About Ryan

I've got 12 years of tutoring experience ranging from remedial algebra through third semester calculus. I've helped numerous students through AP Calculus AB (and BC) in addition to subjects in preparation (pre-calculus and the algebras). I have a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin.

I generally have the student work through a problem first by themselves and then work with them through step-by-step, discussing strategies for approaching similar problems and concepts, as well as identifying any spots of improvement. I encourage showing work and developing methods to improve understanding and test-taking abilities. Not only do I cover the core material, but also like to touch on applications of the material and ways that students can improve recognition/speed & accuracy which help foster enjoyment of the subject and prepare them for future classes when the material gets tougher.

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.

Calculus

8 years tutoring calculus as a student in college as well as AP calculus after graduation.

Discrete Math

I've tutored this subject in the past, it was a core part of my Computer Science and Mathematics degree coursework. Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Number Theory more than cover the basics of proofs and fundamentals covered in discrete math. All classes which were a part of my cryptography curriculum.

Great tutor

My daughter learned quite a few things and brushed up on the basics As well when she went for the BC calculus. Although she is an A+ student she was hitting the wall when it came to calculus. Ryan helped to navigate thru some of that
