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.
