About Kurt

I am a passionate and engaging teacher as well as a creative, problem solving scientist with an emerging career in the biotechnology field, and 5 years of experience in an accomplished academic lab. I completed my Masters thesis program in biology at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) with a focus on sensory neurobiology. While at UMBC I taught 7 semesters of Human Anatomy and Physiology. Throughout my undergraduate, graduate, and professional careers I have tutored many fellow students ranging from biology, chemistry, mathematics, and psychology.

My education and career have been devoted to the study of science, particularly the sense of smell. My work has provided insight into how the olfactory system prevents harmful substances from entering the body. This contribution has brought me a great deal of personal satisfaction and solidified my understanding of the importance of science in our society. During this work, I have had the privilege of being a mentor to several undergraduate biology students. Two of my former mentees are enrolled in biology PhD programs and a third is working towards her M.D./PhD. While I have enjoyed my tenure as a research scientist, I feel I have really come alive with every opportunity I have had to teach.

I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your academic goals!

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.

Anatomy

I taught human anatomy and physiology at UMBC for three years. I ran a lab in which we worked with models and animal dissections to understand the anatomy of the human body. I have an expertise in this field and can provide in depth education and review of the material.

Physiology

I taught human anatomy and physiology at UMBC for three years. I ran a lab in which we worked with models, animal dissections, and our own bodies to understand the physiology of the human body. I have an expertise in this field and can provide in depth education and review of the material.

TEAS

I have tutored 3 students in preparation for their TEAS test, and all have gone on to receive desirable scores. I have 3 years of teaching experience with human anatomy and physiology, as well as one year teaching experience with intro biology. I have a masters in Biology in which I developed a strong understanding of the basic science/chemistry/biology topics that are covered by the TEAS test.

Knowledgable and fun teacher

Kurt covered science with Neil in his first lesson. Not having great experience with a previous tutor, Neil was a bit skeptical but came out of the first session with lot of appreciation for Kurt for his fun engagement, knowledge of video games and of course, his passion for life sciences.
