About Maxwell


Bio

I have always enjoyed and excelled in math and physics. This was a major factor in my decision to study mechanical engineering at Arizona State University, where I graduated magna cum laude. During a portion of my time at ASU, I worked as a student tutor in the engineering tutoring center where I helped fellow students understand homework and test problems. In addition, I have tutored multiple high school students in math or physics on a private basis.

I strive to not only explain concepts...

I have always enjoyed and excelled in math and physics. This was a major factor in my decision to study mechanical engineering at Arizona State University, where I graduated magna cum laude. During a portion of my time at ASU, I worked as a student tutor in the engineering tutoring center where I helped fellow students understand homework and test problems. In addition, I have tutored multiple high school students in math or physics on a private basis.

I strive to not only explain concepts in ways that make sense to the student, but to also help train him/her in how to think and approach problems. I do my best to encourage students and provide a positive attitude in midst of the frustration and dread that many times develops while studying these subjects.

While I am in a season of job-seeking, I am grateful for the opportunity to help students feel more confident in and hopefully even enjoy math and physics. (Subjects: Pre-algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-calculus, Calculus, Statistics and Physics)

I have always done well in math and physics. From taking advanced courses in high school to entering and graduating magna cum laude from ASU. The course work for my degree in mechanical required a significant amount of math and physics. During my time at ASU, I worked as a student tutor at ASU's engineering tutoring center. I also have experience tutoring high school students in math and physics on a private basis.

Professional and very knowledgeable

Max is very professional and brings a calm, light hearted, patient teaching style. My daughter was very comfortable from the start and they worked through a fair number of concepts and problems.

Sean, 2 lessons with Maxwell

Knowledge and very good at explaining concepts

Max did a fantastic job helping me understand the physics concepts that I was having trouble with and made sure that I was understanding each concept throughly.

Lia, 2 lessons with Maxwell

Must be magic

Max came for his first visit with my son who struggles quite a bit with Algebra I. After 2 1/2 hours of studying with Max, we had to tear my son away because he didn't want to stop learning! After Max left my son was so happy & excited, he couldn't stop smiling. I can't recommend Max enough considering he can get my son in such a positive place in just one visit.

Heather, 6 lessons with Maxwell

Very knowledgeable

Did a great job covering questions from my last quiz. I now have a better understanding of limits now. I learn more in two hours then in the last two weeks.

Alexandra, 18 lessons with Maxwell

Extremely knowledgable on calculus

Maxwell taught me limits, derivatives, integration, implicit differentiation and much more. I took an online Calculus class and was able to complete it in 7 weeks with 10 hours of Maxwell's help. I am so glad I found him. He came to my home and stayed on track using every moment to help me focus. Maxwell was very professional, polite and came prepared to teach. I am so thankful for his time and knowledge. I will gladly use him in the future.

Great Tutor!

My daughter is taking a Calculus class at CGCC and Max was able to help her on short notice. He was prompt, polite and easy to work with. He explained things in a way she could understand and I would highly recommend him
