All of Gary’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Gary’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Civil Engineering

I am a registered professional civil engineer in the states of California and Colorado. I have practiced engineering for 29 years (12 years in the U.S. Air Force, and 17 years while working for National Home Insurance Company).

While at National Home Insurance Company, I trained staff structural engineers in analysis of nationwide structural and geotechnical residential situations. I also coordinated structural investigation and repair of damaged residences with structural and geotechnical engineering consultants. This work involved a broad knowledge of soil mechanics and structural engineering, as well as the ability to communicate with and direct engineering consultants. I conducted structural and geotechnical engineering research projects that ensured accurate company decisions and minimized company expenses.

While serving as an engineering officer with the U.S. Air Force, I designed engineering projects for building additions, renovations, and new single-story buildings. I also served as a member of a joint venture construction management team on a $32 million Middle East remote underground command/control facility, monitored project cost, schedule, and quality resulting in on-time, on-schedule, within-budget construction progress, as well as identified and scheduled manpower, equipment and material requirements for civil engineering projects.

I have also taught two one-semester college physics courses.

Computer Programming

My Bachelor's Degree is in Civil Engineering, and my Master's is in Engineering Management. My professional software development experience is in PowerBASIC and VBA/Excel, and includes turn-key corporate programming in the areas of construction estimation, workload balancing, business trend analysis, equity cyclic analysis, and engineering numerical methods. My programming self-education includes having thoroughly read the following books:

QBASIC By Example, The Easiest Way to Learn How to Program (Greg Perry, 1993).

The PowerBASIC Console Compiler Reference Guide (2002).

Power Programming With VBA/Excel (Steven C. Chapra, 2003).

How to Become a Highly Paid Corporate Programmer (Paul H. Harkins, 2004).

Numerical Methods for Engineers, Fourth Edition (Steven C. Chapra and Raymond P. Canale, 2003).

Visual Basic

Subject: Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)/Excel.

I completed a book on VBA/Excel as part of a self-study program in which I have accomplished detailed solution of over 500 engineering numerical methods problems during the last eight years using VBA/Excel and PowerBASIC compilers. Problem types: engineering, physics, calculus, roots of equations, linear algebraic equations, optimization, curve fitting, market cyclic analysis, and business management.

Specific VBA/Excel topics and problem categories that I can teach and/or solve:

1. Customized worksheet functions.
2. Modular and structured programming.
3. Object-oriented programming.
4. Debugging and testing.
5. Variable scope.
6. Engineering computations.
7. Strings and dialog boxes.
8. Data structures (arrays and records).
9. Creating and accessing files.
10. Custom dialog boxes.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
