About Ryan

I am currently a graduate student at Tufts University pursuing my Ph.D in chemistry. I received my BS (double major in chemistry and environmental geoscience) from the University of Massachusetts Lowell. During my time at the university, I both tutored and worked in a research lab. My research was concerned with the development of automated analytical tools to detect trace heavy metals (lead, arsenic, mercury, etc.)

I enjoy tutoring because it is extremely rewarding. I have worked with students who were failing their assignments and brought them up to A work. Although I understand the importance of working homework problems with students; I stress understanding in my lessons. Typically, I will break down the material into important sections and explain general concepts and show some examples before moving onto working homework problems. I have found that by explaining general concepts, students can better grasp the problems and apply their knowledge to a wide variety of problems they may encounter on exams. This method seems to work much better than simply giving a student a formula to plug into. Although the correct answer is important, being able to logically show how you got there is paramount on exams (and will reflect in your grade).

I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a double major in chemistry and environmental geoscience. Not only did I tutor while in college but I work in a chemistry research lab which forces me to constantly use my knowledge.

Please feel free to contact me. I enjoy helping students learn and would love to help you succeed in chemistry.
