Welcome

WHY TUTOR?
There are two methods of tutoring, one is in the group environment and the other is one-on-one. Cyber Walks prefers private in-house visits which benefit both the tutor and the student. Your tutor understands how to relate to an individual who is new to modern technology and assists the student in creating a comfortable learning environment in which a positive experience with computers can be created.

Our society is divided into those who can communicate electronically and those who can not. Don’t be left behind. Learn how to use the computer and learn how to make your computer work for you. Four lessons will have you off and running.

WHAT PROGRAMS ARE TAUGHT?

IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?
Age is all in the mind. There is no age limit for learning, in fact, keeping the brain active is an important part of keeping well.

HOW MANY LESSONS WILL I NEED?
As many lessons as you decide. Most people are off and running after 4 lessons. Once pointed in the right direction you may not need further instruction as "practice is the best policy."

I'M NERVOUS!
Computer anxiety can directly affect the learning process. Anxiety usually occurs when something new is being learned. This causes resistance to change and has negative effects on cognitive performance. These fears contribute to negative learner attitudes and are detrimental to learning methods.

Adults learning to use computers often fear the:
* unpredictability of computers
* public exposure of ignorance
* threat of failure

There are various methods of combating fear of computers
