"I'd never heard of Joel before answering his ad online, and didn't know what to expect. I was impressed that he responded quickly to my call. He arrived when he said he would, and he was totally concentrated on my computer questions. He is clearly knowledgeable, extremely helpful, and most of all - for me - patient! He is generous with his knowledge of all computers, and encourages me to contact him whenever I can't understand a computer related issue. He was able to answer all my questions, and usually expanded on his answers, leaving me much more knowledge than I had before he gave his help. I feel that I have found an honest, principled expert who actually wants to 'fix the problem'. My husband and I count ourselves fortunate to have found Joel, and we intend to stay in touch with him for computer help. In our opinion, he's 'one-in-a-million'."
- Grace J.
Oakland, CA

"I found Joel online and it was a great find. Joel came to my house and stayed 3-4 hours, first helping me with my iPad in a most patient and skilled way, then helping my husband with his computer. Joel is gracious, self-effacing, generous with his time, and brilliant. I recommend him highly."
- Merla Z.

Joel succeeded in reducing my frustration with learning and I was able to learn where all computer classes had failed.

He showed me logical progression of programs but was very flexible in answering scattered questions. I give the highest recommendation for Joel."
- Pauline B.

He has so much knowledge but he is able to meet my level of language and need. I was immediately able to use what he taught me to improve my business's internet presence. I trust him and his price is affordable. I already feel more confident in this ever-changing cyber world. I highly recommend him."

- Raymond P.

"Joel helps me solve many of my computer hardware and software problems. Whenever I have trouble running applications like Excel, Quicken, Word, or problems with Windows, I call Joel. He listens to what needs to be done, gives clear explanations, and never talks down to me or my wife when dealing with technical issues. He knows quickly what questions to ask in order to focus in on what needs to be solved. Joel's sense of humor and clarity about computers and software make him a priceless ally. I highly recommend his work."

Do you or your employees need some friendly, honest, knowledgeable, and affordable
training and assistance with personal computers, mobile devices, cloud computing, or
Search Engine Optimization and Search Engine Marketing (SEO/SEM) at your home or business?

Could you use guidance with Microsoft Windows (including Windows 8), Microsoft Office, Apple iMac, MacBook, Mac OS, the Internet, email, mobile devices such as Apple iPhones, iPads, Android phones, Android tablets, Apple iCloud, Google Drive, Apple and Android mobile apps, or other cloud-based and computer-related products, devices, programs, features, and services?

Do you want your website to appear dramatically higher in search results to attract far more visitors and customers?

I'm an experienced and talented computer professional with excellent communication skills and a very patient, gentle tutoring style.

My previous employers and positions include...
  • Pacific Bell, San Francisco, CA (Personal Computer Training Coordinator)
  • Pacific Bell, Concord, CA (Computer Operations Manager)
  • County of Alameda, Oakland, CA (Information Systems Manager)
 
I help adults - as well as people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds - learn computers comfortably and confidently, at a pace that's right for them.  Although I'm a computer professional with a Computer Science degree, I don't try to impress you or overwhelm you with computer terminology and technical jargon.  I listen to your needs and speak to you in plain English, so that you can relax and realize your full potential.  Whether your goals are modest or ambitious, my purpose is to help you understand and achieve anything you'd like to accomplish with your computer or mobile device.

We meet wherever you prefer -
at your home, your place of business, my home, or any location that's convenient for you, including coffee shops, public libraries, and other spots with wireless Internet (I also bring my own Wi-Fi, so regardless of where we meet, we always have Internet access).  I'm available weekdays and weekends, including evenings.

(Click here to view my service map for the Berkeley/Oakland/San Francisco Bay Area)

Some of the areas in which I can help...
  • Understanding personal computer basics/fundamentals (Mac and PC)
  • Making the most of your mobile devices: iPhone, iPad, Android phones & tablets, including selecting, purchasing, installing, and using apps
  • Microsoft Office (Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, Word)
  • Understanding, organizing, and managing your computer's files and folders
  • Mac OS and Microsoft Windows (including Windows 8)
  • Making full use of the Internet, email (including email attachments), and search engines
  • Web browsers (Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer,Mozilla Firefox)
  • Most computer programs, applications, and utilities
  • Protecting computers from viruses, spyware, and other malicious software
  • Digital photography, including choosing and using digital cameras, as well as adjusting their settings & features appropriately for your photographic needs
  • Optimizing your photos and other graphics for printing and for the Internet (image editing)
  • Uploading your photos, videos, and other files to the Internet
  • Using social networking websites (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more)
  • VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone service (including Skype and Google Voice) on computers and mobile devices
  • Purchase advice and assistance (both new and used...choosing the right computers, software, and other devices & services for your needs and your budget)
  • Arranging your workplace for optimal support of your health and comfort (computer ergonomics)
  • Basic website design, implementation, and improvement, including simple HTML, as well as assistance choosing appropriate web authoring software, and reliable & affordable web hosting
  • Search engine optimization and search engine marketing (SEO/SEM) to dramatically improve your website's Internet presence
...this is only a partial list, so if you don't see it here, please inquire ... there's a good chance I can help!

(This paragraph applies only to Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Search Engine Marketing (SEM) for your website - if your needs do not require SEO/SEM, please skip to the next section.)  If you'd like to learn how to significantly improve your website's position in search results, I can personally show you how to do so.  Consider that I'm just one local individual with a very small marketing budget, yet by employing my own self-developed set of SEO/SEM techniques, my site dominates the top of search results, and - as a result - I have far more clients than anyone else in my field.  I can show you how to do the same for your website and your business.  If you're serious about growing your business, please feel welcome to contact me or visit my SEO/SEM website here.

My rate for everything other than SEO/SEM is $45 per hour for everything except SEO/SEM.  My rate to personally teach you my proprietary SEO/SEM techniques is $125 per hour, with a mandatory non-disclosure agreement.

All visits are scheduled by appointment only and require a 2-hour minimum.  I accept checks, cash, major credit cards, and PayPal.

I can provide exceptional local references, reviews, and recommendations attesting to the integrity of my character and the quality of my work.  (I think my clients say it best - please visit my Testimonials page or view my LinkedIn and Yelp profiles for some examples (on Yelp, be sure to also read my 'filtered' reviews).

Please feel welcome to contact me at your convenience to discuss your individual needs, or to schedule an appointment.

Thank you for your interest.  I look forward to working with you!

Sincerely,

Joel K.
