About Ryan

I received two master's degrees and my bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. My degrees are in mathematics and in computer science. While earning my master's degrees, I spent a year as a teaching assistant for a discrete mathematics course and a theoretical computer science course.
After graduating, among other software engineering jobs, I worked as a software engineer at Facebook for 4 years. At Facebook, I focused on writing c++ code for the search back-end and for another internal back-end service. I mentored 3 summer interns during my time at Facebook, and after I'd been at Facebook for a couple of years, I helped to mentor more junior engineers.
Since I left Facebook, I have spent a large amount of time learning about and researching machine learning techniques. The majority of the time I've spent recently on machine learning has focused on neural networks. I've also participated in a few Kaggle competitions and I am happy to help people new to data science get started.

I have master's degrees in mathematics and in computer science (two master's degrees) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

I have an extremely flexible schedule and I love both computer science and mathematics. I am excited to help people new to either field or people looking to get a different perspective on something they might be struggling with, so I look forward to working together!

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.

C++

I worked as a software developer at Facebook for just under 4 years. In my time at Facebook, more than half of my time spent coding was writing C++. I also performed code reviews on other engineers who wrote c++.

Computer Programming

I have a master's degree in computer science from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. I have more than 5 years of professional software development experience, including nearly 4 years as a software developer at Facebook. I have written code for entire production quality systems.

Computer Science

I have both a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in computer science, both from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. I have continued self-studying computer science since graduating, and I have 5 years of software development experience, including nearly 4 years at Facebook.

Discrete Math

I have master's degrees in mathematics and in computer science from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. During my time as a graduate student, I was a teaching assistant for a computer science course focusing on discrete mathematics. I also took a number of graduate level combinatorics courses (at least 3).

Linear Algebra

I took a college level course in linear algebra while I was an undergraduate student at UIUC. I received a grade of A. Since then, I have used linear algebra extensively in my studies of statistics and machine learning. Linear algebra is one of the most basic building blocks for machine learning and statistics, and I use it regularly.

Python

During my nearly 4 years a software developer, I wrote a substantial amount of python code to manage the deployment of massively scaled back-ends. The python scripts were responsible for deploying services and distributing multiple terabytes of index files to back-end servers. Since leaving Facebook, I have worked on some machine learning code using the python scientific computing libraries.

Smart

My son and I met with Ryan to interview for programming tutors. Ryan was very helpful, extremely smart and provided us with the some great insights. We are hoping to set up remote tutoring to take advantage of Ryans skill set.
