Malahide Community College, , Malahide, Co 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 Malahide centre is located in Malahide Community College.
I’m Ann Byrne and I am a Tutor at the Searsol Malahide Centre. I am fully qualified computer instructor. Through my commitment to supporting young adults, I believe education gives numerous opportunities and encourages further education through motivation and sacrifice.
The Searsol typing class offers an amazing opportunity to obtain a life skill for children and young adults aged 8-17. The program is designed to record accuracy and speed in which students can monitor their progress every week in a friendly and fun environment.
My weekly interaction with students enables me to develop a true appreciation for what can be achieved and admiration for the students I have taught. I look forward to welcoming you into the Centre as you begin your own Searsol journey.
