Granting a user privilges only to tables he owns

I am trying figure how to grant a user I had created the right to create, update, delete, drop and alter tables, but only the ones that belong to that user. With my limited knowlege of Oracle, all could find so far is either alter any table or nothing at all. How can I give this user the privilege of adding columns to tables he owns but not to any other? I appreciate any help that you can give me.

A user automatically has full control over objects that they own. And you cannot remove that control from them. So you don't have to worry about granting privileges on objects that they own. They own those objects and they can do what they please with those objects. This same user will not be able to touch other user's objects unless privileges have been granted to that user.
