Fully Guided 12-Week Course With Your Own Dedicated Type IT! Tutor!

Our touch typing tutors are there to support your child throughout the course. From giving them motivation, tips and tricks and helpful advice, to modifying their lesson plan and setting their next lessons, we are there to help.

Your child will have the best of both worlds. They can work remotely from home but with the added reassurance of having someone on hand to help. It really makes a huge difference in giving the best chance of finishing the course and getting a fantastic result.

A course that fits around your child's busy timetable

Our courses are very flexible. It doesn't matter what time of day they choose to do their practice, they just need to complete their lesson by their chosen day each week so that their tutor can give them 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.
