2. Detailed Feedback

After your child has completed their lesson, their tutor will check their results online, including their actual keystrokes. So we know exactly how they got on without even being there! We can then give advice on what they need to do and how to do it as well as lots of encouragement.

Common Questions & Answers

How Long Are The Lessons?

Your child's personal typing tutor will set them enough lessons to last about one hour a week - your child doesn't have to them it all in one day. They can do a little every day if they wish.

I'm Worried My Child Won't Like It

So far, we haven't had any students give up, which is great news! Having a friendly personal tutor checking in on them every week, makes such a huge difference to their motivation. The course is varied with short bursts of typing and typing games, which makes learning fun.

My Child Is Dyslexic. Will They Cope?

Yes, they certainly will! Again, because they have their own personal tutor, they can ensure that they are setting the right work for them. We can adjust any of the lessons to suit their needs.

How Fast Will They Type?

Speed is something we focus on right at the end of the course. Accuracy is the most important thing. Speed builds naturally with practice. All students finish the course typing at least 20wpm, and some with speeds above 50wpm!

Is It A Live Lesson?

No the lessons are not live. We find that students prefer to work independently around a time to suit them. It allows for much greater flexibility and also keeps the cost of the course down. But don't worry, having a remote tutor is just as effective as a face to face tutor. Our system allows us to see their actual keystrokes so we get an accurate view of their typing.

Is My Child Too Young?

We recommend that 9 years old is a good age to start the remote course. It doesn't mean that younger students can't do it. It will just mean that a parent will need to supervise them whilst they are doing their lesson just to make sure their finger positioning is correct. Our courses are suitable for all ages - up. to adult. We adjust the lessons accordingly.

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 6-week 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

My 12-year-old daughter really loved the whole online learning experience of Type IT! She joined the course as she wanted to get faster and accurate while typing her assignments and essays and the course has really helped her achieve that. The whole online material used is so well-tailored for children of different age groups with support from the allocated course teacher. We as parents are very happy with the outcome and would really recommend the course.

Archie (Parent).

I would recommend Wendy without hesitation. She is professional, flexible, warm, caring and gets results. If anyone is looking to achieve proficient typing in a short period of time, she is your person.

» Dr Pinkus

My 11-year-old son embarked on the touch-typing course and completed it within 6-7 weeks.
He felt that as he progresses through education and writes essays and dissertations in the future, touch typing would be a skill that serves him for life. We valued the flexibility to do the course on the days and times that work for our schedule and the feedback from his tutor was excellent.  He was able to complete the course from the comfort of his own home very successfully.
