  • " Having already had a successful visit from Tutor Shahiroz in April 2017, we knew who to call when problems arose with our system following major power surges caused by broken BC Hydro wires. Today she re-established links, removed redundant files, initiated effective clean-up, and ensured that our various devices were in sync. She was on time and on target - we very much appreciated her effective analysis and thoughtful suggestions. Thank you! JK 2018 06 29 "

  • " 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! "

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. "
