My mission is to teach adults over age 50 how to use their technologies to keep them better connected with their friends and family, and therefore healthier, happier, and safer. I have a passion for helping people stay connected with their friends, family, and the world.
The invention of many technologies has caught many adults off-guard. For example, what used to be a simple phone call for everyone is now replaced with the Smartphone. With little or no quality Smartphone training available, many older adults are cut-off from society leaving them isolated like never before. Their isolation leads to depression and declining health.
For a few years I’ve been hearing the frustrations of older adults that they don’t know how to use their Smartphones and there is no formal education. Oh, sometimes their adult children will try to help for awhile, however they lead busy lives and sometimes don’t have the time or the patience to teach Mom/Dad how to use some of the modern technologies. Many of these adult children grew-up using these technologies. Sometimes the grandchildren try to be helpful as they whiz through showing Grandma/Grandpa how to use it!
Over the past 30 years I have trained thousands of adults how to use various software packages. I hold a B.S. in Education from Illinois State University and a Masters in Adult Education from the University of Illinois. My expertise includes Adult Development and Aging, and I’m an advocate of “life-long learning”. As a educational consultant I offer customized, private tutoring and small group class to adults “over 50” in Central Illinois on how to use their Smartphones, computers, and other technologies.
