Slaying my numbers demon

I had a great typing teacher in high school.  Ms. Johnson taught us proper hand position by taping strips of thumbtacks below the space bar.  You learned quickly to keep those wrists UP!   I thank her for my typing speed today.  Unfortunately, Ms. Johnson got sick the day we were doing numbers, so I never learned to do them properly.  I have to hunt-and-peck numbers to this day.

But not for much longer!  I'm going to be a numbers whiz in no time with TypingWeb, an online typing  tutor.  The best part?  It's free and doesn't even require registration if you don't want to track your progress.  The lessons are divided into different levels, and there are clear diagrams of where to put your hands and what fingers you should be using to type each letter.  Typewriter

This site seems like it would be helpful for those job seekers and others who are just starting out with a computer and need basic lessons, along with people (like me!) who have a certain skill they would like to improve.

If you check it out, let me know what you think!  Do you have other sites you use with new typists?

Meanwhile, I'll be typing away:  23 70 59 94 85 79 35 89.......
