Max was born down the street from the National Institutes of Health, outside of Washington, D.C., and has been a lab rat ever since. He graduated from Yale Phi Beta Kappa with both a B.S. and M.S. in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry while announcing hockey games as a TV broadcaster. As an undergrad, he achieved a 4.0 GPA in all graduate coursework and his lab work earned the departmental prize for excellence in research and scholarship. After graduating, Max completed a research fellowship at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. He is an author on multiple scientific papers and is currently pursuing a M.D. and a Ph.D. through the combined Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology (HST) program.
Max has experience tutoring on the high school and college level, on topics ranging from algebra to macromolecular biophysics! His core strengths include biology, chemistry, mathematics, and preparation for the MCAT, but he has experience in a wide range of academic areas (he achieved top scores on 15 AP and IB examinations).
Away from school, you can find Max running around Boston/Cambridge, in the gym, exploring New England, or hanging around Fenway Park (go Sox!)
