I LOVE to help teach others how to reach that 'moment of epiphany' in the various complex drafting and design software environments that I've come to enjoy! I am a national and international award-winning designer from the aquatics, theme construction, and swimming pool industry that fell on hard times, went back to school, and completed my A.Sc honors degree in computer-aided drafting design from ITT Technical Institute.

I am currently on sabbatical in my dual-B.Sc in construction management project management at ITT Technical Institute in Tempe, Arizona. I have served as a teacher's aid in AutoCAD environments for a few engineering and architectural adjunct professors, and as a peer-to-peer tutor in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. I teach in a very laid-back, usually humorous way, and sense someone's abilities and personal style near instantly. Due to software complexities, everyone adapts in vastly different times and ways. Generally, there are three major ways to navigate these programs, with 3-5 sub-methods in each, all getting to the same result. Therefore, I teach what is easiest for you, not me. Furthermore, I still learn something new daily!

Greg’s subjects

Adobe Photoshop

As part of my rather intense A.Sc degree in CADD, Adobe Photoshop CS-3 & CS-5 are part of my portfolio of great tools, incorporating Photoshop, Illustrator, AfterEffects & other lesser-known software. I am quite familiar with these programs & the 'magic' you can do in them, from basic photo & imagery editing, to more complex overlays & renderings reconstruction. I still 'struggle' with some navigational aspects assigned into toolspaces, which clearly are 'designed-assigned' by program writers, not users! If you need tutoring in navigating this powerful tool, please contact me!

AutoCAD

As an A.Sc Honors degree graduate on March 26th, 2012, in Computer Aided Drafting & Design, my AutoCAD skills are of expert-level in all the following AutoCAD software environments:
* AutoCAD 2008-2013
*AutoCAD MEP 2009-2013
*Civil 3D 2010-2013

Within these programs, I am an expert in all of the basic and advanced parameters of operation:
* setting-up features, options, scales, units, tollerances, layers, plotting tables, sheet-sets & personal preferences
* navigating, designing,assigning layers, line-types, line-weights & required ANSI drawing standards with symbology protocols for architectural, engineering & manufacturing (ANSI Y14.5M-1994 & 2008 Conventions)
* library protocols, filing systems & extension protocols

With respect to import-export & visualization of all project scope types, I am of expert calibre in all areas related to:
*saving protocols
* .pdf, .dgn, & .dwf export conversions
* 2D & 3D drawing & parametrics/solids
*creating activatable properties
* creation of xref & block files
* importation of imagery, xclipping & rasterization control

English

English is the most difficult language to master in the world, but I can help make sense of it, whether the topics are schooling-based or business based. I specialize in grammar & vocabulary building blocks, creative writing, business & report structuring, and basic thesis' structuring.

Government & Politics

Government & politics is an area every American needs to know more about, and in which I am well-versed. Whether the area is American federal or states in nature, I can help. I am familiar with our weakened federalist republic vs 'democracy', and know the differences politically. The odds are high that if just 1/3 of America knew that difference, plus our U.S. Constitution, we would not have come to where we are today, largely beginning circa early 1900's with the President Woodrow Wilson administration. If you need help here, please contact me!

Grammar

For whatever unknown reasons, I have 'known' English grammar since an early childhood age, never paying much attention in classes, yet always scoring above 90% from 2nd grade through college. What is English in nature to me is 'algebra' to others. Wether grammar school or professional in needs, I can help you dissect any sentence and help you decode what every word or phrase within represents. If you learn this area and a better vocabulary, you very likely will not only become a great writer, but you will add value to a future income.

Microsoft PowerPoint

PowerPoint is a great tool used in fully-intelligent presentations. I am familiar with all basic to complex navigational parameters, from styling-set ups-text insertions, to more complex audio-visual effects & imaginary controls.

Microsoft Project

As part of my past professional portfolio, plus my current B.Sc x 2 degree programs in Construction Mgt. & Project Mgt., I find Microsoft Project 2003-2007 & 2010 to be indispensable in any number of project types and scopes, whether for professional applications or personal organizational uses. I am trained in basic project operation, set-up standards & navigation to more complex formulas usage similar to Excel & intelligent data importation, such as video-linking. If you need help with Project, please contact me!

Microsoft Word

I am familiar and adept in navigating all Microsoft Word parameters and wide-ranging documentation processes, from basic letter writing to imagery integration protocols & editing. I am familiar with all features in Word.

Reading

Reading is the cornerstone of our ability to advance, both in ideas expression and in detailing our imaginative thoughts, whether in math, business or recreational in nature, we must be able to read and comprehend in order to function and enrich our lives. If you need help in understanding what you are reading, I can help!

Revit

As an A.Sc Honors degree graduate on March 26th, 2012, in Computer Aided Drafting & Design, my Autodesk Revit skills are of expert-level in all the following Revit software environments:
* Revit Architecture 2010-2013
* Revit MEP 2010-2013
* Revit Structure 2010-2013

Within these programs, I am an expert in all of the basic and advanced parameters of operation:
* setting-up features, options, scales, units, levels, plotting, sheet-sets & personal preferences
* navigating, designing & manipulating the parametric model in camera views, sectioning & elevations
* setting detailed property assignments unique to Revit & browser toolspaces in MEP.
* .rfa library protocols, filing systems & extension protocols

With respect to import-export & visualization of all project scope types, I am of expert caliber in all areas related to:
*saving protocols
* .pdf, .rfa, & rendering to .jpg/.png export conversions & internal browser saves
* 3D drawing & parametrics/solids
*creating activatable properties & .rfa files
* creation of xref & block files
* importation of imagery, xclipping & rasterization control

Vocabulary

This really is the required building blocks of creative, or detailed written communication. A strong vocabulary represents the way to communicate your most precise point or idea using the fewest words, in most cases. Therefore, think of 'vocabulary' as mostly a collection of adjectives, adverbs and prepositional phrases. Whether for business & reports communication purposes, or flowing sentences of greater detailing of imagination, I will help you convey and elaborate in this lost art. Whether your needs are of grammar school age or professional, feel free to contact me!

World History

One thing is a constant in humanity: world history knowledge as the best source in answering today's questions and tomorrow's dilemmas. Although each generation thinks we are smarter and better than the previous, a simple cursory study of world history vividly shows this not only is a false premise, but indeed, we may be 'going the other way', particularly in USA. My knowledge of historical world events, challenges and historical solutions used is strong. I believe world history is now the most critical area of education in dealing with today's schooling issues, above math, sciences and English.

Writing

Most people struggle in this area of the English language, much of this caused by intimidation due to English is the most difficult language to learn. Beyond conflicting grammatical rules, English is the toughest due to the near infinity of adjectives, adverbs and resulting prepositional phrases. English is a jungle, but also makes it the 'best' language. One key is to first learn more about grammar, then add vocabulary a bit, then begin focus on writing conciseness and/or creativity. Before you know it, you can be a strong and articulated writer, once I help you find the key we all have!
