Can she get to her local public library?

David Hunter says:
Yes, she can get to the local library. She really needs one-on-one tutoring.

Have you looked at YouTube videos?

Dittie says:
Well, I doubt the library has an official class so, basically, it would be one-on-one.

This is for my 65 year old mother. Nothing is better than one-on-one. YouTube would be too confusing for her.

Dittie says:
Has she been actually using it since February? Here's the thing, personally, I think if she's been using it, she just has some particular questions and needs a little help with those specific steps. If that's the case, her public library may be an ideal solution.

I second Dittie's recommendation to ask at her library. If they can't help her, they may know who could.

Also check for any seniors' clubs. We have a few seniors' clubs in this area that have a list of people that will help (often one on one) for different types of problems (including computer, taxes, etc)

If I played my dad's old-age card for him, he'd catch me and kick my butt from here to Tuesday.

I could have sworn the OP said his mom is 85. I need my eyes examined!

Yep!

Then get yourself into travel gear and go take care of yo mama.

Sheesh. I also can NOT believe you would be willing to "meet" some cyberstranger and provide directions to an elderly person to meet him. This OP must be a joke.

If you can't go visit her or explain it long distance , the her choices are friends, library or senior center.

Well, if she is willing to wait until December when I will be in SoCal to visit family, and she wants to drive up to Redondo, I would be willing to tutor her.

Wow, I was just trying to help my mother. I shouldn't have to explain her circumstances but I am not playing the old age card. She has never even typed before. She has never touched a computer before. She is struggling. It has nothing to do with her age. We all have weaknessess and technology is her weakness. Yes, I feel a bit uncomfortable with advertising for a tutor here but how is this different than Craigslist? I would guide her to meet at a Startbucks. I wanted to get her an iPad for this very reason. At least with an iPad she could sign up for one-on-one appointments. Sorry guys, I don't have $700 to fly to Cali every time my mom has a problem with her Kindle. It would just be nice if should find a person she could trust when having Kindle problems. My post isn't a crime.

Dittie says:
This is different than Craigslist in that it's not Craigslist. It's not a free public bulletin board and buying, selling, bartering, etc., aren't permitted here.

Aaaand, yes, you did play the old-age card. If she's that technologically challenged, for whatever reason, maybe an iPad would be the better device.

A lot of us are in our 50s and 60s. Around here, 'old' starts at least 5 years in the future (for each of us.) It is unusual that a female could have gotten through high school in the 1960s without taking typing.

Does your mother belong to any church or club? Even if nobody is offering a class, there might be interest in starting a self-help group for tech toys.

There are 9 public community colleges in Orange County. Chances are good all of them have some free community outreach classes. Others have mentioned senior centers...there are also government-run senior assistance offices.

You seriously expect to find someone she can trust on this forum???
