Experienced Patient Tutor: Math and Stats through University Level
Professional private tutor with 10 years of diverse experience working with students from diverse backgrounds, ages, education and skill levels. Because of this wide range of experiences, I'm very adaptable, and work well with just about anyone.
My formal education is in pure mathematics. I earned a bachelor's degree with honors at Berkeley, and a master's degree at Cambridge in the UK. For the last 3 years I've focused on practical topics related to data analysis: statistics, probability,...

Great tutor
Ryan Maxwell W. is a great tutor. His knowledge and passion about mathematics coupled with his patience, ability to explain the subject matter, and ability to really see the strengths and weaknesses that a student possesses make him a great find. He is punctual and has increased our student's confidence, understanding and interest in the material as well as test performance.

Flexible and Patient
Ryan is very in tune with where you are getting tripped up on complex problems. This to me is a sign of an instructor/tutor that knows his craft through and through. I would highly recommend him for people who want to learn to solve ..not just an answer given away!

This person knows their stuff!!
GRADUATE MATH REVIEW: Ryan was VERY prepared prior to our first tutoring session. He had thoroughly reviewed the material I had sent him beforehand, set up the meeting for us nicely, including using a shared notebook, and slowed down during the session to fully explain whatever question I stopped him with.

Very helpful, provides rationale behind the concepts
Patient, friendly, knows statistics, goes the extra mile and is very flexible in his scheduling of the time. Uses multiple tools to help as well (screen share), joint writing on ipad screen, etc.

Incredibly Patient
Ryan is one of the most spectacular math tutors I have ever worked with. I spent a lot of time on wyzant looking for someone who could help with a graduate-level data science course which was a mix of calculus, probability theory, computer programming, and statistics. Ryan moved adeptly between disciplines, was incredibly patient with my newness to the field of study, and was even able to tackle subjects new to him because of his fundamental comfort with challenging math. I will be in touch with him should further math coursework be necessary in my PhD program.

Great tutor, flexible and accessible
Due to my son's illness Ryan was a frequent visitor in our home. Ryan brings a calm and surety to his tutoring sessions and was a huge help in getting through a very tough academic year. I would highly recommend Ryan.

Very capable tutor
Ryan helped me with complex derivations and problem solving in fluid dynamics. He was a very effective and efficient tutor. Although he did not have experience tutoring in my specific type of application of fluid dynamics (atmospheric sciences), he was able to figure it out quickly, with his strong abilities in applications of physics concepts, and teach it to me. Not only did he learn the material rather quickly, but he was also great at explaining complex math and physics to me. Given that it was a graduate level fluid dynamics course, his intellectual curiosity and ability to grasp new concepts quickly were commendable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for help in any quantitative course. Additionally, he was flexible and easy to reach despite his busy schedule. When we couldn't work out a time to meet, he was still proactive about helping by working from home on his own time and answering my questions. I would recommend his services 100%.

Extremely patient tutor who goes out of his way to help his student.
Ryan tutored me for linear algebra, as well as in differential equations. Linear wasn't my cup of tea, and I definitely wouldn't have passed linear algebra without his help. Ryan is very responsive, and can be reached by txt, email, and Dropbox if you have any questions at any time. Ryan knows his stuff. And I would recommend him to anyone struggling in a college level math class (or any level math class). Thank you Ryan!
