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 Dundrum centre is located in St Tiernan’s Community School

My name is Elaine O’Loughlin. I graduated from MTU – Kerry Campus with a Bachelor of Business Studies degree specialising in Accounting. However, I soon discovered Accounting was not for me so I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a primary school teacher. I then completed the Professional Masters of Education with Hibernia College. It was the best decision I ever made as I really enjoy working with children and nurturing advances in education. I am very proud to be a tutor with Searsol as it is the leading provider of touch typing courses in Ireland since 2008. I work in both the Dundrum and Monkstown centres and it gives me great fulfillment to provide after-school touch typing lessons to students with learning differences. I deliver the course in a very positive manner and each student works at their own pace. I look forward to welcoming your child and guiding them on their journey to becoming a touch typing whizz.
