As a virtual service, Tech Tutors is available anywhere you are. If you can use the Zoom video conferencing platform, you can use Tech Tutors — it’s that easy!

Our tutors are great with technology. They specialize in topics like eBooks, Microsoft Office, basic internet skills, and social media. However, they aren’t experts in everything. Please use FCPL’s Job Seekers online guide for help with job searches and applications.
