About Max

A lifelong learner, I enjoy sharing my love of learning with others. A cum laude graduate of Harvard and an MFA graduate of Carnegie Mellon, I know from personal experience how hard work produces great results. An avid reader and lover of language, I also know how powerful it is to learn and master communication skills. With a strong eye for detail, I love helping students find stronger and clearer ways of expressing themselves verbally.

I began tutoring younger students in essay writing while still in high school as part of the Writing Lab. At Carnegie Mellon University, I taught three semesters of Intro to Theater, where I guided students new to the form in both written and in-class presentation skills, based on both general analysis and close reading. As a private tutor, I have worked with students from elementary to graduate school on both academic and creative writing, helping them master the tools of grammar and style, and find their voice. My greatest satisfaction comes from seeing the confidence writing skills bring to a student; the improved grades are a bonus. I tailor my lesson plans to the needs of the student and the situation, assigning homework when appropriate, and/or working with them to prepare for an upcoming paper or presentation.

I specialize in reading and writing skills. As a history and literature major, I have spent a great deal of time honing expository writing skills, as well as basic reading comprehension, proofreading, literary analysis, close reading, and creative writing.

I am generally available 9am-8pm M-F and by arrangement on weekends. I can travel or meet online. Please contact me to set up a session or consultation.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you succeed!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I graduated from Harvard cum laude with a degree in History and Literature, and continue to coach writers of all levels, from middle school to professionals.

Literature

Graduated with honors in History and Literature from Harvard. Have been working with students on literature assignments for roughly 20 years.

Theater

A lifelong theater practitioner, I have a 10+ year career as a theater director, with work performed in New York, Los Angeles, and regionally. I received an MFA in Directing from Carnegie Mellon's School of Drama, where I also taught three semesters of Acting for Non-Majors. I have also done monologue and audition coaching with student and professional actors, and have extensive experience working with playwrights, directors, dramaturgs, actors, and theater historians.

World History

I graduated cum laude with a degree in History and Literature from Harvard (focusing on Britain and Russia), and work with students of all levels on coursework and essay writing. I can also help prep for AP Tests.

Writing

I began tutoring younger high school students in writing while still in high school, and have also worked with writers at the college, graduate school, and professional levels.
