About Maximilian


Bio

Hi there! My name is Maximilian. I teach high school English, and I have been a tutor for over seven years, focusing on helping students learn to write well. I got my start tutoring while attending college in Miami, where I was asked to help fellow students--both ESL and native speakers--improve their writing. Since then, I've tutored and taught Literature, Public Speaking and English.

Hi there! My name is Maximilian. I teach high school English, and I have been a tutor for over seven years, focusing on helping students learn to write well. I got my start tutoring while attending college in Miami, where I was asked to help fellow students--both ESL and native speakers--improve their writing. Since then, I've tutored and taught Literature, Public Speaking and English.

While I can (and do!) teach all aspects of English, my absolute favorite aspect of it to tutor is anything involving writing. Before I became a teacher, I worked as a proofreader and copy editor at a local ad agency ... basically I improved professional writers' writing for a living. Now, as a teacher, I love it when students come to me wanting to enter this or that essay contest. I can't take the credit when they win, but it is nice to watch a student's work grow and develop, with little more than a nudge from me here and there. Students who struggle with writing are also a joy to work with; one of the best parts about being a teacher is watching the light bulb go off when students realize that good writing is nothing more than their thoughts on paper, simply and clearly.

I admit I am a bit of a grammar freak. Nobody else I know would enjoy reading about the history of the comma or other such things. But I do. I love the English language and all its nuances, and I love showing others how amazing it can be and helping them use it to express themselves. My goal with tutoring is to help students learn to do just that.

As for my own education (for those who do their due diligence), I graduated from a local private school with a 4.53 GPA. I was a National Merit Scholar Finalist and scored a 2250 on the SAT. In college, I took nearly 150 credit hours in a variety of disciplines, but focused mainly on philosophy and English. I graduated summa cum laude in December of 2013 from Thomas Edison State University with a degree in English and a cumulative 3.94 GPA. Nowadays, I'm currently working on earning my Master's degree in Language and Literature with a concentration in Imaginative Literature from Signum University. So while I'm a teacher, I'm a student, too, and can still identify with many of the struggles of student life.

I'm easy to reach--feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson!

Vocabulary

As an English teacher, I'm rather familiar with helping students learn vocabulary. I like to use a number of techniques, ranging from writing using the new words to spaced repetition methodology. English has a large, nuanced vocabulary, and helping students learn new ways of expressing themselves is one of the joys of teaching.
