Welcome to my Home Tuition page
The opportunity to learn what you want on your own computer. Motto: 'One step at a time'.
Sometimes it is difficult to get to a class or the computer at the library is different to the one you have at home. When you are a beginner, these things are offputting and the barrier to the on-line world grows ever greater.
What I have listed below is not an exclusive list - Help with other software can be considered.
