ViewFinder: Cole at the Los Altos Senior Center

Cole Brinsfield lends a hand to seniors with technology. Oh, and he's in seventh grade at Egan Junior High School.

Cole Brinsfield has been giving tutorials to seniors on using new technology since the summer of 2010.

Everybody at the who has worked with Cole always raves about his patience and knowledge of technology, says Candace Bates, senior center coordinator.

"He has grown and proven he's responsible," Bates says. Ever since he has first started working at the senior center, he has been given more opportunities to teach and work with seniors, she added.

Bates said a senior came in with new Kindle and not a clue about how to use it. Cole did not either, but he sat down and figured it out with her.

Cole offers classes by appointment. On Monday, he will offer a computer basics class, and he will explain geo-caching on July 18.

Cole's services are free. Membership in the Los Altos Senior Center is $26 for residents, $40 for others. The Senior Center can be contacted at 650-947-2797.
