Daniel did an amazing job with my son's ACT. For my son's first practice ACT test, he got a 13. He was historically poor in test-taking and math. We signed up with Daniel for twenty 2-hour sessions over a semester. After all of the tutoring, my son scored a 20 on his ACT test! Incredible.
So far, so good. Lauri has had one math tutoring session so far with my middle-school-age daughter, and I was impressed by her patience and enthusiasm in explaining math concepts. Really looking forward to working with her more!
Excellent Test Prep Thomas did a great job of preparing me for the MCAs in both reading and math. The strategies he explained made a lot of sense, and taking the test just felt easier than it had before. I was much more confident after he helped me prepare.
Carrie helped me revise my resume and cover letter for a leadership position in a Minneapolis high school. As a result, I was chosen for the final selection round. I highly recommend Carrie as a writing coach.
Viking Tutors is an excellent tutoring service. My daughter used the online help service for an advanced college calculus course and the instruction was outstanding. The lessons were always on time and very helpful. The prices were very reasonable and I would certainly recommend the service.
Jake was extremely responsive and scheduled time right away to meet with my son to help him prep for the ACT. Would definitely recommend Jake to anyone for tutoring.
I was out of school for several years and Nancy helped me to become proficient in algebra in preparation for college algebra, I am currently a graduate student and feel Nancy was a pivitol part in helping me establish a firm base to build upon. She was kind and patient, which was very helpful.
My son has been tutoring with Amy since June 2013. His teachers has seen great improvement...he is no longer that stress when it comes to him doing his homework. I would recommend Amy to anyone, my son looks forward to meeting up with her for his sessions. She is very professional, and also flexible. So glad that I chose her to work with my son!!!
I have known Michelle for many years and can attest to her integrity and her excellence as a person and as a student. although I have not used her tutorial services, I know she is articulate and perceptive when analyzing a misunderstanding.
Katy was the perfect person for our family! She helped my son Dane with his reading skills through 2nd and 3rd grade. We've worked with other tutors before but Dane is a very shy boy and doesn't like to open up much with strangers. This was not the case at all with Katy, he worked with her like she was his own mother. She got Dane all caught up with his classmates and ahead of them very quick, I couldn't believe the results!
Daniel was very flexible to our schedule and offered a personalized lesson plan to suit our needs. I highly recommend him.
Working with Marilyn was easy she gave me lots of options for what we needed. she just turned on my questions and responded timely to all of them. We were set up with a tutor that matches my daughter. And so far my daughter is enjoying going Th tutoring.

Lots of writing experience, formal education through 1 year of graduate school at University of Iowa Playwriting Workshop; BA from University of Wisconsin at Green Bay, English and the Humanities with emphasis on Creative Writing. Last year I edited the thesis of a 2013 graduate of Hamline University, who received an MFA in Creative Nonfiction. I'm an avid reader, I love The New Yorker and am able to work especially with teens, as I love my nieces and the time we spend together at school functions, mostly performances of plays and poetry slams, also Poetry Out Loud competitions. Striving to avoid intimidation, in tutoring, I'm learning so much myself. And excited to find work that's this rewarding!
