About Drea


Bio

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...

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 children can learn math. Most students think math is hard and just don't try. Math can be challenging, but most students after a little encouragement are successful. My role as a tutor is to demonstrate different approaches to problems and praise the student to success.

I have helped students in advanced math and science classes ranging from algebra, statistics, and calculus to AP physics and chemistry. However, many of my students have struggled in basic math. If a student is willing to accept my help, the student improves. I am proud that often I help one student in a family, and I am asked a year or two later to come help a younger sibling. My greatest reward is seeing a student go from hating math to understanding difficult concepts.

I look forward to helping your student. Thank you!

Calculus

I have a minor in math with 3 years of calculus courses. The classes covered limits, derivatives, integrals, differential equations, and sequence/series. I have tutored high school and college students in calculus courses. My students have needed help with both single variable and multi-variable calculus classes. Most students need help understanding the different rules (chain rule, product rule, quotient rule) and the relationship between limits, derivatives, and integrals.

Biostatistics,

Biostatistics

I have taken a graduate level biostatistics class in the school of public health at the University of Minnesota. The course covered z-scores, t-tests, hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, and chi tests. Other topics covered were normal distribution, taking a sample of a population, probability of unison and intersections events, and conditional probability.

Organic Chemistry

I took a year of organic chemistry for my minor in chemistry. There were three courses plus three lab courses. Topics covered were naming molecules, creating reactions, stereochemistry, synthesis and reaction with of alkenes, alkynes, alcohols, and ethers. We also covered topics in biochemistry (proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and nucleus acids). I have tutored several students in high school and college level chemistry courses. Most had a chapter on organic chemistry.

Knowledgeable

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.

Joshua, 4 lessons with Drea

Incredibly helpful

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!

Big Help

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

Flexible, patient, and knowledgeable

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!!

Great Tutor

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!!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

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!!

Chemistry help

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, 1 lesson with Drea

Student athlete

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.

Put my Daughter at Ease

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.
