Hello there!

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Biology from the University of Wisconsin system and I'm a current second year and MD student at the Medical College of Wisconsin. I have experience working with a wide range of students: from working in elementary schools to adult students in college as well as working with centers for students with disabilities. I've tutored for standardized test prep, including the ACT, SAT, and MCAT, with students scoring up to the 99th percentile for all three exams! I have also worked in general subjects like science, English, and math from the elementary to graduate level. I love to work with students and help them succeed! I've also tutored and have specialty in biology, chemistry, anatomy, physiology, statistics, biochemistry psychology, sociology, English, math, writing, reading, and everything in between. Not only will you be able to get specialized and credible help in multiple subjects, but assistance with anything else that you could possibly need. Overall, I'm a very versatile tutor who can help with simple to incredibly complex coursework.

I'd love to work with you and I hope you'll consider contacting me for more information!

Very knowledgeable, attentive, and patient tutor

Ryan not only taught me how to tackle the reading, writing, and both math sections, but he taught me how to manage my time and all of the ins and outs when it comes to the daunting SAT. I like how Ryan was always very enthusiastic about starting the lesson and getting right to work. I liked how when I was stuck on a problem, he would help me out by giving me a hint or two or if I was completely lost, he would go through the problem step by step. When I was working hard on a problem, I liked how he gave me the time to think and then we would come together and discuss. Ryan has helped me accomplish a test that can be considered very worrisome for many highschoolers. Finally, he has helped me with my confidence when it comes to taking tests.

Ryan was very helpful and helped me look at problems differently! He helped my score go up in just 3 weeks! He was able to give me useful strategies, and I cant thank him enough.

Yuri, 4 lessons with Ryan

Super helpful and knowledgeable tutor

Ryan gave me tips on a super strategic approach to the C/P and CARS sections of the MCAT which I’ve been struggling on. I now feel confident I can tackle these sections! He was very friendly and had a wide range of knowledge to help customize the lesson to my needs.

Ryan was super helpful with the questions I had and answered all of them fully until I understood them. He never made me feel like any of my questions feel stupid. He was professional and very well-spoken.

Knowledgeable

He was amazing, really patient and an amazing teacher. I REALLY appreciated our time! I was very nervous after taking a class and it wasn’t going well and he really helped me calm down and focus on tangible goals.

Emily, 3 lessons with Ryan

Thank you!

Thank you so much for the last minute tips, and for the reassurance! I really appreciated both, particularly on such short notice. I'm working on integrating everything now and think I can go into the exam with a clearer head.

Super knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

I just had my second session with Ryan! We went over physics- everything clicks when he explains problems/answers to me. He is also super patient and nice, which I appreciate- especially since physics is my weakness.
