About Ethan

Hello! My name is Ethan. I just moved to Raleigh in pursuit of my Master's degree in Architecture. I hold a Bachelor's of Science in Architectural Sciences. I've worked in architecture, interior design, construction, and utility asset management consistently for the past 2.5 years. These positions have provided me with extensive, real-world technical abilities in Autodesk, Adobe, and Trimble (SketchUp) design and visualization software. My educational experience on the other hand has provided me with the same degree of expertise, but in a wider range of applications.

I specialize in AutoCAD, AutoCAD Map, AutoCAD Civil 3D, Autodesk Revit, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, and Trimble Sketchup. While I do not have formal experience tutoring, I have taught colleagues and coworkers of various age groups and educational backgrounds, or assisted them with design/visualization needs. I teach sustainably, with the goal being fluency. Knowing the tool well enough to teach someone else and use it flexibly, is what is important to me.

Ideally, before taking on a student, I would like to organize a free consultation to identify the student's needs or goals. From there, I will create a lesson schedule tailored to their needs. I'm patient, open-minded, and have experience teaching a variety of students--from non-English speaking, to older students. I'm available 5pm-9pm on weeknights and during typical business hours on weekends. If you're interested, feel free to contact me for more details.

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.

Adobe Illustrator

My ability with Adobe Illustrator is to the extent of practical application. I learned and used Illustrator in my undergraduate architectural coursework, to create presentations and portfolios, as well as in graduate coursework. I have experience exchanging information from Illustrator to CAD and SketchUp, and preparing vector files for laser cutting. I will teach students as much of the information as I know, as well as directing them to helpful resources.

Adobe InDesign

My ability with Adobe InDesign is to the extent of practical application. I learned and used InDesign in my undergraduate architectural coursework, to create presentations and portfolios. I have experience managing solo and group projects which utilize InDesign's linkable abilities. I will teach students as much of the information as I know, as well as directing them to helpful resources.

Adobe Photoshop

My ability with Adobe Photoshop is to the extent of practical application. I learned and used Photoshop in my undergraduate architectural coursework, and continue to use it in graduate coursework to create presentations and portfolios. I will teach students as much of the information as I know, as well as directing them to helpful resources.

AutoCAD

My educational experience with AutoCAD dates back to 2009, with consistent use in high school and undergraduate education. I have two and a half years of professional experience with AutoCAD and other variations (AutoCAD Map and AutoCAD Civil 3D). I have used AutoCAD for schematics, development, and documentation of architectural products and utility asset management.

Revit

I was both self and formally taught Revit in a fast-paced, competitive environment. I have two years of educational experience--with more to come; and two years of professional experience, creating presentation models and construction documents. My specialties are architectural and structural modeling, with additional knowledge of the Dynamo programming plug-in.

Sketchup

Current architectural education tries to prepare one to not be inhibited by their (digital) design tools...my digital models reflected this fluency. I am both, formally and self taught in SketchUp, since 2009, and have continued to use it in the workplace. My application is mainly architectural and schematic in detail; however, I have a strong understanding of efficient modeling and production practices.
