EducationPh.D., Theoretical Physics, Boston University, 2009
ExperienceI offer physics tutoring at all high school and undergraduate college
3 years of teaching at Boston University.
Classes taught: PY105/106 (Intro to physics, non-calculus), PY211/212 (intro to physics, calculus), PY313 (Modern Physics) and PY 355 (Methods of Theoretical Physics).
9 years of tutoring physics and math, from high school physics intro classes to upper-level Electromagnetism and Quantum Mechanics. I have helped several hundreds of students from Harvard, MIT, BU, Northeastern, BC, UMass Boston, UCSD...
I can do both one-on-one and group tutoring. However, in my opinion, one-on-one tutoring almost always works better than group tutoring.In a one-on-one tutoring, a student can get exactly what he or she needs at any given moment, without waiting for or being distracted by others.
My normal rate for introductory physics classes is $60/hour
Rate is slightly higher if I have to travel to your place (within I-495)
HobbiesChess, Fishing, Guitar, Salsa, Martial Arts.

I took Advanced Physics course this year in HS. My goal was to have a solid foundation before I attempted the SAT Physics exam. Maxim explained the concepts from all topics really well - Kinematics, Electricity, Thermodynamics and Magnetism. He encouraged me to solve a number Physics SAT problems. He was always available to help me even during spring vacation. With his help, I was able to build great confidence in this subject and also scored 790 on SAT 2 Physics test. I really appreciate the help Maxim provided to me. The depth of his knowledge is amazing in all those topics. I would recommend him to any student interested in learning fundamentals of Physics and for SAT.
I worked with Maksim for physics and he was one of the best tutors I have ever worked with! He explains the concepts very clear and is very helpful. He is also very understanding. Once I had to reschedule our lesson at the last minute and changed the location. He was very understanding because it was my finals week. I recommend him to anyone who needs help with physics!
Maxim is patient and knowledgeable as others have pointed out. He did a great job working with my son on an AP physics course. I especially appreciated his rigor in giving and grading problem sets. There is no doubt that his knowledge of the subjects covered was complete and competently rendered.
Maxim is one of the greatest teachers Ive ever worked with . He is very patient with his students and really cares about them . He's also very knowledgeable in his field of science ( physics . mathematics ) and he explains concepts very clearly . Maxim also challenges his students and pushes them to achieve better grades and do better in class . I strongly recommend him for everyone (:
Maxim is very patient and articulate. He is prepared to class every time. He definitely has solid physics knowledge and a very strong math background. He helped me with intermediate college physics and it was very efficient. He would be the first person to turn to if I ever need a physics tutor again.
Maxim worked with me for three months. Not only did I get A in college physics, my understanding of the subject has improved greatly! Great tutor, patient and clear. He knows all the formulas in his head which amazed me a lot since there are hundreds of them. He also knows math as good as he knows physics! I would take him again any day!
