What should I know about UpGrade Tutoring (UGT)?

"Who runs this business?"

Grant Elledge is a PSU Chemical Engineering alum, who heads a team of tutors each with years of experience tutoring MATH, ESL, CHEM, PHYS, STAT, CMPSC, E MCH, ECON, and/or test prep.

"I don't need tutoring."

Most of our students don't — but your GPA is a valuable asset. And what if tutoring could get you back to what you want to do, faster?

"What do you do?"

We teach, plain and simple. You'll be equipped to succeed in your current class, and truly learning the material will help you ace classes down the road.

"Tutoring is expensive."

Check out our rates! Small groups make tutoring accessible to everyone. We are committed to helping you succeed, no matter what!

What happens if I get connected with a tutor?

"What does tutoring look like?"

You'll meet your tutor in the office by appointment and decide together what will best help you succeed. You can come anytime there's space and do work in the office, too!

"Where's the office?"

UGT is located at 111 Sowers St, Suite 504. From the McDonald's on College Ave, walk downtown half a block. Head through the circular doorway just past Are U Hungry and up to the 5th floor.
