Bio

Hi, my name is Ronan. I have a PhD from Stanford, and I've helped many students over the years improve their test scores on the SATs, find their enthusiasm for academic subjects, and not just learn the material, but learn it together in a way that teaches learning techniques. The best way to learn is to be curious and to find something about what you're studying interesting.

Hi, my name is Ronan. I have a PhD from Stanford, and I've helped many students over the years improve their test scores on the SATs, find their enthusiasm for academic subjects, and not just learn the material, but learn it together in a way that teaches learning techniques. The best way to learn is to be curious and to find something about what you're studying interesting.

I love tutoring because it allows for one-on-one exploration of the topic. My style is not instructive - it's about going into the material side by side. We look for the starting place and the next logical move. My students never say "Wow Ronan, you're so good at this!" Instead, it's my goal that they say, "Wow Ronan, I'm so good at this!" or "This is fun!" Because, to be honest, it is fun, and even though it's not cool to think academic work is fun, if you can find enjoyment in it you will succeed.

I got 800 on the SAT Math and SAT II Math. I don't remember my GRE, but also very high. Nevertheless, I don't think people's test scores are good qualifications - it's about teaching the skills, not just having them. My qualifications are the improvements my students have made on their own tests.

I love reading, and I love writing. When I did my PhD, I taught graduate level science courses at Stanford. As part of that, there would be a substantial amount of writing, and I had to work with students a lot on their writing. Writing, at least for non-fiction, is all about simplicity and clarity. It's not about big words or sounding smart, it's about making the topic dead simple.

Let's work together! I would love love to help you on whatever your needs might be! You will improve. You will find you're good at this. You will come to even like it.
