North Carolina State University (Statistics)
North Carolina State University (Graduate Coursework)
I completed a Bachelor's degree in statistics at North Carolina State University in May 2010, and proceeded to take a few graduate mathematics and statistics courses. Tutoring has been my primary focus since 2011. I have tutored mathematical subjects ranging from elementary math to calculus and advanced statistics courses (e.g. mathematical statistics, biostatistics, machine learning), and have tutored ages ranging from very young children to nontraditional adult students.
Aside from math and statistics, I have also taught guitar performance and music theory at the Burton School of Arts from 2008-2011, and I am looking to begin tutoring English, composition, and rhetoric at the high school level.
I empathize with students who are frustrated with mathematical coursework and concepts, and incorporate a supportive manner in my teaching style. This applies especially to students with learning disabilities, or otherwise unique learning styles that may be less compatible with a traditional classroom learning environment. If you are frustrated and feel that you simply can't grasp these concepts, rest assured that it is possible, and having someone work one-on-one with you will help address your specific concerns and weaknesses. Often, it's just a matter of having someone explain the concepts in a different way, then walking you through a few examples.

I began my college statistics class with hubris. I was quickly dispelled of this when my online class only provided a text book and an absent professor. It became clear I needed help...and quick. I met up with Ryan about a month into the class and saw him multiple times a week until the class ended. He not only explained concepts that I needed directly for the class, but he also added practical information that would make reading statistics in every day life a bit easier. This kind of catering to a students requirements and desires to truly learn make him a remarkable tutor. He is patient and very quick to respond when it comes to scheduling or questions. It's hard to find someone reliable and he's the real deal. He doesn't waste your time or money. Take my advice and don't waste time earning sub-par grades trying to do it all on your own. Get Ryan's help and work towards improvement.
I contacted Ryan a couple of months ago because my 10th grade son was floundering in Algebra II but really loves math. My son was reluctant to have a tutor at first but after working with Ryan he realized that he had missed some fundamentals in the 1st semester. Ryan speaks to my son with respect and in a way that he understands the material. Ryan has taken the time to get to know Brandon and is able to anticipate the information he is currently working on and the information he will need to know for future lessons. Brandon's Algebra II grade went from a 'F' to 'B' in the first semester. Brandon can only maintain the increase in grade when he meets with Ryan on a regular basis. Brandon already has plans to take Pre-Calc this summer and plans to continue to work with Ryan.
We highly recommend Ryan as a tutor since he is patient, reliable and teaches using understandable terms.
UPDATE: I wanted to edit this review now that my son is in summer school for Pre-Calc. My son is driving now and is responsible for setting up his own appointments with Ryan. Ryan is responsive, and courteous. He also obtained a copy of the class syllabus and has planned problems to work on. I believe that Ryan's teaching style is the reason my son is doing so well in a short summer time frame. If he signs up for calculus next year I'm sure he will be using Ryan again!
Ryan tutored me in a graduate level biostatistics course at Johns Hopkins University. I have been consistently impressed with Ryan’s expertise and his ability to communicate that understanding to someone like me who had no previous statistics background. With his help, I was able to earn a high grade point average for the semester and walk away with a lasting appreciation for the subject. I would recommend him to anyone.
My experience with Ryan was very favorable and educative. He helped me understand the statistics concepts that I needed to complete my assignment. He is very patient and planned well for the lesson.
Ryan really does know Statistics, and he can help Stats majors in advanced classes in ways that other tutors who just handle basic classes can't. He's patient and very clear in explaining the concepts!
Ryan is a skilled tutor and, when he showed up, was able to help my son. However, more than once he cancelled just a few minutes before the session was scheduled and this last time he did not contact us at all, he just didn't show up and didn't respond to our texts for several days. It's unfortunate because my son liked Ryan and felt that he was helpful, but we need a tutor that will show up on time and as scheduled. Therefore, we've decided to find another tutor who will hopefully be as good but much more reliable.
Ryan has done a great job in presenting information in a style that can be understood and we have seen an improvement in test results. He is very patient and easy to reach and is flexible with scheduling as well.
I hate all math, so to find out I needed statistics for my degree program was discouraging. However, Ryan removed the fear and helped me to conquer this class. He's very detailed and patient. Good person to have in your corner if you are struggling.
I used Ryan to help me with Stats. Ryan is patient and has an expansive knowledge of the subject and is very good at teaching the concepts. He was excellent.
I really enjoyed working with Ryan. He was patient and encouraging as well as empathetic to my needs. I haven't had algebra or statistics in over 20 years so taking a graduate biostatistics class was a daunting task. Ryan helped me understand the concepts, review algebra, and prepare for my assignments by drawing diagrams and simplifying the material. I think I got an "A" in the class and I couldn't have done it without Ryan's knowledge and expertise. He also was super flexible!! Great experience!
Ryan is a great tutor who takes the time to really explain the concepts behind the problems. He likes to give background to the material and allow you to learn the concept, and is willing to work through the problems. He is also willing to talk through different problems to help understand the material. He really takes the time go through everything.
Ryan spent a lot of time and was very flexible in tutoring statistics for my son in college. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and patient tutor.
Ryan is very patient, knowledgeable, and genuinely interested in the student's progress.
I've had very good experience with him as a tutor.
My son has been struggled with his AP stats for more than a month now. No matter how hard he tried to study, he would never score well on his quiz & test. Ryan has helped him a lot. He took time to explain until my son understands the materials.
Today, my son scored the PERFECT score on his quiz after only 2 sessions with Ryan. I'm so thankful for Ryan's help Highly recommended him. You'll be so l happy to have Ryan as your tutor. Thanks, Ryan.
I have reached the last week in my Statistics class and finished my last session with Ryan today. I must say that he is an amazing Statistics tutor and he has helped me to understand the subject, always showing patience and taking the time to make sure I grasped the concepts. Ryan was accommodating in making sure to meet close to my home and in regards to my hectic work schedule as a nurse. I highly recommend Ryan as a tutor and if I ever need further instruction on the subject, won't hesitate to choose him again!
He has really helped my son to understand what he is learning, which is key in math. My son also raised his math SAT scores after Ryan tutored him only 4 times before the test.
Ryan is a wonderful statistics tutor, who helped me successfully pass my 5 week course with an A. I recently just completed a Statistics course required for my BSN in nursing. He showed up on time to all of our sessions, and was always accessible when I needed him. He is extremely knowledgeable in his work as a tutor. My course instructor did not give me all the resources needed to pass the class, but Ryan was able to teach me how to find other available resources to use. I literally had to be spoon fed statistics by Ryan, and the whole time he showed patience and kindness. I felt very comfortable with Ryan as a tutor. I highly RECOMMEND him to ANYONE that has NO CLUE of statistics like I did. You will be successful with Ryan.
I was taking a statistics class and just was not understanding the content. I knew I needed a tutor and did I ever find the right one! Ryan N. was so patient and didn't mind if he had to go over the same concept time and time again. His method of tutoring matched my way of learning perfectly. If I didn't get the problem one way, Ryan would come up with another way to explain it. He was extremely accommodating in working around my schedule, was quick to respond to my emails, and very professional in every manner.
Ryan was a great tutor. Unfortunately he is moving out of town. He helped me understand AP Statistics so much better. Will miss you Ryan!
Provided very thorough help, was patient, and very clear. Felt like I learned an entire course in 2 hours. I didn't have to dig through my brain for what I needed help with, he went through the course material all the way through and I asked questions when I needed help.
I'm taking an accelerated Statistics course and I thought that I could get by without needing any outside tutoring. Well, with three weeks left in the course, I hit a major roadblock in terms of understanding the material. I was completely lost and that surprised me because I'm doing very well in the class. I reached out to Ryan and after just half a lesson, the material that seemed so foreign to me, made complete sense. Ryan is very thorough and takes his time with his students. It's a relief to have someone explain something to you when you've reached your limit. Ryan achieves this and guides the student to a more well rounded understanding of not just how to get the answer, he also takes the student through all the phases of how to start, how to contemplate and lastly how to proceed with not only answering the question at hand, but to also feel confident moving forward with other similar and not so similar questions. I highly recommend Ryan as a tutor.
Ryan was extremely helpful (and patient) in explaining medical statistics that I needed to complete. He was very professional and I will definitely use him again.
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.
I use algebra extensively, from basic arithmetical manipulations to abstract topics such as rings and fields. Like most mathematics courses, Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 cover a wide range of material, but most of this material can be reduced to simple concepts. It is my experience that most people who struggle with mathematics courses do so because they are unclear on one or more fundamental concepts, and they quickly begin to feel more confident in their grasp of the overall course once these topics have been clarified.
I have a B.S. in Statistics from NCSU, and so far have completed a little over half of the requirements for a Master's in Statistics (also at NCSU). Naturally, this is my best subject to tutor, and I have had success in helping several students in the past. I try to help students see the social relevance of the subject, which is often overlooked in introductory classes, and which helps them to appreciate what they may initially perceive to be a boring and frustrating subject.
