Founded in 2012, eGurus is the brainchild of CEO, Jennifer Cairns, a self-described nerd with a heart. Jennifer first came up with the concept for eGurus when, as a hands on technology trainer, she was inundated with requests from friends to help their parents adapt to new technology in their lives. She noticed that mature adults in particular, would struggle with embarrassment about not understanding new technology as much as they would with the technology itself. Jennifer decided to change all of that with a “no such thing as a dumb question” approach to technology support for mature adults.
eGurus mission is to make a difference in society by empowering older adults with knowledge around technology and its usage in order to remove fear, facilitate independence and foster relationships.
The company provides in-home and remote technology setup, tutoring and support to simplify technology and empower people. Its specialists are different because they understand how the aging process relates to learning and they customize one-on-one education experiences accordingly. eGurus focuses on building relationships that remove the stigma around technology and that keep customers coming back in order to stay on top of the ever-changing technology in their lives.

" Chris Mitchell has been helping me with technological problems in my computer as well as tutoring me about using both the computer and my new smart phone. I was so impressed with his knowledge, professionalism and patience! He made me feel that I could master these devices instead of feeling overwhelmed by them. He was very good at explaining how and why things worked and I highly recommend him to anyone who's feeling that they can't learn to use the new technology. Thanks Chris! "
" Chris came over to help me set up my new tablet just the way I wanted it. He was knowledgeable, helpful, attentive, understood my needs. He was professional, courteous and honest. He conducted the session as a tutorial, in a mixture of talent and magic. I am grateful to Chris, and will not hesitate to call upon him again. E-Gurus Technology Tutors have helped me well over the years. I recommend them wholeheartedly. As I recommend Chris, without reservation. Thank you. Nikki Basuk, Victoria, B.C. "
" Steve completed the task of solving my delima that arose from an email I received extremely quickly and resolved my concern completely. As he had some additional time available Steve was also able to teach me how to create new e-mail 'files', which I had been needing for some time, plus he helped me to be knowledgeable about a group of old discs that I had been reluctant to dispose of. Through the process today, Steve displayed the ability of being a very good teacher with exceptional instruction ability. His ability will be helpful in future!!! Tks "
