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.
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.
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.
Gail is a skilled tutor and brings a thoughtful and caring approach to reading. She is a natural at bringing in elements of fun into her lessons that have become really engaging for our son. Our son started working with Gail in 3rd grade and was several reading levels behind l. He did not feel confident in his ability, and reading became a real struggle. Working with Gail through a progression of sessions has been such a rewarding and positive experience. Our son has improved in his reading by leaps and bounds, jumping several reading levels over several months. Most importantly he genuinely loves working with Gail, she brings in games and other fun ways to build confidence and aptitude. We have continued to work with Gail, and now our son looks forward to going to the library and reading on his own. Gail has been invaluable in our life and has made reading enjoyable again. I would highly recommend Gail and truly can't say enough good about her or the impact she has made on our family.
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!

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!
