Let's Assess And Help Your Child Progress

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

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

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an assessment lesson?

An assessment lesson is a 30 minute lesson on Zoom with a senior tutor.

Why does my child need an assessment?

We offer a lot of courses and if your child has a specific learning difference such as dyslexia or dyspraxia, you may not know which course is best for your child. This 30 minute assessment allows us to get to know your child and by completing just a few lessons, we will be able to advise you which course or lessons are right for your child.

What happens during the assessment?

Our tutor will get to know you and your child so that they feel safe and secure and happy to participate in the session. We will talk about their touch typing journey so far, and why touch typing is going to help them in the future. We will cover the finger positioning required for touch typing, using our cameras to demonstrate this. We encourage your child to join in with a parent helping alongside. We will talk about posture and how important this is before we start touch typing. We will finish the session with a few touch typing lessons, working on the home row keys.

What happens next?

Following the assessment lesson, we will either speak to you directly on Zoom after the session has finished or give a written summary of our recommendations for lessons/courses going forwards.

Is it free?

We charge £50 for this assessment which is payable in advance. You are not under any obligation to book a course following this assessment.

How do I book?

Just complete the booking form online or give us a call to check availability.
