About Kurt

I taught Jr. High school math, including algebra for 16 years. Currently I am teaching for the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at ASU. I am teaching future teachers both how to do the math and how to teach the math. I am extremely knowledgeable about math content and best practices.

I have learned and developed techniques for traditionally difficult concepts (long division, fractions, decimals, integers, percents, algebra) that will simplify these topics giving each student the best chance to be successful.

Contact me and start UNDERSTANDING math, perhaps for the first time.

I have very simple strategies for solving the most difficult topic in math. My strategies are not tricks or gimmicks but rather based on deep reasoning and understanding of the concept. I utilize manipulatives and other strategies to reinforce each concept.

Besides a deep understanding of the content, I have effective test taking strategies that will give you the best opportunity to pads the test on the first attempt.

Besides being an excellent teacher/tutor, I am extremely laid back. I don't stress we other people do. If you want a highly effective tutor, who will give you the confidence to reach all your educational goals then please contact me and set up an appointment.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Praxis
