Never done screen sharing? No worries!

You might think that screen sharing with a computer expert can be daunting because screen sharing is difficult to set up. Don’t worry, we’ve worked with hundreds of seniors and we know exactly what to say to make it smooth and easy. It’s completely safe and secure. And don't worry — we'll show you how to close and cancel screen sharing so you know for sure the session is ended.

Totally private and secure

These days fake tech support companies are a very real threat. From our home base in Vancouver, Canada we've helped keep our clients safe from spam, virus scares, and tech support scams for over two decades. Lucas and his team have been doing in-home consulting since 2001 and expanded to international remote support during COVID. Privacy and security are extremely important to us; you will never be asked to show us or tell us your passwords… Everything we do for you we can do without knowing your passwords.

Grace (in Edmonton, Alberta) was worried about falling and not sure if she would be able to get to her phone. Her daughter recommended an Apple Watch with “Fall Detection” enabled but setting that up was daunting for Grace. Lucas worked with her for an hour via FaceTime to set up the Apple Watch so it was connected to Grace’s iPhone, enabled Fall Detection, made the Watch look nice the way Grace wanted it, and taught Grace how to use it.

Steve had passwords saved in Safari, Chrome, and an app on his iPhone. The password systems were fighting with each other and making Steve’s life miserable. Lucas helped Steve get 1Password set up. Together Steve and Lucas turned off the password management in Safari and Chrome, exported all the passwords out of Steve’s iPhone, and got everything nicely in one place. Now Steve is using it and loving having everything finally working!

Here’s what real seniors are saying about Macinhome private tutoring

“Mike was excellent! As are all your consultants! They are prompt, courteous and so helpful, we are so happy to have found you.”


“Great fast service! Kind and understanding of elderly needs! Thanks!”


“Kadir is my hero. I no longer feel anxious about my computer and my lack of skills. He's fast but thinks things through carefully and explains slowly. And he's professional as well as friendly. I lucked out!”

You guys are the best. I’m getting what I need, so I can accomplish what I want to do. What means the most though for me is the kind patient way you teach. We live in a world that is forgetting all about love, kindness, patience. Thank you for showing it.”

Betty was stuck alone in her care home during the COVID-19 pandemic, unable to connect with family and see her grandkids. Kadir from Lucas’s team was able to get special permission to visit as computer help and get her set up with an iPad and FaceTime. Over a couple of sessions we taught Betty to use the iPad and wrote down instructions for her in an easy-to-see place. She was quickly able to receive and make FaceTime calls and most importantly – connect with loved ones and see her grandkids!

Marion lived in fear of emailing and buying things online because of her concern that someone would take advantage of her lack of technical knowledge. With Lucas’s help, she now understands how to identify and avoid scams so she can email and shop online in total comfort and safety.
