Keyboarding Without Tears

Grade Levels

We teach pre-keyboarding and keyboarding by grade, beginning with the easiest typing skills first and becoming more challenging as children progress through each grade level.

Our simplified approach ensures consistency as students improve their touch typing skills from kindergarten through fifth grade.
