About Thomas

I'm Tom. I've been troubleshooting/building/repairing computers for over 15 years. Recently I have extended my help from just family and friends to my coworkers. I encourage learning and efficiency. It makes me feel great knowing I helped someone use a computer to make their day easier or to enjoy/discover interests.

At my current job I work with a lot of retired men and women (mainly doing side work to get out of the house), most of which have avoided computers and cell phones for as long as they could (usually out of necessity or they were intimidated/overwhelmed by new technologies). I have personally sat down with over 2 dozen seniors and got them through problems or taught them new things to help with their tech experience. I feel I can help anyone with the information I have, but I currently specialize in helping people who aren't familiar with computers at all and those that need someone to understand that.

I am able present things in a variety of ways, to help people with little or no experience.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Microsoft Windows

I have used and seen the progressions of Windows Xp->Vista->7->8->8.1->10. I possess knowledge of hardware and software relationships between the operating systems. This is the OS I used for school work, game design, picture and video editing, websites, and countless other programs. I've done troubleshooting and helped others solve issues via online chat, phone, and in person.

Typing/keyboard

Excellent tutoring session. Tutor very knowledgeable and friendly, has a very positive attitude and made me feel at ease. I highly recommend him. I am looking forward to the next session.
