Bio

I have a B.S. in Physics from Syracuse University.

I have tutored high school and college students in math and physics at KU, UMKC, JCCC, area community colleges and private high schools, and throughout the Johnson and Jackson County school districts, volunteered as a math tutor for GED students in downtown KC, worked as a paraprofessional at Mission Valley Middle School in...

I have over 20 years as a private tutor in math, physics, and astronomy, from the grade-school to college level.

I have a B.S. in Physics from Syracuse University.

I have tutored high school and college students in math and physics at KU, UMKC, JCCC, area community colleges and private high schools, and throughout the Johnson and Jackson County school districts, volunteered as a math tutor for GED students in downtown KC, worked as a paraprofessional at Mission Valley Middle School in Leawood, tutored math and astronomy at Syracuse University, and taught grade-school German in upstate New York.

I place an emphasis on teaching in a way that is graspable and retainable, working with the particular student's own way of learning, asking the student lots of questions as we go to develop his ability to articulate his knowledge, and building the student's own independent thinking and confidence.

I love to teach and see that light bulb go on!

He's wonderful!

He's been a God send for my son! Very grateful! My son says he explains it in a much better way than his professor. Glad we found him! We will definitely keep using him the rest of the semester and next year for College Alegbra.

Tina, 6 lessons with Kurt

Very thorough and helpful!

Kurt helped my daughter prepare for an Algebra 2 test focusing on concepts that were tricky and reviewing rules of exponents and logs with her. He was very nice and patient and quickly caught onto an area where she needed further explanation and review. I would recommend him! Thank you!

Builds Confidence

Kurt gave my son confidence in his math sense and ability. He left with the skills needed to complete the assignment as well as an action plan to keep on track this week.

Knowledgeable and Patient

Kurt worked with my daughter in her college trigonometry class. He was great to work with and explained things in a way she could understand. He gave her confidence that she was bright and understood the concepts.

Kim, 3 lessons with Kurt

Great teacher!

Kurt C. is a great teacher. He explained things in ways that were easily understandable. He really helped me catch up quickly after my extended absence from school.

Connor, 5 lessons with Kurt

Knowledgeable and effective physics tutor

Kurt was available and willing to begin tutoring sessions in Physics immediately when I contacted him, and with only 5 weeks left in the first semester for my 11th grade daughter. With sessions of 60-90 minutes once a week, Kurt was able to make the semester's subject matter understandable, and my daughter's C in the class increased to a B in those 4-5 weeks. Her semester review exam grade was a very high B. My daughter finds Kurt positive and patient and extremely knowledgeable and professional. She still dislikes Physics, but is grateful that Kurt is her tutor.
