A graduate of Brown University and the University of Wisconsin Law School, Mark Ryan
has been teaching math since 1989. He runs the Math Center in Winnetka, Illinois (www.themathcenter.com), where he teaches high school math courses including an introduction to calculus and a workshop for parents based on a program he developed, The 10 Habits of Highly Successful Math Students.
In high school, he twice scored a perfect 800 on the math portion of the SAT, and he not only knows mathematics, he has a gift for explaining it in plain English. He practiced law for four years before deciding he should do something he enjoys and use his natural talent for mathematics.
