Welcome to Guide on the Side, the premiere computer coaching service
located in the Georgian Bay Triangle of Ontario, Canada. Our clients are learning on their
PCs, Macs, iPads and other mobile devices across Canada and in several countries. Guide on
the Side makes onsite visits in Southern Ontario, and also provides an easy to use
real-time online coaching solution to facilitate client learning worldwide.
Georgian Bay Triangle clients have the option, usually after one or two on-site home
visits, to work with with their Guide on the Side remotely over the Internet. These easily
scheduled - and often "just in time" - remote sessions have a reduced hourly rate, thus
providing the additional benefit of cost savings. For example, a 5 minute email attachment
