About Kurt


Bio

Hi, I'm Kurt! I love math and studied it in both Undergraduate and Graduate school (both at the University of Chicago).

I specialize in tutoring SAT Math, and I can help coach you to your target score. My SAT Math teaching method includes 12 sessions to cover all of the required material, full practice tests every two weeks, and daily practice on Khan Academy's free library of practice problems.

Hi, I'm Kurt! I love math and studied it in both Undergraduate and Graduate school (both at the University of Chicago).

I specialize in tutoring SAT Math, and I can help coach you to your target score. My SAT Math teaching method includes 12 sessions to cover all of the required material, full practice tests every two weeks, and daily practice on Khan Academy's free library of practice problems.

Before the coronavirus shut downs, I was also a volunteer math tutor at the Brooklyn Public Library helping adults earn their High School Equivalency (HSE). We covered topics such as Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, and Statistics. I try to provide a welcoming and encouraging environment for all my students. I believe everyone can enjoy Math with the right guidance.

I also tutor high school math classes (Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra 2, pre-Calculus, and Calculus). If your student is behind due to coronavirus, I can help this Summer to catch up, keep up, and get ahead in preparation for next Fall.

I have over 15 years of real world experience applying Math to business problems as a Management Consultant and a Startup Founder. My additional qualifications include: getting a 5 on AP Calculus BC, being an Eagle Scout, being issued a US Patent for inventing a novel Recommendation System (ie involves a bunch of Linear Algebra) for fashion items, and being a dad.

Contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule time to meet.
