My name is Ryan and I am a current Dental student at the Midwestern University school of dentistry. I believe my job as an educator is to not only present material and aide in the learning process, but also to motivate my students to want to learn. I try and do this by making the material relevant to my students. I believe that through experiential learning and situational problem solving, optimal retention of material is achieved. I also make a concerted effort to break down complex ideas into manageable and understandable concepts which can be more easily retained/recalled.

I have experience tutoring individuals at the Junior/Sr High school and undergraduate level. I started tutoring because I found the best way for myself to become totally comfortable with material was to explain it to others. At the undergraduate level I had the opportunity to not only tutor one on one, but to lead review sessions which were attended by numerous individuals.

When first meeting with students I like to dedicate some time getting to know them and assessing their learning style. Usually, I am able to curtail my sessions in accordance to the students specific needs. Having recently completed my undergraduate coursework, I feel as though I have a unique insight into what works in terms of optimal short term (test) and long term (life) material retention. I graduated from Adelphi University with a BS in Biology and minored in Forensic anthropology. I also played competitive baseball and have some experience helping train athletes and improving baseball related mechanics.
