About Ryan

I am an Aerospace Engineering graduate from the University of Virginia and am currently pursuing a Masters in Engineering Management at Duke University. I have extensive knowledge in engineering, math, science, fluids, aerodynamics, business, marketing, finance, and many other STEM and business sectors.

I have a small amount of teaching experience, but have worked well with peers in the past when tackling group problem sets by explaining the concepts behind the answers. I believe my main benefit is my ability to help you learn the concepts behind the answers, which will allow to solve a much broader range of problems you may see on tests or final examinations.

I had great marks in all courses throughout my course work. Highest level of math class taken: Partial Differential Equations (A+).

I have excellent knowledge of all fundamental engineering concepts and fresh knowledge of what is required in schooling in STEM fields as a recent graduate.

I have spoken at many different conferences and presentations ranging from small (50 people) to large (over 1000). My particular expertise is in business presentation as well as how to communicate clearly while appearing confident and knowledgeable.

If you interested in understanding the core concepts of any STEM field you may be in, or building presentation and business skills I would strongly recommend contacting me for more information about what I can provide. I happy to help in anyway I can.

Best,

Ryan

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.

Business

I have start up business experience and minored in business through commerce school at UVa. Specialize in start up ventures, but can provide funding, presentation, and accounting help in any industry. Currently pursuing a graduate business degree at Duke.

Calculus

As in all math courses through partial differential equations.

Computer Programming

I have passed the Java certification here. I know several languages (C++, Matlab, Java, Python, VB) and know all of the basic structures on programing (for loop, while loops, Boolean logic, etc).

Differential Equations

I graduated from the University of Virginia in Aerospace Engineering - Received B+ or A- in Differential Equations and A+ in Partial Differential Equations (A higher course)

Economics

I earned great marks in macro and micro. I have taken microeconomics under Professor Elzinga (A+) and macroeconomics under Coppock (A). I've also applied many econ principals in my business minor at UVa, which required micro as a core class.

Mechanical Engineering

I'm an Aerospace Engineering graduate (many courses are the exact same except aerodynamics) from UVa. Work experience in engineering on DoD contracts

Public Speaking

Through my business minor at UVa I took several public speaking and presentation courses (presentation strategies for entrepreneurs, Advanced business speaking) and did very well. I have Start-Up pitch experience and specialize in presentation construction for venture funding. I have spoken in front of crowds of greater than 1000 people at conferences and ceremonies with great success. I mentored with Douglas Muir while at UVa, who imparted to me many of the techniques he uses while speaking which I would now like to pass on to others.

Awesome role model and tutor for my 15 year old son — My son is in the AOE program at his high school. It is a very challenging regimen with Honors classes and extracurricular activities. As soon as Ryan arrived I knew instantly that he and my son Ryan (same names) had great chemistry. Ryan really helped my son tremendously with his current content in Algebra 2 as well as gave him advice on Engineering, College and Sports. He is such a wonderful ...
