About Ryan


Bio

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!

Computer Science

I first started learning Java more than 10 years ago. I took AP Computer Science in high school and got a 5 on the exam; our teacher taught for beyond the course material and we ended up learning all of Data Structures. I then took Data Structures in college in C++, and a few Python courses where I essentially ended up learning Data Structures there. As a graduate student, I taught a programming course in Python for two years and got very good at identifying the source of problems in code, and helping students fix the problems.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have a Master's in Mathematics, so I definitely have an understanding of the topics of linear equations and linear inequalities (and graphing/solving them), exponents, and factoring quadratic expressions (among others) seen in a typical Algebra 1 course. I also have tutoring experience with students as young as ten, helping them to understand the complicated math needed, even when they're having a hard time understanding it on their own. For anyone looking for Abstract Algebra 1 (sometimes abbreviated to Algebra 1), I also am familiar with Groups, Rings, Fields, homomorphisms and isomorphisms, among the other topics in a typical Abstract Algebra course, and I've tutored this subject as well (I was a TA for this class for two semesters; once out of the Fraleigh book and the other time out of Saracino).
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have lots of experience with the topics covered in a typical Algebra 2 course, including factoring polynomials (and quadratics), laws of exponents and logarithms, graphing polynomials, sequences and series, complex numbers, and conic sections (also matrices and any linear algebra that might be covered in such a course). For those looking for Abstract Algebra 2 help, I'm very familiar with rings and fields, and also Galois Theory (including typical material for this course from Dummit and Foote).
Calculus,

Calculus

As a high school student, I took AP Calculus BC and got a 5 on the exam (I never took AP Calculus AB, but the course I took covered the same material, but faster). I then took Honors Calculus 2 at my University, earning an A, and Multivariate Calculus, and my final grade was over 100 on account of some extra credit. I am very familiar with all Calculus topics, including derivatives (power rule, product rule, quotient rule, chain rule, implicit differentiation) and limits (even the delta-epsilon proofs), related rates, integrals and integral techniques (u-sub, integration by parts, trig sub), volumes of revolution, polar and parametric equations, and series (convergence, Taylor/Maclaurin series). I am also familiar with partial derivatives and multiple integrals, as well as Green's Theorem, Stokes' Theorem, and the Divergence Theorem.

Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

In high school, I took a course called Discrete Mathematics where we learned about graph theory, combinatorics, poker probabilities, lottery probabilities, and similar things. I have also taken college courses on combinatorics, graph theory, number theory, cryptography, and group theory. Discrete math kind of encapsulates a wide variety of mathematics, but I'm quite comfortable with a lot of it.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

I have a Master's Degree in Mathematics. I'm also very familiar with the concepts of Finite Mathematics, including sets and probability, counting (permutations/combinations), linear equations. I have two years of experience applying these ideas to solve real world problems in the business world.
Logic,

Logic

I have a Master's degree in Mathematics, where I took six years of courses involving proofs (in a mathematical setting). Specifically, I have taken graduate courses on Algebra, Analysis, Topology, and Number Theory. I TA'd (essentially a tutoring position) a class involving universal quantifiers, truth tables, and basic proof strategies (direct, contrapositive, induction, contradiction) for one year and an introductory course to Abstract Algebra (also one year). I also graded both courses, giving helpful feedback to students to help them understand their mistakes.

Bushra, 18 lessons with Ryan

Knowledgeable and Clear

Ryan is very good at explaining calculus problems and new concepts! I learned a lot and was able to quickly understand what had previously confused me in school.

Katie, 3 lessons with Ryan

Cypher math

He showed me how to solve the problem. I am so new to cipher and I dont know how to do any problems and he made me understood and it has opened my brain a bit. I am looking forward to take more classes with him this semester to pass this class

Marjuqua, 6 lessons with Ryan

Great at explaining concepts!

This was my second time getting tutoring help from Ryan and he has been great at explaining homework concepts and helping me work through the problems. We made a lot of progress and am looking forward to the next time I get help from him.

Akash, 16 lessons with Ryan

Smart and Cares about your Understanding!

Ryan helps me in Abstract Algebra. He makes the concepts simple and answers all my questions with ease and provides examples to make the idea stick. He shows how to think through the proofs using the definitions and manipulations. I'm very happy that I picked Ryan to help!

Jordin, 21 lessons with Ryan

Great Tutor and knows his stuff

Ryan is an great tutor who really takes the time to explain the materiel, he uses a pen so he can write on the whiteboard to put the notes on it and for you to see, he shows how it is done, he still guide me has we work along making sure I understand the concept. He has been very patient and never mind if i ask the same question again. highly recommend him

Benjamin, 4 lessons with Ryan

Great tutor with great math skills

Ryan taught one of my students pre-calculus. He is patient and knowledgeable. And he response my request very fast too. I would like to recommend him for anyone who needs a math tutor.
