Hartstown Community School, Blakestown, Blanchardstown, Dublin,
The Searsol centre enables children from the age of eight upwards to learn the skill of touch typing. Our unique training method focuses on enabling children to work independently, giving them confidence in their typing abilities. They progress through small steps to gradually develop their accuracy and typing speed. Unlike traditional tuition, Searsol fosters students’ skills in self-learning, building confidence, and lessening reliance on a teacher.
Our typing course is suitable for all children from the age of eight upwards. We work with children that have learning differences such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, or other learning differences.
Your child will be initially assessed by the Searsol tutor to determine what they can achieve on our typing course. Your child will visit their local Searsol centre once a week, where their Tutor will observe their typing and ensure that they are using the right technique. Searsol’s aim is to develop each child into a confident, independent, and enthusiastic learner
Our Blanchardstown centre is located in Hartstown Community School.
My name is Collette Simpson and I have been working within the community as a professional tutor for over five years now. I have worked with all age groups, from primary school-aged children to retired adults. Previously, having worked within the private sector for big corporate companies for almost 20 years in different office roles, I knew this was not my calling.
I returned to education as a mature student to follow my dreams of working as a teacher/tutor. I graduated from Maynooth University with a Double honors degree and also level 8 certifications. Learning is never-ending. I have been working with Searsol in the after-school touch typing classes for over a year now. This has allowed me to work with the students – who may prefer typing over writing or how typing works better for them than writing – to help nurture and help enhance their typing abilities. With a little encouragement and guidance, I get to watch these students grow in confidence while learning their way around the keyboard. That is the satisfaction of the job for me, everyone is happy walking away from the learning experience
