Welcome to my Group Tuition page
Although primarily an Edinburgh based home tutor, I am happy to teach small groups basic computer skills. This can be as a course of 4-8 sessions or a session integated into another course such as literacy skills.
The session can be for four people with their own laptops sitting round a table, or for eight in a purpose built computer room.
The content is adapted according to the needs of the participants.
