Math (All levels)
I started GameFace Tutoring in 2007 with 23 students after teaching at Sun Valley High School.
Graduated with a 3.87 GPA from West Chester with a degree in secondary education in math.
Scored in the top 15% on the Praxis Test (teaching entrance exam).
After graduating from PSU in 2001 I played in a band full-time until 2005. We played everywhere from Killington, VT to Key West, FL, and played festivals with bands like Jimmy Eat World, Reel Big Fish, Violent Femmes, and Wilco. I have a collage at GameFace Tutoring to prove it.
In December, 2009, I rejoined the music world by co-lead-singing with The Fuzzy Bunny Slippers. That lasted until August, 2010, when I realized that I can't get home at 5 a.m. and still run a business the next day.
My youngest of 2 children was born on my birthday.

I have a Master's degree in Inorganic Chemistry from UPenn.
I have more than 5 years of teaching experience - for the last two years I was a high school teacher, and before that I taught college students as an adjunct instructor, a TA, and a tutor.
I particularly like working with students in a one-on-one setting.
I am left-handed, which is even less common in women than it is men (I also have two left-handed sisters).
My favorite TV comedy is Parks & Rec.
I am also a yoga instructor. I like doing one-legged balance poses, and I can do a headstand for two minutes!
Adam$55 monthly upfront / $65 pay as you go
Physics, Algebra 1, Middle School Math, Elementary School Math
I will be graduating from Western Governors University in May of 2020 with a Bachelor's degree in Physics/Education.
Before attending WGU I attended Rowan University for two years as a Civil Engineering student, and through this experience was able to see more real world applications of physics principles.
Between my freshman and sophomore years at Rowan I was an intern at a mechanical engineering firm that specialized in pvc piping and needed me to update their older 3D drawings and render new models. I was also able to view the plant that produced the pipes and witness how the entire process came together and formed the pipes that run water to our homes.
I enjoy playing/watching soccer. My favorite position is goaltender and my favorite team is Tottenham Hotspur.
My biggest passion outside of physics is playing video games for fun and competition. I was a tournament player for League of Legends for a few years and then became a college coach for the University of San Antonio team for a short time. I also enjoy playing World of Warcraft, Oblivion, and FIFA games.
I spent a year of my life in San Antonio Texas after my time at Rowan and enjoyed a completely new cultural and gastronomical experience that I want to return to some day.

Sophie$50 monthly upfront / $55 pay as you go
I'm studying biology with a minor in chemistry at Drexel (anticipated graduation 2022) and have maintained a 3.82 GPA.
I have tutored for Drexel's chemistry department for a year and tutored informally for friends and family in the years before.
I scored in the 99th percentile on the SAT and 89th percentile on my most recent practice MCAT (100th in the biology/biochemistry section specifically).
I have two cats, Leo after my sister's star sign and Luna after my favorite Harry Potter character.
In my free time, I sing in the chorus and write for the literary magazine at Drexel.
My family and I love to sail - when my siblings and I were kids, our parents homeschooled us for six months so we could take our boat around Europe.

English, Writing, Reading, Language Arts
I graduated from Penn State in May of 2019 with a degree in English.
I tutored prospective and incoming high schoolers for English for more than 2+ years at Penn State.
I have studied all of the theories out there for Shakespeare, and have memorized most, if not all, of his work (quiz me!).
My original major in college was musical theatre, which then turned into playwriting.
I know how to play piano, violin, flute, and am teaching myself how to play the glass harp (my grandmother forced me on the normal harp). I do not have perfect pitch but rather I have relevant perfect pitch.
I have come in second place for spelling bees locally, but have never made it beyond.
