About Ryan

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.

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

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

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.

Statistics

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.

Saved My Hide — 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 in ...
