Zoom Classes

If you’ve come looking for the free class formerly known as “Tech Support Tuesday,” you’re in the right place!

These classes are meant for non-techies and beginners, so come as you are and bring all your tech questions! We will also teach on tech topics that are relevant to home users.


Do you wish you could have peace of mind knowing that all your documents, bank accounts and credit cards were safely stored in a digital form? I call this having a Digital Disaster Plan.
