About Kurt


Bio

First, a bit about me...

I live in the northwestern part of Columbus, Ohio, not far from Dublin, Worthington, and Powell.

I am 59 years old. I hold a graduate degree from a Big Ten university (no, not Ohio State, though both of my kids graduated from OSU) and work for the Ohio Department of Education. My field is testing and assessment, and my understanding of tests and test items has proved helpful in preparing students for standardized tests.

First, a bit about me...

I live in the northwestern part of Columbus, Ohio, not far from Dublin, Worthington, and Powell.

I am 59 years old. I hold a graduate degree from a Big Ten university (no, not Ohio State, though both of my kids graduated from OSU) and work for the Ohio Department of Education. My field is testing and assessment, and my understanding of tests and test items has proved helpful in preparing students for standardized tests.

I specialize in high school and college-level mathematics, specifically pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, and statistics. I also prepare students for the SAT, ACT, GRE, and other standardized tests. I have worked with students from middle school through college, individually and in groups.

I expect students to provide the following...

1. Textbooks, problem sets, review books, or any other required material.
2. A calculator, if necessary. (If the exercise requires a graphing calculator, I expect you to have one.)
3. And... most important of all... a good attitude.

I look forward to working with you.

Social Studies

I hold two graduate degrees in psychology and earned an undergraduate minor in history. I have a strong personal interest in politics and government. I have also passed WyzAnt qualification tests in six social studies specialties. I believe these qualifications provide sufficient evidence of my qualifications in general social studies.

Helpful and patient tutor

Kurt and I did a science practice test and he told me how you should skim through the article and then go to the questions. Read through the options and looked back at the article to see which one answer makes the most sense.

Precalc

Always a pleasure. He has been great every time. Very consistent, patient and he helped my brother improve his grade significantly.

Banan, 29 lessons with Kurt

Helpful lesson on confidence intervals

Kurt is both very helpful and really patient. He makes difficult material much easier to understand by breaking concepts into parts and talking through the steps needed to solve problems. He has made it so much easier for me to keep up with the fast pace of this class-a Probability and Statistics course.

Great tutor.

I am taking basic statistics for psychology. Kurt surprises me by knowing more about the subject that I would expect. He is helping me greatly. Very respectful and knowledgeable.

Great Tutor

Kurt tutored my daughter who is a senior and was having problems passing her science OGT test. Myself and my daughter were very pleased with Kurt and would recommend his tutoring services to anyone. Thank you Kurt for all your help!!!
