About Arthur

I have a BA in History (graduated with honors) and a BS in Computer Science with 3.8/4.0 in major and a minor in Engineering. I took all the math required of an engineer. I have programmed computers on mainframes (IBM and Unisys), minicomputers, and PCs.

I have completed 2 years teaching guided reading to 3rd graders at 2 low performing schools. We use books of all genres and subject areas.
I also taught PC repair and desktop support for 2 years at a vocational school. While pursuing my second degree, I designed and taught a course in computer programming at a prestigious parochial school.

In college, for three years I tutored English for underclassmen and helped graduate students edit their theses. I taught incoming freshmen and students on academic probation a course on college success. Topics included time management, how to take notes, how to study, and test taking strategies. I also taught ESL classes to foreign students. While at UTEP, I tutored all subjects after hours for student athletes.

Finally, I have been a private Spanish tutor. I am a native speaker and took 4 classes in Spanish for native speakers in college. My clients included an executive at Dell and a vice president of a construction company.

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.

Computer Science

I have a BS in computer science with 3.8/4.0 GPA. I have taught PC repair and desktop support. I have programmed computers of all sizes. In my personal business I build, upgrade and repair PCs, and also teach computer basics to end users.

Fitness

I have been a fitness nut since I was 15 years old. At age 40 I completed my first marathon and completed my second one at age 41. I currently work out using weights and calisthenics, but also run, walk, and cycle 6 days a week.

Track & Field

Besides being a fitness nut for 40 years, I ran cross country and track for two years in high school and completed two marathons in my forties while working full time and being a family man.
