Max

A former newspaper journalist, knows how to ask the "right" questions and get your child to open up about his/her/their life. A graduate of Brown University, Max enthuses his students and brings alive “dense” subjects such as literature, history and philosophy. He will employ whatever strategy necessary to interest and ignite passion in your teenager.


Max has drafted and edited numerous college admission essays – with students accepted to schools such as Princeton, Cornell, Brown and the University of Michigan. He has guided students through the college admissions process, from requesting recommendation letters and editing resumes to crafting heartfelt essays, strategizing over Early Decision versus Regular Decision and weighing financial aid packages.


He also preps students in SAT Reading/Writing and ACT Reading/English, along with most AP subjects. Max cares deeply about your student, and he yearns to establish a personal-professional rapport – to push, nudge and motivate your son, daughter or non-binary child.
