And if you can truly convince me that you already know how to type smoothly and easily—using all the proper fingers, and without looking down at the keyboard!—then I'll say:

"Okay, you don't need to do the typing homework."

Can I work ahead? (Can I do homework in advance?)

Yes.

Theoretically, you could go home tonight and do all 585 lessons on Typing Club, and you would be finished with your homework for the year.

Needless to say, a more practical approach is to get in the habit of doing four Typing Club lessons per day, five days per week.

Do you accept late work?

Yes, I accept late work until the final week of the grading period. To be clear:
