About Kurt

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.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a Masters Degree in Applied & Computational Mathematics.

COBOL

As an undergrad student, I took three COBOL classes, getting an "A" in each of them. I have also worked 20 years in IT, most of them programming COBOL in the business world. I have used COBOL on IBM AS/400's and IBM 3090 mainframes.

Computer Programming

As an undergrad student, I have taken RPG, COBOL, C, Fortran, Pascal, and Assembler Languages, getting an "A" in all of them. I have a B.S. in Computer Science. I also know dBase, Basic, Visual Basic, DOS, Unix ksh, MATLAB and many others. I have worked 20 years in IT, most of them programming COBOL, RPG, JCL, dBase and others in the business world.

Computer Science

As an undergrad student, I have taken RPG, COBOL, C, Fortran, Pascal, and Assembler Languages, getting an "A" in all of them. I have a B.S. in Computer Science. I also know dBase, Basic, Visual Basic, DOS, Unix ksh, MATLAB and many others. I understand database design, data structures and Operating Systems design at the lowest levels. I have worked 20 years in IT, most of them programming COBOL, RPG, JCL, dBase and others in the business world working with most Computer Science principles.

Differential Equations

I have a Masters Degree in Applied & Computational Mathematics. I took Differential Equations as a Freshman, way ahead of most other students working on a math degree, getting an "A" and Advanced Differential Equations getting a "BA". I have tutored other students in DiffEq while a grad student.

Discrete Math

I have a Masters Degree in Applied & Computational Mathematics. Discrete Math was a requirement for my undergrad degree in Computer Science, of which I have 30 years experience in the field. I received an "A" in this class at the time, along with every undergrad math class. I am also a member of Pi Mu Epsilon, the Honor Society for Mathematicians worldwide.

DOS

I have been working with DOS since DOS 2.0. I have written innumerable DOS scripts in both academia and business. I have worked in the IT field for over 20 years, using DOS even into the Windows era.

Finite Math

I have taken classes in all areas of Finite Math including Matrix Algebra, Linear Programming and Statistics. I have a Masters Degree in Applied and Computational Mathematics.

MATLAB

I have a Masters Degree in Applied & Computational Mathematics. We use MATLAB extensively in this field. While a grad student, I helped other students with their MATLAB assignments and was the MATLAB programmer on group assignments. I have 35 years of programming experience and educational background with MATLAB.

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.
