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 This program has heaps of impact. The kids who are dyslexic love it!
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!
10/10 I chose TTRS as it had all of the components I was looking for: it taught typing using actual words, showed which fingers to use, and targeted spelling skills.
My children are in Lessons 12 and 14 and their spelling has drastically improved. I hear them say “I know how to spell that word, I learned it in typing!” all the time.
They can both type above 40 wpm (and have even reached 50 wpm!) with a great accuracy rate. I couldn’t be happier. They are in 4th and 6th grade.
10/10 I teach dyslexic children. Students seem to like the structure of TTRS. Parents report progress at school and we sometimes hear back from past students who are now studying at university or working and using touch-typing in their jobs.
10/10 My kids really enjoy this typing program.
10/10 It’s just a brilliant learning system that my kids can use at their own pace and it’s helps their reading and spelling too.
10/10 This is an excellent programme. It's easy to use and mange, and has excellent customer service.
10/10 This is an excellent programme that's helping me improve my knowledge and speed - I wish I had taken the course years ago!
10/10 TTRS was recommended by a literacy professional. Both of our children can try to rush through it so they do need a little supervision to do it properly.
10/10 My child was struggling in his typing class at school so I wanted him to practice with this program at home. He really enjoys the modules and it helped him bring his typing grade up to an A. It has also improved his spelling. We are very satisfied with the TTRS program.
10/10 TTRS is an excellent programme which is easy to deliver and monitor. Pupils respond positively, making incremental progress, and their confidence grows as they complete more and more modules.
10/10 My son is doing very well with this program.
8/10 I chose TTRS because my son has dysgraphia. He needs to know how to type and also needs help with his spelling. He's had a good experience with the program and enjoys the lessons.
10/10 I wanted a typing program that would not add a lot of prep time for me. My children are able to log in to the program and do it on their own. They are both very impressive at typing now!
10/10 We chose TTRS because it covers a plethora of skills: typing, reading, and spelling and it boosts our son's confidence as a student struggling with dyslexia and dysgraphia. My son can easily get overwhelmed with added tasks, but TTRS is something he enjoys. He has more autonomy to choose how many lessons he wants to do. He has commented on how he remembers to spell the words after the drills. The typing is easy, and he usually does more than the required lessons. Children with learning difficulties need to feel successful and TTRS does just that, while addressing their learning needs. It’s a win-win for our family!
10/10 TTRS provides small manageable chunks of learning that my son with dyslexia and ADHD can manage without being overwhelmed. I have just recommended it to a friend yesterday!
10/10 I chose TTRS because I wanted to help my students attain automaticity with spelling so their creative writing skills could flourish.
10/10 I love that my kids are learning typing while also reinforcing reading and spelling. I've been so impressed with their ability to complete the dictation modules with ease, being that they are 6 and 8 and we've only just begun homeschooling with more formal language arts instruction.
