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 Dublin 9 centre is located in St Aidan’s CBS.

My name is Angela Burke and I am the Searsol Tutor at the Artane Centre.  I have a background in Financial Services but have changed direction and am now qualified as a Tutor

I worked with adults and children in a classroom setting and have often noticed that they are lacking in typing skills that would enable them to use computers to their full benefit.  I really enjoy working with people to enable them to build their self-confidence and develop their life skills.
Searsol typing classes provide an opportunity for children to learn how to type in a fun and friendly environment. Students can improve their accuracy and speed, while working at their own pace, and monitor their progress each week.
I aim to provide a very positive learning experience for the students and look forward to welcoming your child as they begin their learning journey with Searsol.

I look forward to meeting you as you begin your Searsol journey!
