Are you looking for training that specifically addresses your own needs?
Computer training courses delivered in classroom situations can have many drawbacks:
- Fitting in with someone else’s timetable
- Travelling time and expenses
- Lack of fit between the syllabus and your own needs
- Lack of personal attention
- Training delivered at the wrong pace for you
How about this for an alternative? One-to-one private computer training at home in front of your own PC, delivered in bite-size chunks of one and a half to three hours (you choose how long each computer training session should be).
Private computer training in London at your own computer has many advantages for you:
- Your own questions are addressed
- There are fewer distractions with home computer lessons
- You do not incur any travelling time or expense (and I do not charge to visit you)
- Your computer training can be delivered in “chunks” as small as 90 minutes
Can I suggest:
- You make a list of at least some of the computer problems that you are experiencing and/or the computer skills you would like to acquire or improve
- You send me the list
- We discuss it
- We have one computer training session to see how it goes
- We take it from there
This method is designed to get the most from the time available. The initial commitment is to a single computer training session only. If you only need one session, that’s fine. If, after one session, you don’t think this method works for you, then that’s fine as well. If you’d like to book another session, that’s even better!
So, start your list and get in touch

If you need computer training for a program that I do not know, then I will offer you a special rate for us to explore it together. Apply my 30+ years of professional PC experience to your specific questions and we’ll probably find the answers you need in a tiny fraction of the time that it would take you on your own. Alternatively, if you have specific problems in areas unknown to me I will quote you to research the problem wherever possible and practicable.
