“I write to heartily recommend his teaching and instructional ability. Being a computer illiterate and a recent convert to Apple.”

“I really enjoyed MAC 101, learned a lot. Gave me a lot more confidence since there is a bit of a learning curve switching from a PC to a MAC. 
Thank you!!”

“I have no hesitation in recommending both the Simply Computing Store and the 
qualities of Mr. Giles as both have been exemplary.”
