Hello! My name is Tate Busby. I’m the Co-Owner of TechTrainer with my brother Luke. We’re both Seattle natives, best friends, Eagle Scouts, and climbing buddies. Check out this picture of us at the summit of Mt. Rainier!
We started this company with three goals in mind. We want to help people stay connected, preserve memories, and empower themselves through new skills. TechTrainer provides in-person and online technology training through multigenerational connection and personalized, intuitive instruction.
A lot of words, I know, and I don’t want the word “Trainer” to scare you! Sometimes it makes me think of a ginormous muscular dude in a gym yelling at me to “try harder!” That’s not at all what we’re about. As I mentioned, my brother and I have spent a lot of time climbing. That third person in the picture above was our guide on that climb (and also our very cool uncle). We know how important the training is to climb a peak, but without a guide, we would have no idea where we are going. Let us be your guide on your personal technology journey! We believe that we know the best ways to not only teach you some personal technology skills, but to get you excited about it. Here’s three of those ways.
Our Trainers: They'll tackle the issue with you, they’re expert troubleshooters and they’ll teach you the tech skills you want to know. Best of all, they’re fun to be around!
Our Handbook: It helps you learn skills that stick, at your own pace. Trainers will take notes for you in your personalized TechTrainer Handbook. With pictures and guided "how-to" pages, you always have the step-by-step information you need, right at your fingertips.
Our Availability: You name the time and place! Schedule a session in your own home, at a public location of choice, or even online. We’ll make it work! Plus, text or call us after your session with quick questions. We’re always here to help.
Maybe you’re all set in the personal tech department. But I know you have a family member or friend who asks you for help with their phone or laptop from time to time (or maybe all the time). I am that person for a few of my family members, and unfortunately I’m not available all the time! TechTrainer is here to help. We offer a number of gift packages, and that friend or family member can book on their own time. We’ll be there when you can’t be.
Whether you’re booking for yourself or someone else, or you just wanted to learn a little bit more about us, we hope to connect with you soon.
