Do you have a computer problem? Please give me a call...
My name is Tom. I'm a freelance computer tutor, programmer and fixer of things that beep. And even some that don't.
I can help you with Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android issues.
I'm local - if you live in and around North Norfolk, but I do travel a radius of about 20 miles of Swanton Morley. (So that includes as far south as Banham, as far east as Bircham Newton, north up to Wells and west out to Hoveton), so quite an area really.
I charge £30 per hour if I'm fixing computers or giving tuition. If it's website design and coding you require, this is more tailored to you so has to be costed depending on your requirements.
What else do I do? Here are a few examples. This can be about installing updates, letting you know about software problems that have been discovered, and best practices to prevent you being a target of online fraud.
Basic computer skills
- Use your computer confidently
- Organising files on your computer
- How to sort through and order your photos
- Setting up a new or existing email address
- Sync your email between mobile, computer, or tablet
- Managing junk email, or moving email between email accounts
- Make a complete offline copy of all your emails
Managing your data
- Storing and retrieving items from the cloud
- Backing up your files
- Securely obfuscate, erase and re-wipe your computer
- Recover files after a system failure
- How to synchronise your various bits of technology
- Managing and securely storing your passwords

- App design and concept (iOS / Android / Mac / Windows / Linux)
Upgrading your computer
- Computer Hardware upgrades
- Setting up a new computer
- Software upgrades (What upgrades will fix and what they will break)
- Clone your old computer to a new one
- Safe disposal of your old computer
- Personal computer tuition in your own home
- Printing problems / fault finding
- Computer startup problems
- Incompatible software and possible workarounds
- Outdated, or non functioning software and alternatives
There are many more aspects that I can help you with, so this is just a small example of what I do.
In fact, if there is something wrong with your technology don't feel you have to put up with it.
I go to a huge variety of people, of all ages and of all walks of life. It's never too late to learn something new - there's new things happening each and every week. That's not to say you need to know it all. As long as you can achieve what you want with your computer equipment, that's mission accomplished. If you choose to expand on it and take it further, that's absolutely great. This no pressure approach is what I try to provide.
