About Ryan

Hi there! Thanks for checking out my profile! Let me tell you a little bit about myself: I am currently finishing a degree with a focus on high school education (more specifically high school math, but I work in other areas as well). I work with children and adults of all ages, both near me and online.

When working with you or your child, I spend the first few sessions working with you to find a baseline on what you struggle with the most. I will both help with homework and help strengthen the areas that are too challenging so that when your child or you go into your test, you feel confident. I have a proven track record of helping increase grades, and I'd love to work with 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.

ACT Math

With the ACT, as with any standardized test, knowledge of the subject and knowledge of effective test-taking strategies have importance. I try to first ensure that the student has an in-depth understanding of the subject matter, before trying to work with them on study techniques that work for them, as well as test-taking strategies.

Algebra 1

When teaching, I prefer to have the student explain as much of a concept to me as they can first, so I can see where they excel and where they struggle. By doing this, we can then focus on what they need help with so they can keep up with their math class in school, and reach their fullest potential.

Algebra 2

I work with students to identify foundational as well as technical issues they have, allowing them to reach their fullest potential.

Elementary Math

I find that when working with younger children, often times simply trying to understand how the child thinks, and then explaining it to them in a way that makes sense to them will solve many problems.

Geometry

When working with students, I try to help them understand what concepts mean; often visualizing the concept brings understanding quicker than letters and numbers on a page.

Prealgebra

I find that many students at this level are still struggling with foundational concept; by working on those with them, as well as helping them to catch up in the more advanced concepts, we are able to work together to bring out the student's fullest potential.

Precalculus

Precalculus is inherently difficult for most students; when working with them, I ask them to explain what they can to me so that we can find where their limit of understanding is, and we begin at that limit.

SAT Math

When taking the SAT, there can be a lot of pressure to do well, as it impacts your ability to get into a good school! As is the case with most tests, I believe that a foundation needs to be built on both mastery of the material as well as strategies to effectively cope with the pressure and take the test at the height of your ability. As such, both of these topics are covered in sessions with me.
