Computer Coaching one-on-one for Seniors and
NDIS clients really works
Have your children or grandchildren tried to explain how to use your computer? We bet afterwards you were left feeling even more confused and reluctant to try it on your own.
Not only that but in a classroom environment, the teacher has only 3-5 minutes of their time for each student one-on-one. With computers, everyone is at a different level of understanding. With our one-on-one training sessions you will receive that personalised attention that is not available in a group environment.
Our sessions are organised one-on-one which is suitable no matter what level of understanding you are at. You will learn more, your confidence will increase and you will save so much time and frustration from trying to work it out. Technology is always changing and we need to keep our brains fresh and up-to-date with the changes. We need to learn how to learn so we can become empowered and independent.
