If you live in or near to Eastbourne and want to learn about using computers then you've come to the right place.

I have over 12 years experience of teaching people of all levels, so if you're struggling with computers then I'm sure that I can help you begin to take control. If you're terrified of computers then it's more than likely somebody else has helped you get here, or maybe they are reading this in an endeavour to help someone who is terrified of computers. Either way, drop me a line and let's see if I can help you, or them. I'm very patient and will work at my learner's speed.
