Please feel free to visit the Business Learning Center (BLC) and see me for any troubling accounting material you might have.

I tutor BA 200, MATH 125 & 165, and ACTG 210. I have extensive experience in writing, reading, leadership, mathematical, and communicational skills. I have facilitated tutoring sessions, group-work, and class discussions. I have been tutoring for over three years now and I continuously enjoy the work I do and the people I help.

Name: Kerry Kurcz
Subjects: IDS 200, IDS 270, IDS 371
My name is Kerry, I am an information & decision science major, minoring in mathematics & computer science. I am a senior and I am planning on graduating in the fall 2017 semester. I also have a background in creative writing, leadership, and humanities. I tutor in IDS 200, IDS 270, and IDS 371. Personally, I believe just talking about the material with my peers better helps you prepare for the potential complexity of solving problems or figuring out programs, like Excel or Access. I think everyone has their own style of learning and I will do my best to listen for and accommodate for your style!

I have a wealth of academic and professional experiences that I am eager to share with students so they are better able to tackle their classes and succeed in their careers. I am looking forward to working with as many students as I can this semester – so why not get the ball rolling and reach out to me with any questions or comments and we can go from there!
