Computer Lessons for Beginners

We specialise in teaching beginners, visiting you at your home or office at a time that suits you.

We work at a pace that is best for you, and explain things at each step, so that you will build up your confidence and comfort in using the computer system. Throughout the sessions, you are guided in practical, hands-on activities and quickly become familiar with new techniques and get a good understanding of what the system is doing.

Training sessions are conducted in a friendly and flexible manner, and typically last around an hour. Shorter or longer lessons are easily accommodated if that is what you would prefer.

A range of subjects may be covered, as shown below, but we also spend time on the specific areas that are relevant to your own needs and interests.
