You can learn how to communicate and express better starting today. Research has proven that the brain acts just like a muscle, physically growing as learners actively engage with it. Just like physical exercise, students can make the most of the time they spend "working out" their minds if they have a guide, coach, and trainer. I would like to be all of these things for you or your student.
I believe in teaching and tutoring skills rather than topics. Every lesson I do and every example I provide will help my students feel immediately as though they have a new tool at their disposal that they can use to reach new heights of understanding and new depths of expression. While I do aim to help all students become immediately successful in the course or concept they are currently studying, my true objective is to foster an understanding and proficiency that will stay with them throughout their lives. My students don't simply make better grades - they become better learners.
I have taught Pre-AP English at the 9th grade level and provided writing coaching and tutoring for all levels of undergraduate college writing. I have a tremendous amounts of various resources which enable me to quickly diagnose and address individual needs for individual students; no two lessons are the same. I have a tremendous interest in all types of literature and an expert understanding of difficult grammar and mechanics issues many students struggle with.
I look forward to helping you become the strongest you can be!
While I may be new to Wyzant, I am not new to tutoring. Hear what previous students have had to say about working with me!
"Ryan M. is a phenomenal tutor. The main reason I say that is because he does not tell you 'no, you're wrong' he inquires you about your work asking questions like 'what do you think needs to be fixed here? Does something look odd to you? Explain to me what you mean by that.' He has you thinking about how you can improve your work, not on how he can improve it for you. Ryan is a wonderful guide in the adventure of learning."
"Mr. Ryan is a very helpful professor and he also motivates me a lot to study. As an international student, I have several grammar, spelling and punctuation problems. Professor Ryan doesn’t fix my mistakes. He teaches me how to see them, and fix them by myself. I enjoy asking him for help because I always learn a lot from him. I would extremely recommend him as a professor to any of my friends."
I am a graduate from the University of Texas at Dallas with a degree in Literature studies with a teacher certification. Beyond that, my experience with all forms of essay writing such as analysis, comparison and contrast, narrative, and especially argument allow me to give assistance with the most challenging assignments students will face. I can provide instruction from an expert level that students of all levels will find accessible and relevant to their particular needs.
My work with hundreds of students on an individual basis over the past two years has given me extensive experience with the complexities of learning English as a Second Language. I can identify the elements that challenge speakers of languages such as use of articles, the difference between count and non-count nouns, subject/verb agreement, and tense, all of which are concepts that are often unique to speakers of other languages but can be easily overlooked by native English speakers. As a tutor and professor at a very diverse college, I have helped students whose primary languages include Arabic, Vietnamese, Indian, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Farsi, and Spanish, as well as many others. My approach to simplifying concepts for all learners has proven results.
I can assist ESL students expertly, and hope to do so for you.
