Max Friedmann earned his M.A. in education through the Stanford Teacher Education Program. He taught high school math for five years, and now he tutors the same subjects he taught in the classroom: 8th grade math, Algebra I, Algebra II, and Pre-Calculus. Max’s #1 belief is that math should make sense. To this end, Max loves to have students unpack a problem in multiple ways. How do the graph, table, and equation all connect? When students see how different ideas and representations fit together, the learning sinks in more deeply. Max uses a collaborative whiteboard and video conferencing to tutor online, or you can see him in Berkeley. For more information, please email maxtutorsmath@gmail.com, or text/call (510) 545-6903.
