About German


Bio

I graduated top of my class with a M.S. in Structural Engineering. I tutored over 23 Engineering related subjects for about 12 years. I obtained my Professional Engineering license in Civil Engineering in 2015 and now own and operate my own Engineering firm. I have been working in the industry of Engineering, Construction, and Manufacturing and use it to relate techniques from the classroom to the real world.

I graduated top of my class with a M.S. in Structural Engineering. I tutored over 23 Engineering related subjects for about 12 years. I obtained my Professional Engineering license in Civil Engineering in 2015 and now own and operate my own Engineering firm. I have been working in the industry of Engineering, Construction, and Manufacturing and use it to relate techniques from the classroom to the real world.
As an undergraduate student, I maintained a 3.95 Engineering G.P.A. while at CSUN. I have various techniques to help students grasp difficult topics and ideas. There have been many professors in my family, and I have developed some of my techniques from watching them.
At CSUN, I tutored Calculus 1, 2 and 3; Differential Equations; Physics, Mechanics and Electromagnetism; Engineering Statics and Dynamics; AutoCAD; Material Science; Strength of Materials; Construction Management; Structures; Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, and Hydraulics; Steel Design; Concrete Design; Vibrations; Fundamentals of Circuits; Engineering Statistics; Engineering Economics; Fundamentals of Soils and Foundations.
I have also tutored subjects from the Structural Engineering graduate program at CSUN, as well as helping students prepare for the California EIT Exam and the California Civil Engineering PE Exam. As a part of my graduate studies, I have taken courses in Timber & Masonry Design, Pre-Stressed Concrete Design, Advanced Steel Design, Structural Dynamics, Earthquake Engineering, Advanced Mathematics, Finite Element Analysis and Advanced Differential Equations.
I continue to study new subjects and grow as an Engineer and Educator. I pride myself in knowing that my students can count on me to help them with almost any topic they encounter. My students know that if there is anyone who can explain a complicated Engineering, Math or Physics topic; it is me.

AutoCAD

I have 3+ years experience with AutoCAD My main experience deals with Construction Documents and reading plans. I am very familiar with the majority of AutoCAD functions. I am also capable of teaching Google SketchUp, Google Layout 3, SAP2000, RISA 2D & RISA 3D

Calculus

As a part of my Civil Engineering Program at CSUN, I took Courses in Calculus 1 and 2, as well as Multivariable Calculus. Math and Physics are definitely my strongest subjects, and they provide the foundation for the more advanced Civil Engineering subjects. I am very good at relating the math to actual physical representations. It helps students, by providing a visual aid to each specific topic. Visual aids help differentiate between topics, making the student more successful with word problems.
Physics,

Physics

I am very Knowledgeable in Mechanics. I am able to work with Kinematics, Kinetics, Momentum, Collisions, Relative Velocities, Instantaneous Centers, Newton's Laws of Motion, etc. I took the course as a part of my Engineering Program, therefore I can use Calculus to solve problems. However, many simple problems can be solved using pure algebra. Calculus can be used to derive the equations used in Mechanics, but once the equations and their components are understood, the solutions can be found without a full understanding of Calculus.

I have a B.S. in Civil Engineering from California State University, Northridge. I am also currently working on my M.S. Degree in Structural Engineering. The list provided below a list of courses that are provided in the majority of Civil Engineering programs. I tutored in the Engineering Department at California State University, Northridge for about 2 years, and tutored privately prior to that for 2 years. My Engineering G.P.A. was 3.95 based on a 4.0 scale, and I was on the Dean's List for 8 consecutive semesters. Subjects included: 1. Engineering Statics: Analyzing determinant structures. This includes beams, trusses, and 3D problems as well. I can help with equations involving Newton's Laws of Motion, Moment Equations, Shear and Moment Diagrams. I can also help with Truss Analysis methods that include the Method of Joints, as well as the Method of Sections. I was placed in charge of many workshops, and worked closely with the Professors to help increase the pass rate for this subject. 2. Dynamics: This is very similar to Mechanics in Physics. I can help with Projectile problems involving kinetics as well as kinematics. I can also help with Mechanics problems that involve Newton's Laws of Motion, DaLambert's reverse inertia, Energy equations, Momentum and Impulse problems, Collision problems, Relative Velocity problems, Instantaneous Center problems, and anything else that would be included in any typical Engineering Dynamics class. 4. Strength of Materials: This class is builds on the concepts learned in Engineering Statics. This focuses more on Shear and Moment Diagrams, Normal Stresses, Shear Stresses, Yield Points, Torsion and Torque, Deflections of determinant structures. It provides the foundation for Structural Analysis concepts as well as provides the reasoning for safety factors in Code Books. 6. Structural Analysis: This is similar to Engineering Statics, but deals much more difficult problems such as Statically Indeterminant Structures. I can help with concepts and problems involving
Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I am experienced with Ordinary Linear Differential Equations. I am very Knowledgeable with Homogeneous and Non-homogeneous solutions. Very comfortable with Undetermined Coefficients and Variation of Parameters. Those components of differential equations have been very applicable to Vibration Analysis as well as Structural Dynamics. The idea behind differential equations is the biggest obstacle in understanding how differential equations work and how they can be applied in real world problems.
