About Drea

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!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

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.

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.

Chemistry

I have a minor in chemistry and have been tutoring for 10 years. Most years, I have one to three students who need help in chemistry.

Linear Algebra

I have a minor in mathematics. I took two years of calculus both single and multivariable. I also completed an additional year of math higher level math. I have helped students at all levels of math.

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.

Drea is amazing!

Drea is amazing! My usual tutor cancelled the day of our session, and I really needed a tutor because I had an exam the next day. I contacted Drea only a couple hours in advance, and she was willing to meet with me that night! She is really good at explaining concepts. She encouraged me and told me when I did things right. She gave me confidence for my exam the next day. I highly recommend Drea, a
