Bio

I earned a 99th percentile score on the GMAT and 98th percentile on the SAT. I earned a 3.99 GPA during MBA coursework and tutored Finance, Corporate Valuation, Accounting, and Statistics for full-time and executive MBAs at Vanderbilt. In addition to tutoring during my MBA program, I taught large-group recitations for Finance and Statistics, helping students to understand the material given by the professors in lecture.

I earned a 99th percentile score on the GMAT and 98th percentile on the SAT. I earned a 3.99 GPA during MBA coursework and tutored Finance, Corporate Valuation, Accounting, and Statistics for full-time and executive MBAs at Vanderbilt. In addition to tutoring during my MBA program, I taught large-group recitations for Finance and Statistics, helping students to understand the material given by the professors in lecture.

I have real-world Corporate Finance experience working as an investment banker at a top-rated M&A firm, but I have always found teaching to be the most rewarding professional experience of my life. After receiving instructor training, I taught leadership and tactics courses for post-college new officers at the US Army’s Armor School. In the three years I served in that role, I was promoted to senior instructor and awarded top instructor honors multiple times.

The process of growth from seeing to doing, to knowing, to understanding is the most important part of life. I enjoy watching students pass from one end of the spectrum to the other and am honored to play a small part in that progress. Learning happens best when students are comfortable and interested, and my teaching style is based on that premise. I enjoy interacting with students and I think it shows in the energy and encouragement I bring to the job. Listening is at least as important in my job as talking. I like to use questions to probe for understanding of conceptual underpinnings rather than just application and let the answers inform my plan to advance my students’ progress.

I was awarded the full tuition Ingram Scholarship to Vanderbilt for my MBA, as well as the Bruce D. Henderson Scholarship for maintaining the highest GPA in the program. I was also awarded the Matt Wigginton award for outstanding achievement in Finance and the Dean H. Igor Ansoff leadership award for my work as a TA and tutor.

I love helping people reach the next level of academic performance and look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Absolutely amazing.

Ryan is very good at breaking down concepts in Accounting to help me better understand them. He explains the concepts in different ways, and helps me visualize them with good examples. This man is a legend.

Thomas, 4 lessons with Ryan

great teacher!

Ryan is very patient and makes sure you understand the problem before moving on. Taught me a lot about not only the problems but how to function in excel better! Highly recommend!

Jenna, 5 lessons with Ryan

Knowledgable and excellent tutor

We reviewed topics from my Financial Accounting class in preparation for my exam. He was very helpful and explained everything in an extremely easy way to understand. He made the material I was learning feel easy, even though it previously felt hard. I would 100% recommend him!

Nadia, 1 lesson with Ryan

Explains MBA-level accounting better than professors!

Ryan saved me through several difficult moments this year by explaining challenging concepts most accounting and econ professors don’t truly know how to teach!

Anne, 5 lessons with Ryan

EXCELLENT! PATIENT!

He was excellent! If you need help with health finance he is the one! I previously booked another tutor who wasn’t very helpful! He’s intelligent and worth every dime!

Awesome

Ryan had a tough job working with me in a masters level finance course. He reduced my anxiety and calmly walked me through the problems I was having issues with. With his help I was able to turn my grade around and I am forever grateful. Thank you!

Elite Finance Tutor!

Ryan is the man. After my session w/ him, I was able to understand topics I was struggling with from the very start of the semester in under an hour. He has a way of helping you understand/solve complex problems in a way that is easier to understand, and it’ll stick with you. I highly recommend him for any basic, intermediate, and advanced finance courses.

Makes Difficult Concepts Sound Easy - A+++

Ryan was able to help me better understand the components of creating a DCF in under 30 min. I look forward to working w/ him again. I highly suggest working with him to anyone taking a finance class and to anyone who wants to understand the technical aspects of investment banking for interviews.
