What Our Customers Say

Gerald Kinsella, Dublin

Aisling is a very knowledgeable and competent tutor and has the gift of simple explanation. Highly recommended to any starter or improver seeking the next level.

MS Word, Gen. Troubleshooting

Mary Landy,

Stillorgan, Co. Dublin

It was a happy day ,the day I stumbled across the ComputerTutor’s advert. I have worked in the Pharmaceutical Industry for over 25 years and felt I was lagging behind  technology–wise. In addition, I hadn’t time to attend a “regular” IT course, so Aisling’s offer of arranging classes to suit my schedule was very welcome. Aisling helped me tackle each IT issue head on and I grew in confidence as my IT skills improved. No issue was too small and Aisling walked me through IT solutions that had been bugbears for years .I highly recommend ComputerTutor. In a short space of time I was up and running again with a newly honed skill set and the confidence to put into practice what I had learned in the classes”  

John Redmond, South Dublin

Over the years I have attended quite a few classes to Improve my computer skills. But this one is very different because it is tailored to the specific need of the client . This I believe is only possible because of Aisling’s very broad knowledge of her subject. I certainly enjoy the classes and wish her continued success with her company which I know will grow from strength to strength.

Mobile, Cloud, General Computer/File Management, MS Excel, MS Word, Email

DB, Dublin 

I recently had one to one tutoring with Aisling in relation to Personal Computer problems and queries on a variety of topics. She invariably provided answers to the questions raised and, where necessary, got back to me quickly with further helpful information. She also provided me with further suggestions in relation to some of the topics discussed.

Aisling is an excellent communicator and has a pleasant manner.

Video Editing/Upload/Download, Computer Management and Settings, Gmail, MS Excel, Mobile Apps - Spotify, Mobile Settings

Rosie Crimmins, Blackrock.

I have had 4 hours tutoring from Aisling in my home and it was the best money I have spent on myself in months. She was excellent and I now feel so much more confident and empowered doing my work. She was very patient, thorough and really knew her stuff. I would highly recommend her.

Cepta Murphy, Foxrock.

Aisling has supported me greatly in my efforts to upskill with my devices. She is highly skilled ,highly qualified, extremely diligent and professional. She is totally dedicated to her clients, be they private, or business. No task is too much trouble.  I sought her help recently to make a short video and she persevered until both of us were completely happy with the end result. She is most conscientious.  Aisling is my 'go to’ person for computer or smartphone  support and I recommend her ,without reservation to anyone looking for a very pleasant and patient teacher of IT.

Catherine Whooley, Dublin

Aisling was amazing. I was low on self confidence having used old systems for so long. She explained everything brilliantly and made everything easier than I had anticipated and with care and kindness. I would highly recommend her to anyone feeling unsure of heading into the world of I.T. or taking the next step.
