Computer Lessons for Senior Citizens

We provide one-to-one tuition and guidance in your own home, tailored to your needs, and delivered by a patient and knowledgeable tutor who has experience of working with people aged 50 plus. Having worked in this field for a number of years, we have previously undertaken I.T. tuition work in liaison Age UK, and have passed through their vetting procedure (including DBS - CRB check* see below)

There’s no need to worry about the commitment and inconvenience of a public course; find out from the comfort of your own home exactly what you need to know.

Our emphasis is on increasing your confidence. Tutorials are easy to follow and start with basic but essential topics, establishing a good foundation before moving on.

Lessons for OAPs, never too old to learn

If you are already familiar with your PC, we can take you further forward and guide you on some of the more challenging subjects.

Beginners will gain in confidence, learn new skills and will soon be able to do much more with their computer or iPad. They should quickly become familiar with how to keep in touch with family and friends, learn about shopping, booking events online, and generally "looking things up".

Learn how to...

  • use your system with confidence
  • attach documents and photos to an email
  • how to search the internet effectively, including how to get the best results
  • do a supermarket shop online
  • use online public services, such as applying for car tax, passports or using services like NHS direct
  • finally sort out those digital photos
  • listen to or watch missed TV programmes on the internet
  • stay secure online
  • sort out your desktop
  • use Microsoft Office – Word and Excel
  • play films and music on your PC or Mac

For those of you who already have some computing experience, our tutor can give you individual help on more advanced subjects. Select from Powerpoint, photo editing, Skype, Word, Excel, system maintenance and much more.

We are based in south Buckinghamshire and operate between Chesham and Marlow, and from Princes Risborough across to Beaconsfield and Gerrards Cross. Please look at our Map page for more details.

* CRB checks are now called DBS checks - Disclosure and Barring Service. These checks give information about a person’s criminal record (if they have one).

A DBS check is an essential part of running safe services, and it is an important part of the assessment to help to make sure that people working in regulated care services are suitable and that people who use those services and their families can have confidence in them.
