Learning to use new technology is a challenge for all of us. This can be especially true for many seniors who may have put off getting a computer or smartphone until recently. For these seniors, one or two hours of help from a tech-savvy family member might not be enough to get them comfortable using their computer or phone.
That's where Tech Tutors comes in. Tech Tutors offers a series of 1-on-1, in-person lessons specifically designed to build a rock-solid foundation for new computer, smartphone, and tablet users.
At Tech Tutors, we understand that new technology doesn't really come with a user's manual. We also understand that there are many skills the average tech user takes for granted that can seem mystifying to a tech neophyte. All our Certified Tech Tutors understand these challenges and have been trained to identify and work through these difficult areas with new tech users.
A Certified Tech Tutor will meet you at your home, office, a coffee shop, library, or wherever is convenient for you! Get your questions answered and learn using your own computer, smartphone, or tablet.
