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 (univariate and multivariate), linear algebra, differential equations, real analysis, and advanced statistics courses (e.g. mathematical statistics, biostatistics, machine learning, advanced probability), 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.

Thanks for looking at my profile, and I hope you'll give me a chance to help you!

Statistics

I have a B.S. in Statistics from NCSU, and completed a year of graduate coursework in Statistics (also at NCSU). Naturally, this is one of my best subjects to tutor, and I have had success in helping many students from highly diverse backgrounds over the past several years. 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.

Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

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.
Calculus,

Calculus

I have used calculus, including multivariable and vector calculus, on a near daily basis for about 15 years. Calculus is the gateway to higher mathematics, physics, and engineering, but it can unfortunately be difficult to get through. I've had success in helping students master Calculus through real world, intuitive examples, carefully chosen exercises, and thorough clarification of the fundamental concepts.

Very Knowledgeable

Ryan was very helpful in teaching me advanced topics in stat theory. I sent him some questions in advance, because I've had other tutors tell me they can't do it, but Ryan was able to help me answer the question and is very good at explaining complex topics.

Wilbert, 2 lessons with Ryan

Great calc tutor

Reviewed the basic rules for differentiation (power rule, chain rule, product and quotient rules), discussed the relationships between first and second derivatives and extrema and inflection points, and optimization problems.

Camila, 7 lessons with Ryan

Great Tutor!

Got back to me quick and met with me shortly after online. He was accommodating and really saved me on one of my first homework assignments. Overall it was a great first lesson for probabilities, which is a subject many other tutors had a hard time with.

Austin, 15 lessons with Ryan

Great Tutor

Ryan is very knowledgable, when I originally started working with him I was totally confused. Im coming along slowly, but surely and its all thanks to him. I am very grateful for all his help.

Reshaunna , 13 lessons with Ryan

Smart and Patient

Ryan helped me with Simple and Multiple regression and was helpful in letting me work out the concepts and then explaining the reasoning for them before demonstrating sample problems. Got an A on my test thanks to him.

Dan , 2 lessons with Ryan

Ryan knew the material and was great at explaining it in a way that made sende

Ryan was patient, flexible and accommodating with the meeting times, explains things so they make sense, I feel confident working with him and will continue to meet with him as often as needed.

Andrew, 1 lesson with Ryan

Glad we found him.

Ryan evaluates what skills are weak or missing and begins there, breaking down the skills into small parts and using them to solve the problems. He has emphasized that my son needs to practice the skills worked on to retain them.

Gail, 20 lessons with Ryan

Excellent tutor

Rayan is simply the best tutor available, he possesses the unique ability to make the difficult easy to understand. My time with him has increased my understanding and confidence in the subject matter immensely.

Tony , 9 lessons with Ryan

Started Simple

I am taking a calculus class now, and I told Ryan what I was doing in class as well as what I was having trouble with. He started out with basic algebraic equations for me to understand then unpacked it further until we were doing the calculus problems. Ryan knows where to start to make information click. Thank you, Ryan.
