PhD in History, instructor, and tutor
I have been teaching history on the college level for twenty 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 have been teaching history on the college level for twenty 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.

Very first piano lesson....
I was concerned about taking piano lessons via the internet, but Dr. Kurt dispelled that fear almost immediately! He was very calm, patient, and showed a genuine interest in what kind of person I am. He explained (and demonstrated) the exercises he asked me to practice, and let me know the importance of building a solid foundation of learning the basics of playing the piano. I truly believe I’ve found a great instructor with Dr. Kurt!!!!Mark, 2 lessons with Dr. Kurt
Professional, patient and pleasant tutor.
Dr. Kurt worked well in first session with our grandson. He was thorough and patient in explaining his approach and in getting Cory started. Cory is looking forward to more sessions with him.Darl, 16 lessons with Dr. Kurt
He is an average teacher, but with a great character
Dr. Kurt is a history teacher. While I was studying with him, he helped me review for my Final Exam. Although the way he teaches you can be overwhelming (goes too in-depth into one single aspect), he still has the personality of a professional tutor.Chau, 3 lessons with Dr. Kurt
Patient and helpful with my first ever piano lesson. Helped to simplify the notes and break it down into an easy to learn lesson. Gave me sheets to work on when I am home.Tommy, 1 lesson with Dr. Kurt
Dr. Kurt E is an excellent tutor. He set strategies for me to ace in AP Euro Multiple Choice Questions and Long Essay Questions. We had the dry on and he corrected and fixed my mistakes immediately. I highly recommend Dr Kurt E.Ganesan, 4 lessons with Dr. Kurt
Dr Kurt met with my son to work on Modern European History. My son said that it was a great session. He said Dr Kurt explained the lesson in a way that he understood which is exactly what we were looking for. He also said that he is very intelligent and he enjoyed learning with him.Tricia, 5 lessons with Dr. Kurt
Dr. Kurt works with my son on reading, writing, and critical thinking skills. My son is very antsy and Dr. Kurt is very patient and gets through the material I provide for him to work on.Heather, 16 lessons with Dr. Kurt
Dr. Kurt helped me out with the math section of the asvab and ways to eliminate some answer faster methods in solving themTiara, 1 lesson with Dr. Kurt
Very knowledgeable and able to work one on one.
I would definitely use this tutor again for the following reasons: He was very knowledgeable on the subjects, took time to understand work one on one. He actually showed he cared and did not rush. He gave test anxiety advice which is one of my main problems besides the math issue. We plan to meet again for the math section and test anxiety help plus some English. Furthermore I plan to ask to keep Dr. Kurt on for long term for my math classes in my college courses after Dr.Kurt finishes helping me with my ASVAB.Steven, 5 lessons with Dr. Kurt
Great tutor session! Dr. Kurt took time to break down each problem to where I understood everything. Perfect tutor, and I will be scheduling another appointment on Wednesday! Thanks Dr. Kurt!Dominique, 2 lessons with Dr. Kurt
