About Travis

I have previously studied Chinese at Yale University and studied Japanese and Chinese at Georgetown University. After that I went on to Georgetown University Law Center and practiced law in D.C. for 38 years specializing in Special Education Law. In terms of teaching experience I've taught at the University of the District of Columbia as well as a graduate course in Legal Issues in Education for the Washington Teachers Union.

At the present time I am retired from the practice of law and seeking to continue teaching on a part time basis. Although I could teach on a wide range to topics I would prefer to gravitate towards English as a second language, business law and/or special education issues.


I welcome conversation and chatting about different subjects in order to find the best fit.

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.

World History

As a voracious reader of world history, I have studied Asian history, including the rise of the mongols. My studies in Chinese and Japanese have led to knowledge about their customs and history, Those studies have also led to interactions with Europe, Africa and, subsequently, the Americas.
