About Travis

I am currently an English major at Kean University. I graduated with a Sports Management degree from Mt. St. Mary's University in 2012. I started coaching High School Lacrosse, and I found out that this is my passion. By studying English at Kean University, I am able to teach high school students and coach lacrosse. When I was at Mt. St. Mary's University, I tutored other students in business and English courses.

English is more than just reading and analyzing, it is about understanding. Many readings in today's schools are older and students lose interest. I like to help the student understand and relate those readings to today's world. Getting them to understand helps them be more creative and think outside the box.

As an English tutor, I can help students with:

-How to set up a quote in a paper
-Annotations
-Showing that history and literature are intertwined
-Making you think
-Literary movements
-Interpreting literature
-Reading out loud
-Rereading
-Putting yourself in the historical context
-Debating ideas
-Appreciation for poetry
-Relating literature to today
-Organization
