My name is Travis and I'm a Caltech PhD with extensive teaching and tutoring experience. I have been a high school math teacher (advanced math courses), a college TA in chemical engineering, a tutor for collegiate math and science courses, as well as a professional tutor to a range of private students in math and chemistry (individuals and group settings). I am currently a professor at the Claremont colleges.

Math and science have been a passion of mine ever since I was a teenager. In high school, I excelled in all core AP classes and was valedictorian of my class. I graduated magna cum laude from BYU with a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering and then earned a master's degree and PhD in the same discipline from Caltech. My expertise lies in math and chemistry, but am also well versed in physics and biology.

Additionally, I lived in Cape Verde for two years and speak Portuguese fluently. I have 4 years of experience teaching curriculum-based Portuguese speaking, reading and writing.

When I tutor, the teacher inside of me comes out and I want to ensure that students are learning, not just regurgitating information that I feed them. My purpose is to help them learn, not do their homework for them. With over 10 years of experience, I have learned a lot about how to help students learn and to ensure that they actually learned the principles I am teaching them.

If you think that you or your child will benefit from my professional experience as a teacher/tutor and my breadth of knowledge in the math and sciences as a Caltech graduate and research scientist, I would love to hear from you.

Knowledgeable and good communicator.

Travis helped with Algebra 2. He definitely knows his stuff and knows how to teach. My son connected and absorbed what Travis was saying and teaching. We will continue to call on Travis.
