I'm afraid I don't ahve any specific nurbs tutorial for you. But you could simply, using an ear's picture reference, draw the curves on it, adjust them, loft them, adjust again and so on...

Again, not a tutorial but there's some good images showing the topology of nurb's ears in this thread...

Probably a lot of useful info on nurbs modelling in that whole thread if you're prepared to trawl through it all.

It's not an ear, but it's patch modeling. If you can do this tutorial, you can do an ear.

Just incorporate the same ideas into what you're looking for. It's basically the same thing.
