Drew grew up in Williamsburg, VA, and moved to CO shortly after graduating from James Madison University with a bachelor’s degree in molecular and cellular biology. He then spent two years teaching skiing in Breckenridge before moving to Denver to pursue a classroom teaching career. Drew worked for several years in DPS, teaching biology in the IB program at George Washington HS as well as physical science in the traditional program. He eventually departed GWIB to join the biology department at DU, his sights set on continuing his teaching career at the college level. It was during this time that he began tutoring students privately, an endeavor that ultimately led to the formation of Peak Learning Solutions. While building Peak’s client base, Drew accepted a one year maternity leave position at Heritage HS teaching chemistry and physical science. Upon completion of this one year obligation, and now ready to commit himself fully to Peak, Drew began tutoring students full time along with the help of some close colleagues from his teaching career. Since that time, Peak has grown from a one man operation to over 30 teachers and multiple office locations. Drew is extremely proud of Peak’s success and the wonderful staff of educational professionals with whom he has the privilege to work. When not working with students, Drew spends his free time surfing, playing soccer, biking, skiing and traveling. He’s also a musician and an avid reader.
