Digital Technology Tutoring

Specialising in working with people with disabilities.

I provide one-on-one training and support in digital technologies such as mobile phones, iPads, tablets, computers, the Internet and social media.

Contact: seanfitz64@gmail.com or 0404 130 342
NDIS Service Provider Number: 4050024930

I Can Help You With:

  • How to use mobile phones, iPads, tablets, computers & other digital devices.
  • Using the Internet & social media – including the NDIS portal, MyGov, Medicare Online, online banking & shopping etc.
  • Finding, downloading, installing & using programs & apps.
  • Buying digital devices or phone, Internet & NBN plans.
  • Customising your digital devices for special needs, or learning
    how to use their accessibility features, such as speech recognition.

I can assist you in getting the most out of your digital devices. I will work with you to find ways that technology can be used to help you to achieve your goals and become more independent.

I am sensitive to the challenges faced by people with disabilities and can personalise our sessions to suit your individual needs.

I live in Inner West Sydney, but can travel to your home or workplace, or we can meet in a cafe or library (travel fees may apply). We can also meet over voice chat.

Payment Methods

The method by which I charge depends on how your plan is managed.

If You Are Agency Managed:

Then this means that I must be engaged as a registered provider. Whilst I'm registered to deliver only one support item - Innovative Community Participation, item number 09_008_0116_6_3 - in the Increased Social and Community Participation (Category 9) support category, I can be paid with any available funding in that category unless support items (other than mine) are specifically stated in your plan.

If You Are Plan Managed:

If you have a plan manager and don't have funds in the Increased Social and Community Participation support category I can still be paid with other line items in other support categories. Ask your plan manager whether you have any suitable funding in your plan, or get them to contact me.

If You Are Self Managed:

As with plan managed, if you don't have available funds in the Increased Social and Community Participation category then I can still be paid with other line items in other support categories. Self-management is very flexible. Self-managed participants don't have to comply with the NDIS price guide - like plan managers do - and can negotiate their fee rates with providers.

Concessions, Negotiated Rates & Pro Bono

My ultimate goal is to help people with disabilities get the technology support they need. If you think you might have difficulty paying my standard fees, whether it be due to financial hardship, money not being in the right budget, you have a plan manager who feels constrained by the NDIS price guide, or for any other reason, please contact me so that we can work something out. In very special cases I work pro bono (for free).
