About this centre

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’ skills 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 in 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 Cork City centre is located in Alphamaths.

Hello, my name is Stephen Meaney, and I am the Searsol touch-typing tutor in Cork 
Having graduated from Cork Institute of Technology with a degree in Engineering, I 
worked in the engineering field for almost 20 years before I changed careers.  I now 
currently own and operate a tuition centre in the heart of Cork City and have been 
helping students of all ages and ability to reach their potential for over 10 years.   
I believe that understanding the students needs and having the knowledge and 
patience to address those needs are key to success.  
am particularly looking forward to teaching students how to touch-type in a 
friendly environment.  I believe they will reap the rewards from it no matter where 
life takes them. 
I look forward to welcoming you to the Centre!
