Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing

Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing


Had an old version of Mavis Beacon. Excellent. Taught me to touch-type. Might have been no. 8. Takes a few fingers at a time to learn all the keys.




You are expected to write the student's paper for them, and if they are unhappy with it, you get a low rating. Try to correct that. Wyzant doesn't care about the tutors, just about keeping the students coming back the next time a paper is due. That's what you see: "My paper is due in two days, can you help me?" "Help" means to write it for them. Difficult to get students. Policies favor the student or Wyzant, not the tutor. Better to put a ad on a local bulletin board.
