Here are some tips that’ll help:
1. Type with the pads of your fingers, not your nails
2. Keep your eyes off the keyboard. Instead look at the screen or the source you’re typing from.
3. From time to time, practice your speed by “air typing” conversations around you.
4. Make it fun by participating in a typing game: play.typeracer.com
5. When practicing, forget about typos. Ignore them and just keep going.
