Currently a data scientist in industry and a graduate student at Johns Hopkins.

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 combinatorics and number theory.

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.

Extremely knowledgeable and encouraging

Ryan is definitely a math whiz and is helping me learn discrete math. He has been very patient and encouraging. He works with my schedule and has answered all my questions thoroughly.

Ginger, 1 lesson with Ryan

Knowledgeable and Expert Tutor

He showed me everything I needed for an upcoming exam, and helped me through my study guide prepare thoroughly and showed me everything perfectly. Explaining everything well and took the time to make sure I understood everything.

Amazing

Ryan talked my daughter down from the AP Calc ledge, she is ready for her exam. Ryan helped her to approach problems in different ways and was patient with her. 5*, would recommend.

Andi, 3 lessons with Ryan

Prevented emergence of premature gray hair. Reduced stress immensely.

At the beginning of this quarter, number theory was an enemy of mine. No longer. Thank heavens Ryan is such a patient person who really wants you to learn the material. His explanations are clear and if you don't understand something, he will back track until you reach something you do understand so you can work from there. His enthusiasm and fun stories about math made me excited to learn more. Most importantly, he made me realize I was capable of learning anything. He is a fantastic teacher!

Ryan is fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable

Ryan taught me more then my professor. I am so grateful for his tutoring. Thanks to Ryan I passed my mid term. He went the extra mile to insure my understanding of Discrete mathematics

Thomas, 5 lessons with Ryan

He is simply the best teacher in Number Theory

Ryan is super knowledgeable with the material I presented him to work on. As soon as he reads it, he is able to talk me through it. He is smart, patient and really show passion for helping students. He is the best teacher for discrete math no doubt about it. I have tried a couple of them but Ryan is well above them all.

Very Helpful Review

Great introductory meeting. Now trying to determine which topics to focus on--what would be most useful to review before the semester starts in January. Thanks for your assistance!

James, 1 lesson with Ryan

Straight to the point and knowledgeable

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!

Jasmine, 4 lessons with Ryan

Knowledgeable, kind, and all you could want in a tutor

Ryan has been helping me with material this semester, and there has never been a question or topic that he doesn’t know immediately. He is incredibly smart, easy to communicate with, and does a great job teaching the student. Will definitely use again if I ever have the need

Excellent Tutor

If you are looking for a math tutor, don't look elsewhere! Ryan is the best math tutor I had, and I worked with quite a few tutors. His explanations are clear and consice. He comes up with solutions and good examples quickly. I had three sessions with him so far and each time I had a lot of “aha" moments. I wish I found him sooner. I highly recommend him.
