    Puzzled by iPad? Confused by that new 'smart' cell phone? Mad with Microsoft Office? Frustrated with Facebook? Questions about technology in general? Help is available.
    The Mexico High School chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) is hosting a free technology community service project on Thursday, Oct. 17 from 6-8 p.m. in Room # 5 of the Hart Career Center.
    The project will match students with attendees in order to provide one-to-one tutoring in such programs as Microsoft Office, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, Access, Adobe Photoshop, and many more. These tutors can even offer assistance with different devices such as tablets, iPads, and personal computers.
    Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP no later than Monday, Oct. 14. to ensure correct pairing with the tutors. Contact Sarah Gooch, Business Instructor and FBLA sponsor, at the Hart Career Center at 581-5684 to RSVP or with any questions.
    "I have heard many people in the community state that they would like their own personal tutor when they use their cell phones, tablets, iPads, and personal computers," Gooch said. "This is their opportunity to have a personal tutor for 2 hours."
