Hello! My name is Max, and I am a very experienced math tutor looking to help anybody who seems to be running into a mental wall against math. Mathematics can seem to be a very complex field of study and very overwhelming at times, but I'm here to help. It is important to try many different teaching styles, and I will find the right style that fits you. We can tackle math one problem at a time to build a solid foundation of knowledge. It's important to build a solid base of knowledge because all math builds on previous information, and if one concept is not grasped, it will continually appear and prevent further understanding of additional topics.
I have been tutoring students for over ten years, initially starting with helping friends with homework and progressing to paid tutoring of fellow students. I can help in any math field that is needed - from elementary math, to basic algebra, to calculus, and I have tutored students with varying ages - from 6 to 55 years old. In college, I was an undergraduate teaching assistant at the University of Pittsburgh for two semesters in courses titled Applied College Algebra and Algebra & Trigonometry. This position required me to hold recitations once a week for an hour as well as hold private office hours for three hours a week. In addition, I offered private tutoring to any student that entered the math assistance center where I tutored, and I met with three different students multiple times outside of my classroom responsibilities.
During the 2012-2013 school year, I worked in an at-risk high school as a math teacher in Colorado. It was the experience of a lifetime, and I have learned numerous new techniques to help students conquer their fear of math - including patience! Relating to students has always been my strong point and I offer a youthful energy that can make math fun again!
During the summer of 2014, I taught trigonometry and algebra 1 at De La Salle High School in New Orleans. It was a fantastic experience to help students with unique learning styles and I highly enjoyed getting back in the classroom.
I currently live and work in Dallas as a High School Math Curriculum Writer for Edmentum, writing online math curriculum that is used in all 50 states, mainly through the common core.
Contact me if you are ready to begin a new and enjoyable understanding of math!
Great Tutor......personable, professional, energetic & creative
Finding a Pre-calc and Physics tutor for my son was a daunting experience. We had tried several tutors and either my son couldn't relate to them or they did not teach the technique in a way his teacher would accept. I am so thankful to WyzAnt and Max for coming to the rescue. Max came to our house to work with my son for his first session. As soon as the session was concluded, my son said, "I really relate to Max, mom. He explains things in a way I completely understand. He is so patient and makes me feel at ease with my questions." Max has worked with my son numerous times over the last 6 months and now helps my other son, as well. We strongly recommend Max and WyzAnt!Cole, 31 lessons with Max
Max did an amazing job breaking down the beginning basics of Calculus. His teaching methods are very effective which enabled a Calculus student to go from confused and frustrated to confident and have a positive outlook of Calculus. Thanks Max!Marc, 1 lesson with Max
Knowledgeable and adaptable
He is incredibly well versed in everything GRE. He was able to give me a concise run down in the things I needed a refresher in and helped me focus on the things that have weight.Shelby, 1 lesson with Max
Flexible and knowledgeable
Max is fast enough to keep up when I race through material I’m already familiar with, but patient enough to walk me through parts I get stuck on. Very skilled in mathematics, knows a lot of tricks that are easier to remember than the “long form” solutions on my math lab. Also very insightful and good at explaining the relationships and concepts behind all the math. Knows how to “make it simple” - the textbooks make it hard! Would absolutely recommend.Elaine, 2 lessons with Max
Max really helped calm my math related fears and broke problems down for me so that I could really see what the question was asking. His confidence in my abilities made me feel at ease and much more positive about conquering the quantitative section on the GRE!Courtney, 1 lesson with Max
Great first lesson. My daughter was against the idea of a tutor and Max did a great job breaking the ice and earning her trust. Looking forward to her next lesson.Bret, 21 lessons with Max
We have been using a different tutor and for whatever reason my daughter's grades in AP Calculus continued to slip. After even just one tutor session with Max she got 100! She continues to improve and really likes Max.Amy, 16 lessons with Max
Extremely helpful and easy going tutor.
I would have never gotten an A in my Calculus 2 class without Max. Not only is he extremely helpful and patient, but he empowered me with the confidence I needed to get through the course. After each lesson with him I felt significantly less stressed about the subject, and my grade in the class clearly reflects his effectiveness as a tutor. Math is one of my weakest subjects, and Calculus 2 is probably the last math class I will ever take, but part of me wishes I was taking more math so I could continue working with Max. I would highly recommend him to anyone struggling with any level of math.Jacob, 8 lessons with Max
Max knows how to assess the needs and zero in on how to present the material in an easy to learn way.Kenny, 23 lessons with Max
