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.

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.

Great lesson.

Drea was very helpful in preparing my daughter for a biology test. She explained concepts in simple terms. She was very friendly, and I would highly recommend Drea as a tutor.

Edward, 1 lesson with Drea

multi-help

Such a big help, she is able to help with several topics and we are getting good results. My son has responded well and feels comfortable with his sessions.

awesome prepared

Drea comes prepared every session. She nudges my daughter to submit questions prior to meetings. This promotes responsibility and encourages accountability. I am very appreciative.

Amazing Tutor

Drea has been a huge help to my son. She has been flexible, attentive, knowledgeable and so kind. It's been amazing working with her. It's really been the push he needed to wrap up the remainder of the year.

Chemistry help for son

Drea helped my 6th grade son with his homework and was very patient and helpful. She was also available on short notice on a Sunday. Thank you for your assistance!

Doug, 1 lesson with Drea

So helpful and on short notice!

Drea was able to do a tutoring session with my daughter the same day as our request. She helped my daughter to understand a concept she's been struggling with and as a result, my daughter was able to improve her grade tremendously!

Great Tutor

Drea is working with my son. My son is a senior in high school and working on Statistics. Drea is the best . She is patient, knowledgeable and goes over and above my expectations. Would recommend to anyone Ron G - Chicago

Very knowledgeable

I am in the 10th grade. I was struggling in chemistry due to the limited instructions received in virtual/remote learning. Mrs. Drea helped me to understand my lessons better. She was very patient and extremely knowledgeable.

Amazing physics tutor!!!!

My daughter has had several tutoring sessions with Drea for Ap physics and we cannot day enough about her. She is knowledgeable and patient, and is excellent at breaking down concepts in a way that is easy to understand. We are so grateful to have found her and for all of her help and support.
