About Adam


Bio

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...

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!

Subjects

Computer

AutoCAD,

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.
Revit

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.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

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.
Physics,

Physics

When I was first introduced to Physics in high school i instantly enjoyed the real life applications as well as the puzzles that came with it. Because of this I was on the fence between going into engineering and architecture, in the end chose architecture. But throughout my college education I did get to further study physics when used in the analysis of structures (both static and dynamic). While now that I am out in the architecture realm I no longer get to analyze structures I do still enjoy the problem solving that physics has to offer. And as I did have only two true physics classes throughout my education (a year in high school and a semester in college) I am probably not the best for assisting with electricity or atomic. But if it is mechanics, thermal, periodic motion or optics, I would enjoy the opportunity to help others if you are willing to give me a chance.

Music

Saxophone

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. From 2002-2006, I was in a high school marching/pep/concert band. 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.

Excellent info!

Adam taught me complex things I never learned in class. THANKS!

Aaron, 1 lesson with Adam

Very patient and knowledgeable.

Adam has really helped me this semester with Revit. He’s patient and takes the time to figure out best and efficient methods.

Stephanie, 2 lessons with Adam

understanding and Smart teacher

Very clear, very helpful. He taught me many things and gave me the smart ways to deal with revit. I would recommend him.

Abdulaziz, 2 lessons with Adam

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 expand you knowledge about this fantastic program!
