My name is Ryan M. I graduated from Manhattan College in May 2011 with a B.S in mathematics. I have done private tutoring since I graduated high school in 2007, and I even did some private tutoring while in high school in order to maintain membership in the national science honor society. I have tutored a wide variety of subjects, ranging from grade school up to and including college mathematics.
Tutoring has helped me become better at doing mathematics, because it forces me to find new ways of thinking about concepts. It also challenges me to gather my ideas in such a way that I am able to express them in a coherent manner to the student.
Tutoring students from all different ages poses new challenges. Yes, as you progress in the mathematical world, concepts become more involved and abstract. This is the challenge I face while teaching a students at the high school and college level. However, teaching students at the grade school level poses a much different and interesting obstacle. While the concepts may be less involved at that level, I am forced to find adequate language in order to explain these concepts to them.
As of right now I am studying to be an actuary. I have passed exams P/1 and FM/2 and am currently studying for exam MFE.
