Frequently Asked Questions

How do I book?

You just need to click on the ‘Book Now’ button and complete the form details and make your payment. Once we receive your form and payment, we will email you a comprehensive welcome pack.

How many students are there in a class?

Spaces are limited and are offered on a first come, first served basis. There will be 3 students per group.

My child has a learning difference, can they still join?

Our school Zoom lessons are group lessons so you will have to consider whether a group lesson is suitable for your child. Perhaps you feel they would benefit more from one-to-one help. It may be best for them to attend a 30-minute assessment first, which is chargeable. If you are not sure, please just give us a call.

Can we join anytime?

If we still have spaces available, your child can join part way through the term, but will need to continue with their lessons the following term.

What is the minimum/maximum age?

Our courses are suitable for all children aged 9+.

Do you set homework?

Yes, we set a little bit of practice each week (no more than 20 minutes), reinforcing what they are learnt with us in class, so they can come back the following week ready to move onto learning new keys. So they will need access to a laptop with internet access at home. Ideally a keyboard cover as well, but details of how to make one of these will be in your welcome pack.

How will I know how they are doing?

We will send a brief summary of their progress to you each week either by email or as a voice note via Whatsapp.

What happens if my child misses a week?

Unfortunately, there are no refunds for absence or illness and lessons cannot be carried over. If it’s appropriate to, we will email the practice to you so that you can support your child at home, ready for when they are able to rejoin the class.

What is the role of the tutor?

All of our touch typing tutors are lovely! They are ‘real’ human beings – not bots! Our tutors are all ages and nationalities and come from different backgrounds and are all DBS Enhanced checked. All of expert tutors can touch type proficiently – some over 100wpm! Some of our tutors are teachers, some work in business and others are university students that learnt how to touch type with us many years previously. The one thing we all have in common is that we are passionate about teaching children this wonderful life skill. We really care about what we do and go out of our way to ensure your child gets the very best out of the course.

Our tutors are there to offer support and encouragement to your child throughout the week. They will show them how to make the keystrokes using their on screen cameras so that your child can copy and follow along. They will be checking their accuracy and giving tips on how to remember the keystrokes. They will ensure that the children in their group are enjoying the lessons, modifying and adapting their lessons where necessary. They will also facilitate fun games during the breaks.

Your child’s tutor will keep a close eye on their progress and with our years of experience, we can tell if a child is finding it too difficult, or they are getting frustrated. Occasionally we may change the programme and lesson plan we are using to make it a little easier for your child.

What are the expected outcomes by the end of the course?

For the first half of the course, the emphasis is all about accuracy – maintaining an accuracy of 95% or more. Towards the end of the course, if your child is feeling confident, we will start working on some speed exercises. Final speed will depend on a number of factors, the main ones being natural ability, age and also how much practice your child does outside of the lessons. Speed will increase naturally the they practice and so the speed they finish on at the end of the course is just the beginning. Most students will need to carry on practicing after the course has finished to help increase their speed further, although some students do achieve amazing speeds by the end of 10 weeks. We do offer follow on courses if students wish to improve their speed further.
