HarrietI'm a tutor based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where I enjoy reading, running, and cooking outside of the classroom. I graduated from St. Olaf College with a Bachelor of Arts in Physics and Math. I'm also a licensed teacher in the same fields. I've worked with a variety of students in the St. Paul area, some who were struggling to maintain grade level standards and other who needed extra help for an upcoming AP test. I also spent a semester while in college in India helping students there learn about math and science, as well as helping them prepare to take the SAT. In particular, I really enjoy helping students prepare for standardized tests. I use a method of teaching students how to critically think in order to help students master the material they're struggling with. I believe that students who are capable of thinking critically will be able to teach themselves new concepts in the future, as well as feel confident in the results that they eventually reach. The ability to think critically is applicable in all areas of life, and my hope is that my students will take the skills I teach them with them as they continue on in their educational journey. I hope that I can use these skills to help you excel in your own academic goals.

EricI went to UW - Madison to earn my bachelor's degree in history. My concentrations were European studies and classical studies. I then moved on to the University of Wisconsin Law School, earning my juris doctor. Law and history are my primary subjects, but I've always sought out additional areas of study to become more well-rounded as an academic. I've studied Spanish, math, and the sciences. I believe knowledge is powerful, and I want to learn as much as I can. It can be difficult as an attorney to find the opportunity to give back to your community. Tutoring however is one way I can work with people and help them. I want to share my knowledge with others and show them how to become better learners, which will set them up for success in the real world. When I work with students, I keep things laid-back and use my sense of humor whenever possible, but we are always focused on making progress. My goal is to help students achieve success and reach their goals. In my free time, I enjoy video games, trivia, running, watch movies, playing with my cat, and reading.

BeckiI'm always learning, and I instill in my students the advantages of becoming a lifelong learner. I currently work in marketing for a construction company, and others which opened my eyes to how students feel when they have difficulty learning a subject. I'm always learning new things from my colleagues about the industry. I appreciate the skill sets my colleagues have, and I enjoy working on such varied projects. I come from a family of educators, and I'm comfortable working with students of any age and level of ability. My experience as a tutor and teacher includes ESL training and helping students become better readers. I am looking forward to tutoring students in geography, history, reading, writing, essays, literature, study skills and organization, geography, public speaking, ESL, and related subjects. In my free time, I like to read, travel, write, cook, run, and swim. I also enjoy history, theater, and the arts. I'm always learning new things, and my current goals are to become stronger in HTML and the French language.
