Calum, Expert Teacher
BSc Sound for Film, Television and Games, Southampton Solent University
I really enjoy coming up new ways to explain nebulous computer science concepts in a way that my students can understand easily. Everybody learns in different ways, and it is really satisfying when you find just the right analogy to make an idea click with a pupil!

I started coding back in 2009 while studying to become an audio engineer. It began as an elective on my undergrad degree and quickly became an obsession! I have always been interested in how the things around me worked, so when I was creating sound for film and video games it was only naturally that I wanted to learn how the digital tools I was using every day worked under the hood! One of the best things about coding is that there is always an awesome way that you can engage with the things that you are really passionate about through it. We live in a digital world and computers are everywhere, so matter where you end up in life or what you end up doing, you’ll always be glad that you know how to code! The more you know about the digital world, the better you can engage with it as a digital citizen.

If you need to reschedule a lesson for any reason, please give us at least 24 hours notice by either contacting your tutor or a member of our team at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Can I have tuition with more than one child at a time?Yes. Please be aware that with each child added to a session we increase the price by 0.5. For example, online tutoring with a 'Teacher' teaching our core curriculum would cost £50ph for one child and £75ph for two children. If you would like group tuition please either book a consultation, fill out an enquiry form or contact us directly at email@example.com.
How often can I have sessions?Our tutoring service is completely bespoke, so whether you would like one session a week or three, we'll match you with a tutor who is able to meet your needs.
Is my child the right age for tutoring?We tutor children aged 5-16 years old. Each lesson is specially adapted to your child so that our tutors are able to guide them through their journey from block-based to text-based coding as they mature and progress!
