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.

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.
Who we are:
Tim has been supporting Macs for over 20 years. Skilled in supporting all versions of the Mac operating system and every Mac model, Tim has the rare ability to explain the technical in plain English. 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.
You can more information about Tim on the About page.
Tim speaks multiple languages. He speaks Ignorant User, in which he can turn computer jargon and complicated issues into layperson’s terms and present them in a friendly, knowledgeable, and easy-to-understand way. I’ve also heard him speak Professional Computerese, when he talks to my husband, who is a network manager, or to the other computer professionals at my place of employment. He knows his Mac’s inside and out, both current and vintage models. I can count on him to provide me with the education I need in a gentle and respectful manner. And I can also count on him to give me expert information and practical advice to help me make good decisions on maintenance, upgrades, and choices in software and hardware. He’s bailed me out both at home and at work numerous times, and I know all I have to do is call, and he’s there. On top of all that, he’s a really nice guy.” Read more testimonials.
