About Ryan

Hello, I am a student-minded tutor and I mold my approach and methods to every student to maximize their strengths and inspire them to develop further. I have a Master's Degree and know how to work hard, but I also believe learning can and should be enjoyable and I try to cultivate a positive environment. I will take initiative to search for resources or that one little thing to make each student successful. I love serving and investing in people and always learn from my students. I would love to work with you and help you discover a little more of your potential.
I have extensive experience as a music teacher and have helped students of all ages improve their ability to express themselves through music. I have also worked at summer camps, mentoring and coaching students in academic and athletic settings. I love to see how unique each person is and to help them learn in whatever style or format is easiest for them. I have worked with all attitudes and temperaments, from hyperactive to sullen and despondent. I believe that everyone can always improve and that sometimes learning how to learn is just as important as the information being studied. To that end, I try to teach students to become independent learners and to think for themselves instead of merely regurgitating facts for a test.

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.

Bible Studies

I became a Christian when I was five years old and have taught Sunday School classes, Bible Studies, Scripture Memory, and counseled at Christian camps. In college I earned a Bible minor by taking survey courses, biblical ethics, apologetics, and Bible Doctrines classes. I am currently studying Ephesians with my pastor to better understand the gospel and its applications to Christian living.

Elementary Math

I have worked with children of various ages on math skills including multiplication tables, figuring out fractions, long division, percentages, problems with lengthy and confusing verbiage, and other general math skills.
I enjoy mixing the serious nature of mathematics with humor as is needed to keep the student's mind engaged and to avoid frustration. I also present problems various ways to help students understand things in their own way of speaking or rationalizing.

Piano

I have a Master's Degree in Piano Pedagogy, and 7 years' experience teaching all styles of music to students ages 5-adult. I also teach improvisation, composition, theory, song-writing, accompanying, and conducting. I emphasize music-reading and creativity and help my students become independent learners and enjoy music-making.
