I am Tech Trainer

In October 2010, I (Everett Wickham), as a sophomore in high school, launched Tech Trainer. I’d always loved technology, and I'd begun to see how much people wanted and needed help understanding their devices. I didn't start from scratch either. I'd helped my grandmother with her computer from the age of nine. And I loved helping her. Whenever she got a new device, I enjoyed exploring its features and explaining them to her. Together, we'd write down instructions click-by-click, so she could carry out basic tasks on her own. Then, in the fall of 2009, my history teacher noticed my abilities. I had helped her in class on multiple occasions. She asked me for a quote to give her some lessons and perform some upgrades on her computer. Other people began to hear of my abilities. I received more calls for help and various computer services. At this time, I didn't have a business, I was just acting as a friend, doing an odd job here or there. And so it began. Because my requests continued to grow, I decided to start a business to extend my reach to the community. I love technology, and I've always had an interest in business. It was the perfect match. My father, owner of Cartridge World Hickory, even offered to let me use a space in his store to perform lessons. Thus Tech Trainer was born.

I offer lessons on all of your favorite devices. And I don’t just rant on and on. First, I find out what you would like to know, and then I teach you how to do it. If you’d like, I’ll even help you write down click-by-click instructions for future use.

Wifi Network

Need wifi? I’ll setup a new secure wifi network at your home or place of business. And I won’t charge you an arm and a leg to do it. Or maybe you need help with your existing wifi network? I’ll troubleshoot it and get it working again.

Personal Shopping

We’ll take a trip to your favorite technology store and help you select the perfect device. You’ll get the most for your money. In fact, you’ll probably have more money paying me than you would if you found the device yourself.

Device Optimization

I’ll take a look and make sure everything is running properly. If something can be done to help your device operate more efficiently, I’ll either perform the tweaks myself, or I’ll help you understand what needs to be done.

Product Setup

Just buy a new device? I’ll come to your home or place of business and set it up for you. I’ll get on the floor and behind furniture to connect cables. All you have to do is sit back and watch. And you won’t have to worry about breaking something.

Software Upgrades

New operating systems and software updates come out all the time. I can help you get all of your devices up to date. Your devices will run more efficiently and you’ll enjoy numerous new features. These updates even improve the security of your devices.

Blogs + Websites

I have some of the lowest blog and website prices around. And my blogs and websites don’t look “cheap”. They make you or your business shine. Take my website as an example. Let me put you or your business online today.

Your Tech Handyman

Have another tech project that doesn’t fall under the services listed here? Need someone to run the PowerPoint presentation at your company meeting? I just might be able to help you. Contact me about your special project, and I’ll let you know what I can do.

About Me

It's important to note that I am very self-motivated and determined. I don't give up until I fix a problem. I've developed my knowledge of technology almost since birth. And I even figured out how to make websites - completely on my own. In fact, I developed this very website. I configured everything you see. I love business, and I love technology. They both run in my blood. But most of all, I love to help others. I am a Senior studying Business Management Information Systems on a full tuition scholarship at Liberty University, and I've been employed since I was just 13 years old. Alongside my studies, I serve as a Microsoft Excel/Access Tutor at Liberty University. I continue to serve my Tech Trainer clients when I am home from school during university breaks. I hope to serve you soon!

What a computer is to me is the most remarkable tool that we have ever come up with. It’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.

  • Louise Wickham

    Everett Wickham has made it possible for me to do so many different things on my mac computer! I live in Richmond, Va. and he connects me to his computer in NC. I am an artist/painter/instructor, and he has helped me to understand photos, downloads, tagging, which I use with students. I have several thousand photos that I have taken. Everett, also an accomplished photographer, puts 100’s of photos on fb. I am able to enlarge on my screen, and students, as well as myself, use for paintings and instruction. He had taught me the many uses of a mac a year ago, and for me it is a most helpful tool in teaching and personally using my mac. Also, he has helped me with skype, trash, etc., and more.
