About Travis

Whether you're a high school or college junior/senior, it's never too early to begin thinking about college/postgrad admissions. I focus primarily on admissions essays as well as editing papers. My students have gone on to top 20 colleges and liberal arts colleges as well as some of the most well-known state universities. Undergraduates I have worked with are placed in T-15 law schools and top 10 business schools.

What I love about teaching is making the process fun, making the subject approachable, and showing students that they can do something they previously thought they couldn't. I'm flexible, easy to reach via email, and can handle last minute revisions if needed.

ABOUT

I majored in English at Rice University where I graduated Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude, Hanszen Academic Fellow emeritus, with English honors. I then went on to receive my master's from Yale University.

As an Academic Fellow at Rice, I was responsible for tutoring over 300 students in my residential college. I have been published for my writings in architecture; I conducted research as an undergraduate; and I have given academic talks at both Rice and Yale. I received perfect scores on the English and writing portions of the SAT and later received a perfect score on the English section of the GRE.
