"A member of Mensa High IQ Society who scored a perfect 2400 on the SAT and in the 99th percentile on the ACT, Ryan is one of the most accomplished ACT tutors in the country. A former top-tier Kaplan Instructor, Ryan has helped his students get into numerous Ivy League schools. Many still keep in contact to report their academic successes, even years after the fact. He has received tremendous reviews from students and parents alike for his friendly disposition, and ability to get results. Ryan is the founder of Tutors Across America, www.TutorsAcrossAmerica.com and is currently available for exclusive one-on-one tutoring for students looking for the very best test prep in the US."
So that's a little bit about my academic credentials. But the qualification I'm most proud of, is that I CARE MORE than any ACT tutor I've ever met. I lose more sleep anxiously waiting for my students to get their scores back than they do. I'm an Eagle Scout, current Cub Scout leader, former candidate for Lt. Governor of Nevada, and proud husband & father of 5 year old twins, and 1 year old twins (God has a sense of humor). But mostly I'm just a guy who's lucky enough to live his dream. I get paid to do what I love- help high-school students improve their ACT scores so dramatically that they can get into their dream schools. In addition to the tutoring, I also have students take 3-6 full length practice tests during tutoring sessions. Unlike most tutors, I don't charge for prep. time, grading, or administering the tests. Just actual "sitdown" tutoring time. I give students the tests with specific instructions on how to take them on their own, or have a parent/friend/librarian, etc. act as a proctor. This allows students to take the tests at their convenience, and spares you the expense of paying a tutor to read a book for 4 hours while keeping time during a test.
As part of the tutoring, I'll give the students an answer guide to each of the problems on the practice tests. This allows them to review and learn what they did wrong. Then we sit down and review any questions they're still unsure of during the next session. I like to focus my teaching on a student's areas of weakness on the test. There's no point in covering material they already understand.
I'm based out of Las Vegas. All of my out of state tutoring is done through Skype, which allows me to work seamlessly with a student, as if we were sitting in the same room. I've done ACT tutoring via Skype with students all across the US, and in 7 countries. I mail out the books a student will need before our first session. I'd be happy to answer any questions you have. Feel free to call or email me anytime.
I offer 2 different tutoring packages.
Package A: 10 hrs. of private ACT tutoring, including 3 practice tests, books, etc. for $999.
Package B: 20 hrs. of private ACT tutoring, including 6 practice tests, books, etc. for $1799.
