Let's Assess, To Help You Progress!

If you have a specific learning difference and you are not sure which course is right for you, we encourage you to book an assessment lesson so that we can choose the best course for you.

This is a 30-minute face-to-face assessment on Zoom with one of our senior tutors and includes feedback at the end of the session or by email.

We will get to know you, and put you at ease so that you feel confident and relaxed before discussing posture, finger positioning, and working through an overview of all of the letter keys. During the session, you will complete some simple typing exercises. There is no obligation to book a course at the end of the session.

We Follow A Proven Formula – We Know What Works Best

We Set Your Lessons

You will have one week to complete your assigned lessons which have been set by your own designated tutor. They will make sure the amount set is achievable and manageable! All of the lessons online are fully supported with video and audio instructions so you can’t go wrong!

Check Your Results

On a set day each week, your tutor will check your results online, including your actual keystrokes. So we know exactly how you got on without even being there! We will even do a video analysis of your typing in week 3 just to make sure you are on track.

Give Next Steps...

We will then give you any advice on any areas for improvement as well as lots of tips and tricks to make your touch typing easier. We will unlock your next lessons giving you a clear guideline of what you need to do and how to do it.

What People are Saying…


"Great course for adults as well"

Additional skill for my work. Despite my personal challenges and recolation, with the right support from Tracy, Jude and Wendy I managed to finish the remote course successfully. I enjoyed every lesson and I feel proud of how much I’ve progressed. I totally recommend it to adults and children.
