Building Skills for the Classroom,
Educating for the Future.
I'm Andrea Ryan a tutor, and a strategic consultant based in Richmond, Va. Through my experience as a tutor and teacher over the past 8 years I have developed a unique method and approach to tutoring that is effective as it is personalized and intended to facilitate long term changes for success well beyond time spent tutoring. I am guiding hand to my students, proactive collaborator with their teachers, and strategic consultants for their parents.
"My mission is student centered and I believe the lesson plan should adjust to the learner, not the other way around. "
What our students say
"I learned to focus first on what motivates me and then take action and I feel like I have my life and education in my control. Along with everything else that goes along with preparing for college, Andrea also tutored me in SAT prep and she gave me the tools I needed to look at the test in a strategic and analytical way and my score improved by 400 points!"
"Thank you for the SAT tutoring that you provided me. On my first SAT test, I scored a 470 on the Critical Reading section. After Andrea's tutoring, I scored a 600 on that section and was accepted into the school of my choice. Thank you so much for your time and effort."
"Andrea was a unique tutor in that she helped me find my own passions and motivations so that I could then find the right college for me. Once we identified what characteristics I was looking for in a College, she mapped out a strategy to get me there."
"My experience with Andrea was the most helpful and worthwhile experience of any I have ever had with a tutor. She gives you the guidance and skills to solve your own problems. We worked together on a senior thesis paper I was struggling with. With Andrea's guidance and help, I received an A on the hardest paper I had to do in my college career. Without her I would have not passed."
