What People Are Saying

  • I just wanted to say thank you for going over and beyond to help us out in the class. You teaching the material and your explanations actually made the exam EASY! Without saying too much about the exam, let’s just say your seismic concrete design handouts were very beneficial. But not only did taking your class help with the exam, it made me a better structural engineer. So regardless if I pass or not, thank you!
