Max B.


Max hails from New York City (LaG, 2011), and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Johns Hopkins University with degrees in Film & Media Studies, Music, and Global Environmental Change & Sustainability. In pursuit of some kind of constellation of these fields and ideas, he completed a M.St. at The University of Oxford in Film Aesthetics, and subsequently began working as a film editor for Amiel Courtin-Wilson and Terrence Malick. He is now a Ph.D. Candidate in Film and Visual Studies at Harvard, where he works within and around the domains of ecological aesthetics and art in the anthropocene.

Max has been tutoring and mentoring since 2016 and has worked with students of all ages and learning styles on applications, portfolios, and writing samples within a variety of different fields. Max is particularly fond of his time working with Oxford's Disability Advisory Service. With Cambridge Coaching, Max specializes in supporting students with their applications to graduate school.

In his spare time, Max bikes around trying to find ideas.

    "Max was very helpful in all aspects of the process! He helped me brainstorm and edit my personal statement. He also provided a lot of helpful readings and sources that would give me ideas. He was very attentive and accommodating to my schedule. He always delivered when he said he would and was always made sure to tell me when and how I could reach him. Max was always positive and did his best to answer any questions and feedback. I am very pleased with my experience. Everyone was really kind and prompt in responding. I will look towards Cambridge Coaching again if I need it!"
