Semi-Retired Mechancial Engineer BSME, MSME, PE
I am a semi-retired mechanical engineer specializing in finite element analysis simulation and applied mathematics to solve engineering problems for over 35 years. I have the ability to mentor, explain and break complex problems down to the basic principals for others. I have taught evening FEA engineering courses at UW-Extension college and UWM for eight years. In retirement, one of my goals is to teach or tutor students in mathematics, physics, and engineering from an applied prospective....
I am a semi-retired mechanical engineer specializing in finite element analysis simulation and applied mathematics to solve engineering problems for over 35 years. I have the ability to mentor, explain and break complex problems down to the basic principals for others. I have taught evening FEA engineering courses at UW-Extension college and UWM for eight years. In retirement, one of my goals is to teach or tutor students in mathematics, physics, and engineering from an applied prospective. In the past I have volunteered in engineering day projects for high school students and served as a judge for Science Olympiad Wright Flyer events for high school students at the U of I.
As a practicing analytical Mechanical Engineer, I have be applying mathematics and physics to solve a wide variety of engineering problems. I have to ability to break complex problems down to the basic principals and explain to others in a more simple form. I have had extensive advanced math courses as part of my BS and MS degree programs in mechanical engineering.
As a practicing Mechanical Engineer I have be applying physics to solve engineering problems in the areas of mechanics, heat transfer, electrical, vibrations, electrostatics, magnetics, and strength of materials, Based on my experience I can bring the practical prospective of how mathematics and physics principals are applied by engineers and scientists to solve real world problems.
I am looking forward to sharing my engineering background by mentoring students in the areas of mathematics, physics and or engineering.
Experienced and Knowledgeable
I had two sessions with Jeff in the subject of Heat Transfer and am very satisfied. I came into this feeling afraid and confused and now I feel confident and clear headed. He broke down the material in a way that was easy to understand and shared about the relevance of the material in real life applications because he worked in the industry for 40+ years. This made it way more interesting to learn.Brandon, 2 lessons with Jeff
Knowledgeable and Experienced Tutor
We went over several topics in Finite Element Analysis already. Jeff has excellent theoretical foundation and practical experience in this field. He also has long experience in structural analysis.Mohamed, 3 lessons with Jeff
Very knowledgeable and patient
We worked on Strength of Materials and he went through the problems step by step. I would highly recommend him for tutoring lessons to classmates. I plan on continuing my lessons with him.Monica, 14 lessons with Jeff
Extremely helpful and knowledgeable tutor.
Jeff has been working with me for several months in order to study for my FE exam and has been very helpful while reviewing material with me. The amount of time and dedication he puts into his lessons shows through the entire session with Jeff. He doesn't just show you how to do the problems but makes sure you are engaged in solving the problem and understand why and what you are applying to solve the problem at hand. I would recommend Jeff to any student of engineering.John, 23 lessons with Jeff
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Jeff taught me how to calculate deflections on beams using the virtual work method. My teacher made it so complicated that I was really confused. But Jeff patiently explained me the material he was able to figure out the cause of my lack of understanding of the method. I felt that he knows his stuff and has experience helping students to be successful in their structural classes. I will definitely have more lessons with Jeff in the future.Esther, 5 lessons with Jeff
Jeff is a very nice and knowledgeable tutor. I look forward to working with him again.Kevin, 2 lessons with Jeff
Patient, effective teacher
Jeff has been working with my son for the last few months. My son’s grade in math has improved dramatically and he is now interested and enjoying math again. Thank you, Jeff!Stephanie, 22 lessons with Jeff
Jeff is always there when you need him and really makes time for his students! I would definitely recommend him if you need extra support frequently.Kelsey, 4 lessons with Jeff
Jeff Is The Best !!
We were lucky to find Jeff. He is patient and is able to break down the Algebra 2 material in a way my son is able to understand. He is very kind , flexible and goes the extra mile. He has made him more confident and we are already seeing amazing progress in the few weeks Jeff has worked with him. Jeff knows his stuff and he will help your student know it too!!Andrea, 19 lessons with Jeff
