"My name is Ryan and I have a wide variety of prior experiences in teaching and tutoring with young people. My primary areas of expertise are history/social studies, reading/writing skills, essay editing and support, college admissions essays, and test prep, especially SAT, GRE, and AP history exams (see below for my own scores).

History (both 8th and 11th Grade), and a World Today/Current Events elective. I have been consistently ranked "Highly effective" every year through New York State's annual professional review system.

I truly relish the opportunity to help prospective students grow as writers, whether their task is a college admissions essay, a term paper, or an SAT/ACT writing prompt.

I also have five years of experience teaching reading skills classes through a local university for students ages K-12, in which I helped students hone their skills in comprehension, textbook reading, fluency, beginning phonics, essay-writing, long-wor" less...
