About us

 Sarah Holt

I started Typing's Cool in 2009 with my husband, Nick.  Our daughter went through her secondary school education with no recognition or help for her dyslexia and at the time there seemed little available to help her.  We were fortunate in that we had good links with a leading educational psychologist who helped us to set up Typing's Cool as a weekly club in our local primary schools.  I have been able to draw on my own background as a qualified secondary PSHE teacher to use a coaching approach that bathes our learners in positivity and a supportive framework where it is impossible not to succeed.  It's great to be a resource for parents as we have been through such a challenging journey with our own daughter.

I began my teaching career as a secondary SEN teacher in a Surrey Comprehensive school where in trained in neurological approaches to helping learners.  A number of our learners have dyslexia type issues and touch typing has become their invisible superpower to unlock their academic success.

I support students with disabilities as a note taker which I started studying for my MPhil in Health Economics at Kingston University.  I help run some of the Typing's Cool school clubs such as Putney High School and Rokeby School.  I also teach typing in learners' homes and the youngest I have worked with is a five year old!  I have been the President of the Kingston University Yoga Club and I like toto create a calm, relaxed but focused atmosphere in our clubs.

I am a professional tennis coach and it's fun seeing some of my typing students at our  kids tennis sessions. I have always been passionate about performance and being the best I can  to achieve my dreams.  So I hope I am a role model for our students when they are finding it tough and progress seems so slow.

I learnt to type as a teenager growing up in Spain on an old fashioned manual typewriter which explains my incredibly strong fingers!  I can easily type 80 words per minute.  I am a professional actress and I enjoy helping with clubs and holiday courses when I am not on set.  During course sessions I take learners through stretches to stay relaxed and comfortable.
