During school lessons, students may feel overwhelmed with the presented information, and if they’re unable to keep up due to poor handwriting, concentration issues or not understanding, they may simply give up. That’s where some extra help is needed. We are here to help.

What do I need to do before the class begins?
Download the software in advance of starting our program. Please ensure that you download the software before class. We will supply you with the Activation Code on the first day of class. If you encounter a software download problem with Chrome please use another browser.
What will I need to bring to class?
Nothing. Please ensure that you have downloaded the software prior to class if you are bringing your own computer.
What is touch typing?
This is typing by touch without ever having look at your fingers while typing. We will train your brain to type by touch and to access the cerebellum (the part of the brain that does things without thinking-muscle memory). To do this, we have to stop your eyes from looking down at your fingers. This is why we use specially designed keyboard covers.
What is a keyboard cover?
A keyboard cover is used when you are learning to type to cover your fingers so that you don't look at them. A cover will be supplied on your first day. This is for you to take home and keep. It allows you to train your brain to access the muscle memory so that the thoughts just magically move your fingers.
Is there a difference between Touch Typing and looking at your hands when typing?
Yes, there is a huge difference. There are lots of advantages to Touch Typing, including increasing your speed and accuracy, being able to type without concious thought, taking notes directly and increased multitasking. Adults who have learnt to type as a child without looking at their hands say that it is one of the most important skills they have ever learned.
Is there any homework in between classes?
Yes. The more you practice, the more your typing skills will improve. We do ask you to practice at least 30 minutes every day. This is not always possible, so practice a little more on the days you can. This will make a huge difference. Using our software, you can practice lessons, games, spelling and boosters.
There is lots of typing software on the market. Why should my child attend a typing class instead?
We are not just about the software. We have built our Qwertynomics methodology around children's learning styles and needs. We use a multisensory approach in order to allow all students to work in their own style and at their own pace. We pride ourselves on our results and our students' happiness and success. Our program is also suitable for children who have a wide range of special needs.
What is the best age to learn to type?
By the age of 7, children's brains are mature enough to learn to type effectively. Their fingers also have the motor skills and size required to type on a Qwerty keyboard successfully before poor typing habits are formed. It is never too late to learn. We have successfully taught over 1,400 students from age 6 years to 85 years.
