About Kurt

I am a certified teacher of integrated language arts grades 7-12, but I have taught grades as low as 5th and as high as college age. I am adept at teaching close reading skills as well as study and time management and organizational techniques. I am comfortable tutoring history, social studies, American History and Government, American and English Literature. I also enjoy teaching study skills and test prep. I have taught at private, public and parochial schools and am familiar with most of the schools and the curricula in my immediate area. I have FBI and State of Ohio background checks and have had VIRTUS training. Prior to my teaching career, I was a journalist for nearly 25 years.

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.

American History

From the 'shot heard round the world' to the latest political election, I've always had a keen interest in American History. I try to bring my students not just the facts but the little known and behind the scenes stories that make history interesting and fun

Anatomy

I enjoy teaching anatomy, but I should let students know, I am not the best tutor for you if you are stuck on the cellular level. I am quite versed once you get past the cellular level and begin talking about tissues and organ systems.

Baseball

I have coached baseball for three years at levels ranging from t-ball to traveling tournament teams.

English

I am certified to teach English (grades 7-12 and above), my Masters degree is in English Education and my Bachelor's is in English/Journalism.

Grammar

When it comes to usage and grammar, I often use a sports theme to make things easier to understand for many students. I do my best to break grammar down to smaller, more manageable pieces and then show how the pieces all fit together.

Literature

Perhaps my strongest subject, I teach literature with a real passion. My specialty is American Lit, especially from the modernist school. I enjoy teaching the techniques and history that goes along with the examination of the "Lost Generation."

Praxis

I passed Praxis I with a certificate marking excellence. I scored in the top 15% of those taking the test. I also have passed the Praxis II for teaching integrated language arts grades 7-12.

Proofreading

I was an editor and writer for a number of national trade magazines. I have been a responsible proofreader for national advertising pieces as well

Study Skills

I have taught study skills as a summer school teacher, and as a private tutor. I also have had graduate school level courses in reading for content.
