About James

Hey guys, I am a friendly, down to earth computer technician. I have years of experience working with and teaching people of all different backgrounds. In my previous life before being a computer technician I was a manager for a very large company and have a lot of experience with both Excel and Microsoft Office. There isn't anything that I can't explain to you in a way that will help you understand it fundamentally. I will create notes for you and write down and type out anything that we have gone over to give you a record of things that we have done.

Besides being a computer technician, and having been a manager for a large company, I was also my company's training director for over 500 employees. I developed training materials, planned exercises and courses, executed training seminars, and was very successful at raising the bar for the customer service experience. I have been teaching and developing people's skills for over a decade now and love to see the moment when something clicks for one of my students. I am especially careful to move at a pace that works for you. If you need to go over something a few times or just need a different perspective to understand it, I am patient and extremely sensitive to those needs.

I am a COMP/Tía certified computer and network technician with a customer service and corporate trainer background. I am a person with a lot of real world experience that actually works in the field. I would love to help you realize your full potential when it comes to computers.

Please feel free to message me and set up a no-pressure consult. We'll meet, go over your goals, and start where it's appropriate. I am always available should you need any help with anything else.
