Technology Tutoring (Seniors/Beginners)

We take a very basic approach to working with individuals on how to properly navigate their smartphones, PC’s, Apple computers, tablets, printers and wireless modems and MUCH MORE! There are so many levels to technology and it can be down right overwhelming and FRUSTRATING, especially if there is not a knowledgeable, “patient” and warm individual to work with you on a consistent basis. We enjoy building relationships with our clients, so that trust and comfort are present.

The senior demographic is seemingly becoming a forgotten entity and this is not a good thing. Everyone we work, or speak with, says the same thing: “I simply don’t understand this stuff and there is no one to work with me.” Often times, seniors are calling on family members to be their “Technology Tutor” and it can create a great divide between the familial structure. It takes quite a bit of communication on behalf of both parties and much patience to create a consistent and successful relationship.

Whether you are a senior, a beginner, or simply do not understand the current technology landscape, we are here to assist! We offer senior discounts and like to work with those who are serious and truly trying to better understand technology, as it can empower and heighten our QUALITY OF LIFE. Our goal is to work with you until you get to a place where you feel comfortable enough to navigate the landscape of technology on your own.  Below are a list of classes that we offer:
