Ryan is fascinated by sharing ideas with people, and has been doing so with PrepMatters since 2007.

Ryan grew up in Maine, doing the usual Maine nerd things: math club; theater; logic puzzles; playing tuba; going to independent movies; and shamelessly listening to punk rock, hip-hop, and cheesy 80’s pop anthems. You get the idea.

He has a BA in English and Philosophy from Gordon College (’05) and a JD from Georgetown Law Center (’10). Ryan spends his free time on way too many hobbies: cooking, reading, playing guitar, and hanging out with his family.


Listen carefully and openly. Give constructive feedback and direction. Listen some more.


“I’m done with the GRE! 166 in verbal and 168 in math. Ryan was so helpful. He had great advice, worked with my individual learning style, and was very encouraging. PrepMatters is the best!”
- Hillary, Princeton University

Prep Matters quickly assessed my child's needs, zeroed in on the gaps and struggles, and helped her address them. They were great and effective communicators and the scores showed it! And they developed a great working rapport over skype and Facetime since we live far from the D.C. area!

Whether it's standardized test prep, or working one-on-one with an academic tutoring, my daughter has had a great experience working with PrepMatters tutors!
