Possible issues:

Sometimes the text can appear rather chunky and difficult to read onscreen. First try resizing the browser window you are using. If still poor then download them by RIGHT clicking on the link and select 'Save Link As' or Save Target As' or similar depending on which browser you are using.

If all else fails you can also download standalone .exe versions of these tutorials using the download links below. HOWEVER - Windows will whinge that they might be unsafe and make it difficult to run them. I suggest you click 'Download'. Wait for the download to finish then you will need to select to save an run the file. The exact action varies depending on which browser you are using. I can guarantee they are safe to run.
