I have 18 years experience teaching people to use technology effectively, and have been a Mac user since 1984. I love helping people use technology to get more done in less time and with less work.
I can show you how to get the most out of your investment
in Apple products & master using your Mac, iPhone, and iPad. I also specialize in technology troubleshooting and support, so if you want, I'll teach you how to avoid or fix many common issues -- I'd like to see you grow independent from me over time. Here are some lessons I offer:
Mac Basics - New to Mac? Learn the vocabulary
and get oriented to the Finder, the Dock, the Spotlight menu, Mission Control and Spaces. Figure out if you’re running out of RAM or disk space. Discover key combinations and gestures that save you time.
iPhone/iPad Basics - New to iOS? Learn to find, install, and organize apps. Master multitasking, explore the Control Center, get to know Siri. Use iCloud to store and sync your most important information across all your Apple devices.
Backups - Do you care about the files and photos on your computer
? We’ll set up a rock-solid backup strategy so that you can recover your data, no matter what disaster strikes.
Passwords - Have you ever forgotten a password? Use a password manager to create strong passwords, sync them to all your devices, and automatically log in to your accounts.
iPhoto - Do you have thousands of photos and no way to organize them? Manage all your photos in one place. Organize them using events, faces, and places. Choose your favorite photos and edit them to look their best.
iMovie - Do you shoot video with your iPhone or iPad? Learn to import clips into iMovie and produce a high-definition movie to share with family and friends.
Pages & Numbers - Learn to use Apple’s productivity tools to create beautiful documents and spreadsheets. Open and edit Word and Excel
files without installing Microsoft Office.Email
