Old computer keyboards used to have a separate delete key that allowed you to take a character away from in front of the cursor instead of behind it. You can still do this on Macs today by using fn+delete. It even works in conjunction with other modifier keys. So you can use fn+option+delete to delete the whole word in front of the cursor.
