  • " 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 "

  • " A while ago I called you to ask you to send one of your ‘gurus’ over to help me with computer problems..... and after explaining my needs to you, you recommended Alex. You were so right in recommending him and I want to pass on to you how much I have appreciated it. I have had several problems over time, and he has helped me so much in solving them. He takes the time to explain everything to me so patiently and clearly .....and just fixes what I am having trouble with and doesn’t push me to go into things that I’m not interested in And yet he has given me many ‘tips’ and ‘helps’ with things I didn’t know about...... and it sure has helped me to understand and ‘get’ it !!
