Point Park University (Mechanical Eng.)
I recently retired from the Engineering business which was my career for 40 years. I always worked in the Pittsburgh area. I have worked for various Engineering companies designing various products. Most of my experience is in the water treatment business and the nuclear power industry.
I have worked in the past in the education field, teaching at Technical schools, and have done in house on the job training at some of the engineering companies I worked at. I also raised four children, whom I helped tutor through school. All of them have went on to earn masters degrees and are working at prominent jobs.
I have consistently used geometry in my engineering design work over the course of my 40 year career in the engineering business.
I have continually used Autodesk's AutoCAD an Inventor computer programs in my engineering design work for the past 25 years, and I consider myself an expert in using these programs. I have also taught these design programs in education institutions.
I am committed to helping people learn math and engineering subjects better and improve their skills, so they can perform better in the future, in the career they chose. Engineering corporations are always looking for smart people with good math and engineering skills, as this is a challenging and demanding field of work.

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 took my first AutoCAD course in 1990. Since then I have continually worked in the engineering field making 2-D designs and drawings of engineering products including components and assemblies. In 2000 I started using Autodesk's Inventor program in which I started doing 3-D designing of mechanical components such as parts and assemblies. I have also taught these subjects in technical schools in the Pittsburgh area and am considered and expert in the subject as I now work for a Engineering corporation that employs me as the Acad administrator.
I am employed in the mechanical engineering business. I consistently use algebra and geometry in my daily work. I use geometry when I construct 3-D models using various computer modeling programs. I then develop mechanical drawings from the 3-D models I engineer. I have always have been good at understanding geometry.
