Since his first day as a peer mentor at Jesuit High School in Carmichael, CA, Drew has been fortunate to play a part in the academic success and growth of countless young men and women. Constantly surprised and excited by the students he meets, Drew enjoys developing individualized learning strategies that not only instill knowledge in his students, but also inspire creativity and imagination toward further education. Valedictorian of his Jesuit High School class of 2012, Drew just recently completed a BS degree at Yale University where he received the Belknap Prize for excellence in biological studies, awarded to one senior in his major each year for academic excellence.
Returning home to Sacramento while he applies for medical school, Drew is thrilled to be a part of the ESM team, working with students to achieve their academic goals and expand their aspirations for future achievement. When it comes to school, Drew thinks that science is definitively the coolest thing in the universe. He is amazed by the complex beauty of our world and relishes the chance to share an understanding of that beauty with students. Drew finds real world examples that make science relevant, interesting, and compelling. Though biology is his favorite subject, Drew also excels in teaching chemistry, physics, mathematics, ACT/SAT prep, English, and anything his students might be enthusiastic to learn.
When not teaching, Drew is a fanatical Sacramento Kings supporter with a decent jump shot of his own. He loves singing and performed with an all-male a cappella group for three years while at Yale. Drew also enjoys trivia, movies, the great outdoors, and spending time with friends and family.
