We offer private programming lessons. The lessons are taught one-on-one and tailored to the individuals skill level and ambitions. An emphasis is placed on following "best practices", having fun and laying a foundation of basic programming skills that can be built on and turned into a lifelong career.
We explore multiple programming languages and environments which is especially great for young teens wishing to explore programming as a career. Students also get space on our web server to make their own website and show off thier creations. Make sure your child really enjoys computer programming before paying university costs for it!
Student must have access to a computer for their lessons and homework. Internet access is not required, but helpful.
Classes are one hour long, cost $40 per week and payable at the beginning of each months first class.
Success is related to the time spent playing and experimenting with the skills taught. Serious students will not only do their homework but experiment on their own. All students are welcome to bring up their own programming ideas and goals. When realistic to their skill level these programming ideas can be integrated into the lessons. Seeing their own game or programming idea come to life can really motivate a student and boost their self esteem.
