Red grew up in Buck County, Pennsylvania as one of eight siblings. From a very early age, Red was either helping or being helped with schoolwork. This was Red’s introduction to tutoring.
Always curious about the world around them, Red studied Earth Science and Policy and received a Bachelor of Science at Penn State University, gaining expertise and confidence in many areas of math, chemistry, geology — as well as written and verbal communications.
Red has always enjoyed learning and teaching, especially after they saw other students around them struggling — so they decided to do something about that.
During Red’s four years working at the Penn State Learning Center, they tutored hundreds of fellow students. They also served as a student representative to the Penn State Faculty Senate, where they often presented student interests to the university.
In addition, Red worked for six months at a living-and-learning organic farm and conservancy in Puerto Rico, where they introduced children to STEM-related conservation and work as part of an afterschool program.
They are currently completing their master’s degree in Sustainable Food Systems at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
Red enjoys helping the next generation of writers, scientists, engineers, and other vibrant peopleachieve their academic and professional dreams.
