Hi, I’m Lucas Roberts. I teach self-proclaimed old dogs new tricks.
I help Mac people have a better life, be more productive, and stop wasting time googling, coping, and feeling tech-ashamed.
You’re busy, people rely on you, and you’re being dragged – perhaps kicking and screaming – into a technological world. You tell people you’re an old dog and you can’t learn new tricks. You were enthusiastically sold on the idea that your Mac and your iPhone are simple, easy, and intuitive – but that has not been your experience. Yet.
I get it.
I’ve been teaching Mac, iPhone, and cloud fundamentals to intelligent and successful technophobes, Luddites, and “digital immigrants” for over two decades. My clients’ lives are dramatically improved once I teach them some basics to become efficient and comfortable with their technology. They achieve their goals faster and have more free time for the important things in life.
I love my work and would love to help you!
Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path, and leave a trail.– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Not in Vancouver? Not a problem. Wherever you are in the world I can “sit next to you” facing your Mac, solve problems, and help you better understand every digital tool you need to create the lifestyle you want – with the power of screen sharing and creative video conferencing techniques.
No need to feel bad or judged about an area of low skill or a sorely neglected Desktop. I will quickly reassure you that while Apple technology and tutoring are strengths of mine, accounting and cooking are crippling weaknesses. It’s also normal to feel nervous about the cloud, and for your photos to be total chaos. [more]
New Mac Setup
When you get a new Mac, it’s not always the best move to just copy everything as it is from the previous Mac to the new one; I’ll copy only what you need and care about and we’ll leave behind the old apps, dust, and cobwebs. Best of all, I’ll set up the new one to look beautiful, simple, and efficient in ways you didn’t know were possible.
Science tells us that humans need food, water, and air to survive. Maybe even love. I believe Mac users have similar basic needs; blazing fast Wifi, ample storage, reliable email, trustworthy syncing, automatic and “off-the-mind” backup, and more – with the skills and habits to keep things organized. Maybe even a patient, compassionate tutor.
