About Jason

Nothing in life goes without our sophisticated computers anymore! However, not everyone grew up mastering a computer at age four, writing their own programs or apps at age eight, and go on to become a software engineer. Even after owning a computer for several years, many adults still find it challenging to use the different programs quickly and efficiently ... especially with the constant changes that software programs seem to undergo.

I have been helping people learn to use their computers since 1985, and have always been the go-to-guy for friends and family. I can teach you how to use your computers and devices and how to successfully repair files, create, edit, or give the finishing touches to work projects, personal projects, or school projects.

Are you an adult who feels overwhelmed by the tasks of creating projects on your laptop or personal computer, or maximizing the use of your iPhone or iPad? Then I am your Go-to-guy!

I am patient, and we go at your learning pace, as fast or slow as you want, and you will not feel overwhelmed. Naturally it takes a few times practicing the usage of a program or an app before you feel confident with it, and I am available to help you. I enjoy teaching people about their computers and it gives me joy to see them master the tasks.

Organized Approach to Teaching — I am very impressed with his teaching style. Many tutors have sound knowledge of their field; however, not all have the ability to transfer that knowledge to their students.
