About Ryan

I am a high school chemistry teacher in Manhattan and I love chemistry, and whether you share that love or not I want to help you gain a deeper understanding of the subject. I have been working with students in chemistry for going on 15 years now. In college I tutored high school students in Worcester MA because I loved the idea of working closely with students in chemistry even before I realized teaching was my true life calling.

Now that I am in my third year of teaching regents level chemistry I am even better equipped to tutor students to amazing grades on the regent exam. I will be able to bring my insight from the classroom to your student in the house. I can supply my own materials that have been proven to be effective in my classroom setting to sessions. Because I have seen so many students pass through my classroom, I have seen many different misconceptions and common errors and have developed practice and study techniques to address them.

I want to bring my experience in the classroom to a personal interaction with your student.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and two Master's degrees, one in Forensic Science from the University of New Haven and one in Secondary Education from the Relay Graduate School of Education. My qualifications do not just end with my education though, I spent a year after graduating college working as an analytical chemist for a consulting firm. As far as chemistry education is concerned, I have been teaching regents chemistry for 3 years now at a Manhattan high school. My classes have beaten the city average scores for the regents every year that I have been at my school.

I mentioned this above but I have been teaching regents chemistry for 3 years now at a Manhattan high school. Every year my student's averages beat the city average on the exam. For each of the years I have taught, I have also lead a regents prep course after school for students in my classes. I have been grading regents for my entire teaching career as well. This gives me a deep insight into the types of questions asked on the exam and how to best approach each question to ensure understanding of what is being asked and what information is required to solve it.

By hiring me you are not just hiring a person that comes to your house once a week to help with homework and then leaves. You are hiring a comprehensive tutoring experience. I am available for communications before and after sessions. I can communicate with teachers to see where in a unit your student may be struggling. I urge open lines of communication between myself and your family so that I can come prepared to each session to maximize our time together.

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.

Chemistry

I have been a chemistry teacher for the last 3 years in a Manhattan public school. Before choosing to be a teacher I worked as an analytical chemist while tutoring high school students on the side. I believe that my work in the field and work in education make me uniquely qualified to help your student reach their full potential in chemistry.

Regents

I am qualified as a Regents tutor for several reasons. The first reason is that I currently, and for the last three years, teach a chemistry regents course. For my entire teaching career I have also taught a regents prep course after school for students in my chemistry classes. The students in this prep course consistently beat the city average on the regent. Finally I have spent the last two years grading the regent exam which gives me insight into the way the regent designs questions and tries to trick students.
