About Oscar

I am a tutor who is very patient with Middle School children. I Don't drive, and I can take the bus to get to my destination. Also, in addition, this is no problem for me. THIS I have also been a Substitute Teacher for the El Paso Independent School District here in El Paso Texas.
In addition, I have taught handicapped students as well as regular students as well.
Grades I have mainly taught are 6 thru 8. At times I did teach Elementary School (grades K thru 5) . To be honest, Middle School was my favorite, grades (6 thru 8).
The students enjoyed having me as a "Substitute Teacher because I was patient and "cool".
Specific courses I have taken are Algebra I, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus and some statistics. In addition, computer courses which are : BASIC, Fortran IV, and some COBOL.
But, I have really enjoyed teaching middle school most of all. My students have told me that I am very fast doing calculations in my head without the use of a
calculator and I have memorized some formulas from a few of the disciplines.
I wish to be given a chance to prove myself with fellow students.

Thank you,
Oscar A.

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 Programming

My Programming qualifications were learned while attending my college and University. The programming languages which I had to learn are: Basic, Fortran, and Cobol at this particular time. I had to take a year of each language and some computer math courses, and courses on how to translate given problems and formulas for the computer to run the various programs

Computer Science

I have completed both lower level and some higher level computer courses and work. I was a computer tutor in computer languages such as: Basic, Fortran . and COBOL. I was working at my University here, helping students with their programming in their respective computer language. At this time, the old "punch-card" IBM machines were used and PC computers were just making their way in. I also helped students in this respect. and this was all done at my University.

Visual Basic

BASIC (Beginners All Purpose Instructional Computer), is the first ideal language for a person to start to learn to program. One has to learn to "Translate" formulas whether it be mathematical or a Business type of formula. The formulas can be simple to complex. Even instructing the computer to repeat itself; for example, a "DO-LOOP" telling the computer to repeat a specific instruction X number of times. My qualifications are college, and a few higher level computer languages. It can also be fun and frustrating at the same time.
