Tired of typing with one or two fingers? Do you look back and forth at the keyboard and screen? This class will get you on your way to touch typing, which is using all your fingers on the keys and keeping your eyes on the screen (and not looking at the keyboard.) Touch typing skills will help you with speed and accuracy with your work, whether you are a student, use the computer keyboard at work, or simply for personal use. It's time to give your neck some relief, stop the hunt-and-peck method and get up to speed now in the 21st Century. It takes a bit of learning, and a bunch of practice and drills. But with practice, you'll be touch-typing.
