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 nine 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 40 years old. 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 three 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!
During the summer of 2014, I taught trigonometry and algebra 1 at De La Salle High School here in New Orleans. It was a fantastic experience to help students with unique learning styles and I highly enjoyed getting back in the classroom.
Contact me if you are ready to begin a new and enjoyable understanding of math!
I taught a specialized ACT Math preparation course in Colorado at an at-risk high school during spring of the 2013 school year. I have extensive knowledge of not only the topics covered on the exam, but also specific test taking skills for the ACT. With a tight window of needing to answer one question per minute to finish the exam, students must learn how to read the questions and take shortcuts to solve long, tricky problems.
I have taught two different sections of Algebra 2 during the 2012 school year. I worked with students from all backgrounds to help them with all topics, from solving basic equations to polynomials and quadratics.
With all math classes, especially Algebra 2, I try to show students multiple problem solving methods so that they can find the method that best suits them. Whether it's graphing, using specific formulas, or using mental math, students should have the opportunity to find the method that works best for them.
Great Tutor — Max has truly helped my son in math. He has shown him how to understand the math section of the ACT and his score increased. We also see higher scores on his math tests. We are super pleased and would recommend Max for tutoring. We have seen tremendous improvement and my son now maintains A or high B average in class. We just received his ACT and he went up another point and received the score he ...
