WEB SAFETY GURU COURSE FORMAT

One to one computer lessons in your own home

Web Safety Guru courses are delivered via Zoom to customers throughout the UK and also via home visits in the Croydon, Purley, Sanderstead and Selsdon areas.

Home computer tuition in South Croydon and Purley

I'll visit you and we'll run through all the Web Safety topics on your own computer and at your own pace.

Everyone has their own specific queries and issues, so the duration of this programme will vary from customer to customer. An individual session may last 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The main programme has been designed so it can be split into two or three parts if necessary. If you choose to do this, the subsequent sessions will come at a reduced rate and will offer a recap of the issues covered in the previous session. The main benefit of face to face sessions is that you can show me specific issues on your own machine that give you concern. Similarly I can demonstrate how to resolve particular problems on your own device. Because there are so many different devices, operating systems and browsers, advice in a Zoom session will be usually be more generic in nature.

Covid 19: Home visits are available subject to UK Government regulations which may change at short notice.

Online computer training via Zoom

All courses are available in Zoom format. It is recommended that you join the Zoom call on a PC or laptop. If you prefer to use Zoom on a mobile device or tablet, you should have a second device handy for examples and exercises. I will share my screen with you for certain examples. You will not have to share your screen with me, though there may be scenarios where you choose to do so.

Zoom courses tend to be slightly faster than Home Visits, and are a little cheaper. Each zoom session is intended to run in the region of 60-75 minutes.

The Email Masterclass was specifically designed to run on Zoom. In this course I will share my screen to show you examples of suspicious emails, without any risk to you. We'll go through exercises which identify specific signs of fraudulent emails.

The Social Media Masterclass was also designed to run on Zoom. However as Facebook tends to work differently on different operating systems and types of device, we will aim to go through examples on your own device.

How long do the courses last?

I'm a great believer in the idea that people will generally learn more in two 90 minute sessions than one 3 hour session. We will be covering a lot of topics and I do not wish to bombard customers with too much information in one go. Splitting the sessions up gives the customer more chance to practice what they've learnt and raise issues with me at the following session. I have set the price structure for all courses so that second and any subsequent sessions are cheaper than the first.
