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 14 years, and have served as a Table Leader and Question 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 12+ 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!

Knowledgeable AP biology tutor, helped me get a 5

Travis helped me prepare for school exams and AP exams. He is very knowledgeable and has lots of resources and practice questions on any bio topic to help his students. Travis is very kind and great at explaining. I was able to do well in my class and received a 5 on the 2021 AP Biology exam. I highly recommend working with Travis for any help with biology.

Samara, 13 lessons with Travis

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.
