About Mark

Hi,

I graduated from BYU in 1983 with a B.S. in design engineering and a minor in math/calculus. I also completed the requirements for a B.A. in art and design, emphasis drawing-human portraits and human figure studies.

I was a mechanical design engineer for 31 years.

I studied algebra, geometry, trigonometry and differential equations in high school. My ACT score for Math was 99 (highest possible). My minor at BYU included three semesters of calculus and one semester of "elementary" algebra (graduate-level class).

I would like to share my knowledge and experience:

My engineering experience included 14 years in aerospace engineering working for Honeywell, Boeing, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin (if you need help learning GD&T, I have used it in my work for over 30 years).

While working at Honeywell and Raytheon, I had a "Secret" Security Clearance, which is a major background check done by the United States Department of Defense (DOD).

My work in years past included mentoring younger, less experienced engineers. I have always loved math and consider it my "second language". I would like to help you love it also.

Thank You,

Mark

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 took AutoCAD coursework at Gateway Community College, summer semester, 1994, in Phoenix, AZ. I have since used it in my Design Engineering career for the past 20 years. I use AutoCAD for 2-D applications only. I also use the "hot keys" method, so it does not matter which release version of AutoCAD I am on. I also have 17 years experience using Pro-Engineer / CREO, a 3-D virtual modeling software.

Drawing

I received a B.A. in Art and Design, December, 1980, Brigham Young University. The curriculum included courses in art fundamentals, composition and design. It also included several courses in art history. My emphasis was Drawing- Human Portraiture and Human Figure Studies. I have a portfolio. My secondary emphasis was pottery.

Painting

I received a B.A. in art and design at BYU, Provo, in December, 1980. My studies included oil painting and watercolor. My emphasis was sketching, which is critical in the painting process. You need to have a good sketch before you paint.

Precalculus

I finished all the pre-calculus requirements in high school and took Calculus I in my senior year. Math is a second language to me. My father was good in math. I completed a minor in Math in college. My major was Design Engineering. My career (30 years) has been as a Mechanical Design Engineer, so maybe I can give you some insights into that also.
