Class Experience

I have been teaching online for about 15 years, and I have a Masters Degree in Teaching and Learning with Technology that I completed in an online program. I am also a Homeschool mom for 20+ years. I have taught multiple students to read, write, type, and various other subjects over the years. I enjoy finding that right method to help students learn best that is unique to them. :) 
Student will need to complete assignments weekly to help improve their skills to be able to move to the intermediate and advanced typing classes. All students will be given a letter grade during each lesson they complete.
 2 files available upon enrollment
