Portrait of Martin

Hello, I’m Martin.

I’m a computer technician and tutor based in Oxfordshire. I help with Mac and Windows computers, iPads and other tablets, smartphones, email, printing, Wi-Fi, broadband and more.

I have a computing degree from Oxford Brookes, but more importantly I have the up-to-date knowledge and real-world experience needed to solve today’s IT problems for homes and small businesses — with hundreds of satisfied customers since 2007. My fee is £40 per hour.

To protect everyone’s health, I’m currently working remotely using screen sharing.

Philosophy

Computers have made amazing things possible and benefited humanity in ways our ancestors could hardly have imagined. But they’re often complex, and far from perfect: hardware isn’t built to last, software changes frequently, and the nature of the Internet means people face day-to-day risks that are difficult to understand. It’s my passion to help people prioritise their needs, make informed choices, and develop the right skills to get technology working for them.

Extracurricular

I’ve volunteered as editor of the Tackley Newsletter since 2006 and as production assistant for Woodstock & Bladon News since 2017. I built and manage the website of Tackley Local History Group.

My other creations include Wildflowers of Hanborough, static HTML templating system Tiny, pop quiz Beats Me, and some electronic music.

I like good coffee, cycling, music production, gardening, small dogs, and birds.
