Touch Typing for Children in Schools


children touch typing at heathfield schoolUsing computers in schools is becoming a bigger and bigger part of every child’s educational process, for learning, producing and submitting coursework and assessments.

Most of these activities require children to be fairly savvy at using a keyboard.

I am really excited to be running Type IT! – Touch Typing classes for children from 8 years of age. We can offer the pupils at schools the opportunity to learn a skill that will last them for life – to be able to touch type quickly and accurately.

I am offering this new service as I am keen for children to learn this cognitive skill as young as possible, just when they start to type for the first time and before any bad habits creep in – such as hunting and pecking with two fingers! It will help them with their homework, coursework and prepare them well for senior school and university.

As well as external classes, if schools in the Harrow area are interested in offering TYPE IT! tutor-led courses as a lunchtime or after school activity please contact me.

Kind Regards
