Instructor Biography

Mitch Stevens, Certified Teacher and Youtuber

Hi!! I'm known online and Youtube as Mitch aka the iPhonecaptain. I have been part of the Youtube community since June 2011. My channel currently has over 30,000 subscribers and we share iOS content, Jailbreaking Tutorials, and Much More. If it makes your iOS device perform better chances are you can find it on my Youtube channel. I was a Science/Math teacher for almost 20 years so I thoroughly enjoy teaching others new concepts.

I have been blogging and a Youtube creator since 2009 when I started iPhonecaptain. Once I started building an income online in 2011, I pretty much became addictive to getting more and more.

Fortunately, I was able to quit my job teaching in 2010 to devote all of my time to earning an income online full time.
