Who we are

My name is Ian Van Slyke and I’m the owner of Mac Learn.

I’m an Apple Certified Pro with over 25 years of experience working with Apple products.
I started working with Apple products in the early 90’s, and then went to work at the Apple Store at Lenox Mall as a trainer for over 4 years. In 2014, I started Mac Learn as a business so that I could help people directly at their home, business or organization.

Over the last 15 years, I’ve worked with hundreds of customers both as an Apple employee and then as a business owner. Whatever problem you need to solve, I’ve usually helped somebody resolve a similar issue in the past.
Give me a call if you have any questions about my services, and I’ll do my best to make sure you’re fully satisfied.

Apple has released the macOS Big Sur 12.2.2 update, the fourth update to the latest operating system for Macs that launched back in November. By now, Apple has fixed a lot of the bugs that macOS Big Sur users may have encountered. If you’re thinking about updating your Mac to Big Sur, I think that now is a good time to do it.

Big Sur update

If you would like to get better at working with spreadsheet applications like Microsoft Excel and Apple Numbers, I offer courses for beginner and intermediate training that will help you really get going with both of those programs. Using just basic skills, these programs allow you to create financial budgets, schedules, trackers, inventories, and much more. If there’s something you want to create in Excel or Numbers, I can help you make it happen.

Was very impressed with Ian’s knowledge of my computer and his ability to resolve the problems I was having with my 6 year old Apple! Would strongly recommend Ian’s services to anyone having issues or questions about their Apple computer. It was also nice not having to take my computer into a computer “repair shop”, but rather have the “computer doctor” actually make a house call to ultimately diagnose and fix the problems I was having with my computer in my home!. Thank you, Dr. Ian!!!

When I heard that Ian had been a “creative” at the Apple store, I knew I had to give him a try. And best yet, he came to me, so no waiting at the store. He is not only articulate, patient, reasonable in price and a pleasure to work with, he knows his stuff. Then when out of town and needing help, it was no problem to have him work with me while he viewed my computer remotely. He has helped me with the issues I call about and then so much more. Since I did not grow up with computers, Ian has helped take much frustration out of the tech world for me and I highly recommend him.

I’m an old, grey haired guy who just doesn’t understand computers, but I needed someone to teach me how to use a Mac and fix a few computer related issues…I was in need of help when I came across Ian’s name, saw that he was local and contacted him with my problem. Ian responded almost immediately and we set up a time to meet. Ian was punctual, articulate, patient and took the time needed for me to feel comfortable with my new computer. Ian doesn’t talk like a “computer person.” He uses language that is easy to follow and understand. I have scheduled several sessions with Ian, and each time I have been more than 100% satisfied with each learning session. I highly recommend Ian and “Mac Learn” for any and all computer related issues you may have…Big or small…Ian is the guy for you!
