Computer Trainer specialized in teaching Seniors how to use technology in NYC. 13 years experience. All levels.

Methodology

I am a patient man. I've been teaching seniors with different levels of technical knowledge, from those that it is the first time to face a computer to those that have old computer knowledge but want to improve and update them. My methodology is based on patience and care. I want you to learn but I don't want you to enjoy while your learning. The technology gap is a big problem for seniors, they feel displaced and isolated. I guarantee that by working together, you will learn how to connect with your family and friends, share pictures and moments, make video calls, etc.

Background

I've been teaching Seniors how to use computers and overall technology for 10 years. Many students from the 3 NY boroughs now know how to use their laptops, cell phones, etc. They are now more independent, making them feel more confident. They were frustrated about using technology, but know they have their email accounts, they know how to keep their pictures safe, they can chat and stablish video conferences with relatives and friends. It is a new world that opens to them. You can also learn, no matter how old are you, I can teach you in a way that you will learn without noticing. Give it a try.
