Typesy Homeschool Review

I must confess, I never learned proper typing skills. I wish I had paid attention and learned, but I still wing it, even as an adult who works on a computer. I am peeking at my hands while typing this. When Typesy contacted me about reviewing their Typesy Homeschool product, I jumped at the chance. I was initially very impressed with their website, and the idea of getting to improve my own typing skills and also teaching my kids was a big win in my book!

Incorrect typing technique makes kids do everything more slowly when working on a computer. Correct touch typing makes it easier to type assignments, do research, and communicate. Typesy Homeschool includes a comprehensive curriculum based on the science of muscle memory and structured repetition. It includes step-by-step video teaching, effective exercises, and fun games. typesy-box-hs

As a parent, you have complete visibility and easy control – you are the teacher of your own mini homeschool class with Typesy. You can control every aspect of your child’s learning, assignment, and assessment. Typesy constantly monitors your child’s progress and adapts to their needs. Each lesson is customized for their current skill level. I loved how it progressed slowly, giving enough time to master each section.


Typesy uses the latest video technology to give students ultra-personal help. All instruction comes from your child’s personal teacher in stunning video quality.

Typesy’s game-like experience offers rewards and game status for achieving typing goals. Kids can build their avatars, collect points, and play games – all while they learn to type like a pro. Even I enjoyed many of the games!


Typesy stores everything in the cloud and all your computers automatically stay in sync. You get unlimited installs on all your Windows, Mac, iPad and Chromebook devices. Start training on one device, and continue right where you left off on the next.

Before introducing Typesy to my daughter, who is in 4th grade, I tried it out myself. After all, I need practice too. I absolutely LOVE it. Honestly. It is simple, well organized, not too ‘cutesy’ and it is very effective. I can’t say I loved the repetition but I know it is good for me. I played a few of the games, and those were really fun.

Typesy Homeschool Review-3

My daughter gave it a try and it was very helpful. She caught on quickly thanks to the great video instruction. She did get pretty frustrated with her WPM and accuracy, but I encouraged her to just do her best at her own pace. You can control the goals for WPM and accuracy, so I probably need to lower them so she doesn’t feel discouraged. I can’t say she loves typing as a subject, she’s pretty strong-willed and would rather just do things her way. Hmmmm, wonder where she got that from?

We plan to continue using Typesy, even if she doesn’t particularly want to learn to type properly. I’m fun like that. I plan to continue using it myself also. Maybe I can finally reach my goal of never looking at my hands when I type! I definitely recommend Typesy Homeschool if you are looking for a typing program.
