Well...Mike's on the eastside. Thirteen students total.
Some were a bit camera shy!

Hello,

Glad you're here!

My name is Mike, and I am a computer Instructor and author. My passion has been helping 1000’s of adults and seniors learn computers in over 40 cities in 17 years. I have taught at colleges, workforce and development, community education centers, libraries, and many senior centers. I get overwhelming excellent comments about my unique style of teaching, which is basically simplistic. I try to take even the advanced things and break them down so students can understand them. My goal is for “no student to be left behind” and I try to rank extremely high in trying to fulfill that goal. Currently, I instruct students virtually from my location into their own homes! My live sessions are great for dabblers, tinkerers, and those who have recently bought a computer for personal or business use.

My book: "Help! I Have a Computer and the 8-year Old Is Too Busy This Weekend!" was birthed as a result of seeing seniors (and adults) struggle to comprehend computer basics. (The book is for Windows 10 users.)

 

Oh, yes...I've heard the stories. Let me see...It goes something like this: "I sat down with my grandchild to learn a few computer related things, and they went so fast until I couldn't keep up!" Or how about this one: "I had my secretary do all the computer related work over the years and now I am retired and I need to learn this thing!" I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard those sayings!

 

I have responded to the needs of seniors and adults by authoring this book just for you! You no longer need to rely on someone from generation X and millennials' generation  to help you with learning computer tasks! As you know they certainly know computers, but often they are not good teachers. This is where I come in! I consider myself your "tutor-in-a-book", meaning I have given thought to what seniors really need to operate their computers successfully. I think I got it: SIMPLE STEPS! My book has been tested and enjoyed by several hundreds of seniors over the years. Get a copy! Maybe get two for someone else you know.
