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

My tutor was accessible and more importantly, punctual. His easy manner and ability to understand the difficulty I was experiencing. Dean helped me through it in a way that made it possible for me to proceed, in a confident manner, accomplishing the necessary procedures. Dean was very helpful in walking me through the processes of both utilizing software provided with my camera, as well giving me instruction concerning the storage and separation of folders and files within folders. He also instructed me on various aspects of my computer which this novice considered GREEK! Bottom line; he's just easy to work with and his attitude is conducive to learning.

David K. continues to do an excellent job with my daughter. They have made significant progress in a very short time. His patience and techniques as well as his communication style are very positive. Strongly recommend David for anyone getting ready for the math portions of the SAT or ACT.
