About Kurt

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 students in math and physics at Pembroke Hill and throughout the Shawnee Mission School District, 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!
