About Rich

I feel confident that my education and experience as a Registered Professional Civil Engineer could benefit others looking for a tutor in civil engineering or a related math or science field of study.

I also hold a BS and MS in civil engineering. I have used various versions of AUTOCAD over my 15 years of experience working in the engineering field.

A good tutor can have a huge positive effect not only on an individual’s professional career but also their personal life as well. I believe I have many of the qualities of a good tutor including patience, listening skills, a willingness to answer questions, and a knowledge of my field. Helping others achieve their goals is important to me.

I have valued my past academic and practicing mentors, who have patiently passed on their knowledge and skills in an esteemed manner, and I am eager to empower others in the same way. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to having an opportunity to meet with you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 used various versions of AUTOCAD over my 15 years of practice as an engineer. Most recently I have used AUTOCAD Civil 3D over the past several years to generate civil roadway designs. I have created multiple alignments, profiles, and cross sections.

Civil Engineering

I am a registered Civil Engineer in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I also hold a BS and MS in civil engineering.

Microsoft Outlook

I have used Microsoft Outlook at work regularly over the past 8 years. During this time I have learned the capabilities of the software for receiving email, storage of emails, use of calendars, mass mailings, meeting notifications, etc. I feel that this experience has given me enough of an understanding of the software to be able to help a student who needs assistance.

Microsoft Windows

As an engineer, I have been required to frequently use a windows based operating system. I have always used a windows PC at work and at home. With this experience, through the years, I have had the opportunity to become very familiar with Microsoft Windows and the various versions that have been available.

Very knowledgeable tutor — Rich taught me how to find the zero force members, analysis of trusses, and deflection. He has an excellent way of breaking down the problems and explaining in a simple way. Rich has a depth of knowledge of subject matter. He is interested in helping others to learn. I am looking forward to my next lesson. Highly recommended! ...
