About Travis

I am currently attending UNR to receive my bachelor's degree in philosophy with a minor in history. I enjoy learning and spreading what I have learned to new people who are willing to share in the experience with me. I like to read all kinds of books in my free time, but I enjoy philosophy books the most. I always approach things in a philosophical way and with an open mind, I try to understand everyone's perspective on everything. I specialize mainly in philosophy, history, and English. I am a very patient person and will be willing to help anyway I can to get somebody through the problems they are having. I look forward to meeting new people on this new journey in my life!

To teach someone, I like to move at their own pace and work with them to help their needs. I'm a firm believer that moving at your own pace allows one to learn more and that nobody should have to go at a different pace, because they won't absorb the material as well. I also like to try and allow the person I'm helping learn attempt the way that works best for them. I am also here to learn as well, so don't be shy to let me know how I'm doing, and how I might be able to better myself.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Cooking

When I first started college I was majoring in culinary arts before I switched to philosophy. I have been working in the food business ever since my second job. I have learned all sorts of knowledge when it comes to cooking, because I've been in the industry for so long. The one thing that people don't realize is that cooking is easy when you understand the basics of it, its also a skill everybody should know.
