I have tutored math and science since college. For 4 years, my part time job in college was a teaching assistant at University of Minnesota in General College's Math Center. Also, I worked in Math Special Projects and the Astronomy department as a teaching assistant. After graduation, I was employed as a teacher at Sylvan Learning Center. This was a great opportunity until I decided to start my own tutor business. Tutoring has been my part time business for 10 years.

My philosophy is all c...
My daughter has had several tutoring sessions with Drea for Ap physics and we cannot day enough about her. She is knowledgeable and patient, and is excellent at breaking down concepts in a way that is easy to understand. We are so grateful to have found her and for all of her help and support.

Drea was able to step in at the last minute to help my daughter prepare for her college chemistry final during distance learning; a difficult environment for many students. She was the only person I could find who was able to tutor her in both bio and organic chemistry, and I looked at many! She was very helpful and knowledgeable. My daughter really appreciated her ability to explain things clearly. Would definitely recommend and thanks Drea for helping us out of a tight spot!

She teaches my daughter geometry for a sophomore class. She likes her and my daughter is improving in the class. We will keep using her for as long as she needs her help

Drea is amazing!! During my first tutoring session with her, she was willing to spend an extra hour with me and help me out with my chemistry homework, seeing as I definitely needed the help. Keep in mind that I also reached out to her VERY short notice and she got back to me so quickly that I was able to get in the same day. She was also very kind and patient with me, she never once was frustrated and took her time explaining the problems to me. She simplified a lot of concepts and was able to explain all of the things in my Intro to Chemistry class that I could not understand. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling with chemistry, she really helps you with the problems and outlines what you need more work on. Because of Drea, I feel much more confident for my chemistry test than I was before our session. Thank you!!!

Drea was very patient and knowledgeable My son felt very comfortable with her. I feel very confident that she will continue to be a wonderful tutor for my son.

My daughter improved her grade from an F to a B. I cannot be thank fil enough to Drea. It?s amazing what a session can accomplish within just one day of tutoring in one hour!

Drea was available last minute for online chemistry session night before test. She was big help and worth the money. We would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you

We found Drea when my son was taking Advanced Chemistry in High School. He was struggling and needed help. She is wonderful. We continued to use Drea throughout the next 2 years. She helped him with AP Biology,physics,math 3 and calculus. She is patient and very flexible with scheduling. I am so thankful that we found her. My son had always struggled with math and she definitely made a difference. My son just graduated from high school and had to take a math placement test for college. He got an A and tested into the class he was hoping for.

Drea very effectively helped me get a lot of Algebra exercises done in a short time while teaching me the concepts. She replied quickly, too, which was key to me because I needed help on the same day. I feel more confident that I am capable of learning not only because of what we accomplished together but also because I was able to follow along my professor?s lecture that covered new material. I was falling behind in my College Algebra class and was afraid I would either fail the class or withdraw from it but that doesn?t cross my mind anymore. Best investment I made. Private tutoring can be expensive for a student but failing or withdrawing would cost me so much more in time and money. I am now pretty much caught up with the material and won?t think twice in getting another tutoring session with Drea if I ever need help with math again. Thank you so much for what you do, Drea!!

Physics is proving to be extremely difficult for me as an adult learner going back. But my tutor made me feel at ease. Drea was patient and very knowledgeable of the subject. Already booked my next session!!

Drea has been a wonderful tutor to my daughter. She has helped her get back to A in Calc AB/BC. She has always made it even when the weather is bad. I am glad we found her!!

Drea helped me review for my semester exam. I showed up with many questions - she answered all of them, helped me see where I was going astray and offered several helpful suggestions for things to watch for during the exam.

Drea helped my son with understanding Chemistry - reactions specifically. Unfortunately his teacher's teaching style and my son's learning style are not in sync. She was able to help him work through his homework in a way that he's now remembering and applying the steps and it's making sense.
- Lynnette G. from Minneapolis, MN
My son is an amazing athlete, but not the most amazing student. He has a 2.5 GPA. He struggles with math and English. He is not an easy person to tutor because he is so distracted by his phone. He seems to like Drea very much. I appreciate that she tutored at at U of M general college. I feel she is a really good fit for student athletes. I highly recommend.
- Tammy W. from Minneapolis, MN
My daughter has math anxiety. Drea put my daughter at ease and explained things so my daughter could understand. After the lesson my daughter actually spoke about PreCalc with me, she normally won't speak about any of her classes with me.
- Jeffery H. from Saint Paul, MN
She really helps break down topics so they?re easier to understand...which is no easy feat with organic chemistry. I leave each session confident about the material!
- Rochelle S. from Minneapolis, MN
Drea has been wonderful for my 9th grade son, helping him in both geometry and physics. We started with her when I noticed my son's usual B+ math grade had slipped to C, he just wasn't understanding the material as taught by his private school teacher. Immediately after starting 2x a week, his grade is at 89%, almost A-! Since physics is so much math, she's been helping him with that as well, coming extra last minute hours here and there for tests, and working around our last minute schedule changes. We couldn't be happier and Intend/hope to have her next year too!

It's important to remind our kids that tutoring isn't a bad thing. Sometimes, I think it gets a bad reputation, but really, even A and B students benefit from tutoring. Hearing something taught from a different perspective can really help a student get over any 'humps' they might be having in a particular section or lesson from any number of subjects. Drea has helped my kids do just that. She's a great asset to have in our educational toolbox.

Drea continues to assist my sophomore daughter in learning Algebra 2 and Chemistry. My daughter missed important curriculum at the beginning of the semester due to absences and has struggled with comprehension and testing. After a few weeks, Drea has helped my daughter get back on track. My daughter took her first test since the tutoring began and she earned an A-. Overall Drea stays on task, is kind, thorough and has enhanced my daughter's confidence in all her STEM courses.
- Kendra M. from Chaska, MN
Drea is a great tutor!! I have been going to her for Ochem this whole year and I would highly recommend her. She explains things very well and is very flexible.
