About Ryan


Bio

I am in my Junior year of Ferris State's Secondary Education program, majoring in English and minoring in both Biology and Psychology. I hope to teach either Biology or English for Grand Rapids Public Schools, where my elementary-aged children attend.

I have experience with one-on-one, in-home tutoring for both public school and home school students ranging from elementary to high school levels. I also spent two years tutoring writing at Grand Rapids Community College's drop-in writing lab,...

I am in my Junior year of Ferris State's Secondary Education program, majoring in English and minoring in both Biology and Psychology. I hope to teach either Biology or English for Grand Rapids Public Schools, where my elementary-aged children attend.

I have experience with one-on-one, in-home tutoring for both public school and home school students ranging from elementary to high school levels. I also spent two years tutoring writing at Grand Rapids Community College's drop-in writing lab, where I earned level one certification from the College Reading and Learning Association.

I have tutored students in math in in-home tutoring sessions, including a home schooled 14 year old who was returning to public school and needed to learn everything from elementary addition to high school algebra.

I started my education program as a Biology major and changed only because of my love of literature. I plan to teach biology and physiology on the high school level once certified.

I have been writing for 35 years and teaching writing for 25 years. I have tutored in the college setting and in the living rooms of junior high students. I have had short stories published and continue to write for fun and profit.

I love to learn, especially about teaching, and tutoring offers me the opportunity to explore more of what teaching can mean to me and to others. I would love the opportunity to learn from your students while sharing my skills with them.
