TypingMentor is a web-based application specially designed to provide a flexible and user-friendly practice platform to the users to bring about their highest efficacy in typing.
Why touch typing should be learned
It is our primary goal to help you type faster by providing exclusive features and options. Once you are capable of doing 'touch typing' (type using all one's fingers and without looking at the keys) eventually your other computer skills and productivity will improve significantly.
If you type with two fingers the visual and frontal cortices of the brain are compelled to put their focus on the individual key locations. Regular practice of touch typing will help you to remove such unnecessary multitasking pressure from your brain. That is why touch typing should be learned.
Why should you use TypingMentor?
TypingMentor provides you with the most effective common word typing lessons, most common patterns' lessons (letter n-grams), various fingers, and character drills. This is far more effective practice than the kiddy practice games. Typing Mentor will keep monitoring your typing performance and thereby identify your weak areas to guide you with customized lessons in order to help you overcome your typing weaknesses. Hence, in the quickest possible time, you will get rid of all the weaknesses. That’s how you become a pro in real quick time!

Learn how to explore and evaluate TypingMentor reports to assess your performance and accelerate your improvements.
Summary Report will show you the result of your typing test's performance based on speed, accuracy & duration. Go to the stats page, then in the stats section, you will get to know your recent speed as WPM (Word Per Minute), recent accuracy (as a percentage), and the duration that you spent on typing mentor tests.
Tips: If you have both accuracy and speed improving gradually, you are doing everything right. Speed will make over very soon, you are on the right track. If your accuracy and speed are going down, It's not a good sign. If you have a gradual improvement in speed but not an increase in accuracy that means there is a chance your muscle memory is getting built with the wrong techniques. You should look at the other stats to rectify the areas of mistakes and work on that. Do not panic by the stats of 1 or 2 days.
