Naturally, this is my best subject to tutor, and I have had success in helping several students in the past. I try to help students see the social relevance of the subject, which is often overlooked in introductory classes, and which helps them to appreciate what they may initially perceive to be a boring and frustrating subject.
Knowledgeable & Patient — I'm taking an accelerated Statistics course and I thought that I could get by without needing any outside tutoring.

I reached out to Ryan and after just half a lesson, the material that seemed so foreign to ...
