About Larry

For more than 20 years I taught AutoCAD, Cadkey and Bausch & Lomb Graphics software at two local junior colleges in the Chicago, Illinois area.

I taught both college level classes and Level 1 and 2 accelerated classes for Autodesk. It was required that I become a certified Autodesk instructor. I was always one of the highest rated instructors for Autodesk. I am proficient in all versions of the software up to AutoCAD 2016.

I teach AutoCAD in a simple language that a novice can understand. I did so well when I took my first CAD class that my instructor asked me to teach the class. I eventually got good enough at the subject material that I was asked to teach different CAD classes. I taught my first AutoCAD class right after taking a 24 hour accelerated class. I became one of highest rated Autodesk instructors and was the only teacher that did not use the software.

After retiring as an adjunct AutoCAD instructor I went to work for the city of Rosemont, Illinois as an independent CAD layout contractor. I tape measured and drew (from scratch) the entire Allstate Arena building, Ticket Office across the street, the underground tunnel connecting the buildings and their two parking lots. I currently do the stage layout and seating for the concerts, shows and sporting events.

I have been hired by the Mayor & Treasurer of Rosemont, Illinois to draw new concert venues at different outdoor locations in their city. I also do CAD work as an outside contractor for a company drawing Hot Aisle Containment Systems in computer server rooms. I have done both 2D and 3D CAD drawings that are used in their product/installation quotations.

As an outside contractor, I also do hardware and software repairs on stand-alone PC's for a few select companies and individuals.

AMAZING Tutor!

Larry has been an AMAZING tutor! On our first session he assessed very quickly where I was at in AutoCAD and was able to get me where I needed to be for my career. I have had a year experience with AutoCAD, but it had been four years since I used it. In a weeks' time with Larry I have been able to learn what I had forgot and then some! He showed me different ways to approach drawings and man
