“**Great Tutor, really helpful explanations**”

I am currently a physics graduate student at Cornell with years of experience in tutoring English, science and mathematics, both as a college tutor and in an African refugee community. I hold a BS in physics and applied mathematics from Syracuse University. I also have a strong record of winning national science fellowships and doing intense

Ryan is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

It was really helpful to review background information before taking a step by step approach to solving a problem. Made it simple to understand reasons behind a step in calculating the answer.

He is really responsible, patient, and helpful. Instead of doing the problem himself, he guided me to do the problems on my own and I can definitely know what is going on!

To be fair, I work with a broad subject, and it was a little difficult the first time we met. I used him for Cornell's Discrete Math class. But Ryan is good at working with you, rather than just telling you the answers. He makes sure you understand the subject before you move on, so sometimes we don't get very far, but we are always thorough.

Common Core, Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have worked extensively with C++ for more than five years now doing coursework and particle physics research.

I regularly aid college students and high school students in preparing job applications, resumes, and choosing the best internships and courses for career development. I have spoken at and participated in career related workshops and events at Syracuse University and in high school outreach to local schools and refugee communities.

I performed at an A level in four semesters of Chinese at Syracuse university. This level of proficiency awarded me membership to the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa society by the time I graduated. I currently daily practice Chinese writing and speaking, and my wife is a native speaker of Chinese. My proficiency includes 1,500-2000 characters, and I would feel comfortable tutoring introductory-level students.

I am currently a physics graduate student at Cornell University and have excellent qualifications to help students prepare applications and choose the best internships and courses to achieve high level careers. I have completed the bulk of my coursework in physics and have already made contributions to both particle physics research and single molecule DNA biophysics with a focus on nanofabrication, the latter will be my thesis focus. I have five publications to date and am working on several more. I worked two summers at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, including the summer of 2012 on the ATLAS experiment that discovered the Higgs boson. I have an excellent record of standardized test scores and winning the top fellowships available in the US, as well as helping numerous foreign and domestic college students prepare applications that helped gain them entrance into prestigious internships and universities with in-depth one-on-one assistance. I am also obtaining fluency in Chinese and practice daily.

For graduate fellowships I have won the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship for physics research, a Cornell Graduate Research Fellowship, a Biophysics Training Fellowship from Howard Hughes Medical Institute, a Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility Fellowship. For undergraduate national fellowships I was an Astronaut Scholar, a Goldwater Scholar, and Marshall Scholarship Finalist. From Syracuse University I was a University Scholar, Remembrance Scholar, and Coronat Scholar. I also have Phi Beta Kappa Membership and graduated from the Renee Crown Honors Program.

I have an increasingly stellar record of helping students prepare job applications, fellowship applications and college applications. I have helped many foreign students especially in these categories who have trouble with English grammar and understanding what review committees are looking for. People (about 30 so far) who I have spent 2-10 hours preparing applications have gotten into PhD programs at top schools such as Cold Spring Harbor and Ohio State University and fellowships such as the NSF Fellowship and a prestigious UCLA program . The number of people who go to me for consulting has increased after an initial successful year and I am anticipating an increasingly large list of happy applicants.

For standardized tests, I had a 750 on math and 800 on reading for SAT. For the GRE, I have 166 on reading (96%), 163 on quantitative (86%), and 5 on writing (93%).

For teaching experiences, I taught Somali Bantu refugees English, science, and math and my main student is now in mechanical engineering after a very disadvantaged background. I was also a Calculus tutor for several years at Syracuse University.

I have intensely programmed in C++ for five years working for the Large Hadron Collider experiment in Geneva, Switzerland both remotely and on-site. I have used Python extensively for two years and MATLAB for a two semester internship and an upper level physics class. I am very proficient in UNIX/linux programming with more than five years of experience and regular current use.

I performed at an A level in upper level ordinary and partial different equations courses at Syracuse University. I regularly solve these equations in my current PhD studies.

As part of my BS in applied mathematics I took advanced discrete math courses that covered discrete math topics such as logic, set theory, geometry, and numerical/computational analysis and received A scores in all of these. In both physics courses and research for BS and my MS courses we heavily cover discretization and computer languages and do basic information theory and topology.

I have a BS in physics and applied math. I have taken advanced and introductory Linear Algebra courses at an A level in both at Syracuse University as well as two semesters of advanced Quantum Mechanics and one of Cornell graduate quantum mechanics that heavily used Linear Algebra. I have a physics and applied mathematics major.

I received an A in a MATLAB based upper level physics "Science and Computing" course at Syracuse University. I intensely used MATLAB for a one year internship, 10-20 hours a week for two semesters. The focus was on dark matter Monte Carlo simulations. I also use MATLAB regularly for my current research position in my PhD studies at Cornell.

I have much experience in reviewing and editing application essays for college entrance and fellowships for both foreign and American students. I'm an avid reader of novels, nonfiction and current events, and was in the 93% percentile GRE writing (5). I received A's in undergraduate intensive writing courses, and have five publications in physics to date.
