About Ryan


Bio

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!

Excellent experience

Ryan provided exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for finance lessons. He had prepared materials for the lesson and went over them with me in thorough fashion, then made sure I knew to download the whiteboards to have them for future reference.

Jeff, 3 lessons with Ryan

Extremely knowledgeable and patient tutor

Ryan was very prepared for our first tutoring session, having asked for the work material in advance. He was fully prepared and exceedingly patient as we worked through analytical problems and on the whiteboard. He has intuitive skills on how students progress and knows to check in frequently to make sure that you're not falling behind. He repeats steps as often as you need to ensure that you're mastering the subject at hand. He's worth every minute and every dollar you spend!

Best Finance tutor on Wyzant!

Ryan explained corporate finance concepts in the best way possible and made things so much easier to understand compared to how my professor teaches the material. If you want to understand a topic, review, or prep for an exam, Ryan is your guy.

Engaged Ryan for preparation for the final exam. Ryan was excellent at explaining the subject. Learned more in 2 hours of tutoring than in the entire term in class. Highly recommend!
