Tune up your computer


35 per session

Computer running slow? Let me tune it up! I will meet with you to identify what is making it run slowly and provide some ways to speed it up.

The solution will depend on the situation so in some cases it may be that a few parts need replacing or that you just can't keep up with modern operating systems, in which case I can advise you on what to buy. However, in most cases it will simply be a matter of using a few tools your computer already has to clean up, speed up, and tune up for maximum speed! Just like cars, computers decay from constant use. Let me be the one to give it the care that it needs.

Windows only. Sorry Mac users!

Training & Qualifications

My father works in IT and taught me everything I know. I've been using computers all my life and--living on a tight budget--have learned how to milk them for the most they can offer. I also studied computer science in college and am an excellent quantitative thinker and problem solver.

Availability & Preferences

Evenings, weekends

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!
