I'd suggest getting a typing tutor program that will help teach you how to touchtype.
I taught myself to type when I was a kid using my Grandmother's old manual and a set of records from the 1950s.
Best danged thing I ever did. I was a history major in college, and I was one of a relative few number of my classmates who could actually type, and we did a lot of papers. I made a LOT of money typing for my friends. I can now type between 70 and 100 words a minute, depending on my hands are feeling (arthritis).
It can be a little frustrating at first, but being able to type in today's online world is a very useful skill.
Even if you only get up to 25 words a minute you'll find it to be a complete and total revelation.
