I have been a mechanical designer and drafter for 17 years, having worked in a variety of industries from Chemical Refining and Sewage Treatment through Power Generation and Biopharmaceutical Purification. I have extensive experience using AutoCAD and AutoDesk Inventor software packages, in real work environments. I am adept at doing accurate work quickly, and I can teach you everything from the basic CAD processes to showing you ways to greatly improve your speed and efficiency.

I can teach everything from introductory AutoCAD and drafting skills through advanced Inventor solid modeling techniques. I can also teach you how to present information through detail and assembly drawings, P&ID's, and rendered illustrations. I can show you how the design process works, from preliminary concept through developing layouts to final detail drawings for manufacture and renderings for clients.

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.

AutoCAD

I have 17 years experience with AutoCAD and 3 years with AutoDesk Inventor on a daily basis to earn my living.

I have experience with piping, mechanical design, P&ID's, drawings, 3-D and solid modeling, welding, steel fabrication, chemical plants, power generation, biopharm filtration skids.

I believe I am good at relating complex concepts in a clear and straightforward manner. To paraphrase Richard Feynman: "If you cannot teach a subject to a college freshman, you do not know the subject."
