About this tutor

Tutoring for Math, Programming, and Spanish

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 II and Precalculus specifically. Altogether, I have over 700 hours of experience helping students understand math and programming concepts. 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 (all of these were on my first and only try).

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++.

Finally, I spent two years learning Spanish from native speakers of the language. I taught an informal Spanish class and have previous experience in tutoring Spanish. I also received the highest grade in the class of 30 students in a third year Spanish course at college.

I am available for tutoring in any of these areas. Resume and transcript upon request. You can either send me an email at [email protected] or text me at (804) 316-9324 for more info!

I love it when students go from thinking something doesn't make any sense to understanding it completely! I also enjoy going above and beyond with students that show an interest in learning more.

  • Aaron Q.

    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.

  • Carlos N.

    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.

  • Erika S.

    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.

  • Mark M.

    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.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

If you or your student has a specific need, then I'm happy to work with that. Otherwise, I can ask some diagnostic questions to figure out where a good place to start would be.

Due to the virus, meeting online would probably be best. But there are ways to do that which make it just as effective as being in person.


How did you get started teaching?

I always took an interest in helping my fellow students in the classes I was taking since high school. Following high school, I gave my local school district my information so that they could list me as a tutor. Since then, I've also had the opportunity to teach a Python course, which was my first official teaching position.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Finding a tutor that both knows math or programming and can teach it is often difficult. That's why I think I'd make a great tutor for you or your student: I have a Master's degree in Mathematics, and experience applying math and programming to real world jobs, but I also have a lot of experience teaching those things to students in need of help---many of my students have come to me confused, and left understanding things a lot better.
