PRACTICALITIES

What area do I cover?

I live in Steventon and cover the nearby towns of Abingdon, Didcot and Wantage and surrounding villages in South Oxfordshire and the Vale of the White Horse.  I am also happy to travel further afield including Oxford, Wallingford and beyond, at an extra cost to cover my time and travel expenses.

How much does it cost?

£30 for 1 one-hour session.  Longer lessons are charged at a pro rata rate.

One lesson FREE if you pay for 4 one-hour lessons at the first lesson.  So you get 5 lessons for £120.

These costs are for distances up to 8 miles from Steventon.  For distances over 8 miles (when cycling becomes too hard!) I charge an extra £1 per mile per visit.

How do you book an appointment?

Just phone me, email me or use the contact form on my ‘Get in touch‘ page.  I generally work during the day, Monday to Friday, but can do evenings or weekends if necessary.  Most of my clients like to book only a week or two in advance so I can usually find you a time quite soon.

How many lessons do you need?

This very much depends on your requirements and is best answered by examples:

  • Mr K of Drayton started with very little computer knowledge and had a course of 5 lessons over a 3-week period to learn the basics of Windows, how to use email, internet browsing and searching, and the basics of Microsoft Word.
  • Mr S of Long Wittenham had one lesson to learn how to take photos from his camera and use them in eBay adverts
  • Mrs T of Kennington needed help with her printer, and a general health check and tidy-up of her rather old computer to improve its performance.  It took 1½ hours.
  • Ms S of Steventon wanted to update her office skills for a forthcoming job interview and had an intensive week where she learned the fundamentals of Excel and Powerpoint.  She had 5 hours of tuition, with lots of practice in between lessons
  • Mrs D of Marcham has ongoing lessons once a month to gradually expand her knowledge and answer any questions that arise between lessons.
