About Travis

MIT PhD. MIT Masters. Patents, Publications, and Awards. I am an entrepreneur, educator, scientist, and writer. I enjoy teaching and fostering students, building long-term mentoring relationships, and making sure that all of my students accomplish their goals (internally, and externally). Tutoring is so much more than rote learning, and I have formulated my approach based on nine years of teaching (three at Princeton, six at MIT, and 1000+ hours of one-on-one tutoring).

I have a keen sixth sense for diagnosing the challenges a student faces, within a given subject, by the first lesson. My second lesson lays out a broad plan for overcoming these obstacles, and more often than not, my students will exceed my expectations and become independent. My goal is always to put myself out of work by empowering my students. It's not the best business model, but it is the most rewarding one. Many of my students have gone to the Ivy League, or equivalent universities.

I Have helped students achieve perfect SAT scores. My philosophy is that a tutor should be overqualified in order to teach a subject. Therefore, my subject knowledge exceeds any content I teach, typically by an order of magnitude.

Please contact me with any questions. I am keenly aware that tutoring is a two-way street, and the "right fit" for a tutor is just as important as their qualifications. 50% refund your introductory session, if it's not the "right fit."
