About Adam

Born and raised in Illinois, I have been in Texas for almost a year now. After studying architecture and getting to work in the commercial realm for 3 years up in Illinois, my wife and I moved down here to try something new last summer. I ended up working in the custom home realm as a designer for 9 months before starting my current job in the educational realm. I have been using Revit since 2008 and AutoCAD since 2007.

Growing up I was also a big band geek. It was in 5th grade I picked up my Alto sax for the first time and ended up playing that through my freshman year of college. Then come my senior year of college I picked up and learned how to play the clarinet for a semester. I have also had the opportunity to try the baritone sax as well as a baritone during my high school years (a few weeks of experimenting).

I have been using Revit every year and every version since 2008. I have done architectural drafting and civil drafting in AutoCAD, while not nearly as often as Revit, since 2007. Math and science were nearly daily activities throughout my education. Originally I was wanting to be an engineer but as I ended up finding a Masters program in Architecture that let me study Structural Engineering as well, it was the best of both worlds.

As mentioned above, I am working in the educational realm now. My office is near the bee caves area. So I could have evenings free (leaving there around 6:30 to avoid most of rush hour) as well as most of my weekends. Feel free to get in touch and see if I could assist you to learn more about Revit, AutoCAD, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 or how to play an Alto Saxophone!

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.

Algebra 1

Similar to my prealgebra qualifications, I have ended up learning a lot of math in the years building up (in the engineering courses as well as the core requirements) to getting my Masters degree in Architecture. Algebra of some level was used almost daily, for homework, for tests or for setting up the equations in Excel to solve more complicated problems. It also provided the foundation for all of the other math related courses I ended up taking. Even now in Architectural realm, some basic Algebra comes up when laying out programs and checking code requirements.

I enjoy helping others learn to appreciate what all math has to offer, most of those times being when I was helping out classmates with new topics or when studying for an exam.

AutoCAD

I have a few years of CAD experience professionally (civil engineering summer jobs and a bit architectural when with my Illinois company). While it was not the program of choice, I did use it throughout school as well to work with civil, site and landscape files.

Prealgebra

After getting my Master's in Architecture with a focus on Structural Engineering, I have ended up learning a lot of math in the years building up (in the engineering courses as well as the core requirements). Algebra of some level was used almost daily, whether it was on homework, for tests or for setting up the equations in Excel to solve more complicated problems. It provided the foundation for all of the other math related courses I ended up taking. Even now in Architectural realm, some basic Algebra comes up when laying out programs and checking code requirements.

Revit

I have been around Revit for years (links to example work). The 4 years I have had the chance to work in the architecture industry I have been using Revit professionally, for documentation and renderings. During my 6 years of college at University of Illinois, I used it for 4.5 years (we were the first class to learn it in the Spring of 2008).

While i have not exactly tutored someone in Revit, I enjoy learning new things about it and helping out coworkers if they ever have questions.

Saxophone

While my current saxophone might need to get new pads and some other maintenance, it has served me well since I first got it in 1998. From 1998-2002, I was in a grade school band in Peoria, Illinois. From 2002-2006, I was in a high school marching/pep/concert band with Peoria Notre Dame. In the 2006-2007 school year at college, I was in the beginner band (as I could not dedicate as much time due to courses). In the spring of 2010, I picked up clarinet for the beginner college band due to losing the embochure required to play the harder reeds I obtained my senior year of high school.

Adam is the Best Revit Tutor!

Adam is an extremely knowledgeable and patient tutor. He is very well versed in Revit, but also in Architecture. He taught me so much about Revit today, but also helped me problem solve on some issues I was having. I hired him to help me with a specific project, but he provided a much more comprehensive lesson. I would recommend him to anyone just starting out in Revit or even if you need to e
