The Excel Difference
At Excel Tutoring, we strive to be more than just a tutor. We have been told by many families that our tutors act more as coaches for students. Our tutors seek to develop a personal relationship with you and your family as we guide you through the college admissions process. From phone calls and emails to keep you, the parents, up to date to texts between tutor and student, maintaining open lines of communication is top priority. When you choose to become part of the Excel family, your student's success and our success become inextricably linked. Excel Tutors will fight for that success and teach your student how to fight for success as well! We regularly hear that Excel alumni are doing so well in college because of the skills they learned at Excel!
At Excel Tutoring, we never take a one-size-fits-all approach to tutoring. While other companies go through a one-size-fits-all curriculum, Excel tailors each lesson plan to your student's unique learning style. Each student's experience is unique and customized based on their goals, needs, and strengths. Our goal is to do whatever it takes to get the most points in the least amount of session time.
Your Personal College Admissions Concierge
Excel's exceptional tutors will take your family by the hand and lead you through the stressful and confusing test prep and college admissions process. Sleep easy knowing that your child's future is in the hands of not just some of the best educators in the Twin Cities but also adults who truly care about your student's long-term success. We happily take hour-long midnight phone calls from panicked mothers. No questions is stupid. No concern is unwarranted. Our goal is to turn what can be horribly stressful into a breeze for you!

Excel gave my son confidence...[and] taught him how to organize information into a clear study guide. As he left for his final, he told me finally he felt prepared!
— Parent, Minnetonka High School Sophomore
I am certainly a fan of Erin and would strongly recommend her to other students who want to obtain great scores on the ACT or SAT.
— W. Khan, M.D., Parent of Woodlands High School Senior
Approaching the ACT, I was stressed, but Erin made this entire process a million times better. From ACT to SAT Subject Tests, I saw vast improvements across the board.
- Charlie, Student, Princeton University Class of 2019
Not only was Erin a huge help getting accommodations for my test, but my score went from a 14 to a 22 on my first test after working with her!
