After graduating from the University of Richmond in 2010, I have spent the last six years in the Washington DC area. I currently work as as a Portfolio Manager building out a multi-family office in Washington DC. Prior to that, I worked as an adviser at a private wealth management firm, working with high net worth individuals and families. I have 4 years' experience tutoring in undergraduate finance and algebra, and my work has furthered my personal education in many aspects of finance, economics, mathematics, and relationship management. In my spare time I am an avid runner and enjoy playing basketball.

My tutoring style is tailored to fit the needs of the student. Ultimately, my goal is to allow the student to grasp the concept behind the different topics he or she is learning in order to provide the tools necessary to succeed with any future coursework. When possible, I like to use real world situations the student can relate to in order to establish connections between the assignment and what the student already knows.

I am very passionate about teaching finance and math - I believe every student has the capacity to learn and master any topic; it is up to me to present the information in an understandable fashion.

Algebra 1,

I have tutored in algebra 1 for two years and have always been proficient in the subject. When teaching algebra, I always find it best to break problems down into parts and allow the student to understand the concepts behind the problem instead of just showing the student how to solve.

Easy to work with.

Ryan is so comfortable working with Tom. He has never had this level of comfort when working with someone in Algebra. (Including myself and my husband.) It is refreshing to see.
