On the flip side, eGurus often receives requests from out of town children asking for an eGuru to go into their parents home to set up Skype.

  • " When I was hired to manage content for Indigenous Corporate Training Inc.?s newly launched blog (Working Effectively with Aboriginal Peoples?.com), I faced a wall of fear and confusion as I did not have experience working the backend of a website. In one hour, in my home, Jenn broke down the process in a logical, step-by-step format that removed the fear and provided me with the skills and confidence I needed to access the site, insert content, videos, pictures and hyperlink between postings. I highly recommend her as a teacher. Julie Domvile, writer, blog manager "

  • " After experiencing computer frustration for about two years, a friend gave me the phone number for Jennifer Cairns, the computer tutor for seniors. I thank this friend every time we meet as his suggestion has given my life a whole new dimension. Jennifer Cairns turned out to be a wonderful person with a winning personality, great sense of humour and the patience of a Saint. Her methods are simple and learning about computers with her is fun and one of life's great pleasures. I recommend her to anyone with computer problems. If she can't help, nobody can. She is a fountain of knowledge and has the ability and grace to share it all. She's also gorgeous! Lorne John Dubay "

  • " Tina, I want to thank you so much, from me, from my parents, and from my brothers and sisters. You went beyond what could have ever been expected of you, many times, and in many ways, in helping my parents. We recognize and appreciate all that you did for my parents, and for us. I am so grateful that you were there to help them. For you information, I talked with Cleve on that Saturday. He also sent me a follow-up email, last week. He has taken the issue to corporate security. Tina, you are a wonderful tutor, and you work for an admirable organization. I appreciate the specialization you offer with seniors. Thank you for your knowledge and your people skills. R. Jones Vancouver, BC "
