Ryan Wicker recently joined Fusion Academy as one of our math and science teachers. Beyond his position as Teacher, Ryan also plays a role in the Homework Café, offering guidance and support to students.
Ryan received his BS in Philosophy at George Mason University. He moved to Brooklyn soon after graduating and began to pursue a variety of trades, including jewelry work, mask making, metalsmithing, tattoo artistry, and creative writing. His lifelong passion for teaching inevitably led him to City College, where he fulfilled his Masters in Science Education degree.
With a father in the Navy and a mother from India, Ryan grew up traveling the world, an experience that ignited a passion for exploring different skills and traditions. His time abroad deeply informed his believe that communication is always possible—and that you can learn something from anyone.
When he is not teaching at Fusion Academy, Ryan performs a weekly, semi-educational, Science-based stand-up routine as “The Minister of Science”, as well as pursuing his many hobbies.
