Testimonials and Reviews

10/10 I have been tutoring a student with Down syndrome using TTRS. He has made impressive progress after several months, this after I was not able to teach him with other methods. His self confidence also increased in the process.

There has been a marked improvement in my son’s spelling since he started using Touch-type Read and Spell.

More importantly, I have seen an almost 180° turn-around in his confidence and attitude towards spelling, reading and schoolwork in general.

The TTRS program doesn't make him feel like a little child, which is a big deal for a 12/13 year-old boy. It also doesn’t make him feel stupid or like he is behind his peers. He feels capable of spending 10 to 15 minutes a day typing, without feeling overwhelmed or like it is a "special class" that only he needs.

My son refers to TTRS as his typing course, without embarrassment. He still gets others to proofread his writing, but he does the initial draft himself with little fuss.

Also, my former non-reader actually asked for books for Christmas this year! He definitely has a ways to go, but he now sees that improvement is possible for him.

He loves Humanities 8 in which the teacher is aware of his challenges. She has said he is doing well.

In November, he had a lead role in a class re-enactment of a book. This last week he has been working on a writing assignment that develops argument skills and critical analysis.

He will present it in front of the class today and is definitely nervous, but not saying he refuses to go. He wrote out his argument, his dad proofread it and he has been practicing it.

I cannot thank TTRS enough for providing this course. The changes in my son are already profound and I can't wait to see what the next few months bring.

10/10 I had heard good things about TTRS and to be honest it wasn’t very expensive. I homeschool and this programme has been invaluable. I would certainly encourage anyone on the fence to try it! With the new gamification that has been added and printable certificates, it just keeps getting better and better!
