AP BIOLOGY REVIEW SESSIONS!!!

I will be conducting AP BIOLOGY REVIEW SESSIONS on Monday nights at 8pm EST from March 8th - May 13th, 2021.

My name is Travis M. I graduated from Michigan State University in 1996, with a Bachelor of Science in Lyman Briggs Zoology. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school (at MSU) and taught a number of science courses at the University level. During this time I also entered the Teacher Education program offered by MSU and completed it in the spring of 1999. MSU's Teacher Education program is routinely rated as one of the best education schools in the country, and I believe it helped me sharpen my skills as a teacher. During the summer of 2000, I completed my Masters Degree in Zoology. My research entailed studying the effects of platinum containing chemotherapeutic drugs on various tissues and their enzyme systems in the Wistar rat. My graduate course work included many biology and chemistry courses as well as some course work in teacher methodology. I believe my wealth of experience teaching biology enables me to help students understand and enjoy the subject about which I am so passionate!

I have taught introductory biology, as well as upper level courses in the biological and zoological sciences to undergraduate students while in graduate school at Michigan State University.

I have taught AP Biology for 16+ years.

I have graded AP Biology exams for 11 years, and currently serve as a Table Leader at the annual AP Reading.

I am a consultant who hosts workshops to instruct teachers new to teaching AP Biology.

I have taught HL and SL IB Biology for 11+ years.

I encourage you to take advantage of the services I have to offer you as a student. Working together, we can improve your understanding of biology and enable you to enjoy the topic more and hopefully improve your test scores at the same time!

Travis is an incredible AP biology teacher

My son has had a handful of lessons with Travis so far, and his confidence in approaching the AP biology exam has grown exponentially. Travis is teaching him to handle the free response questions in a much more systematic, organized fashion, and also honing in on the substantive areas he needs to study. Travis is also kind, highly punctual, responsive, and time-efficient. We are very grateful to have Travis in our court, and my son will continue working with him up to the May AP exam.

Stacy, 9 lessons with Travis

Great tutor!

My son is on his third session with Travis and he feels that he is really benefitting. Travis is patient and explains concepts well. Plus he sends notes after the session. We will plan to continue tutoring with Travis.

Very helpful AP Bio tutor!

My son just had his first session with Travis, and found him very helpful both with respect to giving him tips about the AP test, but also in reviewing material with him to help prepare for an upcoming quiz. He is clearly very knowledgeable about bio and has a lot of practice problems available. He also helped my son with more advanced interpretations of graphs and data and explained concepts clearly. Thanks, Travis!

Michael, 3 lessons with Travis

Very knowledgeable tutor

Travis explains AP Biology concepts in an easy to understand and relatable way. He is good at reinforcing what is being taught in class and filling in gaps where my daughter didn't understand the topic.

Jenn, 11 lessons with Travis

Knowledgeable, great and thorough teacher

Travis was great in explaining my daughter AP bio thoroughly. She was able to get more confident on the chapter after his session. Will be booking him for further sessions.

Veena, 2 lessons with Travis

Detailed and easy to understand explanations

Excellent at teaching difficult concepts in a way that is easily understood and retained. Moves at a good pace. Answers questions thoroughly, and gives helpful advice outside the scope of the questions that are asked.

Fantastic tutor!! Highly recommend!!

Travis was wonderful!! My daughter needed to submit her IB IA. She was having a lot of difficulty. Travis helped her understand how to proceed and worked with her throughout the process. I would not hesitate to recommend Travis as a tutor, he is phenomenal!!

Amy, 6 lessons with Travis

Fantastic tutor!! Highly recommend!!

Travis was wonderful!! My daughter’s previous tutor confused her far more than she helped her. With Travis’s help and guidance she now has a clear understanding of how to proceed with her IA. He was amazing, my daughter is now excited to dive in to her research.

Amy, 6 lessons with Travis
