Well if you want to improve on 3x3 I would start by learning 2 look OLL and 2 Look PLL. I am doing that right now and I used to be 35 seconds and now i am 25-30 seconds. Then learn the whole CFOP method. Here is the website i use to practice.
Algs and CFOP Method- JPerm.net
Timer- CS TImer
I type my times using a Yuxin Timer.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions, but to be honest, I really don't need "learn x to get faster" tips. I know what I need to do to get faster, and I've already learned most of what's been suggested. It's a common difference between a younger cuber and an older one. I learn new stuff before I really get quick at the previous skills. I don't have very much in muscle memory.
Anyway, not to sound ungrateful, but I'm okay to progress at a slower pace and I'm aware of most of the things I need to do next.
So just to be clear, I use cfop 3LLL. My 6yo uses beginner CFOP (4LLL) and my 4yo uses beginner method, and his pb was for 3x3, not 4x4, lol.

Now that I've finished pll, I can focus on spamming solves, and I think my times are really going to start coming down.
Today I got a new single pb: 34.55
And a new Ao5 49.2
And my ao50 and Ao100 are getting closer to sub 1min.

Well it's been a while, but my Ao100 is now sub 1 minute, and given that I only have ~700 timed solves, I'm calling myself sub-1 now. I usually get in the 40s or 50s, unless I screw up a perm or something, in which case I get like 1:15 or more, which drives my average way up.

My best ao12 is 49.75

What a sweet achievement! Consistency on algs should come naturally as it slowly gets ingraved in your brain as muscle memory.
