I am an honors math and classics double major, who loves both history and analytical material. I have several years of tutoring experience at all levels, from elementary school through college. Over the years I have acquired a large bag of useful teaching tools, and I try to work hard to breathe life into the material, with exciting mathematical applications and fun historical anecdotes. For struggling students, I am exceptionally patient, and will work to make sure you can finally understand a tricky subject. For advanced students, I have many interesting projects and digressions to help you grow.

My personal mathematical interests are in modular forms, special functions, and number theory. Historically, I am interested in Homer and Hesiod.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I completed my universities' honors math sequence, which covered linear algebra, differential equations, and vector calculus from a unified viewpoint. Subsequently, I have completed more advanced coursework which uses differential equations as a prerequisite, such as Modular Forms. Furthermore, I have experience tutoring to fellow college students in differential equations on an informal a basis.
Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I completed a course in discrete mathematics, with an eye towards applications in computer science. Furthermore, I have research experience with discrete mathematics, specifically in the subsection of Lattice Path Combinatorics, and presented as part of a team at the 2016 Joint Mathematics Meetings in Atlanta.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

A couple of years ago, I audited a course on linear algebra and differential equations. This year, I took an honors math class which covered rigorous multivariable calculus with heavy linear algebra. Additionally, I worked in a research group on stochastic processes, which involved a ton of work with transition matrices and their eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

Makes calculus easy and interesting

Ryan is knowledgeable & passionate about math, and it translates into excellent explanation of the material. He explains HOW calculus works rather than just focusing on solving problems.

Klaudia, 3 lessons with Ryan

Knowledgeable and very patient tutor

Ryan taught AP Calculus AB and he's got really great teaching skills. My son finally understands how to work problems and he took a quiz today and amazingly he did excellent in it.

Farzaan, 4 lessons with Ryan

He has extensive knowledge and miles of patience

Ryan has a great work ethic. He truly cares about helping you master the material. In one case, I wanted to tackle the same problem multiple times and with different strategies. He was more than happy to do that with me.

Ardi, 7 lessons with Ryan

He is a great guy! Would recommend!

Ryan was super helpful and made sure our client understood the concepts and techniques of Calculus. He was very thorough and thoughtful. He went into depth about concepts our client was learning and was very intelligent about them.

Kacy, 1 lesson with Ryan

Really helpful!

Ryan has helped me understand concepts I've been struggling with for days in less than 20 minutes! Always gives an explanation for everything and does a lot of practice!

Montse, 6 lessons with Ryan

Excellent, highly recommend!

Ryan is a true expert in discrete math. His specialty is combinatorics and that's where I need the most help. I often feel bad about not understanding something but Ryan makes me feel good. He's very empathetic, and will go over what puzzles you in different ways for as long as it takes until you understand it. He also will help me understand why the (incredibly complicated) math I am learning is useful in the real – which helps keep me motivated.

Sam, 22 lessons with Ryan

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

I had a lot of issues with solving Discrete math problems and he really helped explain the concepts and patiently went over the problems and proofs I had trouble with. He is a wonderful tutor.

Krishna, 4 lessons with Ryan

Knowledgeable and has a knack for teaching!

Ryan is amazing. He explained proof by induction in a way I understood it, and helped me through several examples. He’s very kind and patient, and seems like a natural teacher. He provided guidance, taught me the long way and then a shortcut, and really helped boost my confidence with his positive reinforcement. Yesterday I was convinced I was going to fail this class, but now I know with Ryan’s help I’ll definitely be able to succeed. I look forward to working with him again.

Amy, 4 lessons with Ryan

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!

I am a new grad student and it has been quite awhile since I have taken a linear algebra, logic, or any upper division level math class. He made the concepts very approachable and I feel confident about moving forward with my assignments. I’m looking forward to working with him again soon!

FreEtta, 7 lessons with Ryan

Great Tutor!

Ryan helped me out with College Algebra and did a great job helping me prepare for my exams and teaching me easier and more efficient ways to solve problems. 10/10 would recommend.
