About Travis

Hi! I'm Travis, and I'm currently an undergraduate at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. I plan on majoring in Mathematics with a minor in Music (I play clarinet). I come from an very small town in the eastern part of the state of Washington.

I'm really into mathematics, but that's probably clear from my choice of major. In high school, I took AP Calculus BC and AP Statistics and earned a perfect score on both exams; I scored a 35 on the ACT Math section and a perfect 800 on the Math Level 2 SAT Subject Test. I took Multivariable Calculus, and for some variety, I was on my school's math team. I also published a paper, titled "An Exploration of Pandivisible Numbers" in the mathematics journal "Parabola". But you get the point: I'm into math.

And I'd love to help you! I really enjoy helping others with mathematics; I get to share my passion. Because of this, I approach math tutoring in a slightly different way than others do. I emphasize understanding of concepts instead of emphasizing computation. To be sure, computation is important, and I help with that aspect as well, but computation will follow from understanding, whereas understanding will not follow from computation. Additionally, if students truly understand the material, they will be fully prepared for any question on a test.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a lesson, feel free to contact me!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I earned an A in Algebra 1. I also scored a perfect 800 on the Math Level 2 SAT Subject Test, which tests, among other things, facility and knowledge of Algebra 1 material. Even when I was taking the class, I was helping my peers, and I'd be glad to help you, as well!

Algebra 2

I earned an A in Algebra 2. I also scored a perfect 800 on the Math Level 2 SAT Subject Test, which tests, among other things, facility and knowledge of Algebra 2 material. Even when I was taking the class, I was helping my peers, and I'd be glad to help you, as well!

Calculus

I studied AP Calculus BC and received a perfect score on the corresponding AP Exam. I also studied Multivariable Calculus and earned an A in the class. Throughout my time as a student, I helped my classmates with their questions and homework, ranging from help with a particular problem to overcoming a conceptual block.

I can help with Calculus AB, Calculus BC, and Multivariable Calculus. (Sometimes these are called Calculus I, II, III.)

Zach learned a ton! Things he was questioning, or didn't know how to do, he now knows how to do. He is so relieved, after only one lesson. He is smiling when thinking about doing his math homework. Thank you Travis!
