TypingTutor is a program that can help us learn touch typing by following a series of exercises while monitoring our progress and tracking the results.

TypingTutor offers a simple interface that requires us to frequently use our mouse in order to switch or continue lessons.

It keeps detailed statistics about our WPM rates, problem keys and other details, and allows us to target and improve our weak areas.
