Individual training

Done via Zoom since Boomers and senior adults learn at a different pace than they used to when they were younger.

Using Zoom allows screen sharing and other features and tools. We instruct and then share screen to monitor progress while offering directions and suggestions (show, tell and do).

We break down jargon, show relevancy and benefits, patiently offer practice and repetition, provide notes, cheat sheets and even videos.
