About Ryan

I have a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in philosophy, and I have taught introductory logic and introductory ethics courses. I am currently a doctoral student in philosophy at the University of California-San Diego, where I am a graduate teaching assistant for introductory philosophy courses and humanities courses. I have also tutored several WyzAnt students in logic and moral philosophy. So I am very well-qualified to tutor logic, ethics, and other philosophy classes. I also used to teach GRE classes for the Princeton Review and have tutored several Wyzant students for the GRE, so I am well-qualified to help people prepare for the GRE. Finally, I have tutored WyzAnt students in algebra before, and there is a lot of algebra on the GRE. So I am qualified to tutor algebra 2 and anything below that. I have a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in philosophy, and I have taught introductory logic and introductory ethics courses. I am currently a doctoral student in philosophy at the University of California-San Diego, where Read more

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

GRE

I have taught many GRE courses for the Princeton Review, and I have helped many Wyzant students prepare for the GRE. Some students I have helped with every section of the GRE, while others have only wanted help with the math portion.

Logic

I have taken 2 undergraduate logic courses, and 1 undergraduate/graduate course in logic and its metatheory. I have also taught my own introductory logic course (at Michigan State University).

Philosophy

I have a bachelor's degree in philosophy from the University of Kansas, a master's degree in philosophy from Michigan State University, and I'm currently a doctoral student in philosophy at the University of California San Diego. I have also taught my own introductory logic and ethics courses, and I have been tutoring philosophy (ethics and/or logic) for the past 4 years (and before that I was an ethics tutor for 2 years for the University of Kansas Athletic Department).

Writing

As a current doctoral student in philosophy, and as one who has a master's degree in that same area, I have years of experience with both writing my own papers and offering constructive feedback on undergraduate papers (both philosophy papers and humanities papers). Also, last summer I placed in the 2nd Annual E. Maynard Adams essay competition sponsored by the Taylor Charitable Trust.
