About Ryan


Bio

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...

Classics

I have had extensive classics coursework, specializing in Greece and Ancient Civilizations. This includes 4 semesters of classes in the ancient Greek language, and a variety of classes on ancient Greek and Roman history, religion, and culture. Next semester, I will complete a thesis on Homer, Hesiod, and Aratus.

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.

Knowledgeable and helpful

Number theory tutoring. He went over the definitions and thoroughly helped me with an assignment. He was patient. The blackboard was helpful as well. I plan on having more sessions with him in the future for this course.

Straight to the point and knowledgeable

Ryan made my work too easy lol. By the end of the lesson, I felt like, ohhh, that wasn’t that bad. Usually I can’t find anyone decent to help me as I’m in my last year of undergrad as a mathematics major. Thanks Ryan!

My boy's wicked smart

I was struggling through a difficult time in my senior year of college and had to learn number theory in a compressed time period. Ryan really helped me graduate. He's as patient as he is knowledgeable. I was surprised about how much authority he had over the subject! Phenomenal teacher- 5 stars

Alexander, 20 lessons with Ryan

Simply the Best

During our lesson Ryan and I went through examples and explanations on the exponential distribution and poisson processes. He's been very helpful in understanding the material for my class in computational probability models.

Biology AP

Ryan's Major is Math so my son gets help with AB Calculus AP but He's also great in Biology AP. The last session in Biology AP was really helpful to my son. He's very patience and teaching methods are really good.

Understanding and patient

Ryan helped me to understand the topics and asked questions throughout. What I appreciated most about Ryan was that he understands what it means to be a college student. He worked around my schedule, offered other supplemental information when I was working alone, and was happy to do whatever made me feel most comfortable (i.e. working on homework or study guides or additional practice problems). I would recommend him to anyone in need of help with differential equations because he is very knowledgeable and passionate about the topic.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Ryan was well versed in the subject matter and helped me tremendously. He explained the nuances of the problems and gave them context. I would definitely recommend him.

Gina, 1 lesson with Ryan

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

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.
