About Max

Hi!

My name is Max. I am a current student and social worker. I have been in the city for several years navigating the improv/stand-up/comedy world and am currently in my post-master's studies in clinical social work/therapy. And although these seem unrelated, they inform each other greatly. I specialize in irreverent, existential philosophy for end of life care. More specifically, I am looking to incorporate my love of science, comedy, writing and speaking into substantive help and practice of creative therapy.

In the mean time--for most of the summer--I'm yours! I have experience with nearly all humanities subjects and graduated with a B.A. in creative writing and a Master's in Clinical Social Work. I also took many science AP's in high school and was pre-med for 3 semesters in college. I am confident in my university level chemistry and biology knowledge. I have two years experience tutoring for SAT/GRE/ACT/GMAT as well.

I am available to tutor or coach improv and acting as well as more traditional test work in all subjects.

Thanks for taking a look!

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.

Guitar

I have been playing for more than a decade and currently own a ukulele and guitar. I taught lessons in high school as well. I am versed in basic music theory for both instruments and can teach advanced techniques so a student can take off.

Macintosh

I have been a mac user for the last 7 years. I am well versed in Mac OS 10.4 and up. I also own an iPhone and have been tutoring Mom and friends and family since high school.

Microsoft Windows

I'm a big nerd. I have been working on PC and Mac troubleshooting throughout my adolescence. I have put together a PC. I game. I am familiar with software and hardware fixes and am the goto IT guy for my extended family.

Public Speaking

I won my Senior Speakout Competition in high school. I am an improviser and stand-up comic in NYC. I have years of experience writing, performing and with basic oration.

Theatre

I am trained in improv and Meisner acting technique. I have been an Advanced Study member at the Upright Citizen's Brigade theatre for over a year and have performed at many venues. I have also completed acting courses at Actor's Connection and performed in plays and shorts around the city.

Amazing — Max was the third tutor and I cannot praise him enough. He is an excellent teacher with a lot of patience and pleasant demeanor and he figured out the problems I had with my PC. He solved everything that needed to be solved and also made my computer more appealing to me. This tutoring session was a pleasure. I surely will call Max again when I need help. ...
