Kurt's Bio

A dynamic and nurturing educator for many years in mathematics, information systems, and test prep, Kurt brings real-world experience to his classroom and tutoring sessions. Kurt attributes his dad, a career educator in the New York City school system, to giving him an appreciation for a practical approach to education. Kurt had a parallel thirty-five year career as a business and financial systems professional with diversified experience in the insurance, brokerage, and banking industries. Most recently, Kurt had the great fortune to work directly with Microsoft, managing a team of Skype for Business engineers at a BPO technical support center. Seeking a change of pace from corporate America, Kurt completed his certification as a secondary school mathematics teacher (grades 6-12). He thoroughly enjoys helping the next generation navigate the test prep landscape, fundamental mathematics concepts, and beyond.

Kurt firmly believes in a collaboration among students, teachers, parents, and tutors. He knows it is important to validate what students perceive to be their issues with what the teachers and parents understand. He adapts his tutoring style to the needs of the students based on the total home and school environment for a seamless learning experience. Using a probing question style of tutoring (in the spirit of standard pedagogical techniques), Kurt motivates his students to think for themselves rather than spoon feed the answers. Although the approach may look like a painful struggle on occasion, he knows how to get the best performance out of his students by building their confidence and keeping them relaxed. There is no better feeling for Kurt when his students are proud and happy about their accomplishments.

Kurt's teaching and tutoring background is enhanced by his athletic coaching experience in youth soccer and Little League baseball. He is also a USA Weightlifting certified sports performance coach and referee. Not one to sit on the sidelines, Kurt currently competes as a masters weightlifter and is a former competitive masters rower with the Carnegie Lake Rowing Association in Princeton, New Jersey.
