As well as being extremely patient, Jane has a friendly, flexible
approach to ICT training. Computer lessons are tailored
to suit the client, whether they are complete beginners, professionals, job seekers, career improvers, "silver surfers", PC or MAC users, in their home or office.
Jane has prepared many courses/lessons, but often a client will prefer a 'troubleshooting' session, selecting specific
items that they require assistance with. Jane is quite happy to do this.
However, for those wishing to learn a subject more thoroughly it
is recommended that they select from the course
list. Jane has constructed each course so that, in
the vast majority of cases, it is completed within two to three
hours (depending on the client and on the course). Most clients
learning at home have lessons of two hours duration, whereas corporate
clients tend to have half or full days.
Clear jargon free handouts are provided with the
set courses. Jane demonstrates and explains every step, referring to the course hand-outs where appropriate. She then assists the client as they carry out each step themselves.
Jane is based in Aylesbury
and covers much of Buckinghamshire and neighbouring areas (see
map). Please note that she does not cover London, the rest of the UK, the USA or indeed Australia!

Age UK Digital Champion. Donate your old PC. If you have a working PC or laptop sitting in your house gathering dust and taking up space, why not donate it to Age UK? Age UK know that your old PC may have personal, private information on it, so they guarantee to wipe it clean and securely remove all details to internationally approved standards.
They also clean, test and then install Microsoft software to get the PC ready for a new home and all for a worthy cause. The proceeds of your donation will directly support Age UK's vital work. All they need is the working PC tower or laptop, along with the accessories that make up the computer, but they are unable to accept any screens, monitors or other equipment. You can take your old PC to many Age UK shops - please check with your local shop to make sure that they can accept them. You can find your nearest shop by using the search box on the Age UK website.
