Certainly people will become more comfortable with *computers,* but
that's not the point. IME, some learners are simply uncomfortable with
*any* teaching method that does not involve another person. The ability
to ask a human being a question can be extremely important.

I agree with the mom thing... mine is as likely to send me email as she
is to call me. :-) But like you said -- YOU helped her. You, an actual
person. That may be why she was able to get past her intimidation.
