Does your child struggle with keyboarding or simply need to learn to touch type? If your child resorts to hunting and pecking, even after they’ve taken keyboarding courses in school, then Karina’s individualized sessions will help them develop the automatic sensorimotor skills required for efficient touch typing.

In this day and age, good keyboarding skills are critical for the production of written work. If mastered at a young age, these skills will bring many years of benefit, including increased fluidity of thought, improved processing speed, and for some, an increased willingness to write.

Getting off to the right start is essential. It’s more effective for children to learn how to type using proper finger-key associations than to develop bad habits that become increasingly difficult to change as time goes by.

Karina’s typing class, along with her customized keyboard, teaches children to touch type in as little as 4 – 8 sessions. Comparatively, many students attend 1 – 2 years of typing class in school without mastering these skills.

Children who will benefit from this program are those who:

  • Want to learn and/or master the foundational life skill of keyboarding
  • Have slow or laborious written output
  • Have dysgraphia and/or dyslexia
  • Think faster than they can write
  • Don’t sufficiently express their knowledge when they put pencil to paper

What Students will accomplish:

  • Attain basic touch typing skills in 4 – 8 sessions, including all letters and basic punctuation keys
  • 1st – 2nd graders will average 5 – 7 words a minute, with 90% accuracy
  • 3rd – 4th graders will average 6 – 12 words a minute, with 90% accuracy
  • 5th – 6th graders will average 10 – 20 words a minute, with 90% accuracy
  • 7th, 8th, & 9th graders will average 15 – 35 words a minute, with 90% accuracy

Program logistics:

  • Rolling enrollment for weekly sessions
  • Rolling enrollment for 8-session keyboarding intensives offered in 2 week sessions, Tuesdays – Fridays, at 6-6:50pm
  • Individual and semi-private lessons are available
