Produces a Grin

Reviewed by Parent/Teacher

We've been using Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing software (the adult version, not the kids version), and my 10yo just told me yesterday that she typed 120 wpm with no mistakes on her most recent timed test. It was one of those moments when you calmly say, "That's great, honey!" and then walk around with a silly grin on your face the rest of the day :-)

Typing Fun?!

Reviewed by Parent/Teacher

Can typing be fun?! Well I believe it can if you use the right teaching tool! Mavis Beacon is a program that can be used for people of all ages and learning abilities! Why not do something "fun" for school for your children, and yourself, and try this typing tutor?! Your kids will love you for it!

Fun for the whole family!
