About me

My name is Ryan Trusler and I study Maths and Economics at the University of St Andrews in Scotland.

Later on, I saw how maths merged with other subjects like chemistry, physics, accounting and economics - subjects that presented new and interesting challenges.

My name is Ryan Trusler and I study Maths and Economics at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. Maths is something I've always been passionate about - perhaps even too passionate - from a young age, and I enjoyed taking on new problems and quizzes at school. Later on, I saw how maths merged with other subjects like chemistry, physics, accounting and economics - subjects that presented new and interesting challenges. While at school, my friends would often ask me for help to explain a concept, or to work through a problem. I found that this was one of the best ways to solidify and test my knowledge: if you can explain it in simple terms to someone else, then you understand it!


I played rugby and cricket while at school in South Africa, and continue to play rugby for the university. I am the treasurer of the 'Welly Ball' committee. My other hobbies are swimming, travelling, cooking and spending time with friends.

About my sessions

I believe that quick feedback is essential when learning, so sessions would be structured around learning the relevant theory for a particular section, and then applying the theory to solve a problem. This will help the concepts solidify, as well as building up confidence for tests and exams. I found at school that having well prepared notes and understanding from throughout the term time allowed me to revise much more easily when exam time came around, as I was revisiting things I had seen b...

I believe that quick feedback is essential when learning, so sessions would be structured around learning the relevant theory for a particular section, and then applying the theory to solve a problem. This will help the concepts solidify, as well as building up confidence for tests and exams. I found at school that having well prepared notes and understanding from throughout the term time allowed me to revise much more easily when exam time came around, as I was revisiting things I had seen before, rather than being stressed by new material when time was running out! Tests and exams are exactly that - they aim to test your knowledge of the subject, and if you are ready, prepared, and confident in yourself then they will be a breeze - even a way to show off to teachers!
