About Ryan


Bio

I have a Master's Degree in Mathematics. As a graduate student, I helped students in college level math courses as a Teaching Assistant and worked in the university's "math lab," an area where students can get assistance from other students that have done well in several math courses. Furthermore, I have tutored students in Algebra, Precalculus, and Calculus specifically. I also got A's in every math course I have taken. I can also help with SAT/ACT/GRE prep in Math: 760 on the SAT math...

Furthermore, I have tutored students in Algebra, Precalculus, and Calculus specifically. I also got A's in every math course I have taken. I can also help with SAT/ACT/GRE prep in Math: 760 on the SAT math section, scored 166 on the General GRE Quantative Reasoning section, and 750 on the Math subject GRE.

Also as a graduate student, I taught Python to new college students, many of whom had never programmed before. From September 2018 to April 2020 I spent about four hours per week helping students fix their Python programs. I also have experience with Java and C++.

I also have experience tutoring online and know of several resources to ensure that the quality of tutoring appointments is just as good as in person.

I have a love of math tutoring and helping students not only understand the material they need to know, but to go a bit beyond and explore other interesting things that the material applies to. I'd love you get to know you! Please send me a message through Wyzant and I'm excited to work with you!

Computer Science

I first started learning Java more than 10 years ago. I took AP Computer Science in high school and got a 5 on the exam; our teacher taught for beyond the course material and we ended up learning all of Data Structures. I then took Data Structures in college in C++, and a few Python courses where I essentially ended up learning Data Structures there. As a graduate student, I taught a programming course in Python for two years and got very good at identifying the source of problems in code, and helping students fix the problems.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have a Master's in Mathematics, so I definitely have an understanding of the topics of linear equations and linear inequalities (and graphing/solving them), exponents, and factoring quadratic expressions (among others) seen in a typical Algebra 1 course. I also have tutoring experience with students as young as ten, helping them to understand the complicated math needed, even when they're having a hard time understanding it on their own. For anyone looking for Abstract Algebra 1 (sometimes abbreviated to Algebra 1), I also am familiar with Groups, Rings, Fields, homomorphisms and isomorphisms, among the other topics in a typical Abstract Algebra course, and I've tutored this subject as well (I was a TA for this class for two semesters; once out of the Fraleigh book and the other time out of Saracino).
Calculus,

Calculus

As a high school student, I took AP Calculus BC and got a 5 on the exam (I never took AP Calculus AB, but the course I took covered the same material, but faster). I then took Honors Calculus 2 at my University, earning an A, and Multivariate Calculus, and my final grade was over 100 on account of some extra credit. I am very familiar with all Calculus topics, including derivatives (power rule, product rule, quotient rule, chain rule, implicit differentiation) and limits (even the delta-epsilon proofs), related rates, integrals and integral techniques (u-sub, integration by parts, trig sub), volumes of revolution, polar and parametric equations, and series (convergence, Taylor/Maclaurin series). I am also familiar with partial derivatives and multiple integrals, as well as Green's Theorem, Stokes' Theorem, and the Divergence Theorem.

Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

In high school, I took a course called Discrete Mathematics where we learned about graph theory, combinatorics, poker probabilities, lottery probabilities, and similar things. I have also taken college courses on combinatorics, graph theory, number theory, cryptography, and group theory. I'm familiar with Markov chains and stochastic processes as well. Discrete math kind of encapsulates a wide variety of mathematics, but I'm quite comfortable with a lot of it.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

I have a Master's Degree in Mathematics. I'm also very familiar with the concepts of Finite Mathematics, including sets and probability, counting (permutations/combinations), linear equations, linear programming, and Markov chains. I have two years of experience applying these ideas to solve real world problems in the business world.
Logic,

Logic

I have a Master's degree in Mathematics, where I took six years of courses involving proofs (in a mathematical setting). Specifically, I have taken graduate courses on Algebra, Analysis, Topology, and Number Theory. I TA'd (essentially a tutoring position) a class involving universal quantifiers, truth tables, and basic proof strategies (direct, contrapositive, induction, contradiction) for one year and an introductory course to Abstract Algebra (also one year). I also graded both courses, giving helpful feedback to students to help them understand their mistakes.

Great tutor with great math skills

Ryan taught one of my students pre-calculus. He is patient and knowledgeable. And he response my request very fast too. I would like to recommend him for anyone who needs a math tutor.

Aaron, 2 lessons with Ryan

Great help!

Ryan was quick in identifying the issues, he explained to me the reasons for the failure and give me recommendations to resolve it. Excellent help! I would definitely recommend him.

Carlos, 1 lesson with Ryan

Great tutor

We went through some practice problem. He showed me the enumerate and lambda functions. Was able help me solve the 3 problems came to him with questions. Would use him again.

Erika, 1 lesson with Ryan

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

He knew exactly where things needed to go. He was very specific and was truly patient with all my new beginnings. I totally recommend him for python and discrete mathematics and he will definitely keep you up to date in the current state of things.

Mark, 4 lessons with Ryan

Great tutor!

The tutor knows mathematics and was Very Responsive and Patient when it came to helping me. Thank you for the help

Great tutor! Very Responsive and Patient

However, some of the questions we thoroughly went over how to solve were not correct when I applied them for grading and I did not pass my assignment.

yera, 3 lessons with Ryan

Great tutor!

He's a very good teacher and explains difficult concepts in a simple manner. If you need math help Ryan will help you! He's been helping me with my university math courses and I wouldn't need help from anyone else.

Zoran, 1 lesson with Ryan

Knowledgeable tutor!

He takes time to explain things if you do not understand! Took the time to explain homework problems that I did not catch on right quick! Does not make you feel rushed! Has a lot of patience! Thank you so much! :)

Cryptography

For Cryptography there is no good tutor except Ryan in Wyzant. He is smart, and respectful. To be honest he is the best in Cryptography!
