jimi, do you have a laptop or a desktop? Do you use Windows? You'd probably need to learn on your own computer rather than somebody else's since that's the one you'd be working on the most, and you'd also want to get the easiest-to-use programs installed on your computer, like TheLostSwede says. If you have a laptop and are willing to come to my place, I could show you a few things. I can't really get to Sanchong from Zhonghe very easily or very often, and I have to watch after my two kids a lot of the time.
Like TheLostSwede, I've also taught my dad many things over the years, and he's improved quite a bit. I think he still has problems with file management and moving files to different folders, but he rarely needs to do that. He can do things like email, Skype (with video), surf the web, add data to his genealogy program, and backup his computer. I'm sure you could learn a lot more and a lot faster than my dad.
I have a soft spot in my heart for people that want to learn, and you seem like you're genuinely eager to learn these computer skills. This computer teaching topic may need to be split into it's own thread if it becomes too long, but we'll have to see I guess.
