Testimonials

Here’s what some of our clients are saying…

Trina Standford, Employment Trainer PQES“Kerri has amazing patience and knows how to work with clients from differing backgrounds and experience levels. Her enthusiasm is contagious and it excites the students and makes learning fun!

At the Pinecrest-Queensway Employment Services Centre, we have many clients who can’t even turn a computer on. During Kerri’s workshops, they begin at this stage, but by the end, they have a new-found confidence that comes from feeling proud that they can send an email, browse the web for information and actually type a letter or document they may need for their job search.

The benefits to our clients are many, the most prominent being access to professional-level computer classes taught by someone with a wealth of experience and knowledge teaching adults new technology. They learn in a non-judgmental environment, where they feel safe to learn and explore. Kerri does an amazing job and we’re happy to have her in our centre!

To me, getting a new computer has been like visiting a foreign country where I barely speak the language, and I need someone to show me where I should and shouldn’t go.  Kerri is that someone, who can and does show me and teach me the things I need to know.  Without her, the whole computer experience would not only be scary, but probably never have happened.

Kerri is very polite and cheerful and made me feel very relaxed while learning in our one-to-one sessions.  It was a very fun experience and one I will definitely do again in the future.  Thank you, Kerri, for all your help.”

“Kerri has a keen thirst for knowledge which is a great asset when working in technology. Kerri, on the other hand is not your average computer consultant; she has a great personality. She has the unique ability to troubleshoot computer problems with a smile on her face.”

~ Stephane Perron, Abundance Financial, Ottawa, Ontario

 

Monique Tardif“Technology has not always been my strong point so there comes a time when ego goes into pocket and a phone call is in order.  Kerri was there for me.  This lady knows her stuff, how to explain it in plain English and give those “visual words” so that you can actually remember what you have heard and learnt.  What a concept!

Kerri is a born teacher with a sense of humor and the patience of a saint.  I now know what I am doing (mostly), am willing to move on and will be calling her for further instructions.  It is quite a relief to be able to count on someone and get results – she teaches, I learn… Thanks Kerri.  Without you there would be more computers flying out the windows.”

~ Monique Tardif, Nepean, Ontario

 

“Kerri has spent some time instructing us on how to better use the new social media tools that are available, to help promote our Seniors’ Centre.  She is an excellent instructor.  She has a wealth of computer knowledge and the talent to pass it on in an effective, relaxed, easy going style.  Her passion for instructing new computer users, coupled with her patient tutoring style makes her the perfect instructor for new computer users of all ages. “

Marthe Murphy, Body of Life Holistic Health Services“Kerri at Computer Tutoring Ottawa has been a big help to me. I really liked the ease of being able to call her up and have her walk me through… the steps to understand how to do certain tasks on my computer.

“What a great service this is. Having learned all my computer skills on the job… I never did learn the basics of just what my computer could do. I was walked/talked through (since most of my help was over the phone) so many applications that I am quite proficient now. I was never made to feel stupid or uninformed and now I have the confidence to tackle new and different things. I know the Computer Tutor is there if I need it. Keep up the good work.”

~ Kay Quirt, Belleville, Ontario

 

“I would recommend Kerri to help you learn more about your computer.  She is skilled in her domain, and if you want to learn something specific, tell her and she will show you that one thing until you’ve learnt it. She is an asset for woman over 60 as she understands how we feel learning at this age. After having a few sessions with her, I must say she is punctual, patient, warm and an honest person.  Next time, I will call her when I need her assistance.”
