WyePads - iPad classes

So you've got an iPad. How are you getting on with it? Have you mastered the basics but lack the knowledge or confidence to do more? Or has someone given you an iPad insisting "it's easy", but you're terrified to use it? Either way you can rest assured - you are not alone!

Whichever category you fall into, help is at hand - Alison Matthews runs classes for people just like you.

Build on the Basics

For those who are confident with using email and the internet but would like help with getting the most from their iPad, Build on the Basics classes last an hour, and cover all the things people commonly want to do with their iPad, with loads of tips and tricks to make things easier. 'Settings' will no longer hold any fears for you! Come with your individual questions, or relax and be shown some simple 'tricks' you might not have come across. Each class lasts 60 minutes and costs 10.

Total Beginners

Alison also runs small, friendly, slow-but-sure 'Total Beginners' courses for complete beginners who have never used email or the internet. The limit for these classes is 6 people. The sessions cover things like personalising your iPad; using the keyboard; connecting to wifi; emailing; taking and sharing photos; and how to download and use apps. These classes last 90 minutes and run at a gentle pace, with ample time for practice and plenty of individual help. Each class lasts 90 minutes and costs 15.

Beginners Plus

If you are familiar with emailing and have used the internet, even if only a little, then Beginners Plus may be the best class for you. You will be shown how the iPad does these things differently but the same; how to use the other apps like Photos, Notes and Contacts; and how to personalise your iPad so that it behaves and looks how you want it to. Each class lasts 60 minutes and costs 10.

Individual Classes

If you would prefer to come alone or with just one other person then that's an alternative option. Such sessions last an hour and cost 20.

Class Dates

The next batch of classes start the week beginning Mon 13th February 2017

Beginners Plus - Mondays from 2.30 to 3.30 pm
Build on the Basics - Fridays from 2.30 to 3.30 pm

Don't forget to bring your iPad along, preferably fully charged!


Friendly, one-to-one tuition on getting started with your laptop or desktop computer or using Word, Excel, email etc., is also available.
