Want to rocket boost your start on touch-typing? Get quick results? Private Instruction is the way to go! Classes are tailored to the student. A minimum of four hours is required for complete instruction in The KEYTIME®  Method Basic Course. This introductory touch-typing course teaches finger paths for letters, capitalization, punctuation, and horizontal numbers. For best results, it is important to practice after each session. Materials are included. Enrollment options available for 4, 8, 10, or 12 hours of instruction. 

Practice! Practice! Practice! Practice is key! As with any new skill, practice is required. Allot adequate time (at least 30 minutes to an hour) outside of class for assignment completion (varies by student). Your Path to Success: Upon course completion, plan to practice for 7 consecutive days for about an hour (four 15-minute segments; three 20-minute segments; two 30-minute segments; one 60-minute segment). This will be the first part of the 30-day Practice Plan included as part of the course.

Form Your Own: Don’t see a schedule that meets your needs? Then form your own class of 2 or 3 students! Cost starts at $720.00 regardless of course selected. Cost includes materials and a minimum of 8 hours of instruction (maximum of 10 hours). Classes must be prearranged and prepaid. Formed groups are non-refundable. .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to learn more. To prevent scheduling conflicts, please review our calendar for availability before requesting a class.

Ages 10-Adult: 4 or 5 Session Standard Courses of either 5 sessions at 2 hours daily or 4 sessions at 2-1/2 hours each. Ages 9 in 4th Grade: Just for 9’s! classes are 90-minutes to 2 hours daily for 5 sessions. Ages 7-9 (3rd Grade and younger): Kids Academy! classes are 5 sessions: First and last session at 2 hours each plus 3 sessions at 1-1/2 hours each.Give young children an early advantage! This class is for ages 7-9 in 2nd-3rd grade. This class is not suitable for students going into 4th grade or above (please select an age appropriate class: Just for 9’s or Basic-Standard-Enhanced). Students begin forming good keyboarding habits during this course. Young students learn quickly in our Kids Academy with KEYbird© and TYPEDancing©! Choose from standard Qwerty keyboard layout or Dvorak (taught by special arrangement). Practice outside of class is important—please allot ample time for this. Amount needed will vary by student. The TYPEDancing© video can be viewed as much as is needed for proficiency (or as often as the student wishes). A DVD player is needed.

Ages 7-9 attend five 90 minute - 2 hour sessions. Initially, students learn with game cards and songs. Keyboards are gradually introduced based on the individual’s progress. Activities start with keyboards where letters are visible and move to keyboards with the letters covered—as the student’s ability increases. Students who progress rapidly, through the TYPEDancing for Kids© program, will be issued additional materials to continue their keyboarding journey. Practice, practice, practice! Students will need to practice at home. Please allow adequate time for this activity; varies by student. Practicing at least 30 minutes per day for a month will greatly improve their typing skills. This can be done in 10 or 15 minute increments.

All Form Your Own Classes require a prepaid setup fee and will not be confirmed without payment. Please review the KEYTIME Cancellation Policy before paying.
