About JOSEPH

I am here to offer my services to those of you looking for assistance with your MS Office, Windows, or Mac/iOS software, whether that is troubleshooting, helping you with the basics, getting you more comfortable, or making you more productive so the programs become the tools they're supposed to be - not the mysteries or obstacles they may currently be.

I started as a trainer with CompUSA, where I got my basic computer training with a mentor who went on to work with Underwriters Laboratories, and have worked since 1999 teaching classes for the City of Chicago Department of Aging and Family Services.

That has expanded to one-on-one computer consulting, working with older students with a range of experience from retirees who helped start the computer industry to people who literally never touched a mouse until coming to see me. Through the years I have become adept at using and showing students how to use programs on PCs and Macs, and you will find me to be attentive, honest, patient, and attuned to your needs. I have extensive experience teaching and using all MS Office and AppleWorks packages, and can even help you use your smart phone and tablet with your work.

In addition to my computer experience, I am an experienced (and awarded) college-level instructor with over 25 years experience as an adjunct English instructor at Roosevelt University, and as an adjunct Speech instructor at Columbia College Chicago. So while we work on that PowerPoint or Word issue, you may also get a note or two about what you're writing or how to make the presentation look better overall.

I can help and am ready to do so. Let's work.
