Hello,

I am an experienced geographic information systems (GIS) specialist and archaeologist living in Fort Collins, Colorado. I can teach you anything you'd like to know about GIS, as well as enable proficiency with prevailing GIS software and technology. I have graduate certificate from Northern Arizona University in GIS, and have been doing GIS work professionally for six years. I also have a bachelor's degree with a double major from Western Carolina University in Anthropology and English - Professional Writing. I have been practicing archaeology for nearly 10 years. I would be happy to catch you up to date on archaeological methods, theory, history, and technology.

Do you have a burning desire to create striking and informative maps? Will the knowledge of GIS give you a heads up in your chosen profession? Have you ever wanted to know how to flintknap your own arrowheads (or projectile points, as we archaeologists refer to them)? If so, please contact me about setting up a personalized tutoring schedule.

While earning my undergrad degree, I worked with the University Learning Center and tutored students in anthropology and archaeology. I found that everyone learns in their own way, at their own pace. I will do my best to arrange our tutoring sessions so as to maximize efficiency and knowledge retention.

For GIS tutoring, I will be following the basic framework laid out in the GIS Tutorial 1-3 by ESRI Press, as well as more advanced techniques as they are called for. The only way to learn how to use GIS software is to actually sit down and explore its capabilities. I have access to the necessary software, and will hold hands-on sessions to bring the student to a proficient level of working knowledge.

Thank you,

Travis

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Anthropology

I graduated in 2004 from Western Carolina University with double major in anthropology and English - professional writing. In addition, I have worked professionally in the field of archaeology (a sub-field of anthropology) for nearly 10 years now. I have a strong grasp of the major tenants of anthropology, and would like to impart my knowledge to those who could use it.

Archaeology

I have practiced archaeology professionally since 2005. I am currently employed as a GIS specialist/archaeologist at centennial archaeology, Inc. in Fort Collins, Colorado. I am familiar with all aspects of Cultural Resource Management projects (of which archaeology is a main portion). I have participated in more than 100 archaeological projects in varying capacities from field technician to crew chief to lead GIS support.

Computer Science

As a GIS Specialist, part of my job is to know the intricate inner-workings of computer hardware and software. I have acted in the capacity of IT Specialist, as well as GIS Specialist at Centennial Archaeology, Inc. for the last 5 years. I have established and improved upon a central office server system, set up countless computers, built computers from boxed components, and performed troubleshooting on hardware and software issues on nearly every computer in the office. I have a firm grasp of computer repair and recovery, networking, connectivity, and computer operation. I have written and created many illustrated tutorials for my co-workers on everything from setting up an email to connecting to a remote VPN to imaging a hard drive to a virtual disk.
