About Max

After graduating from The University in the Arts, I worked as a swim instructor, and soon after was promoted to director of the petting zoo and animal sciences instructor, at a community center in Philadelphia to supplement my income doing freelance art. I worked with children of all ages for that time. I adapted the information for the needs and abilities of each of the approximately 80 students I taught. During the fall semester, I also tutored these students in English.

More recently, I was an animation instructor for 10-14 year old students in the Bronx and Brooklyn. There I taught classes of 3-16 students, and occasionally taught one-on-one lessons, on the topics of animation and illustration. I worked with students on the principles of animation, illustration, and character design before moving on to teach the students Adobe Flash, iStopMotion, iMovie, and Adobe Illustrator. I have always loved knowledge, and spreading my knowledge to others.

Since I was a child I have loved and excelled in English Language Arts. I was in the gifted program, SEED, in elementary school, then proceeded to study honors English and Literature in middle and high school, and finally went on to take Advanced Placement courses in English, Rhetoric, and Literature. I have won essay and writing contests throughout my secondary education, and though I studied art in college, took as many writing courses as I could, had essays chosen to become examples for future students, and was even published in the Philadelphia literature magazine Underground Pool. I tutored and edited essays for fellow students during my time at UARTS.

I earned my BFA in animation from UARTS in Philadelphia. There I mastered the principles of animation, honed my illustration and drawing craft, and became well-versed in the Adobe Creative Suite. I Also have experience and talent in film-making and editing, storyboarding, comic illustration, screenwriting, acting and voice-acting.

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.

Drawing

I have been drawing my whole life. I studied a year of illustration coursework at Montclair State University before transferring to The University Of The Arts where I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts in animation. I have taken drawing, illustration, animation, storyboarding, figure drawing, and life drawing courses. Additionally, post graduation, I have taught animation and illustration to students in the Bronx and Brooklyn through the Xposure Foundation.

Film

In working towards my BFA in animation, I took several courses on film, as well. I have taken courses on shooting both classic film on a bolex camera, and shooting video on a more modern camera. I have taken classes on filming and directorial techniques, as well as narrative techniques, screenwriting, and film history. I have also taken courses on editing and film editing softwares.
