Total loan: $15,000


State College, PA, United States / Education

Sarah's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped me to cover payroll and fixed costs during the COVID-19 shutdown.

Sarah's story

I've loved math for as long as I can remember. I started working as a math tutor for the University of Florida athletic association when I was an undergraduate. Shortly after that, I got a job working for a large group tutoring company where I was giving 3-hour calculus reviews to groups of 50+ students. I am grateful this job gave me the opportunity to work in an entrepreneurial environment. I realized that I was capable of starting my own tutoring company after completing grad school. My incredibly supportive husband agreed to move to State College, PA so I could open LionTutors. He worked to support us as I got the business off the ground. We are still living in State College with our two boys.
