Introduction: - Currently work as a homeschool teacher - 10 years of experience teaching and tutoring hundreds of K-College students in math, reading, writing, social studies, and science, including SAT, ACT, and AP test preparation - Masters of Arts in Teaching (UC Irvine, 2014) - Multiple Subject Teaching Credential (UC Irvine, 2012) - BA in History (UC Irvine, 2008) - Taught 6th Grade (all subjects) at Oxford Preparatory Academy I am a lifelong learner, and I feel fortunate to work in a profession that allows me to teach such a wide variety of subjects. I also love that tutoring gives me the opportunity to really get to know my students by working with them one on one. I am immensely proud of the impact I have had on so many students, from teaching a first grader how to read to helping a high school student get into the college of his dreams.

I highly recommend Ryan. He really helped my son with preparing for the ACT test. My son learned and understood so much information in a very limited time. I will definitely request his services again in the future for my daughter. Thank you Ryan!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    For most tutoring services, I charge $50 per hour.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I talk to a student about his or her interests in order to build a rapport. That way, the student will feel relaxed and comfortable asking questions. In addition, I administer a diagnostic test to determine a student's strengths and weaknesses and how these relate to the Common Core standards of the student's grade level. Furthermore, if I am helping a student with reading, I administer a diagnostic reading test in order to determine the student's Lexile reading level.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Masters of Arts in Teaching (2014), a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential (2012), and BA in History (2008). All of my degrees were conferred by the University of California, Irvine, where I graduated cum laude after earning a Regents Scholarship.
