Learning to touch type is all about repetition to enable the correct finger-to-key movements to become automatic. Returning for a Booster Course (anything from 2-5 sessions) helps to:
correct any bad habits or wrong fingering that might have crept in
refresh the learning by going back over appropriate lessons interspersed with lots of games
cover touch typing keyboard numbers and the grammatical symbols above them.
move the focus to improving touch-typing speed using practice elements in both the software programme and Type by Touch's practice sheets. We also use Word and practice with real life material (newspapers and magazines) as well as verbal dictation.
Booster courses are designed to cure any particular problems or to help build touch typing accuracy and speed. Those with learning difficulties may require more time to really embed the skill. Please contact us to make a personal arrangement regarding suitable times and costs.
Flexible, "pay-as-you-go" Tuition
Bespoke courses for adults and children made under individual arrangement. You may prefer a venue of your choice, for which there may be travel expenses.
Please contact us to discuss your individual requirements.
Course cost is available on request. Courses are based on 12hrs of tutored lessons (bespoke timings by separate agreement). Please contact Type by Touch for details.
In holiday periods courses run over 4 consecutive days with 3hr 15min sessions scheduled in either the morning or afternoon. Light refreshments at break are included.
Discounts are offered to a hosting family and for additional family members booking the same course.
Cancellation within one week of start date or on the course itself, will not be refunded (only serious extenuating circumstances will be reimbursed on an ad hoc basis). If cancellation is made up to three weeks prior to course start, you will be offered a place on another course or a 50% refund less the booking fee of £30. Cancellation prior to that will receive a full refund less the booking fee. Should we, for some unforeseeable reason, need to cancel the whole course we will refund all monies paid but accept no further liability. If we have to cancel part of the course, refunds will be pro rata. Course fees are non-transferrable.
