in Fiction. My teaching experience includes: a Creative Writing class at a drop-in center for underprivileged youth in Hudson, NY; four years of teaching Freshmen Composition at UMass/Amherst; six years of teaching Creative Writing, Technology Literacy, and Video Editing at the Richmond Middle School in Hanover; and SAT preparation classes for the Ivy Leader program at Dartmouth college.

I have been a tutor with Upper Valley Tutoring for four years, focusing on the areas of reading and writing help, standardized test preparation, and executive function coaching. I enjoy working one-on-one with students to help them achieve their academic goals. In my administrative capacity, I help match students with tutors, schedule and organize organize our proctored practice tests, and hire new tutors.

I have lived in the Upper Valley for sixteen years. In addition to my work at UVT, I am the mother of a second grader, and a freelance writer who has published articles in the Valley News parent supplement.

Ana Edson
Company Manager

I am a transplant from Southern California, having arrived in Hanover, NH, to attend Dartmouth College. It wasn't long into my undergraduate years that I fell in love with the Upper Valley, and so it seemed natural to make a life here after graduation. I've worn many hats since then, spending time as an office manager, a production potter, and web merchandiser.

In May of 2014, I joined Upper Valley Tutoring as the Company Administrator, after having been home with my little ones for several years. In 2018, I became the Company Manager. I handle the billing, payroll and various other administrative duties.
