This is starting to interfere with my work

I need a web-based typing tutor that is aimed at adults who still hunt and peck, not at children who can't type at all.

So, embarrassingly, I have reached my mid-20s and still type with two fingers. And I look at the keyboard, although I generally know where all the keys are. It is time to fix this.
The problem is, I'm overwhelmed when I search for online typing programs- there are hundreds, and there's no way to tell which ones are any good. Also, they mostly seem to be aimed at kids.
I'd really prefer not to pay for a program, but if it's the best option, I will. I don't want to have to install anything, though, because I plan to work on this both at work and at home. It would be nice to have some sort of progress tracker (I plan to work on this for about a half hour each day).
(Also, if you successfully transitioned from a two-finger typer into a Grown-Ass Adult Typer via some other method, how did you do it? How long did it take you? Currently I type 50 wpm, which sucks, but when I try to type 'right' I'm much, much slower...)
