Classes

What we do:

We provide interactive and engaging classes about Apple technology. Classes are presented in plain English, not jargon. We are dedicated to enhancing your knowledge by offering single-session classes and multi-session series. Our series classes are usually 3-4 sessions offered every other week. The time between classes gives participants time to practice what they learn and to return to the next session with questions. All classes are customized to meet the needs of your group.

Possible topics and past classes have included:

Multi-session classes:

    • Intro to your Mac
    • Intro to iWork
    • Optimizing your Email
    • Getting the most out of iPhoto
    • Getting to know your iPad

How we do it:

Where – We believe people learn best when they are comfortable, so we come to your location to provide the training. We bring a computer, a projector, and our expertise. You bring electricity, a white wall or screen, and wifi.

When – We schedule anything from a single-session on-demand class to setting up a quarterly schedule of class series for on-going training.

Class size – We require a minimum of 8 students pre-registered at least two weeks prior to the start of the first class.  We allow a maximum of 24 students in any class, to ensure the best possible learning experience. When there are more than 12 students, both Tim and Ericka are in the classroom.

Pricing – Students pay for the entire series of classes at the beginning of the first session. Classes are $15 per person per session. For example, a 4-class series would be $60, payable on the first day of class.

He relishes the challenge of a complex problem, yet equally enjoys teaching novice users about application features and keyboard shortcuts that enhance their productivity and efficiency.

ErickaEricka worked at Apple for 6 years, and is a rockstar in training beginning and intermediate users on Mac, iPhone, iPad, and iPod. She has been an independent Apple trainer for 4 years.

You can more information about Tim and Ericka on our About page.

Tim came recommended by one of my clients. She has worked with him for years. Unlike me, she’s a bit computer shy. But when it came time for me to update/overhaul/tune-up my Mac Pro (the honkin big guy) I couldn’t get my head around hauling it in to the Apple store and leaving it with them to tell me what I was pretty sure I already knew. Enter TIM! He did a full diagnostic remotely (he’s in the NW, I’m in Texas) while I was on the phone with him. He came to the conclusion that I expected…I needed more memory. But he also showed and assured me that everything else was working just fine! I was pretty sure I could install the memory, which I did. His services were a learning experience that I value, and it cost me, at the most, one third of what I would have paid at the Mac store. I couldn’t ask for more. Plus I get his follow up newsletter with great tips for do-it-yourselfers like me.

I highly recommend Tim’s services.
