Our approach

Carefully designed curriculum

Our core curriculum has been carefully designed and tested in conjunction with UCL. Beginning with easy to understand drag and drop block-based coding in Scratch Jr and progressing through to text-based languages used in industry, such as Python and JavaScript, our tuition service allows your child to learn at their own pace. All of our core curriculum topics are tutored at standard pricing, if you are looking for tuition in a specialist topic please see specialised pricing and get in touch with a member of the team.

Monitoring and progression

In your child's trial session their tutor will assess their coding ability and suggest a learning plan to help progress their skills should you book a package with us. Once you have booked your package your child's tutor will create their learning plan, with goals and lesson plans to keep the sessions on track. At the end of your package, you will be sent a report on your child's learning, written by their tutor, to give you an idea of what they have learned and how they can continue to develop their coding skills in their next package!

Technical set-up

We ask that every student has access to a laptop or computer with a high-speed internet connection, a webcam, a headset/earphones, and a microphone. Before each session we will provide instructions on setting up our video conference software as well as any further information about relevant coding platforms and technical requirements for that particular session.

If you need to reschedule a lesson for any reason, please give us at least 24 hours notice either contacting your tutor or a member of our team at hello@blueshiftcoding.com and we will do our best to move the session for you. 

If your child is feeling unwell, we might be able to reschedule your lesson up to 2 hours before the lesson is supposed to start for online tuition, and up to 4 hours before the lesson is due to start for in-person tuition.

Missing a lesson

Please be aware that if you miss a lesson for any reason and do not give us at least 24 hours notice we will take this as a no-show and charge you the full rate of this session without an opportunity to reschedule, as we must compensate our tutors for their time.
