Master's in Math; tutoring programming and math
I have a Master's Degree in Mathematics. As a graduate student, I helped students in college level math courses as a Teaching Assistant and worked in the university's "math lab," an area where students can get assistance from other students that have done well in several math courses. Furthermore, I have tutored students in high school classes as well as college courses such as Calculus, Abstract Algebra, Real Analysis, and Number Theory. I also got A's in every math course I have taken. I...
I have a Master's Degree in Mathematics. As a graduate student, I helped students in college level math courses as a Teaching Assistant and worked in the university's "math lab," an area where students can get assistance from other students that have done well in several math courses. Furthermore, I have tutored students in high school classes as well as college courses such as Calculus, Abstract Algebra, Real Analysis, and Number Theory. I also got A's in every math course I have taken. I can also help with SAT/ACT/GRE prep in Math: 760 on the SAT math section, scored 166 on the General GRE Quantitative Reasoning section, and 750 on the Math subject GRE.
Also as a graduate student, I taught Python to new college students, many of whom had never programmed before. From September 2018 to April 2020 I spent about four hours per week helping students fix their Python programs. I also have experience with Java and C++.
I also have experience tutoring online and know of several resources to ensure that the quality of tutoring appointments is just as good as in person.
Currently, I am a research mathematician for the federal government, and I'm doing tutoring in my spare time. I also have a Top Secret clearance. You can trust both my character and abilities in math and programming!
I have a love of math tutoring and helping students not only understand the material they need to know, but to go a bit beyond and explore other interesting things that the material applies to. I'd love you get to know you! Please send me a message through Wyzant and I look forward to working with you!

Ryan is a wonderful tutor and of great help to me. He always has an answer for every question I ask. Ryan ensured that I did well on my group theory class, and right now he is tutoring me in analysis. Thank You Ryan.Benson, 50 lessons with Ryan
Could Not Have Survived Without Ryan's Help
I could not have survived this semester and passed my cryptography class without Ryan's help! He is at the rare intersection of theoretical math and cryptography and is both extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He patiently walked me through complex proofs and his help on homework assignments were invaluable. We went through PRG, PRF, RSA, Feistel round functions, discrete logarithm, and zero knowledge questions, among other things and did plenty of review. He goes above and beyond to be communicative and responsive, and he always sends the whiteboard notes for review at the end, so you can pay extra attention and stop for questions to make sure you are clear on everything. I highly recommend him as a tutor, and have in fact passed along his information to students in my department who want someone with both a theoretical math background heavy in proofs and modern cryptography concepts.Sophia, 20 lessons with Ryan
Great teacher, Very helpful!

Knowledgeable College-level Calculus Two Tutor
My son, who was reluctant to work with a tutor, found his first session so helpful that he requested a second. Thanks to Ryan’s tutoring, he feels more confident with the material going into the second half of the semester. Thanks, Ryan.mLorie, 9 lessons with Ryan
Excellent at explaining concepts
Great tutor, Ryan was great at explaining difficult questions and guiding me to the correct answer. We went over combinatorics and login problemsAnthony, 11 lessons with Ryan
Very patient and knowledgable! We worked through python problems together and helped troubleshoot where I was getting stuck. I look forward to continuing to work with Ryan on future course material!Travis, 6 lessons with Ryan
Very helpful, patient, and really fast at debugging. Went through the code step by step and made sure it was clear. Would highly recommend as a python tutor!Anna, 1 lesson with Ryan
