Hello there!

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Biology from the University of Wisconsin system and I'm a current third 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, MCAT, and USMLE Step 1 with students scoring up to the 99th percentile for all three exams! I have also worked extensively 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!

Knowledge

Ryan is extremely helpful, knows the material I needed help with. Will definitely be having more lessons with him. He was very patient and polite. Definitely recommend others to have lesson with him.

Riya, 1 lesson with Ryan

Excellent teacher & Tutor.

Ryan made me stretch and put the pieces together of things I knew as well as helping kind the missing pieces that were causing me problems in chemistry and biochemistry. Easy to understand and follow.

Theresa, 1 lesson with Ryan

Organized, Exceptionally Bright, Relatable Tutor

Ryan's help in tutoring our son has been incredible. Our son had 17 sessions with Ryan for SAT prep. He absolutely understands all learning styles and is able to evaluate and zero in on specific areas where a student needs more help. He explains his thought process, writes notes for the student to study outside of sessions, gives amazing feedback and his insight into the student's academic mind is exemplary. Within the first one to two sessions, Ryan was able to create a plan that would best benefit our son's ability to do well on the SAT. He is systematic in his approach, highly organized and focused. Ryan's communication with us regarding our son's progress was stellar. He sent practice tests or sections of practice tests and scored them outside of the sessions, which was very kind. Our son's practice test scores improved a lot with Ryan's help. Our son has had numerous tutors over the years and I can say without a doubt that Ryan is at the top of the list. While a bit more expensive than other tutors, he is absolutely worth it. Our son was comfortable and motivated to do work with Ryan. Ryan was very encouraging and patient as well. Absolutely will work with him again anytime!

Very knowledgeable and patient, responsive and kind.

My daughter needed a tutor for Chemistry 101 and Ryan has been a huge help so far. He really takes the time to teach each section and makes sure she understands it.

Claudine , 7 lessons with Ryan

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.

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.

Sean, 1 lesson with Ryan

Knowledgeable and super understanding

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.
