I am a dedicated math tutor who works diligently to help every student succeed. I have experience in tutoring all math levels from elementary math through multivariable calculus. I have worked with students for 15 years and in a direct tutor capacity for 5 years. I have my undergraduate degree in Management Science and Economics from the University of California San Diego and a master's degree in Security Analysis and Portfolio Management from Creighton University graduating Magna Cum Laude.
I have tutored over 500 students in Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus and Statistics. I complete an assessment before working with every student to determine the comfort level with the subject material. From there I customize a development plan to help them ascertain the most important parts of the material. During every session we will tailor and amend the development plan to cover needed areas and to hone in on opportunities for success.
I hold myself to the highest standards when working through a session. I will offer a refund if the student or parent isn't 100% satisfied with my tutoring.
I try to be as flexible with time as possible. I do have a 4 hour cancellation policy, but I do work with students to schedule a makeup session.
I look forward to working with you and help to see the excitement that learning and understanding Math can provide! I am a dedicated math tutor who works diligently to help every student succeed. I have experience in tutoring all math levels from elementary math through multivariable Read more
My daughter was having some trouble with her Calculus 3 class and Ryan was very patient with her. She learned not only how to do the problems but the concepts behind them, and she enjoyed it very much! Ryan is a great tutor and after only one session she said she felt more confident and understood more. We look forward to working more with him!
Always prompt and my daughter enjoys the tutoring. Math is not her favorite subject, but thanks to Ryan, she tolerates it.
My daughter had her first tutoring session with Ryan and it was a very positive experience for her. Ryan was patient and really took the time to explain the problems they were working on together and made sure she understood the material. We have already scheduled another tutoring session with him, I would definitely recommend Ryan!
We had our first lesson with Ryan last night and it went great. He hit the ground running and no time was wasted. He was able to simplify the concepts our daughter was having difficulty with. We are looking forward to additional sessions.
Ryan quickly responded to my question about tutoring my daughter. He arrived to our appointment early and actually stayed a bit after the appointment ended. He spent time in the first session going over the basic principals of AP stats, which I hope will give my daughter a good foundation for this year ahead. We made an appointment for the following week with Ryan.
Ryan really takes the time to make sure you understand what you;re doing. Having a variety of different concepts to learn in such a short amount of time, Ryan was able to simplify everything for me to where I could comprehend it all for an upcoming exam.
This was my very first time in my academic life that I have ever used a tutor. Ryan was awesome. He was very patient with me and knew how to make common sense out of confusing topics. I would highly recommend Ryan. He is very fast to respond to inquires and has a flexible schedule. I was reluctant to bring a stranger into my home but you have no worries with Ryan. He is an honest guy, is friendly, and truly enjoys teaching.
Ryan was so patient and kind. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a tutor. I needed help with my statistics class and there were other tutors who did not want to attempt statistics, but he did and did an amazing job. After he left I felt like I had a firm grasp on what had me completely confused before he arrived. At any time during our session if I said I didn't understand something or didn't get it, even after he had explained, he immediately found a new way to explain it so I would understand. I totally appreciate his efforts and the time he spent tutoring me.
He had a great depth of knowledge, and was able to pull each subject apart and explain everything on a level that was easy to understand.
Ryan jumped in to help our daughter, and his enthusiasm and approach were wonderful. We have been working with a WyzAnt tutor for several months, but he's out of town for a few months. Ryan stepped up and in to save the day. Thank you!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have prepared and studied the actuarial exams FM and P1. I am familiar with probability methods and utilizing risk models. I have posted onto the actuarial outpost website as well as studied in multiple actuarial analysis groups.
I am currently constructing a risk model utilizing SAS to do predictive analytics on cash flows. From there, cash flows from a distressed debt portfolio can be projected out until 108 months utilizing actuarial triangle development factors.
I have tutored Algebra 2 for the past five years, and enjoy helping students learn the content and ascertain greater understanding. I look forward to helping your student learn Algebra 2 and gain a solid understanding of the subject materials.
I have an undergraduate degree in management science and economics and a master's degree in security analysis and portfolio management. I have worked extensively in running bookkeeping and scheduling for a small business. In addition, I have worked as a small business banker helping customers obtain financing and reviewing their business plans. From these experiences I have a strong understanding of the challenges that a business faces and solid quantitative understanding of how a business operates.
I enjoy helping students learn calculus and gain a greater appreciation from the material. I have worked with calculus extensively and I look forward to working with you to help you gain a greater knowledge of calculus!
I have worked with over 20 students on crafting college admission essays and college applications. With each student that I meet with I do a comprehensive analysis of their high school achievements. In the comprehensive analysis we discuss their current course load, extracurricular activities and community service.
From there we review their current SAT scores and compare against the current averages for their: safe school and stretch school choices. If there scores are below school averages we begin planning for test preparation. By taking a holistic approach on all the aspects that go into college counseling, we craft a trajectory so the students can meet their overall goals.
I am versed in both ordinary and partial differential equations. From there I have utilized differential equations for modeling static properties in materials for mechanical engineering. By being able to analyze stress testing utilizing differential equations I can predict the ways materials will react to tension and compression.
In addition, I have also utilized numerical methods with differential equations in finance. One project where this was utilized was in creating a pricing algorithm for the Black-Scholes pricing model. By being able to utilize numerical methods in option pricing I could predict the way that an options pricing might change over time, in both European and American markets.
I have utilized differential by modeling exponential growth studies. One project that I tutored a student in was the effect of Malthusian growth on a population. The student was able to use the growth model to predict the effect of natural and man made limits on population growth and the effect it would have on a city.
I have tutored linear algebra for several students while I was in college and am familiar with utilizing linear algebra with functional analysis. In graduate school I utilized linear algebra for mapping path dependencies for supply chain analysis. In addition, I have utilized Markov Chains to analyze transition state changes and the way objects proceed from one stage to the next.
I have utilized linear algebra in discussing mapping changes from a three dimensional to a two dimensional plane. I have worked with performing linear transformations on a matrix. In mathematical modeling I have utilized linear algebra as an approximation for nonlinear models that are too complex to solve directly.
I have worked with actuarial problems for both the EXAM P and EXAM FM course curriculum. I enjoy working with students in analyzing data and understanding Statistics and helping inferring what the underlying data is showing.
