About Travis


Bio

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.

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 Master’s 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!

As an undergraduate, I was a teaching assistant in anatomy.

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 12+ 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 8+ 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!

Excellent tutor.

A great teacher with a very good knowledge. He is always on time and did a great job in explaining various aspects of biology. I would strongly recommend Travis if you are looking for an excellent biology tutor.

Experienced Biology tutor

He taught me Ecology. I have learnt useful knowledge about Biology. Before I met him, I had no idea about how to do home works. Now I am confident enough. I know how to manage things in Biology.

One of the absolute best!!!

Travis was extremely patient and kind with my son who was struggling with AP Bio. He helped take him to another level and my son ended up enjoying the class and feeling much more confident going into the AP exam. Thank you for everything Travis you are the best!

Patty, 10 lessons with Travis

Travis is very professional, does his prep work, very intelligent and best of all a great teacher!

Travis M. met with my son and I to better understand his needs in biology. He then did a lot of research and he worked well with my son who doesn’t love school. My son is actually looking forward to his next lesson - this is perfect!
