Are you looking for truly expert help from someone with a nuanced pedagogy and a dynamic teaching style? Have you tried other tutors who haven't worked for you? Let me help. I'm a local college professor of English as well as the founder of Bootstrap Tutors.

My goals in tutoring are not only to help you get top scores, but also to develop core skills that will serve you well throughout life. I believe that the best education can only happen one-on-one with a dedicated student and an expert teacher, and so I founded a company dedicated to that idea. No "tips or tricks" will help if you don't truly understand the material, and that's exactly what I teach my students to do.

As a professor for thousands of college students and as a private tutor for hundreds of tutees over the past 12 years, I have developed nuanced approaches for inspiring motivation and achieving the highest success, as well as proprietary methods for prepping for standardized tests. My clients ace their classes, attain stellar scores, and get into top colleges. More importantly, they master the skills that underlie those achievements.

Example Test-Prep Results (names removed for privacy):
"Student 1": SAT - 800 SAT Verbal; accepted offer from UChicago
"Student 2": SAT - 1590 SAT; accepted offer from Dartmouth
"Student 3": SAT - 790 SAT Verbal; ACT - 36 Reading, 36 Writing
"Student 4": ACT - 33 Reading, 32 English; accepted offer from UPenn

Subjects: I offer tutoring the verbal and writing sections of the SAT, ACT, GRE, and GMAT, for college and graduate admissions, and for English, French, Latin, and Ancient Greek.

Location: I will come to your home or meet you wherever you find convenient (the library, a cafe, online, etc.).

How It Works: After you contact me, I will set up a free initial phone consultation with you to discuss your goals and outline an initial curriculum. We'll collaboratively adapt this curriculum as necessary. Sessions typically last 60 or 90 minutes and are scheduled for once or twice a week. After every session, I will send a detailed tutoring report outlining what we worked on and homework to be completed for our next session as well as any additional comments.

Rates: My rates are $150/hr, with a discount of 10% off a package of 10 or more lessons.

Further Info: Further results, testimonials, and other information are available at our website. Just Google "Bootstrap Tutors!"

Just send me an email or give me a call to schedule your free consultation!

"Ryan was recommended to us by a friend. Our daughter was struggling through an intense English class. As parents, we tried to help her, but we found we were lost as far as how to approach the material and what the teacher wanted. Ryan really helped us out of a pinch. After the class was done, we decided to continue with tutoring. We realized how valuable it is to help our daughter develop good writing skills. It seems like one of the better educational investments we can make." ~ Lea K.
