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 6 minute email and email attachment refresher session costs $4.90 Canadian. Choose the Live Support tab above to find out if Guide on the Side is available to assist you now.
