What is TTRS?
TTRS is a typing course that teaches keyboarding, develops reading and spelling skills, builds confidence and motivates learners to succeed.
For over 25 years, TTRS has offered a comprehensive touch-typing course based on a structured program of phonics. The program aims to build literacy skills and increase confidence and self-esteem in users as they master the art of keyboarding. Because it takes a multi-sensory approach to tuition, TTRS is also suitable for users who struggle with physical impairments and specific learning difficulties, like dyslexia.
