About Kurt


Bio

I have always been good at math and computers. In junior high school, I started competing in math competitions and doing very well, usually placing in the top 25-100 in the state of Michigan throughout high school. I tutored math in college, and am able to find many ways to help a student solve a problem or learn a concept. My favorite areas of math include algebra, trigonometry, calculus, differential equations.

I have a B.S. in Computer Science and an M.S. in Applied and Computational Mathematics. I am a member of Upsilon Pi Epsilon, the Honor Society in the Computing and Information Disciplines. I am also a member of Pi Mu Epsilon, the National Honorary Mathematics Society.

I have been programming for 35 years, starting with handheld calculators. I am fluent in many computer languages, having worked in the IT field for 20+ years.

I have a personal library of over 200 math and computer science books, and am adding to it all the time.

Patient and Knowledgeable.. SMART !!

This man was able to make sense out of Calculus. He explains things in easy to understand terms. He was even happy to wait when I showed up 30 min late.He works with students until they can explain the concepts as well as he can.

Denice, 2 lessons with Kurt

Very knowledgeable and has lots of patience

he taught advanced maths ( Precalc) . He was able to explain the concepts in detail with step by step approach .

AHSAN, 1 lesson with Kurt

Very attentive and helpful

Kurt did great job. He arrived on time and spent quality time with my son for math topics. He was patient and he came prepared with pen , paper, calculator.

Heather , 1 lesson with Kurt

Great tutor. I would recommend him.

Kurt is a very good tutor. He is extremely flexible in his schedule. There was never a question that I came to him with that he was unable to answer. Kurt was always able to give advice in terms that I was able to understand. If something that my professor covered in class was tough for me to grasp, he was always able to clear things up. I would absolutely recommend Kurt as a tutor to anyone who is struggling in math, especially Calculus.
