Class Information - How We Work

 

Location:  Classes either take place at my location in Kilmacud, or at your office or home. We also do online classes regularly, sharing screens and chatting over Zoom.  Where I travel to you, a travel fee will apply for the time taken to  get to and from your location. In this case I usually do longer sessions with clients to offset the travel cost somewhat. 

  

Pricing: We charge on an hourly basis.  Rates start at €45 for private classes for individuals (discount available for pensioners).  For corporate rates, please contact us for a quote.  Payment can be made in case or through our online payments system (see "Payments" at the top of the screen, by Revolut, bank transfer or cash.  

  

One class or 10?  It's up to you! We provide long term training where tuition spans several weeks or months, and shorter stints focusing on specific skill improvements.  

Is ComputerTutor right for me?   The best place to get a feel for how we work is the Customer Review section below.  We have worked with every walk of life, every skill level, every age from 16 to 86.  There are no stupid questions, and every student starts by feeling bad about their technology skills, and finishes feeling confident and more in control.  Plumbers, artists, solicitors, homemakers, authors, entrepreneurs, CEOs, politicians, salespeople, accountants, engineers, construction workers, office workers....the list of past students goes on.  Try one class and see for yourself :)
