Why Free Computer Training?

In this difficult economic climate, people need help developing the computer skills they need to improve their ability level, get a new job, or even start a business. Providing this free computer training is my way of giving a little something back.  I would like to provide assistance in the best way I know how…teaching!

One-on-One Computer Training, Tutoring and Classes (Webinars)

I offer one-on-one computer training by appointment via computer anywhere in the world. Does your company organization want to host a private computer training class? Sometimes my schedule doesn’t suit yours and I can arrange a private class based on your time constraints and considerations. Please contact me to learn more.

The University of Old Dog

This website is proof that you can teach an old dog new tricks. Affectionately known as “U Old Dog” by its students, this treasured institution helps old dogs become cool cats that use computers and technology every day.  Be proud to be an Old Dog and never stop learning new tricks.

Tony Holowitz: Free Computer Training

I’ve been teaching people about computers since 1998 as owner of the John Anthony Group, a computer training, consulting and web design firm in the Greater Boston area.

When I started my business I’d travel to my clients offices and hold training classes, seminars and provide individual training to employees.  Today, the Internet allows me to reach a much broader audience all around the world.  Many years ago the idea for Teach An Old Dog New Tricks was born when I trained a woman that was about 80 years old who loved to learn.

Charitable Giving: Pan Mass Challenge

For the last 13 years I’ve participated in an amazing event called the Pan Mass Challenge (PMC).  The PMC is a two-day 192 mile bike ride from Sturbridge Massachusetts to Provincetown, Massachusetts on the very tip of Cape Cod.

The PMC raises money for the Jimmy Fund and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston—more than 270 million dollars since its inception 30 years ago.  Last year, 4700 cyclists raised more than $30,000,000.

Sponsor Me

I plan on riding in 2014 and I’m always looking for sponsors (my 13th year).  You can sponsor me by visiting
