Preferred by Teachers!
Typing Instructor for Kids is the preferred typing program for teachers and school districts across the U.S. and Canada.†

My students can’t wait to get to the typing lab and practice keyboarding. Your program makes learning to type so much fun—and their parents are thrilled. They know how important it is for their kids to learn touch-typing at an early age.
— Bethany Wang, Oliveira Elementary School, Fremont, California
Our old typing program was boring and the kids were unmotivated. Now they can’t wait to get to Typer Island! We have seen a dramatic improvement in the touch-typing skills of our students. Typing Instructor for Kids is fantastic!
— Susan Siegel, Librarian/Director, Computer Lab, Conway, Massachusetts
Keyboarding is one of the most useful skills we teach our students, it can be boring and dry. When I saw Typing Instructor, it stood out from all of the other programs. I immediately loved its great appeal and fun factor.
