About this centre

Connect with us on social media

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’ skill 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 Cabinteely centre is located in Cabinteely Community School.

 

Hello, my name is Patrick Faull and I am the Searsol touch-typing tutor at the Cabinteely Centre.

I have been showing people how to get the best out of their computer applications and their keyboard for many years. I am currently working as a part-time resource and home tuition teacher at a local secondary school.  I have a reputation for showing empathy, patience and understanding to all my students, but especially to the more ‘reluctant’ ones.

I particularly enjoy showing young people how to touch-type properly in a fun and relaxed way.  If students can get this particularly important key skill under their belts when they are young, they will reap enormous benefits from it later in life when they go to college or start work.

I try to provide a very user-friendly and informal learning environment for students when they are on the typing course. I look forward to welcoming you to the Centre and seeing your progress from week to week.
