About Kurt

Hello Spanish scholars! My name is Kurt and I have a great passion for foreign languages, specifically Spanish. The opportunities and possibilities that open up once you have learned a foreign language are endless! Spanish is truly one of the most important subjects a student can learn in grade school.

I have had great opportunities to travel abroad to Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Mexico several times to use my Spanish. Most recently, I lived in Mexico City for five months with my new wife who was born and raised in Mexico! I initially learned Spanish in high school and continued my education with a minor in Spanish during my undergraduate years of college.

I have tutored friends in casual situations in subjects like Algebra and Statistics, and I also tutor friends in Guatemala through Skype who desire to learn English! Presenting students with guidelines and procedures to make learning Spanish easier is an important part of my philosophy. Practicing the patterns presented in Spanish makes learning the language seem much more fundamental than originally anticipated.

I always do whatever it takes to help the student learn; patience is my specialty! Feel free to contact me for further information!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

One of my personality strengths is following order. Spelling and grammar are topics that occupy my thoughts constantly and I consider my understanding of the English language to be excellent. Many times I unintentionally annoy people by constantly correcting their grammar.

I learned Spanish in a classroom setting and speak it fluently, so I understand what it takes to learn another language through formal lessons.

I have helped several foreign friends to learn English and tutored them in a specific way that met their needs. In addition, I have taught informal ESL classes to groups of refugees from various countries of Asia.

Spanish

Member of Spanish Honor Society in high school.
Minor in Spanish as an undergraduate in college.

I have traveled all over Mexico and have spent more than five months of time living there. I lived in Guatemala for three weeks and translated from English to Spanish in formal settings in front of crowds. I studied abroad in Costa Rica and have spent over a month of my time traveling the country.

I was approved for a Spanish-speaking incentive at a previous place of work.

Very patient and helpful

My son really enjoyed his Spanish tutoring session with Kurt. Kurt was punctual, patient, and knowledgeable. He helped my son with his high school Spanish homework. We will definitely be using his services again.
