Hi !

I'm a young professional who works a desk job during the day but my passion is cars. I never grew up with family who taught me how to wrench, but I have a big desire to learn. So far I've been teaching myself on youtube, but I would love to hire a tutor/mentor to help me through projects. I'm passionate about increasing my mechanical ability and am looking for the help of someone with more experience.
Job requirements:
-Strong mechanical skills
-Willingness to teach
-Able to come to my place Arlington
I envision this as a job once a week (on a Saturday or Sunday morning/afternoon) where you would come out for a few hours and we would do minor projects together. I'm really looking for a teacher who can walk me through the jobs step-by-step so I can improve my own abilities and keep my older cars running great!

I have a large enough set of tools that should be sufficient for the things I'm looking to do, so you wouldn't have to bring or use your own tools unless you wanted to. Below is a list of things I have taught myself to do, and things I would like help with, to give you an idea of my skill level:
-Oil change
-Replace spark plugs
-Replace brake rotors/pads
-Basic wiring/splicing

Upcoming projects I would like to learn with you:
-Bleeding brakes
-Replace clutch slave cyl and master cyl
-Replace fuel filter
-Replace post-cat O2 sensor
-Diagnose some minor issues

If you are interested, let me know what your hourly rate is and I'll get back to you ASAP. Let me know if you have any questions.
