My name is Max. After studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Berkeley, I've worked for several years as a Software Engineer, but am continually pulled back to my passion for teaching. I discovered my love for tutoring when I started college and began helping high school students in math, physics, and computer science, and I honed my teaching skills at Berkeley where I taught Signal Processing classes of up to 60 students. Rated the #1 student instructor as voted by students, there I found great joy in condensing complex topics down to comprehensible pieces, working individually with students through problems, and communicating the joy and wonder that motivates all of math and science.

After working for several years as a software engineer, I've recently moved towards exploring my other passion of music, and tutoring has given me the flexibility to explore that passion while providing a profession I find much more fulfilling than working in an office.

Whether you're studying for an exam, hoping to improve your grades, or preparing yourself for a career in STEM, I would be eager to connect with you and share my knowledge and love for math and science.

Studying engineering at Cal made the fundamentals of math (including Algebra, Trig, Calculus, and more) second nature to me by forcing me to apply what I had learned every day. I believe that all too often, math is taught in a way that is far too abstract and arbitrary for most students. I try to set myself apart from other math educators by emphasizing real-world applications tailored to students' interests, and I take pride in being able to identify and resolve gaps in students' math education before moving forward with new and challenging concepts.

Berkeley is known for its intense emphasis on theory in computer science, and after having worked in the industry for the past 4 years, I have a deep knowledge of both theory and application, which I believe gives me the unique ability to convey the fundamental concepts of CS to students whi

Great tutor

Great ability to teach and coach Python and help solve problems. Very patient and explains clearly problem solving and has helped me in getting a better understanding of coding

Marc, 11 lessons with Maximillian

Excellent Computer science tutor

Max was an excellent tutor form my daughter who is a Freshman at Berkeley taking computer science. He was prepared, patient, and knowledgeable. Great tutor! She will be using him again.

Heather, 3 lessons with Maximillian

Excellent tutoring in Python

Max was extremely patient and thorough in explaining the fundamentals of Python. He was well-prepared and equipped to integrate the more difficult concepts of the coursework I needed help with and his delivery was clear and concise. Would definitely recommend!
