About Kurt


Bio

Hi, I'm Kurt. I'm an experienced Math tutor who specializes in college level Math. I tutor both first-year Math (like Calculus and Finite Math) as well as upper-level courses (like Probability, Stochastic Processes, and Combinatorics). My favorite topics include Bayes Theorem, Inclusion-Exclusion, Pigeon-Hole Principle, Exponential Distributions, Poisson Processes, Markov Chains, and Queueing Theory.

I love math and studied it in both Undergraduate and Graduate school at the University of Chicago. I try to provide a welcoming and encouraging environment for all my students. I believe everyone can enjoy and excel at Math with the right guidance.

I graduated from the University of Chicago with a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Mathematics. I'm available to tutor Calculus from Pre-Calculus through Multivariable Calculus. Also, even though it was a long time ago, I got a 5 on the AP Calc BC exam.
Geometry,

I graduated from the University of Chicago with a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Mathematics. Even though I'm new to the Wyzant platform, I have 2 years of tutoring experience. I'm also a tutor at the Brooklyn Public Library helping adults study for the High School Equivalency exam (GED), so I'm very familiar tutoring the Pre-Algebra through Geometry curriculum.

I enjoy Math because every question is a puzzle, but I also understand how frustrating puzzles can be if you don’t have the tools to solve them. My job is to meet students at their current level and then teach at a pace that maintains a feeling of awe and accomplishment as they solve progressively more interesting puzzles. I graduated from the University of Chicago with a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Mathematics. Also, even though it was a long time ago, I got a 5 on the AP Calc BC exam.

I am an experienced SAT Math tutor. I emphasize frequent practice tests so I can provide progress updates to students and parents, as we'll as tailor sessions to individual student's needs. I've found this is the fastest way to increase SAT test scores.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Kurt is a very patient tutor and he really wants me to succeed and to understand all of the material. He is willing to put in extra effort to help me succeed and to understand.

B, 25 lessons with Kurt

Kurt brought me to finally achieving my Hse diploma

There are no words to describe how grateful I am to have had Kurt teach me the math for the TASC test and finally help me reach my goal after struggling with math for many years I never thought I would be on an equivalent level of passing the TASC exam but through Kurt’s persistence and patience and constantly finding new ways to help me understand the material my dream became a reality. I would highly recommend Kurt for all your tutoring needs. After working with Kurt for only a few short months he’s helped me to my life long goal of finally passing the TASC test, and feeling like I now know and understand the material. I’ve tried many tutors and ways of learning but Kurt’s patience and way of teaching is unmatched.
