I am a GT alumnus (MBA '99).  

My son (age 13) is a computer fanatic.  As a father-son summer project, I am going to allow him to take the lead on building his own computer.  However, since I am only moderately literate (at best) with computer hardware assembly (espcially as it relates to compatibility of parts, specs, and so on), I'd like for him to have an experienced mentor to help with the project.

I am seeking one GT computer science student who is completely fluent with computer assembly and comfortable working with others.  The goal is to serve as a mentor and guide for me and my son as we proceed through this project.

Minimum Requirements:
  • Complete fluency with basic computer (desktop) design, assembly, parts compatibility, OS compatibility, etc.. 
  • A focus on safety and high quality, detail-oriented work.
  • Willingness to work with a 13 year old son who is a hard worker and listens well.
  • Willingness to let my son "perform" most of the work under your guidance & supervision.
  • Schedule is flexible.
  • Willing to travel to our house in Sandy Springs near I-285.
  • Willingness to understand that the project may not take very long.
I will work out a fair fee with you to compensate for your time & travel.  It could be viewed sort of like giving lessons, but instead of it being in sports or music, it would be lessons in building a PC!
Thank you!
