COMPUTER LESSONS TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS

It’s the little things that frustrate; the not knowing how and is there a quicker, safer and better route to take?

Friendly face

With home tutoring, we are the ‘friendly face’ of IT providing step-by-step, practical tutoring at your speed and pace with the security of stress free technical support as and when you need it. It’s about people and we never lose sight of that. Cost of home tuition is £25 per hour.

Luke is based in Lymington (UK) and covers much of Hampshire and neighbouring areas and teaches all ages and all abilities; with an age range of 9 to 90, you’re never too old to learn. In fact, the over 50s and 'Silver Surfers' are a speciality!

Lessons are tailored to your needs, whether you are a complete beginner (of any age) learning at home, or a business requiring in-house software training on a one-to-one or small group basis. People learn in different ways and training is therefore more effective when it’s tailored to the individual; something that E-learning courses cannot do.

One-to-one tuition is the most time efficient way to learn.

By having tuition on your own PC you know that what you learn is going to work on your computer and any course material or assignments are appropriate for you and your versions of software. The software used at other training establishments (colleges, libraries, E-learning etc.) may not be the same version as that on your own PC and this presents problems and stress from the outset.

But with one-to-one tuition, clear and jargon free hand-outs are provided and explained. You can download information and with a friendly, informal session – usually 2-3 hours – you can learn what you need AND at your pace.

Luke IS VERY PATIENT AND EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD WITH BEGINNERS and does..
