Keeping You On Track!

Your tutor will check your stats on our system (we can even view your actual keystrokes!), and give you feedback and advice on how to overcome any tricky keys. We will then set your next lessons and tell you how to do them.

We know it's not easy learning something new on your own

We act as a mentor really, encouraging you throughout. We know it's not easy to learn something new on your own. By the end of the course, you will be typing quickly, automatically and without looking at the keyboard.

Flexible To Fit Around Your Week

The remote course is very flexible. It doesn't matter what time of day you choose to do your practice, you just need to complete your lesson by your chosen day each week so that your tutor can give you feedback on the next working day.

What our touch typists have to say...

I started the Type IT! Remote Touch-Typing Course in August thinking I was only ever going to be able to type very slowly using two fingers but after completing the course I can now proudly say I am on the way to being able to touch type without even thinking about it and this is all thanks to this brilliant course! 

Grace - Student

"As well as improving my typing skills immensely this course has been extremely enjoyable. Wendy’s feedback has always been prompt, clear and very useful. I would recommend this course to anyone." Tommaso (age 14)

“The course was extremely useful for a 14-year-old, she learned quickly and saw the value in the touch typing technique from the very first day and was motivated.”
Lilja, Parent.

"Superb remote touch-typing course! The luxury of being able to complete the course at home to fit around busy school schedules was brilliant. The weekly lessons were well planned with clear and easy to follow instructions. The weekly progress reports received after each online lesson were extremely thorough with detailed feedback and tips on progression.  My daughter felt fully supported throughout the course and would highly recommend to others." Mrs D. Daughter, completed for DofE Bronze.
