About Max

Originally from San Francisco, I've went to college at Tulane University in New Orleans, worked for the Brazilian government in Washington, and worked and earned a master's degree in Geneva, Switzerland. I've also lived in Brasília and São Paulo, Brazil. Along the way, I've helped countless students improve their English and sound more like natives.

When choosing an English as a Second Language teacher, there is always a trade-off between the incomparable idiomatic repertoire of native speakers and a non-native speaker teacher's ability to identify errors and explain rules in an understandable manner. With me, you have the best of both worlds! I'm college educated native speaker of English, but am also fluent in Portuguese, Spanish, and French, which allows me to quickly identify and correct interference from those languages. I do not speak Chinese, but have quite a bit of experience helping Cantonese and Mandarin speakers correct interference.

I have extensive experience preparing students for job interviews and presentations. I also have helped students prepare for IELTS, TOEFL, and TOEIC.

My classes are always adapted to my student's interests. If it's not fun for you, you won't learn!

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.

IELTS

I have prepared several students for the IELTS test. I've simulated the oral interview in order to improved performance and to bring out the student's strengths in the interview. I've also prepared them for the multiple choice section using older versions of the test and helped them with their argumentation and essay writing. As I am a native speaker of English, I've never taken the test myself, however I have extensive experience taking other standardized tests (SAT, ACT, GRE) as well as standardized language tests for other languages (French, Portuguese, Spanish, German).
