Hi! I’m Ryna. I am an artist and an educator. From playing teacher with my sisters at age seven to helping 4th graders with their homework in high school to working for Kaplan for three years after college, I have always been passionate about learning and teaching. Standardized tests are especially fun for me because I enjoy figuring out the puzzle the test makers are trying to use to trick me. This passion is what I hope to impart to the students I work with, along with the confidence needed to succeed.
I have known I wanted to be involved in education in some form for a long time, but it was only recently that I found the confidence to forge a new path for myself. It’s a scary journey so far, looking the unknown right in the face, but that little flutter of my heart lets me know I’m headed in the right direction.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey of self-discovery.
