Viking Tutors is led in Minnesota by Mark Skoskiewicz, Founder of MyGuru.  Founded in Chicago on Northwestern University's campus in 2009, we began offering tutoring in Minnesota in 2011. In 2014, MyGuru purchased Viking Tutors. We are in the process of rebranding our Minneapolis presence to Viking Tutors, a MyGuru company.

We serve the entire Minneapolis-St.Paul Metropolitan area, so whether your're a high school parent looking to get help for your struggling freshman or a graduate student at the University of Minnesota preparing for an important final exam, we look forward to hearing from you.
