About Dr. Kurt

I have been teaching history on the college level for seventeen years. My goal is to help everyone I teach and tutor to understand and appreciate history. I believe I have been successful at telling the story of history in a manner that is interesting and enjoyable. I make an effort to break down difficult subjects by relating them to familiar situations. I have my BA, MA, and PhD in history. I also participate in a local living history organization that brings history to life for the general public. Although I am well read in my fields, I continue to read and learn more every day.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have BA and MA in History and last year I graduated with my PhD. I am already certified in reading, vocabulary, grammar, and study skills. I would like to respond to a job asking for help in writing and study skills.

Piano

I have been playing piano for over thirty years. I studied with a concert pianist in college as an elective. I played in recitals during the time. My repertoire includes works by Beethoven, Chopin, Brahms, Rachmaninoff, and Debussy.

Praxis

I have been teaching history at the college level for fourteen years. During that time, I have emphasized improving writing skills with my students. Last year, I graduated from Kent State University with my PhD in history. I am certified by WyzAnt in grammar, reading, and vocabulary. I believe my skills and experience certify me to tutor for the Praxis examination for teachers.

Religion

As a professor of world history and Western civilization I have eighteen years of experience in teaching the concepts and history of world religions. I have the most knowledge about the three great monotheistic faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. I also cover the ancient polytheistic religions and the religions of the Far East.

Social Studies

I have a PhD in History and I have taught Western Civilization, World History, and American History for fourteen years on the college level. I am certified to tutor in History and Geography and would like to be certified in Social Studies.

Study Skills

I have my BA, MA, and PhD in history. I have been teaching history at the college level for fourteen years. During that time, I have also tutored college, high school, and primary school students in effective study methods. I have introduced students to strategies for organizing material in order to remember and understand it.

World History

I teach world history at the college level.
