Hello Jane, Thank you so much for my tuition session - it was exactly what I needed and I found you a gifted tutor. Best wishes, Barbara Pratt
You truly have patience and are a lovely person. Thank you. Jean S.
Hi Jane, Thanks - that was great. I feel much more confident now to use the pc and Windows10. Best wishes, Steve, Steve Minshull International
Thank you Jane. A very patient attempt to teach me something - and I think you succeeded! Edward Payne (94)
Hi Jane, Just to say my new found talents have already been put to good use and you only left two hours ago! – ClipArt/images/text wrapping etc. I'm already doing a new poster for Jack and his music. My brain is buzzing!! Thanks for steering me in the right direction. Mary.
"Jane's ability to impart knowledge surpasses any teacher I have ever known." K. Ferrari
really helped me to understand and use Microsoft Word, Excel and
PowerPoint. She teaches you at your own pace, is extremely patient
and ensures you understand everything before moving on to the
next stage. Her revision and self-help assignments which follow
each training session are invaluable too. I would certainly recommend
Jane (and have already done so) to anyone needing help with computers
and software/programmes generally." Allan Westray
"As a teacher
Jane Williams is excellent; patient, dedicated, clear and also
she makes learning fun. She converted me from being a ‘computerphobe’
to being really rather an enthusiast, maintaining a clear sense
of purpose and a welcome sense of humour throughout. She is an
excellent teacher and a very likeable character. I thoroughly
recommend her to others hoping to learn about computers and feeling
that perhaps this is a rather daunting task ahead of them. Jane
will resolve all problems, thoroughly and amusingly. Any pupil
of hers is in an extremely fortunate position." Emma Lloyd-Jones
Today, when you came to mind, I was just praising you and thinking 'thank goodness for Jane', my digital hero, unwittingly preparing me, just in time for the Covid-19 pandemic!. Our hospital department is so very digital at the moment. You would be amazed at what I have achieved. This morning I was on Microsoft Teams listening to the OUH staff briefing.......from home I might add! I also organise Microsoft 'Huddle' meetings at work to keep social distancing and teams supported. I am also thinking about home banking......that is a little scary! I can also see my work desktop with Citrix .... I am not pretending that I am an expert, half the time it is pure luck and I cannot believe I have it working. However, I would not have had the confidence without your training, and I really thank you for that. Susan T.
... and then one week later ... Dear Jane, I am now an online banking whizz!! Thank you so much. Susan T.
is of two kinds - we know a subject ourselves, or we know where
we can find information on it." Computers
were not invented in 1775 when Samuel Johnson wrote those words.
But like me, he would have found the talents of Jane Williams
an immense help in his career, as I have in mine. Jane is cheerful,
patient and deals with aplomb with any computer matters I set
before her. She deals with both routine and confidential matters
with integrity and as a teacher is first class.
Anne C Silk
contacted Jane Williams as I needed help with E-mail attachments.
This she did with great speed and patience. Following this pleasant
experience, I decided to learn more about computing, having struggled
for many years on my own. I
started a course of lessons with Jane and am very pleasantly surprised
at the amount she has taught me, and the confidence that she has
given me in such a short time. I feel that she has very gently
pulled me into the twenty-first century. I can thoroughly recommend
her patience and understanding of the individual's needs." Gillian Neale Antiques
I do enjoy
our lessons and feel it is good for me to have that spell of concentration.
I found that with the class lessons that I started I got so embarrassed
and then very flustered by it all, especially when we did the
photo course. But now, thanks to you, I enjoy the digital photography
very much and hope to experiment more. Very many thanks. Margaret Pearce
Hi Jane, Just to let you know that I have already replied to 2 emails and sent 2 more. I feel empowered! Best wishes, Lesley W.
... and then 5 days later..... Hi Jane, I am corresponding daily with a few friends and getting faster. Love predictive text as it helps me go faster. Have also browsed a caterers site and sent an enquiry. Am writing a list of questions for me to ask you when next we meet. Hope you have had a lovely weekend. Kind regards, Lesley W.
...and then 1 month later ..... Hi Jane, Just wanted to say how fortuitous it was that I had those 2 lessons with you before Covid-19 lockdown! I have been able to keep in touch with friends and have even ventured onto WhatsApp and had a couple of video calls with my brother and his young children. Also doing online ordering. Best wishes, Lesley W.
Dear Jane, Just
a quick note to say thank you again for all your help in setting
up our computer and printer, and in coaching two old codgers to
get a bit more able to cope with modern electronic life! You were
marvellously efficient and sensitive to our needs, and we are
very grateful for your help. I am so glad I telephoned you in
the first place. Goodness only knows if we will be able to cope
now on our own, but so far so good. If we need further help I
shall know where to come. Thank you again.
Yours sincerely, Nancy (& Bill), High Wycombe.
Dear Jane, Thanks for making life a little bit more interesting. Best wishes, Gordon (age 97)
I want to say a huge, massive thank you for all the help you gave to me to allow me to conduct the online interview. You would have been so proud of me Jane I arranged the room so that it looked professional in the background as you suggested. I have to say that technically I did feel quite confident thanks to you and your patience showing me how to operate Skype as well. The learning curve for me with the Skype etc was invaluable and I really do thank you very much for that. Thank you once again for your prompt response in helping me, organising a great venue, your invaluable expertise and immeasurable patience. All of these were greatly appreciated and I want you to know how very grateful I was. If I have any other further computer queries I will not hesitate to contact you when I am in that area. Thank you once again for making something possible that I nearly did not go ahead and present myself for. Thank you very much for all your help, patience and cooperation it was very much appreciated. Also it was a real pleasure to meet you Jane. Kay T.
Thank you so much for your help this morning. I really enjoyed
it and am very pleasantly surprised at the amount I learnt. I
will, no doubt, need to learn more soon! Thanks again. I'll be

Jane, Thanks for your notification of our Google website listings,
we are very pleased with these early results. To find that

Hi Jane, The webiste looks
good. All my new business cards, letterheads and car advertising
are sporting the new logo that you made for me, and of course
the web address. Thanks for all your help and professional advice
- it's a pleasure to do business with you. Joan
Jane, Thank you so much for our new website, it is just what we were hoping for - we love it! Gary & Jill
Dear Jane, I'm going through all the e-mails
including several from AFC members who have looked at our new
website and said how good it is! I agree!! I love the noticeboard
on the members' page and the concert posters you've created -
it's all very attractive and user-friendly. Thank you so much
for a great 'launch' to my first year as Chairman - I'm really
thrilled to have this to mark a new beginning for the choir.
I will be in touch about another session with you to continue
setting up (and sorting out!) the laptop.
Best wishes, Pat - Aylesbury
Many many thanks for your help this a.m. I hope I can give you some idea of the fun I have had - HERE GO's:-
This was me BEFORE you came NOW I'm like THIS! Thanks again. Roz
Just wanted to thank you so much for the tuition on Friday, I
so enjoyed it and now feel less afraid of the computer and am
now having a go at things! You certainly are extremely patient
and very good at explaining things, and I really did appreciate
that. I look forward to booking another session with you in the
near future. With all best wishes,
Yvonne’s message to her Sisters):
Guess what, I’ve just had my first 1-to-1 computer lesson
and it was great. So wish I’d done it earlier. Was really
apprehensive and nervous as my skills were so basic, but the tutor
was a very patient little lady. My computer is going to
be so much better and organized. I’ll actually have a full
proof filing system once I’ve eventually transferred everything
into their homes/folders.
Yvonne’s e-mail to Jane:
Thanks so much for a very enjoyable first lesson. Just wanted
to let you know what a fabulous tutor you are. Every single document
is now living in its right home/folder. Once I had started I simply
had to complete the task. I’m so chuffed. See you in a fortnight. With Thanks, Yvonne
Hello Jane, I just want
you to know how much I have enjoyed our sessions, and found you
such a competent and relaxed tutor. Thank you very much for typing
all those addresses for me. I am sure we shall meet up again so,
until then, all the very best. Warm regards, Valmai
Many thanks for the lesson yesterday - the fog
is beginning to clear - and I've done some follow-up - so with
luck I'll have fewer nightmare scenorios! Looking forward to the next lesson.
Best Wishes, Eve
