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...

Jeff helped me with Finite Element Analysis for about 5 sessions this past semester. He was very knowledgeable about the subject and really helped me understand it a lot better on a conceptual level as well as an analytical level, using matrices to solve the problems. He also helped me extensively on my semester project on the program FEMAP/NASTRAN by showing me alternate ways to solve the problem and working through troubleshooting how to create the model on the program using an example from another software he was familiar with. I went from not doing well on the midterm before tutoring, to earning an A on the final exam with his help and guidance throughout the rest of the semester. I definitely recommend him if anyone needs help with this course, it most definitely paid off

I have previously worked with Jeff and have started reviewing with him again. As before he is very thorough and knowledgeable. Jeff is very informative when going through problems. Jeff also takes the time to explain how functions are derived and how to apply the functions which is very helpful in understanding the work being done.

Jeff is a great teacher for the the FE exam, mathematics Economics and mechanics of materials, he explained these subjects in great detail, and took them time to explain the underlaying theory, whenever i had a problem with solving some problems. He has many years of practical experience, which makes him a great in explaining the importance of different equations in practice. I have passed the FE exam in 2020 with Jeff's help.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Jeff is a very nice and knowledgeable tutor. I look forward to working with him again.

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!

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.

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!!
