Note that this course presumes that you already know how to write both in print and in cursive. It was designed for adults and will not be helpful for young children.
This self-paced Improve Your Handwriting eCourse will act as your go-to for developing handwriting that you’re proud of! The course walks you through several techniques and drills in the thorough TPK style that learners love. The goal isn’t to radically alter your handwriting (it should still represent you, after all), but you will learn how to write with:
- Better spacing – Cross Drills help you to keep the spacing between your letters consistent!
- A more relaxed grip – Thanks to Relaxation Drills, you’ll learn how to write without tension, leading to polished letters.
- Confident and smooth strokes – As a result of filling out all the drills in the worksheet. Confident strokes always lead to impressive writing!
If you don’t quite understand how to do something, there’s a “Discussion” portion under each lesson where you can ask questions! All lessons include a short quiz and homework assignments.
