About Ryan

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Chemistry from Georgetown University, where I am studying biomedically-applicative nanomaterials and computational characterization. I graduated with a B.S. in Chemistry and a minor in Biology from Boston College.

I have previous experience tutoring chemistry, biology and the GRE in college. I have also been employed to assist in editing procedures for experiments conducted in the undergraduate teaching laboratories at Boston College. Additionally, I have created and taught courses in introductory chemistry and quantum mechanics to gifted middle and high school students, which include lecture, discussion-based and experimental learning techniques.

At Boston College, I conducted research in Theoretical and Computational Physical Chemistry and Biophysics, and was awarded three fellowships for my research.

I absolutely love teaching, whether or not the material comes naturally to the student. I enjoy working with all types of students, whether they are learning the basics in science and math, are in honors, studying for the AP exam or need help with college material.

Due to my schedule as a graduate student, I am limited to only having lessons on campus at Georgetown University.

I hope to hear from you and I look forward to help more students on their educational journeys!

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.

Biology

As a Biology minor and someone who conducts research in Biophysics, my knowledge of the subject is quite extensive. By asking tough questions while going over the material, as well as by giving quizzes that will simulate harder problems a professor or teacher may ask, I have found that students not only understand the core of the material better, but also are able to think more critically about extensions of biological systems.

Chemistry

I hold a B.S. in chemistry from Boston College and am currently a Ph.D. student at Georgetown University, where I focus on researching biomedically-applicative nanomaterials and computational characterization. During my time studying at Boston College, I completed research in Theoretical and Computational Physical Chemistry, while having been awarded several Undergraduate Research Fellowships. I have worked with the Boston College Chemistry Department on fine-tuning and creating new experiments to be completed in the undergraduate teaching labs. I am a teaching assistant for Organic Chemistry, and have tutored a variety of students in chemistry over the past several years.

GRE

I am well-versed in the strategies and format of the GRE. I begin by teaching the basic formats of each section and tricks to know in order to successfully and quickly answer the questions. I then work with the student through repetition and clarification of confusing questions and topics.

I also tutor those interested in the Chemistry Subject GRE.

Mathematica

Mathematica is a platform I have used frequently in coordination with my research in Theoretical and Computational Biophysics and Physical Chemistry. I have experience not only in utilizing mathematica for advanced scientific topics, but also teaching others in how to use mathematica.

MATLAB

MATLAB is an integral part of research in Theoretical and Computational Biophysics and Physical Chemistry. I have experience testing theoretical equations used to model data, as well as for plotting and evaluating correlations between experimental data and theory.

Organic Chemistry

I graduated from Boston College with a B.S. in chemistry, which included coursework in organic chemistry. I am currently working towards a PhD in chemistry at Georgetown University, where I am a teaching assistant for organic chemistry.

Great

Excellent. My son had the lesson with Ryan. He says he wishes Ryan were his chemistry teacher instead. He said it made a huge difference and he understood everything so much better. Ryan even sent him some extra practice questions afterwards to help. Definitely worth the money.
