GS Typing Tutor teaches individuals how to type with proper form and technique. These days, nearly everyone uses a computer on a daily basis. Countless people still don't type with proper technique, which leads to slow, error-filled typing. The ability to utilize all 10 fingers for typing is an incredible skill that shouldn't be undervalued. Unfortunately, the average person cannot teach themselves this skill. It's better to learn the proper technique from a program or teacher to ensure proper typing skills.

Currently, GS Typing Tutor offers various training modes to help users. Dozens of typing lessons are available in the standard program. A number of typing games are thrown into the mix as well. Plus, customization options for each lesson are available to provide more or less of a challenge. Users can instead target the areas they're weak in when it comes to typing as well. Plenty of modes and features are thrown into the mix, and most users will find hours upon hours of educational content for learning to type properly.

Learning to type requires practice, practice, and more practice. For better or worse, there's no way to get around this practice requirement. Repetition and a focus on mechanics are necessary in order to type well. GS Typing Tutor succeeds on these fronts by offering multiple lessons and targeting areas where many people underperform. Therefore, the program focuses on typing with each finger and hitting the appropriate keys. Users essentially exercise their fingers to maximize typing speed and efficiency.

While GS Typing Tutor teaches typing in excellent fashion, the program is somewhat dated. The user interface of the program is somewhat lackluster and ugly. On top of that, some of the games contained in the program are frustrating rather than educational. GS Typing Tutor offers a lot of resources and valuable lessons. Minor annoyances and gripes persist while using the program, and many users will surely notice these issues. Nothing makes the program unusable, though, which makes these problems minor rather than major.

In the end, anyone can benefit from using GS Typing Tutor. The program is designed for novice typists, but even experts will enjoy the education and practice. Only a handful of issues prevent the program from being great. A number of better options are available on the market, and potential users will want to keep that in mind. Without a doubt, GS Typing Tutor is worth giving a try to learn proper typing skills. Such skills are invaluable in today's world, and not everyone uses proper form to type today.
