About William

I am currently working as Senior Civil Engineer at a large engineering consulting firm, having completed my Master's in Transportation Engineering at Canada's top university: McGill. During my time there I have TA'd for multiple courses and have helped countless classmates, friends, and coworkers with the ins and outs of Excel, ArcGIS, and AutoCAD.

Throughout my engineering curriculum, working in Excel had been a strong suit of mine. In particular though, my thesis project involved extensive data analysis over millions of data points, allowing me to refine my abilities in this program. Currently I am working on another data-intensive project where again I find myself automating processes either with formulas or VBA macros, and teaching my co-workers how to do the same in order to eliminate laborious data entry.

During my Master's thesis I strongly developed my GIS skills by associating millions of data collection points with a number of land-use characteristics obtained via geospatial analysis. Currently, I am again immersed in GIS at work for developing maps for a large-scale infrastructure project in NYC.

Since first learning AutoCAD in my undergraduate curriculum, I have used it in every job and internship I have had since. This has given me a strong, intuitive background in finding my way around AutoCAD for civil engineering applications.

I believe that the skills I have developed as an engineering Master's student and working as an engineering consultant will be able to help you automate work you may be doing manually, or gain insights into your data that you would not have been able to obtain without more effective analysis techniques.

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 been using AutoCAD since first learning it in undergrad, and continuously since from internships on to the present day. I often draft plans for city agencies and am very familiar with the commands that will help you find your way around the program.

GIS

My Master's thesis involved creating a land-use regression model based on GIS geospatial analysis. From this, I published several academic papers based on this analysis.

I am currently working as a civil engineering consultant and developing many maps for the Department of Environmental Protection based on data we are collecting. I am in charge of all GIS efforts in my group and am currently teaching coworkers how to use the ArcGIS.

Microsoft Excel

I have been using Excel for over 15 years at this point, including extensively throughout my engineering curriculum, my master's thesis, and professional jobs. I am highly adept at creating formulas and writing VBA macros in order to expedite repetitive tasks. I now use Excel for managing field data for a large municipal infrastructure project in NYC.

Knowledgeable Tutor

Approachable teaching method. Was very clear in explaining the steps to understanding what you can do with excel by knowing the basics. I will definitely book another session with William.
