About Kurt

I am able to listen and understand the needs of each individual student, both from the parent's perspective and from the student's. I am able to quickly develop rapport and allay fears so that time is maximized and the student is able to progress as quickly as possible. I have taught all grades, K-6, with an emphasis on 4,5,6. I have conducted intervention programs for struggling students as well as enrichment programs for gifted and talented students.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a Nevada State Teaching License in K-6 education. I have also nearly finished a MAT, Master's in Teaching degree, to be completed in September of 2010.

Study Skills

I am well versed in the Cornell Note Taking process and find it very helpful for struggling students. A brief summary of the process: After the notes have been taken, the student writes a brief summary in the bottom five to seven lines of the page. This helps to increase understanding of the topic. When studying for either a test or quiz, the student has a concise but detailed and relevant record of previous classes.
When reviewing the material, the student can cover up the note-taking (right) column to answer the questions/keywords in the key word or cue (left) column. The student is encouraged to reflect on the material and review the notes regularly.
