Math (All levels)



Qualifications

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).

Fun Facts

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.
