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 Lucan centre is located in St Kevin’s Community School.

My name is Sean Carthy and I am the Tutor at our Searsol Lucan centre.

Education is both my passion and my vocation. Having graduated from Waterford Institute of Technology with a Business degree. After working for thirteen years in the technology industry, I decided to pursue my lifelong ambition of working in education.

I joined Searsol in 2008 as a Tutor delivering after school touch typing and computer classes to children. During my years in this role, I garnered a very deep knowledge of the Searsol typing courses. My daily interaction with students enabled me to develop a true appreciation for what can be achieved through the Searsol typing classes. I have witnessed first-hand thousands of Searsol students develop their confidence and typing skills through strategic, individualised instruction of the Searsol typing classes.

My vastly experienced team and I are passionate about ensuring that every student that walks through the doors of our Searsol centre is given the best opportunity possible to reach their potential. We aim for each student on every class day to leave the centre with an improvement in their typing skills, giving them the confidence to use these newly acquired typing skills in their daily routine.

We look forward to welcoming you into the centre as you begin your own Searsol journey.
