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). Most of my tutoring is with high school math (SAT Math, Algebra, and Calculus) and early college math (Finite, Calculus, and Statistics).

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). I try to provide a welcoming and...

Hi, I'm Kurt! I love math and studied it in both Undergraduate and Graduate school (both at the University of Chicago). Most of my tutoring is with high school math (SAT Math, Algebra, and Calculus) and early college math (Finite, Calculus, and Statistics).

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). 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), and being a dad.

**Please note that I can't tutor on Weekends or after 5pm because I have to watch my 2 daughters.
**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.

SAT Math

SAT Math

I specialize in tutoring SAT Math. As an experienced tutor I have developed my own SAT Math curriculum based on feedback from students and what has most impacted their practice test scores. Students take an official practice test via Khan Academy every 1-2 weeks, so I can provide frequent progress updates to students and parents. I review all practice test results at the question level to tailor sessions to individual student's needs and to increase test scores as quickly as possible.

Finite Math

I am an experienced math tutor who works extensively with college students (including classes like Algebra, Finite Math, Calculus, and Statistics).

Before the pandemic related shutdowns, I was a tutor at the Brooklyn Public Library helping adults with the Math section of the High School Equivalency (TASC) exam. I love Math, and I studied it in college and graduate school. I understand the fear and anger you might feel toward Math, and I know that with the right help anyone can excel at Math. My rates are negotiable for TASC and GED students.
