A bit about me...
"I am passionate about teaching children how to touch type. I've worked with thousands of children in local schools and at our own centres since 2011, helping them to become super confident touch typists. I find it incredible that schools are not teaching children this essential skill considering they are using more technology in their lives everyday." Wendy, Course Director
What parents say about us...
"Our two boys completed the week-long intensive touch typing course last week. Both were a little apprehensive as to what to expect. However, when I collected them at the end of the first session, they were both extremely happy and had really enjoyed the class. They said it was not boring or mundane. It was fun, interesting and they both felt they had learned quite a bit in the first two hours on the first day. For the five days, they practised the homework that was set and did so without me asking them more than once to do it - which is a rarity! How the classes are run and the kindness and patience of the teachers is clearly apparent as the boys were more than willing to get on and do the work that was set and their enthusiasm remained for the duration of the week. They have also practised every day since the course was completed. This is a life-long skill that every child should have the opportunity to be taught. We recommend this course very much!" Nicola Bowen, Parent
