Personally, I am a life-long learner, constantly expanding my knowledge base with most of the architectural design programs. My goal with tutoring is to answer the student's questions and teach them how I would find the solution. I enjoy teaching people and troubleshooting the issues they are having.
I have been using Revit and many other design programs academically and professionally since 2005. I have successfully been involved with implementing firm standards and practices at several architecture firms. Having used the program for project documentation as well presentation graphics, I've been able to expose myself to all portions of Revit. My experiences have allowed me to teach within my firms where I am able to work with entry level and expert level users.
My expertise ranges from general drafting knowledge, complex modeling solutions, and parametric modeling.

He taught me, not only more Revit commands, but how to use different commands to get to the same "point". I enjoyed the "learning experience" , and I am looking forward to learning more from him in "the very near future". It would be nice for ALL tutors to have his experience and demeanor.
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.
I have been using Adobe Creative Suite software since 2002 both academically and professionally for presentation purposes within the architectural field. I was self taught but have taken a few elective courses on the subject during graduate school. I use Photoshop to produce presentation images of buildings for clients, Rugby tournament advertisements, and personal graphics.
I have been using Autodesk CAD since 1997 and have a well above average knowledge of the program. I've been able to use it academically as well as professionally for many years. I mostly use Revit now but I have used CAD for construction documents, CNC machining, 3D modeling, I've used it for rending purposes exporting to 3ds Max and other rendering programs. I have advanced knowledge of it's 3d modeling, surveying, layering, and most of it's other components. My first CAD course was in 7th grade. Academically, I've had many courses with it. Professionally, I used it full time for 2 years. Now I use it once or twice a week for the past 3 years.
I began using Revit the senior year of undergraduate architecture school. While I am self taught, I have attended 1 course for the program and 2 training sessions. Professionally, I have used the program every day for the past 3 years and am one of the experts at a firm that has a single digit Revit license, meaning they are one of the first ten firms to use the program. I've used Revit for rendering and construction documents. I've worked with all design disciplines to incorporate their models. I've had the opportunity to work on all size projects with it and have been the lead BIM coordinator on all of them. Most recently I finished an K-5 school and am working on the demolition package of 2/3 of a hospital. I am capable of advanced modeling, presentation graphics, multi program integration, parametric modeling, advanced formula writing, and just about anything the program has to offer.
