“Honey, no matter what I do, I can’t figure out how to use this new gadget.”

Anyone reading this, who claims that they haven’t received that call (at least a half dozen times in a day, no less) shortly after their parents (or grandparents) decided to splurge on the fancy new computer, phone, smart TV, or other gadget, is lying. It happens, and whether we like it or not, we smile and help as best as we can.

But what if there was another way; what if there was someone who was willing (and eager!) to take that call, and provide a walk-through, with support and patience? Well, there is: Tech Tutoring With Lisa, founded by Lisa Charow-Jay, is a technology tutoring service provided by a certified teacher and technology coach with years of experience. Charow-Jay can help you (or your family) learn to use your fancy new devices and seemingly complex technology, figure out “The Cloud” (she even wrote a blog about it), explain your social media accounts and everything else!

“As a technology coach with LEARNstyle, a Canadian company which works with school boards to help students in the special education program learn to use assistive technology, my job is to go between various schools and help students use prescribed assistive technology as per their individualized education plans (IEPs),” said Ms. Charow-Jay on a phone call. But when COVID hit, it hit hard. I went from daily full-time in-school training to working on special projects at home. Due to COVID, I haven’t taught children since before March break, she continued. That’s when the entrepreneurial bug kicked in.

Being the community-focused person that she is, Lisa decided to leverage her expansive network to launch Tech Tutoring With Lisa in June, with a simple premise of helping anyone in need wrap their heads around Zoom, Google Drive, Facebook pages (and Instagram), and other new technology (using the cloud). “Basic word-of-mouth referrals, online events, and Na’amat Canada, a charity I volunteer for, have really helped propel my business forward,” said Charow-Jay. “I have received a lot of inquiries from people all over Canada about a variety of different tech tutoring needs and I offer them the attention, personalized instruction, and support they need.”

Still confused about this uncertain school year? While we know most provinces are going back to school in person, many will be split between in-school and online classes. Parents will need to choose to keep their children at home for distance learning or connect them to Zoom for online classes. In the case of the latter, students (and parents) will be overloaded with online work delivered via unfamiliar technologies, and this is where Charow-Jay wants to help.

“I am always happy to chat with potential clients about what they are looking for before booking a session,” reassured Charow-Jay. “I want to make sure we have a plan going into our session and we are always able to use our time together effectively.”

Thank you for choosing TheJ.Ca as your source for Canadian Jewish News.

We do news differently!

Our positioning as a Zionist News Media platform sets us apart from the rest. While other Canadian Jewish media are advocating increasingly biased progressive political and social agendas, TheJ.Ca is providing more and more readers with a welcome alternative and an ideological home.

We revealed the incursion of anti-Israel progressive elements such as IfNotNow into our communities. We have exposed the distorted hateful agenda of the “progressive” left political radicals who brought Linda Sarsour to our cities, and we were first to report on many disturbing incidents of Nazi-based hate towards Jews across Canada.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your HELP!

Our ability to thrive and grow in 2020 and beyond depends on the generosity of committed readers and supporters like you.

Monthly support is a great way to help us sustain our operations. We greatly appreciate any contributions you can make to support Jewish Journalism.

We thank you for your ongoing support.

Happy reading!
