Valentina is a wonderful teacher. She is dedicated, concise and driven. She creates a very friendly atmosphere of learning and is available to answer any questions. She assisted me with pronunciation, conjugations and knowledge to learn the aspects of Italian as a beginner. Bravo !!

Sumit was very knowledgeable about the subject. He is an easygoing person, flexible, very respectful and professional. Reach out to him if you have any concerns or want to learn more about SolidWorks and/ or AutoCAD. He also can provide the necessary help in a big verity of subjects. I highly recommend him if you want to work with a skilled and nice person too.

Sumit is a great trainer, really helped me understand my coursework and transparent of the building procedures! Has excellent communication skills where you can clearly understand the programs remotely.

Definitely would recommend to anyone who needs help!
Jeanine Hegwood
Mr. Sumit A. is one of the most humblest and outstanding teachers on the planet. His intellectual IQ is extraordinary and his fast and fresh teaching method is second to none. I struggled with a 20 year learning curve, after deciding to go back to school as an adult to continue my educational pursuits.

Mr. Summit has helped me push through hard to understand CAD components such as CAD Math and CAD Mechanical Drawing Components. Since our tutoring sessions have been so effective. I have an A in all of my courses! Mr. Summit has kept me ahead of the curve...he has also helped me overcome some effects of a slight learning disability and handicap. I recommend him to anyone. He can teach knowledge and wisdom to a tall giraffe... or he can teach knowledge and wisdom to a tiny sheep. Mr. Sumit is one of the world’s best instructors. His knowledge base is elite.

"I had no idea how lucky I would be to find Pedro. I am an interior designer learning Autocad and having no prior experience with the program, Pedro made it totally accessible. He is a phenomenal teacher and is so kind and patient. He provides foundational rules at the beginning of each session and has clear goals mapped out for every step of the way. We have done a number of exercises that I did not think would be possible for me to accomplish at this point. I am so grateful to have found him and highly recommend him!!!!!"

Private AutoCAD Lessons Near You

First released by Autodesk in 1982, AutoCAD has become the leading computer-aided design (CAD) software. Today, the software's available for use on Windows, Mac, and even offers a free downloadable student version. It's used abundantly across design, engineering, architectures, and other industries. The software allows users to create highly detailed illustrations of design specifications in two-dimensional and three-dimensional planes. 

Compared to drafting blueprints by hand, AutoCAD's features and capabilities ease the creation, accuracy, multiplication, and revision of these detailed drawings. AutoCAD's applications range from the simple generation of charts and graphs for presentations to complex projects like rendering the entire plans for the construction of a skyscraper.

...

Used in industries as diverse as engineering, robotics, fashion, architecture, and city planning, learning how to use AutoCAD opens up a plethora of opportunities for kids and adults, alike. 

Why Learn How to Use AutoCAD?

The primary reason to learn AutoCAD is to open up professional opportunities. AutoCAD is the most popular and widely used computer-aided design software. Knowing the ins and outs of it will boost your resume and secure your future with plenty of work. AutoCAD experts have opportunities to get hired by major companies, to provide freelance design work, and to teach others. 

AutoCAD is essential to the function of a variety of professionals who work in different industries. This includes all types of engineers, architects, construction project managers, city planners, graphic designers, automobile designers, aeronautical design, interior designers, set designers, product developers, inventors, and more. Anyone with a need or desire to participate in 3D printing also needs a thorough knowledge of AutoCAD. If you love both science and creative design, then learning AutoCAD will allow you to work with both your creative and your practical side every day. 

The Best Way to Learn AutoCAD and What You'll Study in Classes

Although it's easy to find free AutoCAD lessons and tutorials online, the best way to learn the software is with a private AutoCAD tutor. In private lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention and personalized instruction that simply isn't possible when learning in a larger class setting or when watching online videos. You'll receive immediate feedback and overcome challenges quickly. 

No two private lessons are alike. Private teachers customize each lesson to meet the student's needs. For example, AutoCAD classes for children differ from AutoCAD lessons for adults in terms of teaching style, course content, and methods. In private lessons, you'll stay motivated and interested, while you learn at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner AutoCAD

If you have little or no previous experience using AutoCAD software, then beginner's lessons are right for you. In these lessons, your teacher will introduce you to all the basics of your AutoCAD software. After beginner lessons, you should be able to navigate the software and create some basic drawings. Your tutor might cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to software navigation, features, and tools
  • Basic AutoCAD terminology and screen
  • Input points, using the x-y coordinate system
  • 2D drawing and introduction to modifying commands
  • Orthographic projection

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate AutoCAD

If you're comfortable with basic commands and drawing in AutoCAD, but want to expand your abilities, then intermediate lessons are for you. You'll learn to handle more complex drawings, plans, and designs, as you challenge yourself to use new tools and commands. Your AutoCAD teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Project planning
  • Designing and inserting blocks
  • Working with non-graphical information
  • Hatching and working with text
  • Creating and mapping materials

Sample Curriculum for Advanced AutoCAD

If you're pretty well-versed in AutoCAD, but feel your command of the software could use some polishing for professional use, then advanced courses are right for you. In these classes, you'll have the opportunity to work with others who use AutoCAD professionally on a daily basis. You'll perfect your designs and flesh-out their contents. Topics covered in advanced courses depend greatly on the student's goals and interests, but your teacher might cover the following:

  • Master 3D drawing
  • Linetypes, scales, and system variables
  • Rendering and lighting
  • AutoCAD animation
  • Work toward AutoCAD certification

How to Find an AutoCAD Teacher Near You

If you're ready to start learning AutoCAD properly, then it's time to find a teacher. Finding an AutoCAD tutor on TakeLessons is easy! With a quick search, you'll find a variety of teachers who offer lessons both online and in-person. Before choosing the teacher who's right for you, we recommend reading several teacher profiles and reviews left by other students.

Most instructors charge rates based on the length and frequency of lessons, but the price of AutoCAD classes varies. With so many tutors to choose from, you shouldn't have a problem finding one who can work with your schedule and your budget. Investing in private lessons will pay off fast, as you find your understanding and command of the software improves after your very first lesson!
