About Max

I am a 5th year classroom teacher from Fayetteville, Arkansas. I have taught in East Oakland, West Oakland, and most recently in San Francisco. I taught self-contained classes (all subjects) my first 2 years and then taught math for a year and science for a year. My youthful enthusiasm has allowed me to thrive in large classrooms. However, the real meat of teaching is in 1:1 and small group interactions.

The meaningful exchange between a teacher and a student in a small group cannot be replaced in a student's educational journey, and that's what excites me about tutoring.

Between high school and university, I have taken many higher level math classes and been successful in all of them.

I have taught 4th grade math, 5th grade math, and 6th grade math, and as such, I am also very familiar with the common core mathematical journey that students must take from Kindergarten to 12th grade.

I have a degree in Geology. I like to think Geology does the best job of combining many sciences into one (physical science, earth science, and even life sciences).

I have also taught, and will continue teaching, middle school science. I have taught whole, self-contained classrooms of 4th, 5th, and 6th graders (reading, writing, math, science, social studies). Small groups are a crucial part of the classroom, so I am very familiar with after school and lunch tutoring.

I'm a very enthusiastic young man, and I really enjoy working with students. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised by the lessons I can produce and execute. Please reach out to me with any questions.

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.
