Jessie P.  -  Toronto

"I was 80 when The Computer Gal introduced me to computers for the very first time! Melanie set up my email and Skype accounts, and showed me how to use both, allowing me to communicate with distant friends and family. Since then she has shown me how to use my computer to search the internet for information on a multitude of subjects. I can look up anything I want to know. Her patience and warm personality gave me the confidence to enter the world of computers... which I confess I always thought was too daunting for someone my age! Thank you Melanie for convincing me. You have made my golden years happier!"

Hilary G. - Mississauga

"I enjoyed meeting you and found your instruction to be very helpful. I was telling a friend that if I had someone like you to explain this stuff to me much earlier I  might not have been so wary of computers. It is never too late to learn!"

"Hi Melanie, Thanks for the great follow up notes. I really enjoyed our meeting and I feel so much more informed and organized, even though it was just our first attempt at getting my technical life in order."

Stephen P. - Toronto

"Melanie, what a great job you did to revive both my laptops. I really could not believe that the laptop with Vista could ever be saved due to the number of virus infections it had. Next was the Windows 7 laptop that got a virus, and from what I understand most of the operating system had been shut down, and you manage to bring this one back to life again. I figured the Vista laptop had become electronic garbage and its life had ended and you gave it a 2nd life.  Great job and I would highly recommend your services as I believe I gave you the ultimate challenge! "

Nancy K. - Oakville

"Hello Melanie! I've found you and discovered I already "Liked" you! Will watch more often for your Facebook posts. It was such a satisfying visit with you. I will look over your notes from our session. I'm very much looking forward to having more tutorial sessions. Thank you so very much for everything!"

Margery L. - Oakville

"I'm most appreciative of the flexibility of the tutoring sessions. It's a great way to motivate a non-techie when there's a choice in skills and interest approach. Melanie summarizes the lesson with notes that recap the lesson. This is most helpful, as these apply to one's own computer format. Many thanks to Melanie!" - October 2017
