St Tiernan Community School, Balally, Dundrum, 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’ 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 Dundrum centre is located in St Tiernan’s Community School
My name is Lily Crowley.
I am from Co. Galway and am working as a class teacher in a Reading School , teaching children with Dyslexia.
I have lots of experience as a result of helping students find their way through the education system. I love teaching touch typing as it is a skill that will help unlock future success for many.
I will be there to encourage your child to both work at their own pace and challenge themselves as they get more comfortable with the programme. I look forward to meeting you and your child at the Dundrum Centre.
