About Ryan


Bio

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)...

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.

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.

Damian, 1 lesson with Ryan

Multivariable calculus

Great teacher. Very knowledgeable. Very flexible. Ryan was available within a few hours of our searching. Ryan did a great job. Ryan was very honest and candid with the charges. Thank you so much, Ryan.

Veera, 1 lesson with Ryan

Detailed and knew how to tie together concepts very well

Worked on mid level college stats and Ryan was great at providing insights and tips on how to improve my stats skills. Would work with him again in the future with additional concepts.

Jeff, 3 lessons with Ryan

Patient and very knowledgable

Ryan helped my son with probability and geometric and binomial models for his 12th grade statistics class. My son said that he taught it to him better then his own teacher did.

Ann, 1 lesson with Ryan

Great tutor with broad knowledge

Ryan was quickly able to come up with examples to explain different types of concepts. Moreover, Ryan patiently answered all of my questions, regardless their level of difficulty. I really appreciated it.

Gilad, 2 lessons with Ryan

Really Helped!

I am taking Trigonometry and I have been falling behind in class. It is all online and so it is sometimes difficult for me to follow concepts in the book. Ryan explained many details about Trig that are difficult to understand while just reading. He is an excellent tutor.

Allan, 7 lessons with Ryan

Comfortable from the outset

This was my first tutor experience, and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Ryan made the experience very comfortable and easy to jump right into, and I look forward to continuing to work with him through my semester. He broke down core calculus concepts and presented them in a very comprehensive way; a nod to his mastery and tutoring experience!

Perfect Laid Back Style For Tutoring My Son

Improving math SAT practice tests! I am positive gains will be sustained. My son likes the way he explains ways to find solutions. Way to go ! We are happy to have met Ryan.

Stephen, 41 lessons with Ryan

Excellent and encouraging instruction

I am taking an advanced STAT-351 class which no one was able to help me with. Ryan made the material easily digestible and approached everything from the ground up. One of the best experiences I have had with a tutor. By the end of the month I should pass my class!
