Since becoming an IT Tutor in 2005 I have taught beginners and experienced users many things from basic mouse skills to advanced image editing using Photoshop.

Daytime, evening and weekends for my local area.
By special arrangement for the Isle of Wight.
I live in Bromley, Kent but my family comes from the Isle of Wight where I still spend some time.
My career in computers started in 1977, working on large IBM systems mainly as a freelance programmer and tester. During that time I worked for a number of well known companies including Esso, Sainsbury’s and London Electricity and had the opportunity of working overseas in Saudi Arabia, Australia and The Netherlands.
I left the large corporations behind in 1999 and started teaching myself web skills. The first web site I built was for the Vectis Astronomical Society.
From this small step into the world of the Internet, I now work from home providing office IT support and web development services to small local businesses. I also work with my local photographic shop where I offer an image recovery service to customers who have accidentally erased or lost pictures from their digital cameras.
Why did I join Digital Unite?
I enjoy helping people to get the most out of their computers, to pursue their hobbies and interests and make their lives easier in all kinds of ways. Working with someone on a one-to-one basis and helping them solve problems is very rewarding.
