About Maxwell

My experience as a chess instructor came last year with a company called Educhess. The owner had complete trust in me to teach the classes how he would in his absence. My approach to teaching is to make sure the students are sitting down and paying attention. I keep it fun, and ask them questions. Then I hand out little trinkets, like chess piece keychains, and the kids love those.

My skill and knowledge of the game itself is extensive. I learned at a young age from my father. I read a chess book called "My System" by Aaron Nimzovich. I am quickly able to recognize student weaknesses and correct their thinking processes. I engage the students with a fun, safe environment and I'm often greeted with hugs and admiration.

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.

Algebra 1

I have recently reviewed and mastered all of Algerba I's concepts including completing the square. I have been training myself in math every day and am confident I can teach anyone how to solve any Algebra I question or below.

Baseball

I was a Baseball All Star my whole life. I was on the Westlake All-Star team. I was on the travel team. I played every position.

Basketball

Basketball is probably my best sport. I won the championship in 8th grade on the Middle School Team. I was an All Star in NJB, and the number one draft pick. I could score 30+ points.

Chess

I am a 1710 ranked chess player on standard live games on a leading chess website. I win 55% of the time and continue to improve. Every time I lose I run a computer analysis on my mistake and learn from it. I am a natural teacher and have had great success improving the play of my students.

Football

I was the co-starter at Quarterback my freshman year of high school. I was the starter during the passing league, and can throw a perfect spiral 50+ yards on the money.

Prealgebra

Okay, I was an honors math student in 8th and 9th grade. I would typically get above 100% on tests at Colina Middle School and Westlake High School. I got a 700 on the SAT Math Section. I just studied Pre-Algebra for a month on khanacademy.org and I simply have mastered prealgebra to the level of 100% mastery on khanacademy and real life because I was able to get 100% on this test quickly.
