“I will teach you how to think like a computer user and be independant.

As your teacher,
         I’m not successful until you are.”


“If a willing student does not learn, the fault is not the student’s, but the teacher’s.”
           ~Chinese Proverb


Shown above is my graduation in Computer Science from Western University in my mid-40's.  As a computer guy, as an educator, and trainer, now in my mid-50s, I love getting up and out every day to help others like you gain the skills I have such contagious passion for passing forward.

My “street credentials” includes tech support/training/websites at or for:

Seniors, Special Needs Learners, Law Firms and Small Businesses Throughout The GTA and Mississauga.

After 16 years of changing lives all over the GTA and Mississauga, I have now opened (while still providing great service to my clients in Toronto) a new, second location in London, Ontario where my wife and I grew up and met, and where we still have family. So, welcome all in London, to Best 4 Beginners!

     Learning Can Be Fun And Simple!

In a world where technology has no finish line, I have always been and am a “life-long learning evangelist” and I know how to make learning fun and simple.

I have helped hundreds of people with their computer training needs, and I know I can help you too. With 20 years of Customer Service on the front line of public service , 12 years of post-secondary education including business, law school, logic, philosophy, Computer Science, and multiple Certification courses, I have learned how to be patient and thorough with students. I have been teaching others, literally, since the age of 16,  and later as a  logic tutor to fellow computer science students at the University I attended.

"Peter is one of the best computer guys I've ever encountered. He took time for an in-depth orientation, to get to know me, my strengths, my weaknesses, goals, and requirements.  He explained what he could and could not do. He tailored the way he taught me according to my absorption pattern.  He monitors progress from the customer's point of view.  He is personable, the kind of friendly, thoughtful, "real" person you like to be around.  It's easy to begin to think of Peter as a friend as well as a teacher and problem solver. And he follows up.  Based on my experience - and I'm a guy of 74 who owned his own directory publishing business for 25 years and is now engaged in research as an author - Peter is a good bet for anyone looking to improve their computer and internet productivity, and enjoy the process.  As far as I'm concerned, Peter is outstanding in his field."
Barrie Zwicker, Author, Towers Of Deception

"I learned more from you in 2 hours than I did in the last 2 years!”
Linda Chamberlain, Author and Activist (this is the inscription inside the copy of her wonderful auto-biography presented to Pete at the end of her first lesson with Best 4 Begnners)
