  • Tell them that there are many ways to use a computer – they should find the way that works for them. Like - mouse pad versus mouse versus track ball.
  • Try to speak clearly and not too fast. Take your time. Ask the student if they have any questions.
  • It is vital to tell your students about phishing. Let them know that they should never click on a link from an email to go to their bank, call a phone number from an email, etc. There are many scammers pretending to be their bank or other company and trying to get their log in passwords. If they get an email that they think is from their bank. They should close their email and go to their bank website directly – using phone and internet addresses they get from their bank bill, etc.
  • The people you work with will appreciate all the help you give them!
