What is computer mentoring?

MENTOR: a wise and trusted counselor or teacher.

Dictionary.com Unabridged. Retrieved January 03, 2015

You’re frustrated and need help to get your computer to do what you want it to.

Friends and family go too fast and don’t really explain, and you don’t like to bother them anyway. A class just isn’t personal enough using strange equipment, with a teacher who covers things that aren’t relevant.

Computer Mentor is the smart alternative. You’ve found help here.

As your personal computer mentor, I’ll spend the time getting to know you, your equipment, and work to understand what you do and do not already know. I’ll learn how your computer works and what you need it to do for you.

This is why we use your own computer. It ensures that everything is relevant to you and the issues you experience. A true mentoring experience centres on you – so you get the benefit. We’ll only work on what you need to know right now.

Personal and completely flexible

As your personal computer tutor I’m completely flexible; I’ll fit into your timetable and can spend as much or as little time covering a topic as you need. It doesn’t matter how fast it is or how long it takes, the only important thing is that you feel that you’re confident in what you need to know. And if you want to revisit the same topic again next time, that’s OK – we all need to go over things more than once!

I can help teach you about your existing equipment or educate you about what’s new in technology. And when you’re ready to move on I can introduce you to other topics you may not yet know about.

Using secure software, we can both see and move around on your computer screen while we talk on the phone. That way I can show you exactly what to do. It’s almost like I’m sitting right beside you in person.

Building confidence is always important. As your confidence grows and you move on to new topics, I’ll be there when you need me for support.
