Concepts Over Corrections!
Concepts Over Corrections!
You can learn how to communicate and express better starting today. Research has proven that the brain acts just like a muscle, physically growing as learners actively engage with it. Just like physical exercise, students can make the most of the time they spend "working out" their minds if they have a guide, coach, and trainer. I would like to be all of these things for you or your student.
I believe in teaching and tutoring skills rather than topics. Every lesson I do and every example I provide will help my students feel immediately as though they have a new tool at their disposal that they can use to reach new heights of understanding and new depths of expression. While I do aim to help all students become immediately successful in the course or concept they are currently studying, my true objective is to foster an understanding and proficiency that will stay with them throughout their lives. My students don't simply make better grades - they become better learners.
I have taught Pre-AP English at the 9th grade level and provided writing coaching and tutoring for all levels of undergraduate college writing. I also have experience with proactive college preparedness courses, and specialize in college applications, essays, scholarship necessities, and SAT/ACT prep. I have a tremendous amounts of various resources which enable me to quickly diagnose and address individual needs for individual students; no two lessons are the same. I have a tremendous interest in all types of literature and an expert understanding of difficult grammar and mechanics issues many students struggle with.
I look forward to helping you become the strongest you can be!
Hear what previous students have had to say about working with me!
"Ryan M. is a phenomenal tutor. The main reason I say that is because he does not tell you 'no, you're wrong' he inquires you about your work asking questions like 'what do you think needs to be fixed here? Does something look odd to you? Explain to me what you mean by that.' He has you thinking about how you can improve your work, not on how he can improve it for you. Ryan is a wonderful guide in the adventure of learning."
"Mr. Ryan is a very helpful professor and he also motivates me a lot to study. As an international student, I have several grammar, spelling and punctuation problems. Professor Ryan doesn’t fix my mistakes. He teaches me how to see them, and fix them by myself. I enjoy asking him for help because I always learn a lot from him. I would extremely recommend him as a professor to any of my friends."
