Marianne Bailey aka The Senior Tutor


Hi!  I'm Marianne and I am aka The Senior Tutor.  I have been teaching people how to use technology for 20+ years, but five years as The Senior Tutor.  My background covers a multitude of tech classes online and in person, a great job with Hewlett Packard and other tech companies, as well as a degree in Digital Marketing and Communications.

Teaching technology (especially to Baby Boomers) feeds my soul.  My personal belief is that trust is the utmost important factor in choosing someone to help  you learn.  Also, someone with patience who will show you HOW  to use your computer/smartphone/tablet and not just do it for you.

I try to shop locally as much as possible but:https://onlinetechlessons.com/

My favorite website for shopping is www.amazon.com

My favorite drink at Starbucks when Othello convinces me to have meetings there is a Chai Tea Latte with Almond Milk - no water.

My first car was a Volkswagen Rabbit.

My favorite car of all times was my Toyota Supra.

Please use the form below to contact me if you have any questions.  I'll be happy to answer any you may have.

Our New Website


For years, we've been looking for a way to be able to offer our services online.  There were a few hurdles to overcome, but the biggest one was the  security of our clients.  There's been the ability to log into peoples computers for years now, but we saw that as a security risk.  We didn't want people just giving anyone access to their computer and their data.  This is how people get scammed (at least one way).  Not only are you at risk of losing money by them accessing your banking info, but also planting things like Malware and viruses on your computer.

At the same time, we recognize there are a lot of people who are confused by different operating systems and devices.  Technology changes so fast it is hard to keep up!

We use Zoom.com to screen share OUR screen while you follow along in live time in a 1:1 setting. You have the ability to share YOUR screen without giving us access to your device.  

Your security and privacy is our number one priority.  We often teach online safety lessons in group settings so people are aware of the precautions they should take while online.

Testimonials from people who took computer lessons from us

My problem solver:


I am writing to recommend Marianne Bailey. I have used her senior technology services many times in the past two years. I have found her to be prompt, friendly and always professional. She never leaves until she is sure all my current problems have been solved. She never makes me feel uncomfortable because my technology knowledge is very limited.

I have been helped by her at my home, her home and the Kettering Recreation Center.

Patience of a Saint

 Marianne Bailey has given me invaluable computer help.  She is a true “computer pro” who is knowledgeable about every brand of computer.  Her patience and encouragement in explaining how to accomplish both simple and more complicated procedures, such as setting up spreadsheets, has helped me to gain confidence and greater computer knowledge.  I highly recommend Marianne to people working at all levels of skill on the computer.  Her fees are reasonable, and she is happy to give you the basic or more advanced lessons in your home or technical assistance at your business.

A Godsend!

 The Senior Tutor has been great for me!  I now understand how to use things such as Facebook and edit pictures, among other things. She even helped me pick out my new computer and tablets for both my husband and I!

Selling online

Marianne helped me learn how to do things on my computer that I had questions about and also helped me find a way to sell my artwork online.  Anyone would be lucky to have her as a teacher, whether it be online or in person!

More than just computer help

Marianne introduced me to listening to music online.  I had a bluetooth speaker that someone had given me a few years before for Christmas and it sat in the box in a closet.  Marianne was in town and I asked her to show me how to do a few things.  She gladly said yes and my home is now filled with music I choose from online and my speaker sounds great!  Thanks Marianne!

More than I thought!

To whom it may concern: Saw a newspaper article about Marianne helping seniors with their computer problems. I cut it out knowing that someday I would need to meet her. Bought a new Apple Mac and an I-pad and contacted Marianne right away. At our first meeting she found out that I needed a lot of help. She even added my smartphone into the mix and now we have all three items working together. She has been very helpful and patient with all my misunderstandings and bad habits. She stresses practice, practice, practice, because she knows that this is the only way to learn and to retain what she teaches. We have had numerous sessions and she is on my speed-dial. That's the best recommendation that I know how to give. Retired business owner,Stevent.  I now know where to go when I need a digital file or photo.  I understand how to post job listings on Facebook, Indeed, as well as other places.  I also now know how to run ads which increase my business daily.  Before Marianne, I didn't do any of it because it scared me but she showed me there was a way to do it without being overwhelmed.  I owe Marianne a lot of gratitude!
