Why Us

Type A+ offers specialized touch typing classes instructed by teachers with extensive keyboarding experience.

The skill of touch typing is needed more than ever in today’s learning environment.  Unfortunately, most schools today are not able to teach touch typing to the level of speed and accuracy that students can retain. If computer keyboarding skills do not become “second nature,” students develop bad habits like “hunt-and-peck” methods which are hard to break. We teach proper hand placement to help prevent carpel tunnel syndrome.

Software alone is not always enough. With live in class instruction our teachers will provide your student with one-on-one attention. Most students need a teacher who understands how the mind and fingers learn this skill. Repetitive stress injuries can develop if proper hand placement and finger techniques are not learned.

Computer keyboarding is even more important now that most schools will not be teaching cursive. Young children must transition from printing to touch typing without being properly taught this skill.

Touch typing is a life-skill that improves efficiency for homework and future employment. Proper keyboarding happens without the sense of sight and when your child no longer needs to find the keys they can focus on the content and write faster.

We motivate our students with success, games, and rewards. Our teachers can assess problem areas and re-teach efficient touch-typing skills.

  • A small classroom experience
