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 8 sessions (over 4 weeks) to cover all of the required material, 2 full practice tests, 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 8 sessions (over 4 weeks) to cover all of the required material, 2 full practice tests, 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) via the TASC test (NY's GED test). 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 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 (i.e. involves a bunch of Linear Algebra) for fashion items, and being a dad.

**Please note that I can't tutor on Weekends or after 5pm because I have to watch my 2yo.
**Rates are negotiable for GED / TASC students who can meet before 1pm.

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

Business

I’m a versatile consultant and entrepreneur with over 15 years of work experience across a range of environments (startup founder, management consultant, trader, and management inside a corporation). Previously as a startup founder and CEO, I managed a team of over 30 employees and contractors, and oversaw all key components of company activity (e.g., strategy, product design, tech, sales/business development, HR, fundraising, accounting, legal, etc.). When I'm not tutoring Math, I consult on projects at the intersection of financial services, strategy and data science. I specialize in initiatives that leverage my extensive experience building new processes and products that are technical in nature.
