"Call me Curt. I'm a retired Navy Officer and vocational education specialist here in beautiful Colorado. I have a bachelor's degree in history (minor in Spanish) from Chapman University in Orange, California. I tutored students of all ages both on line and at Arapahoe Community College. Does American History seem difficult or boring to you? It is nevertheless a subject you need to pass. I have helped many students to learn what they needed to know to pass their tests or write their essays. A few have even realized that history isn’t so difficult and boring after all. American history is like the story of our own family. We only want to be safe and happy and enjoy life, and history is all about how difficult that can be. Having problems mastering your Mac or PC? Need help with that writing project you can't get started? Are Spanish verb tenses making you tense (not to mention moody)? I'm here to help and I've been doing this stuff for years. My tutoring methods are to help the student past trouble spots by using the student's strengths to overcome subject area weakness. I am an experienced freelance writer. I have written thousands of articles, white papers, and commercial blogs for government, academic and business clients. Have tutored writing on line and helped students with APA and MLA research writing. Writing is more than just grammar and structure, but you can't get to the next step without the foundation. I teach the foundation and the next step. Computers have been my passion and hobby for over 40 years. I started with a Radio Shack TRS, went to a low storage, underpowered PC, and am currently using a powerful Mac. Between Radio Shack and Mac, I learned operating systems, office applications, and data bases. I taught Windows, Word, and MS Access to college students for 6 semesters at a California Community college. Finally, I love tutoring beginning and intermediate Spanish learners of all ages. I minored in Spanish in college, and have been a part-time tutor and "bilingual hobbyist" and writer for years. If you are struggling at picking up Spanish grammar, I feel your pain. I can help, because Spanish has been my second language for over 60 years. Contact me to learn more about how I can help you through rough spots, or just keep your skills current. I am retired, so my schedule is flexible. Don't let my scheduled times put you off. I can arrange a tutoring session any time." less...
