Need friendly, one-on-one help with, or advice on your technology? Bring in your smartphone, tablet (Apple/Android), or your laptop (Mac/Windows), and give our friendly tech instructors a chance to assess the issue, help you resolve it and even show you a few things about your device. We'll schedule a one hour appointment with you where we provide simple coaching on one device or a specific application, or help you resolve those burning "why does that happen when I do this" conundrums.
