About Arturo

I taught introductory physics as adjunct faculty for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Atlanta Metro center) and Space Systems Management for Webster University (Denver Metro center). I have Master's degrees in physics from California State University (Northridge) and in Space Studies from the University of North Dakota. I am currently retired after 33 years of Air Force and Federal Civil Service, mainly in the space and missiles field. I am committed to a second career of teaching and education in physics. I have tutored college physics students enrolled at Florida Institute of Technology, University of Central Florida, Florida State University, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Eastern Florida State College, and Indian River State College. I have tutored high school physics students, including Honors and Advanced Placement students, enrolled at Satellite High School, Heritage High School, Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy, Cocoa Beach Junior/Senior High School, and Westshore Junior/Senior High School.

Students often find physics classes to be intimidating. I address that by emphasizing the logic behind solving physics problems, focusing on identifying the correct systems of thought and sources of information that are relevant to the problem, leading logically to a concise mathematical formulation of the problem, followed by a workable solution. I emphasize concepts and methodology over memorization of formulas. I am prepared to tutor physics subject matter over a range of level from junior high school through college sophomore.

Being retired, I am flexible in my scheduling. However, if we commit to regular tutoring sessions, I will require a 24 hour notice of cancellation. I will be flexible to reschedule missed lessons. I am willing to meet with students at a mutually convenient location within the general Florida space coast region, as far north as Cocoa Beach and as far south as Palm Bay. Teaching references are available on request. Please contact me if you think I may be of service.

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.

Physics

I have Master of Science degrees in physics and in space studies. My professional career has been interdisciplinary, including fields such as nuclear science and technology, rocket science, aeronautics, and space science. I am also an experienced instructor, having taught introductory college physics as adjunct faculty for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and Space Systems Dynamics as adjunct faculty for Webster University.

Wonderful Tutor

Tutor is very knowledgeable in the subject of physics. Tutor is very patient when the student does not understand what is being said and is willing to repeat himself more than once with patience and also finds different ways to explain things if the topic is not understood the first time. Tutor works out every problem in detail with the student and teaches/explains each problem step-by-step with w
