The LINN Companies, is a growing, family-owned automotive business starting with a lot of hard work and determination. Its origins can be traced back nearly 50 years to when the founder, Clarence Linn and his wife Marion, made a bold move from the small-town of Watkins, Minnesota to temporarily reside with Clarence’s sister in Cottage Grove. For nearly three years, as the newlyweds tried to become established financially, Clarence worked odd jobs, including a job at a small independent Standard Oil service station. Although struggles were apparent, it was Clarence’s long heritage to an early culture of business ethics, innovation, and leadership that have become instilled traits for continued success.In 1963, Standard Oil confronted Clarence with perhaps the greatest challenge to his existence. Standard Oil was building a new service station in Cottage Grove and they selected Clarence to manage the location. After only several months, Standard Oil made Clarence an offer to become an independent dealer and take ownership of the business he had already begun to build. Clarence’s small service station quickly grew to be amongst the top performing Standard Oil stations in Minnesota.In 1972, Standard Oil, which soon after became Amoco and later BP, offered Clarence the rights for yet another station to be built in nearby Woodbury. Again Clarence’s business grew, but this time much quicker than even he knew possible. By the early 1980′s, the Woodbury site had grown to be the highest gasoline volume Amoco in Minnesota. Today after being converted to a BP in 2003, and rebuilt in 2009, Woodbury BP remains as a clear leader among Minnesota’s BP stations.

In the early 1980′s the company was positioned for growth. Clarence’s son, Stephen, was emerging with an interest to establish the needs of the future for the company as he worked into the role of President and later became CEO. Shortly thereafter, another son, Jeffery, worked into his current responsibilities as Vice President. In 1996, Amy Dumonceaux, Clarence’s youngest daughter, emerged as an area supervisor and became the Human Resource Manager in 2000. Following Clarence’s retirement in 1991, the company began to expand into multiple BP sites, Holiday Station Stores, Goodyear Dealerships, NAPA Auto Parts locations and coin operated Laundromats. As a leader in automotive related businesses since 1964, The LINN Companies continues to pride itself on the accomplishments of each business individually.

In 2004, The Company trademarked the name Paramount Auto Service, which allowed all five Goodyear locations to be under one common dealer identity. Paramount Auto Service continues to distinguish the company’s Goodyear locations as a step above the rest as we become one of Goodyear’s largest Minnesota dealers.

Today, The LINN Companies employs nearly 300 employees, operates 18 retail locations and owns and manages 26 commercial properties. Even in these new and often turbulent markets, one of The LINN Companies traits remains constant-“Growth is only possible by treating each individual customer and the employees of the company with professionalism, honesty and respect, “says company CEO, Stephen Linn. This sense of pride and commitment within The LINN Companies clearly is what makes the difference.

Roberta Ziegler is the Owner/Operator for Tutor Doctor of Minneapolis. She was initially drawn to Tutor Doctor’s commitment and values when helping students attain their goals and build self-confidence.

Roberta believes that her one-to-one in-home tutoring is the most beneficial method to maximize results. Parents also have one less event to coordinate in their busy lives and this tutoring service saves them time while coordinating with their schedule and availability.

Tutor Doctor’s free in-home consultation takes the time to understand the student’s areas of concern, learning style and ability. Following the consultation we find the ‘magical match’ with the most suitable tutor who will work best with the student.

Roberta’s vision is to continue building a business that is known for quality and success while helping students of all grades reach their full potential.
Roberta Ziegler with her husband, John, and their 2 children have resided in Coon Rapids for 14 years. Throughout this time, Roberta and her family have been strong supporters and volunteers within Coon Rapids and the Minneapolis metro area. They possess a strong sense of “giving back”. The opportunity to enhance a student’s self-esteem while improving study skills and grades, led Roberta to become a local owner of Tutor Doctor.

Tutor Doctor is a one-to-one, in home tutoring service. Most parents can relate to the many evenings spent at the kitchen table helping their students do math, reading, spelling, or writing papers. Roberta realized, through her own experience, that there is a need for supplemental education. After meeting and talking with families, Roberta is able to magically match students with qualified tutors based on, not just academic subjects, but the student’s attributes. Tutor Doctor tutors are not just teachers but mentors.

We offer tutoring for Home school support, K-12, College Learners, ACT/SAT test prep, Special Needs Students, Languages Studies, ESL, and Summer Programs. Our tutors work with the students on current curriculum while filling in the missing building blocks, or learning gaps.

• Tutor Doctor MN has been recognized by local residents as “Best Tutoring Program” for the Best of Anoka County!!
• Tutor Doctor MN has been recognized by Blaine and Spring Lake Park Reader’s Choice Award
• Tutor Doctor MN was recognized by local Moms and Macaroni Kid for the Family Choice Award in the categories of TUTORING / LEARNING CENTER
