Silhouette specializes in Computer Instruction
and Training for seniors
We can instruct you how to use the necessary software and programs to connect with family and friends. We can help seniors enjoy their independence, explore their interests and suggest new areas for seniors to explore and experience.
Don't have time to take courses, get annoyed by classes that drag through the parts you know and fly through the parts you don't know? With one on one tutoring we spend the time on the areas you want to learn without wasting time on what you already know.
Tutoring can be in-depth or an overview. It doesn't matter if you've never worked with a particular program or system or have been working with it for years, tutoring is the answer.

Quite often clients need just a few hours help a week, or a one time project completed. Too much work for existing staff, not enough work to justify another employee, even a part-time employee? We can help ease the workload, either by performing small tasks (deadline guarantees) to one-time projects. Need an Excel spreadsheet created to track office expenses, an invoicing system created, data entry etc., we can help you get, and stay, caught up.

Many problems can be resolved over the phone or on-site*. In the event a computer needs a complete overhaul we remove the computer to our office and return it when the overhaul is complete. No need for you to disconnect and transport your computer.

Trying to load a program, software crashing, computer freezing? Many software problems can be resolved over the phone or with an internet connection. With XP or Vista we can connect to your computer and see exactly what is happening and walk you through the fix. This serves to fix the problem and also teach you how to resolve the problem yourself so you don't have to rely on outside help.
Computer Data and System Back Ups
Back ups are necessary evils but we don't always have the time or patience to deal with disks and programs and storage; not too mention obsolete media forms - Remember 5 1/4" floppies? Tape drives? Let us help you with your back up solutions.
