My son is a learning disabled young adult who has dreams and aspirations that he will not give up on. Before, during, and after starting sessions with my son, Ryan did his research on the particular disability and on my son's career choice. Ryan works patiently with him and helps him understand concepts and reading and offers suggestions that my son can do on his own time. My son has had a couple of tutors when he was in school but he always felt they weren't there to actually help explain difficult educational areas and he felt he was treated as though different and at times stupid. Ryan tutors with respect and continues to come up with new ideas and concepts to help my son break those barriers that have escaped him understanding things in the past. I find Ryan very conscientious, diligent, resourceful, timely with lessons and feedback. Ryan is an excellent role model and I would recommend him whole-heartedly.

"Tutoring & Teaching Experience (12 yrs.) - Math, Physics, Reading"
In addition to my Learning Disability research focus on Dyslexia at Western Washington University, I have extensive experience working with students with ADHD. The reason I have acquired this knowledge and experience is because ADHD is highly co-morbid with Reading Disability (dyslexia), and other language disabilities. In fact, children with language disabilities are often misdiagnosed with ADHD as a root disability, when it is secondary to their language disability. ... More

"Ph.D. in Multi-Disciplinary Studies"
My teaching philosophy is somewhat eclectic and resists a neat philosophical classification. What I will attempt to do is to identify some themes which emerge from my teaching and let others determine whether these themes constitute any coherent pattern.
At the outset, I would state that teachers impart more by way of example than precept, and that students are very perceptive in recognizing when a teacher does not practice what (s)he preaches. There are several values that I try to teach ... ... More
"International & Intercultural PhD, Academic Writing, EFL Speaking"
Study skills should be tailor fit to the student's learning preferences, competing priorities (job, family), assessment of current study behavior, time management, and intrinsic and extrinsic motivations.
Once a profile of the student's daily schedule are addressed, a ratio of class time to study/homework time can be established.
After that, pinpointing the appropriate and available environment for student study is determined, based on a discussion with the student about the difference between "learning" and "acquisition".
The degree of difficulty for the student and the subjects will also ... More
