  1. I’d like to find someone to come to my kids school and teach a keyboarding class in la. Do you know anyone?

    1. I don’t know anyone in Louisiana who could do that. I do have an online class for students–you can look at. It includes teachers manuals, student workbooks, and videos for students. Here’s the link. Please note: If you buy the student workbooks, you get the videos and teacher manuals for free.

      This is intended as a student-paced, student-directed keyboarding course that fits into any curriculum

    1. How funny–I read la as Louisiana!

      Can you provide a few details? There are kid’s tech groups who do that–for a fee. Are you looking for a teacher? A volunteer? During school or after?

  2. Thanks! I was looking for someone to come to our school in Hollywood and teach an after school class one day a week for some kids. I may have found someone. It’s just that they won’t do it if they are on their own, no matter how fun they make the games. And, no, not a volunteer. I found one tech group that I am researching now. Thanks!

    1. I already added it. I love finding keyboarding resources that teach one row at a time. Too often, programs start with home row and then it’s a free-for-all. Some teachers like more order in their instruction.

      You’ll see it on this list.
