Improving Computer and Tablet Skills of Adults in Aiken
We can teach you to use your computer, regardless of your experience level, in a relaxed manner tailored to adults. We are here to help you improve your computer skills. If you have never used a computer, we will get you started with our beginning courses. If you know the basics and want to refine your skills, we will help you with our advanced courses. For more information, contact us.

- Should McGrath Teach Mac Computers?. We are considering offering courses in using a Mac computer (we already teach courses for iPad and iPhone). Initially the Mac courses would be demonstrations, with the option of bringing your Mac laptop to the class and doing the exercises with your computer. You can help us decide by completing a short, online survey.
- Windows 10. All of our desktop courses are taught on computers running Windows 10. For our courses taught with a specific application, such as Microsoft Word 2013 or Microsoft Excel 2013, the course is the same under Windows 7, 8.1, or 10.
