We work with students in Minnesota’s award-winning public schools and private college prep schools.

Some students are already high achievers who want to boost their GPA or ACT/SAT score, or want to improve their organization and study habits. Other students need subject-specific help, need help catching up to grade-level, or need help studying to pass a test.

Yes! Our private, in-home tutors will drive to your home in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and all of the surrounding suburbs in the Twin Cities metro area. Wherever your home is in the Twin Cities, we have a tutor near you.

We serve all first-ring Minneapolis/St. Paul suburbs, such as Edina, St. Louis Park, Golden Valley, Falcon Heights and Mendota Heights.

We also serve all Minneapolis/St. Paul second-ring suburbs, such as Minnetonka, Wayzata, Orono, Mounds View, Woodbury, White Bear Lake, Inver Grove Heights, Eden Prairie, Bloomington, Lakeville, Eagan, and Stillwater.

Our individualized approach is based on how each student learns, studies, and retains knowledge. We recognize that every student learns and advances differently, a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work for everybody.

Our highly experienced local Twin Cities tutors recognize and implement the best approach for your student.

Through a detailed conversation with your family, we learn about a student’s needs, challenges, goals, personality, study habits, and other details.

We then identify a tutor who will be the most ideal match based on these criteria. A good fit is essential and a critical component in helping students reach their full potential. Learn more about our tutoring approach.

This ensures a comfortable, familiar setting that’s conducive to learning. This also saves parents and the time and inconvenience of driving to a facility.

Our tutors also have flexible schedules to meet students’ active lifestyles. For students who prefer, tutors can also meet in local libraries.

Parents play a key role in helping their students succeed. Tutors communicate regularly with parents to make sure everyone is on the same page.

We customize a timeline and schedule with each student based on needs and deadlines. Oftentimes, three hours of tutoring each week helps students improve their learning and their grades.

Students seeking to improve their ACT or SAT scores with only six to eight weeks before the test may need to meet more frequently.

There’s never a bad time to help your student become more successful. We prefer to work with students before they are failing a class and at least two months before an ACT or SAT test.

We also work with students over summer break to help them improve their study habits and prepare for the upcoming school year.

Every student learns differently and at a different pace. We cannot guarantee specific results. In fact, no reputable tutoring or learning business will.

What you can expect is to see our tutors chart a path for individual students that empowers them to reach their highest level of academic achievement.

No. We’re a small business, owned and operated exclusively in the Twin Cities for over 20 years.

Most of our Minneapolis and St. Paul tutors are local teachers, M.Ed. and Ph.D. holders, and/or industry professionals. Read our story.

We can discuss pricing when you call us. During our consultation, we’ll discuss our costs and explain how we can help your student become confident, independent, and empowered to reach their highest level of academic success.
