Okay, how do I book a tutorial with you?

Step One: Contact me in one of the following ways:

  • You can send an email to [email protected]
  • Or you can text me at 780-940-5274
  • Or you can use the submission form at the end of this article.

Any which way you use, please provide as much detail as you can as to what you need to learn. Even if you come up with a list of 5 or 10 items, that’s a great start! The more info, the better.

You’ll note that I prefer you contact me via email or text. This is for two reasons. First, it gives me a written record of all of our arrangements, which just makes planning easier. Second, if you can send an email or a text, then I know you have the basic skills needed to proceed ahead with an online tutorial. I have also assisted people simply over the phone, but it is easier if I have the ability to see what is on your screen.

Step Two: I will contact you to discuss any further details and set a time and date for the tutorial

Step two is free. It is more so that I’m clear as to what you need, and I can give you information, if required, to prepare for the tutorial. If your request is something I don’t have experience with, I might also be able to suggest some alternative courses of action.

Step Three: On the scheduled time and date, I will contact you and we will do the tutorial.

We may use video services like Zoom, Skype, Google Meet or Facetime to do video calls. Don’t worry, if you have never used them before, that can be a few minutes of the tutorial. One way or another, we’ll teach you what you need to know.

Step Four: Payment and follow up.

I bill $50.00 an hour plus GST for tutorial services. I realize these are strange times, so I am willing to consider product or service barter. As for actually making a payment, I can show you how to use Interac if you online access to your bank. I would also accept gift cards for places like Safeway, Home Depot or iTunes (to name a few), and you can mail those to me. I will also accept cheques, money orders or bank drafts, but once you try Interac, I think you will see the value and convenience of it. So at the end of the tutorial, we’ll figure out how payment can be forwarded.

Part of the reason I teach is to learn, and I always find that I have questions left over from almost every session. If this is the case with your session, I’ll send you a follow up email addressing any “loose ends” from the tutorial.


Really think about what you wish to cover. Once you get into the session, and hour is not a long time (I hope it’s because you are having fun). I also realize that for many of my clients, who are a little older, that a handful of skills per session may be all you can handle. That is fine. All I want to be sure of is that you learn what you need to, and that you don’t leave the session more confused than when you started it. Most of all, I want you to get value for your money.
