Description

This course is going to help you understand the challenging topics of statics by a straight forward method. I don't like listening to theory for hours so I created a course which concentrates on the practical aspects of Statics.

First I always tell you just a little bit of theory. Then I show you how to solve problems in each topic, these are going to be the basic examples. Finally you are going to be able to solve problems by your own. To test yourself, I deliver sample problems in each topic for which a very detailed solution is always available. In this way you learn everything you need by just solving problems!

Don't worry about your mathematical or mechanical background! I introduce you to the basic mathematics that you need for this course. As Statics and this course is basically the foundation of any mechanical knowledge, I start from the scratch and you can discover the beauty of mechanics step by step!

As I'm mechanical engineer and I've been teaching this topic to mechanical engineers for years, this course is perfectly designed for mechanical engineers.If you are a mechanical engineer I would really encourage you to take this course and join the students that I successfully prepared for their examinations.

If you are not a mechanical engineer but a civil engineer, etc. you can still take this course. The basics of statics are the same for everyone so you are going to find useful materials for yourself. However please check the curriculum to see if everything you need is included or not. I'm willing to expand this course to serve everyone's needs so let me know your needs!

I want to provide help to everyone so you can take this course for the same price as one sitting could cost with a privite tutor! I hope to see you inside the course! Let me help you to become a great engineer!

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for freshmen mechanical engineers who want to acquire the basics of mechanics
  • This course is also for you if you are not a mechanical engineer but you need help in your Statics studies
  • This course is the starting point if you want to learn university level mechanics even just for yourself
  • You should also take this course if you forgot Statics and you are struggling with Strength of Materials or Dynamics

Welcome to my page! :)

I'm a mechanical engineer and an online entrepreneur. I'm already teaching more than 2300 students worldwide and I look forward to see you as my student, too.

Besides my engineering and mathematical profile, I'm committed to honor my Hungarian heritage by introducing Budapest and Hungary to everyone around the world. I'd love to bump into you in Budapest so I designed my Budapest courses with my engineering preciseness to give you the ultimate experience!

I've got my MSc level degree in mechanical engineering at Budapest University of Technology and Economics and I'm enthusiastic about sharing my knowledge and my love of engineering sciences.

I've been teaching and helping mechanical engineering students as a private tutor in various subjects for 3 years. Therefore I not only know how to understand a topic as a student but also how to make it understandable for others. I passed most of my subjects with an excellent mark and I hope I can help you to reach the desired mark or objective for yourself by ease, too. I offer guidance to understanding either if you are a student or if you want to refresh and widen your knowledge as an engineer in practice.

If you can trust me and follow my courses, I can take you from beginner level to be an expert of mechanics enginnering related topics. I came far on this road and I wish you great success, too!

I'm looking forward to welcome you in any of my courses! It would be so much fun and honor to me to help you worldwide :)

Üdvözöllek!

Én egy frissen végzett gépészmérnök vagyok, aki tudja, hogy miből tart elvégezni egy nehéz képzést vagy túlesni egy lehetetlennek tűnő vizsgán, ezért szeretném továbbadni neked is a tudásom! Legyen szó egyetemi szintű gépész tárgyakról vagy az érettségiről, én már megszereztem a magam ötösét és itt az ideje, hogy te is megszerezd azt a jegyet, amitől boldog leszel.

Már évek óta segítek másoknak felkészülni, ezért tudom, hogy hogy értessek meg bármilyen tananyagot is. Ezt tapasztald meg nyugodtan, minden kurzusomhoz van elérhető ingyenes bemutató rész, bátran nézd végig őket és az alapján hozz döntést!

Én nagyon remélem, hogy a sikeres diákjaim között köszönthetlek majd és együtt készülhetünk fel!
