My mum has been showing interest in learning how to use a computer and get online and I am thinking of organising a couple of hours tuition for her and I was wondering if anyone has had tuition or if your parents or someone you know has had it.
My mum had a bad experience at a local college a few years ago where despite it being a beginners course everyone else there knew basics like how to turn the computer on, what a 'left click' was, how to turn a monitor on, how to get onto the internet etc and she left that after being shouted at by the instructor and scared off computers until now.
I can't do it myself as it's too late in the day by the time I could help her, and my father is not good at explaining things.
I have found a few people offering to do the tutoring, one of whom I have spoken to and sounds lovely. He charges £15/hour which seems very reasonable compared to the others (about £25/hour).
How many hours do you think might be ok, my absolute max money-wise is 6 hours as I am organising and paying this for her, do you think this will be enough?
Once she has the basics I can help her add to that, but she needs someone with time, knowledge, patience and used to teaching complete novices.
Any tips, experience and info appreciated.
