Ryan got his start tutoring through his high school’s National Honor Society way back when MySpace was a thing; he continued to sharpen his skills during college, working with students primarily on math homework and essay-writing. After graduating from UNC Chapel Hill with a double major in Political Science and Ancient History, Ryan decided to turn his passion for one-on-one instruction into his profession, and he’s been with Inspirica ever since.

Since joining the company, Ryan has worked with students on everything from 5th grade math to graduate school entrance exams. All told, he has almost 15 years of experience teaching students of a wide range of ages and learning styles, from self-directed young professionals looking for guidance as they prep independently to 10-year-olds who need to take regular cartwheel breaks.

Ryan tutors a variety of academic subjects, with math and writing being his favorites, as well as most of the least popular acronyms: SSAT, ISEE, ACT, SAT, LSAT, GMAT, and GRE. The thing he enjoys most about the job is making connections and building rapport with students of all ages, and though he doesn’t have a ‘favorite’ test to tutor, he can occasionally be found doing LSAT logic games in his spare time. If Ryan had to pick a proudest tutoring moment, it would be when he helped a student improve her score from a 21 to a 30 on the ACT; watching her grow in confidence over the course of the program and then apply to colleges that she initially wasn’t even considering was the perfect microcosm of what he loves about tutoring.

When he’s not working, Ryan is usually doing crossword puzzles, gaming (either video games or board games – he’s not picky), or going on walks with his dog Clover, who represents the other half of the Durham, NC branch of Inspirica. Clover is often asleep in her bed next to Ryan’s desk while he works, and if you listen closely, you may even be able to hear the occasional puppy snore during a session…

A one-time setup fee of $99-$395.
Individual one-on-one sessions for $245/hour.


An Overview of Inspirica's Premier Prep System

Each tutor works with a limited number of students, and there is a one-time fee to reserve a spot on the tutor’s roster. Doing so grants you immediate access to the tutor’s calendar via My Account, allowing you to book sessions at the days and times of your choosing.

Sessions can be booked up to 45 days in advance. Once a session is booked it can be rescheduled at no charge up to 24 hours prior. All sessions take place using Zoom, and links to the Zoom meeting will be listed on your calendar at My Account.
