With 15 years in the Architectural/Engineering design profession, I have worked on small architectural projects, i.e. condo/coop renovations, private home modernization and as well as large private and public works projects.

I've worked on the new World Trade Center Transportation Hub, the Valhalla, NY Ultra-Violet Water Treatment Plant. In addition I done patent pending drawings for various inventors and designers needing detailed, patent drawings for patent submission.

Utilizing a wide variety of design software: AutoCAD, Architectural Desktop, AutoCAD MEP 3D, Revit (Architecture, Structure, MEP) both as a operator/CAD manager position as well as a instructor, I've watched the design soft-
ware capability evolve extensively from basic 2D drawings to 3D and 4D design and analysis. The designs have gotten more complex and software have definitely gotten more involved to facilitate those designs.

I've thoroughly enjoyed my work both as a instructor and as a operator/CAD manager, watching designs develop informally from notes, sketches, specifications, to formalized, highly detailed drawings to the actual build project in the field. The transformation is from art/engineered to engineered art. Truthfully I get a visceral
reaction working on projects from inception to close out.

Thus knowing that the engineering side of design is very, very detailed, extremely math oriented, one cannot and must not be lax in preparation and design. From there, both as a instructor and a designer I demand that attention to detail while I support that students not only enjoy the artistic approach to design/build but more importantly pursue the engineered aspect in a highly organized, detailed fashion.

In engineering design, especially architecture, people's lives depend on your attention to detail and the desire to execute that organizational approach at the highest level.

Oft times when you see accidents occurring at the work site, it is largely due to human error. Human error as in not paying exquisite attention to detail, be it the materials used and their condition and functionality,
be it the build process itself or any conjunction thereof.

I always want my students to do well. I want 'A' students who enjoy what they do. That enjoyment is a tremendous motivator. Cut no corners, follow all the rules, execute the process, that same mentality is what you would use in any math/logical endeavor to achieve the desired goal.

I am a disciplinarian. I do not take a haphazard approach to learning. The building blocks assembled in the right order, guarantees that you'll have minimal difficulty. And as the build process gets more complicated, that habit of attention to detail, execution and organization will serve you well. Just ask a good design engineer.
I am always pushing my students to do better. One can always improve. There is always an area that needs additional work, be it you the designer and/or the project itself. I want my students to do well in life. So I start with little areas that may need improvement, looking to open them up to the big picture of life itself. I drive, I push, I do not accept failure, and I always challenge them to
their best and then some.

From high school students to seasoned professional engineer/designers, this has been my basic approach.

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.

Architecture

I have been working in architecture engineering for over 10+ years. My experience includes everything from AutoCAD/Revit specialist to work as a instructor in the same subjects.

In AutoCAD I've done construction document assemblage to 3d work, putting together patent application drawings. I've worked with structural engineers/architectural in all kinds
of large, medium and small projects. From residential work to very large scale projects, high tech water treatment plants. In Revit, I've worked structural/architectural modeling, as well
as mep 3D layouts. I can do animations (walkthroughs and flyarounds) and rendering of modeling scenes, inclusive of material assignments.

I have a very good understanding of the fundamental construction process, from design/build to facilities management. I can certainly help you in your architectural endeavors.

AutoCAD

I am a 10+ year engineering professional who works and teaches AutoCAD and Revit. I have worked in many engineering and architectural offices doing both AutoCAD and Revit and as well doing the field
work necessary to supplement that software usage. I have a New York state teacher's license in both subjects. I am presently doing freelance work in both AutoCAD and Revit.

Revit

I am a Revit professional with 10 years' experience both teaching and working in various engineering offices designing 3D models. I do structural, mechanical, electrical, piping/plumbing and architectural models. I am very strong in all aspects of Revit, presently working Revit 2014.
