1 on 1 Tuition
In providing 1 on 1 tuition we recognise that our tutors will be assisting our members with widely differing backgrounds. Some will learn more quickly than others; some may feel overawed by the jargon and the technology. We adjust our pace to suit your comfort zone so that you not only learn about your device but, and most importantly, enjoy the learning experience!
Little or no experience? We will introduce you to the basics on your device/computer
Normally conducted over a school term 9 weeks at 1 hour per week, this ensures that you have the basic universal skills that you will need to operate, and feel comfortable with your device/s.
You will be offered a day per week when a slot is available with a tutor whose skills match your needs. This Tutor will be your prime contact with the club and you and your Tutor are required to exchange contact details.
NB: We do ask that you let your Volunteer Tutor know, if for any reason, you are unable to attend your planned lesson.
I’ve a laptop a mobile phone and a tablet – do you have these devices at MCP?
Our tutors assist our members on their own devices. Learning on your own devices makes for an easy, comfortable experience knowing each task learnt at MCP can be practised on you own familiar device at home.
What could I learn to do?
One of the most confusing things for newcomers to digital technology is deciding what to learn. The possibilities of what can be achieved using your devices are almost endless. There are few tasks, regardless of how complex, that cannot be done today by those who are prepared to spend a little time on learning the basics. You may not believe it, but you too are capable of producing professional results which will astound everyone!
