Don't just take our word for it - here's what some of our students say:
"I have been practising my Teeline using your lessons for the past few months. The exercises are really good and I have seen an improvement in a very short time. This gives people like me the opportunity to practice using their shorthand when they want to. Alison and Liz have been brilliant. I was surprised to get replies so quickly when I had a query. I want to thank them both for their support and being there for me. Thank you!"
"I am so glad that I found you!! I love the fact that there is no software to install. Now I can practice my shorthand anywhere I go. I even checked in when I was on holiday and the weather wasn't so good. The hotel had wifi and I was able to do my daily practice! The more I look into it, the more I love it. Thanks again."
"What I liked the most about learning Teeline online is its flexibility and convenience. Online learning is very convenient since you can complete the assignments anywhere at any time on the gold level. What eased my fears about the online course was the help of a personal tutor."
The pandemic has meant that we are all having to work a bit differently. We are now offering you personal one to one lessons via Zoom (or Skype etc.,) with access to the online lessons and Platinum level support.
