Hello! My name is Max and I am a very experienced math tutor looking to help anybody who seems to be running into a mental wall against math. Mathematics can seem to be a very complex field of study and very overwhelming at times, but I'm here to help. It is important to try many different teaching styles and I will find the right style that fits you. We can tackle math one problem at a time to build a solid foundation of knowledge. It's important to build a solid base of knowledge because all math builds on previous information and if one concept is not grasped, it will continually appear and prevent further understanding of additional topics.
I have been tutoring students for the past 8 years, initially starting with helping friends with homework and progressing to paid tutoring of fellow students. I can help in any math field that is needed - from elementary math, to basic algebra, to calculus, and I have tutored students with varying ages - from 6 to 30 years old. In high school, I missed 1 question on the SAT II math section and am willing to help push others to exceed my own accomplishments. In college, I was an undergraduate teaching assistant at the University of Pittsburgh for two semesters in courses titled Applied College Algebra and Algebra & Trigonometry. This position required me to hold recitations once a week for an hour as well as hold private office hours for 3 hours a week. In addition, I offered private tutoring to any student that entered the math assistance center where I tutored, and I met with three different students multiple times outside of my classroom responsibilities.
During the 2012-2013 school year, I worked in an at-risk high school as a math teacher. It was the experience of a lifetime and I have learned numerous new techniques to help students conquer their fear of math - including patience! Relating to students has always been my strong point and I offer a youthful energy that can make math fun again!
Contact me if you are ready to begin a new and enjoyable understanding of math!
